Looking for realistic landscaping resources (trees, grasses, etc.)

Hi all,

I’m looking for a good resource for models / software in order to add trees bushes, grasses, etc. to architectural exteriors.

I’d rather not hand-model them.

I know of a few commercial pieces of software (The Grove, Vue) but this is, for the time being, for hobby/exploratory use, so the less expensive the better.

My preference is a generator, but pre-built stuff or plugins are fine, too.

Any help appreciated!

Check out UE4, between its training assets and the asset storie it tends to have most all of what I need (and a selection of free assets as well for this) Unity is a good one as well.

I’ve actually used that (UE4) - the assets are compatible with Blender?

UE4 is how I discovered SpeedTree.

It may take a bit of work, but yes they are, ue4 and blender do both have that pbr shader thing going on. it will take a bit of setup to get it going though.

Hi Joseph,

I’m familiar with the Marketplace - not really what I’m looking for, though. I’m hoping to find resources that work without having to go through extra steps.


Evermotion.org has tree packs for Blender.

Thanks, I’ll check it out.

Also, these are offered for free… i think you need to follow them on twitter/gumroad… can’t remember… but i got them for free at least…

edit: Yeah, actually check their facebook page and ask there… they’ll help you get them… Quality looks good on the pictures at least… I haven’t had the time to download yet, so I have no detailed knowledge about them… but they look nice xD
