Shouldn't that post be in the S2HD forum? But you do bring attention to the fact that the palm trees leaves probably aren't ginormous uber leaves. The opaque parts a probably stems, with lots of little leaves coming off of them. Having seen palm trees all over the fucking place (hate 'em) after moving to Florida, I can say that that's how the leaves are. But that's a helluva lot of work to animate believably, so it's probably going to stay the way it is.
