Three hundred multicoloured oaks have been scattered around the Germination X world. These trees are all that remains of an ancient forest and require multiple players to find and sow plants around them in order to rejuvenate them into their former glory. This provides a simple additional community activity as well a first attempt at populating the wide expanses of the Germination X planet with landmarks – something that has been brought up in the focus group studies. There is also now an “oak score” to record the players who contribute bringing them back to life.
Also new today, a tutorial explaining how to do the basic picking and planting as well as some of the more advanced things (which are not so obvious and badly needing explanation) like sending seeds and fruit to other players and using butterflies to find out who planted things.
