Gaia Starter Package
**For use with Unity 5.1.0 and later**
With the release of Procedural Worlds’ Gaia, the preeminent 3rd party terrain generator for Unity, we wanted to make available an upgrade to the SpeedTrees included within. Each of the species available in this package can easily replace the sample trees in Gaia. This selection of four trees and plants in desktop resolution is a fair representation of some of our main foliage categories: broadleaves, conifers, shrubs, and grasses or ground cover. (And although Gaia isn’t available for UE4, we’re making this package available for UE4 users as the ‘UE4 Starter Package‘.)
- White Oak (6 models – Summer, Autumn, Winter, Juvenile Summer, Juvenile Autumn, and Juvenile Winter)
- Scots Pine (3 models – Full, Bare, and Winter)
- Snake Weed (6 models)
- Rough Grass (2 models)
1. White Oak (Quercus alba)
A large oak that often grows to have an irregular, wide spreading crown and a stocky base. White oaks are native to all regions of the eastern US.
2. Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris)
The Scotch or Scots Pine is native to Scotland and can grow up to 25m in height. Scots Pine is used heavily in timber products and is planted commercially for this purpose.
3. Snake Weed (Gutierrezia sarothrae)
This bushy perennial shrub occurs on rocky plains and desert valleys. It exhibits small yellow ray flowers in the fall.
4. Rough Grass (Pao trivialis)
This grass is commonly found in meadows and pastures throughout Britain. Also, this type of grass is perfect for the rough of a golf course.
