EVERYPlant Ridged Horsetail Tree 09 --12 Models-- 3D model
Name: Ridged Horsetail Tree
Scientific: Calamites carinatus
This Variation: 9 of 12
Habitat: Extinct tree-sized plant from the Carboniferous to the early Permian Period (about 360 to 250 million years ago). It appears to have preferred sandy riverbanks and floodplains. It appeared mainly as part of the sub-story of prehistoric forests.
Range: Fossils have been found virtually the world over suggesting the plant had a global range.
Notes: An extinct, tree-sized plants that lived during the Carboniferous and early Permian periods (about 360 to 250 million years ago) to which the modern horsetails (genus Equisetum) are closely related. Unlike their herbaceous modern counterparts, these plants were medium-sized trees which grew to heights of more than 10 meters. Although it's stem was woody, it was nonetheless a delicate plant that grew in the sub-story of prehistoric forests. Several sub-genera of Calamites existed, this species fell into the category Diplocalamites and were distinct from other Calamites in that their terrestrial parts branched sparingly from its central stem, and the branches then further branched which was unusual for Calamites. These plants grew from an underground connected network of rhizomes as well as from seeds.

- Immature -- 10,404 polygons -- 1.16m tall. Plant has not yet reached its mature aspect.
- Seedling -- 6,738 polygons -- 63.15cm tall. Very young plant just emerging from underground rhizomes.
- Simplified -- 166,291 polygons -- 7.48m tall. Same as the Standard model but finer details have been omitted. Slightly lower poly count. 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.
