HAYABUSA DESIGN – CUSTOMIZABLE TREES
HAYABUSA DESIGN have released their latest trees which are fully customizable and yet still retain the scripted branches that move in the wind. In essence, such a tree can be unlinked leaving just the trunk (which contains the script). Included in a set would be separate branches and a variety of trunks. A whole tree can be rebuilt to take into account positioning around a building or within a courtyard, for instance. The level of detail can be altered by adding more branches to make a more realistic tree. When the tree is finished, it is linked using the trunk as the root prim. Thus the script will still work!
