Features and content:

This asset contains a number of 15 different tree meshes, showcasing different growth stages.

All tree parts are photoscanned separately and redesigned in a natural looking way.

Wind animation and interaction between character/animals/NPCs is fully made shader based!

Only 2 parameters to controll the whole wind settings of all placed foliage.

The interaction is replicated for multiplayer usage and easy to setup.


Performance optimization:

All plant parts are modeled on their own and as compact as possible.

For each big trees, there is a high and low vertex count version to fit the needs of your game.

That results in less quad overdraw and less shader complexity.

Optimized imposter for large landscapes without culling.
