EVERYPlant Ovate Sigillaria 03 --18 Models-- 3D model
Name: Ovate Sigillaria
Scientific: Sigillaria mammillaris
This Variation: 3 of 12
Habitat: Extinct tree-sized lycopsids from the late Carboniferous to the early Permian Period (about 380 to 255 million years ago). It appears to have preferred the mineral soils of river floodplains. This preference for better-drained soils may have allowed it to survive the drying of the great coal swamps that led to the extinction of many tree-sized lycopsids during the middle of the Pennsylvanian Epoch (318 to 299 million years ago).
Range: Fossils have been found in Great Britain, United States, Canada, parts of Asia and Africa.
Notes: Sigillaria had a single trunk, which in older plants often branched to a characteristic Y-shape. Very old plants may further branch. The trunk lacked wood, or had a very slender layer only. Support came from a layer of closely packed leaf bases just below the surface of the trunk, while the center of the trunk was filled with pith. The trunk had photosynthetic tissue on the surface, meaning that it was probably green. Long, thin leaves grew in a spiral along the trunk but persisted only near its growing tip; on lower portions of the plant, where the leaves had fallen off, characteristic polygonal leaf scars remained.
Included in this Package: 18 models in total
- Standard -- 218,684 polygons -- 20.52m tall. Fully mature and in relative health showing the characteristic Y-shaped branching of the trunk. Useable in most scenes and applications.
- Distressed -- 222,944 polygons -- 20.52m tall. Showing an increased level of foliage damage and disease, as well as missing and broken fronds.
- Unhealthy -- 213,417 polygons -- 20.5m tall. In a relatively poor state with much of its foliage missing or diseased.
- Dying -- 194,529 polygons -- 20.51m tall. Plant is just hanging onto life and showing only unhealthy and diseased foliage.
- Dead -- 46,029 polygons -- 10.78m tall. Showing only dead foliage. It's trunk may be broken.
- Uprooted -- 46,058 polygons -- 4.57m tall. Dead or dying plant that has fallen onto it's side. It may be a full length trunk, or a broken one.
- Ancient -- 425,460 polygons -- 25.04m tall. A very old plant showing further branching.
- Young Mature -- 120,682 polygons -- 19.02m tall. Fully matured but not at its full height yet; has not yet developed the Y-shaped branch.
- Young -- 83,543 polygons -- 14.5m tall. Smaller plant some half way through it's maturing cycle.
- Immature -- 30,689 polygons -- 5.82m tall. Plant is small and hasn't reached its mature aspect.
- Sapling -- 13,343 polygons -- 2.28m tall. Very small and young plant.
- No Fruit -- 213,057 polygons -- 20.52m tall. Same as the Standard model but the fruiting spore-pods are not present.
- Less Fruit -- 214,490 polygons -- 20.52m tall. Same as the Standard model but with less fruiting spore-pods.
- More Fruit -- 231,875 polygons -- 20.52m tall. Same as the Standard model but with more fruiting spore-pods.
- Simplified Ancient -- 376,022 polygons -- 24.99m tall. Same as the Ancient model but without displacement. Has less polygons and is intended for mid or distant renders.
- Simplified Mature -- 177,025 polygons -- 20.47m tall. Same as the Standard model but without displacement. Has less polygons and is intended for mid or distant renders.
- Simplified Young Mature -- 94,114 polygons -- 19.01m tall. Same as the Young Mature model but without displacement. Has less polygons and is intended for mid or distant renders.
- Simplified Young -- 70,783 polygons -- 14.5m tall. Same as the Young model but without displacement. Has less polygons and is intended for mid or distant renders.
Re-meshing available upon request, eg adaptive mesh for lower poly count (this is the default setting and is as supplied), uniform mesh for easier editing, strict quads, tris, mixed, poly increase or decrease, etc. No charge to existing customers of the product.
Many other modifications to models also available upon request. No charge to existing customers of the product.
The textures included in this pack are mainly 4k (4096x4096) to cater for detailed renders, this is the default map size and is included in each of the file format download files, no need for seperate downloads. However these may be slow to load or render on some system and may not be necessary in all situations. To allow for this, medium 2k, small 1k, and tiny <1k textures are also available and may be downloaded alongside the various model formats. Different texture sizes can simply be swapped in or out by copying the Maps sub-folder; no need to manipulate the materials in your editor. Please use whichever best suits your system and needs.
EVERYPlant has a mission ... which is to model every plant species in the world (plus some extinct, fantasy and sci-fi variations as well)! Okay, maybe not every plant, but at least the identifiably different species which have at least a common name! Want to keep track on how that's going? You can find the details at our facebook page.
