You’re partially right Julesd-g6, but as I mentioned before, gile[s] is not free. One can always use demo version, but it has some limits AFAIK (The biggest one is that it’s demo, so can’t be used on and on). Besides it’s not picey if one would like to use it proffesionally, I just thought that such script could be usefull for enhancing Blender’s users free toolset
@ mandoragon - gen 3 tree script generates trees that are detailed meshes (at last leafs are clipped images), while tree[d] makes specific mixture of clipped bitmap’s billboards (whole branches, leafs) and meshes (trunks) which are safe for Your hardware memory when making game environment or rendering distant trees.
At last it doesn’t look so hard to make tree[d] like tree model by hand, but using generator one can make bunch of various geometries with different proportions (young tree, old tree, oak type shape, willow one like, etc.) ,in really short time without tweaking models vertex by vertex. The most important is tree’s overall shape and proportion, the rest is just texture.
