EVERYPlant Ridged Horsetail Tree EXT --24 Models-- 3D model
Name: Ridged Horsetail Tree
Scientific: Calamites carinatus
About this Package: This package contains an extended and extensive series of staged models representing the entire lifecycle of a single plant. It includes staged models for maturity and health. There are a total of 24 models. This same species can also be founded in 12 seperate variations containing a subset of these staging models (and may also contain some additional model variations); look for them in the EVERYPlant store. The exact plant variation in this extended package is unique and cannot be found in any of the other package.
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.

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 suites 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.
