XfrogPlants | Agriculture Library vol.1 | 3.2gb
Agriculturevol.1 contains 3d plant models of the top 10 cash-crop species. Eachspecies of agricultural plant includes 9 variations in age and shape fora total of 90 highly detailed, fully textured 3D models. Populatevirtual terrain with these varied 3d models to create complete,realistic looking farms or rural areas.
Theconcept behind Xfrog is to give the user, powerful building blocks ofNature as modeling tools. Rather than draw, loft, extrude, revolve, theuser procedurally defines organic forms using sliders.
XfrogPlants,are 30 libraries of popular plants, (2000+ plant models), and are builtby botanical experts who gather real leaves and bark and painstakinglymatch photographic references to derive 3-9 variations of each Speciesof plants that they model.
The XfrogPlants are in all popular 3dformats and available as individual models, libraries, and bundles oflibraries in our online shop.
In XfrogPlants | Agriculture Library vol.1 included:
- Avena sativa
These 3D Oats models contain nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Oats are common today as human food as they are as fodder for animals,but in the Ancient and Middle Ages they were only used to feed animals,because they were believed to be a mediocre unworthy food. Oats arereally healthy food, especially because of their cholesterol-loweringproperties. In Scotland Oats are highly esteemed and a part of thenational diet. Oats are grown throughout the temperate zones. They have alower summer heat requirement and greater tolerance of rain than othercereals like wheat, rye or barley.
- Camellia sinensis
This 3D Tea contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:The Tea plant is usually a shrub or small tree. In cultivation, it iskept at an average height of 3 meters and in a spreading shrub posture(subspecies Sinensis). But in the wild, the subspecies Assamica can growup to 20 meters! More than 3000 different types of tea are createdblending the leaves of different varieties of this tree. The Teainfusion was invented in China, but soon became the favorite drink ofJapanese Buddist monks. World tea production is 3.15 million tonsannually. The primary producer is China, followed by India.
- Capsicum annuum
This 3D Chili Pepper contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Although native of dry hot climates, the Chili Pepper plant (in itsmany varieties) can grow well also in temperate regions, as long as itis protected from frost. It can be an ornamental plant but it is mainlycultivated for the fruits, that can be long and narrow, or short androundish, and are a much appreciated hot spice in many kitchen recipes.They also have antiseptic properties. China is, by far, the largestproducer of Chili Peppers, followed by Mexico, Turkey,and United States.
- Coffea arabica
This 3D Coffee contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Coffee is a small tree or shrub native of the Kaffa region ofEthiopia(hence the name). It grows best in the nativeconditions(1300-1500 meters altitude, at average temperature of 20A° C),but it is also cultivated everywhere in warm climates. In cultivation,itis usually trimmed at 2 meters height, to make harvesting easier. Itwas Arabians who made coffee a popular drink worldwide.In North Americaand Europe 1 cup of coffee is drunk every 3 glasses of tap water. About 7million metric tons of coffee are produced annually worldwide.
- Cynara scolymus
This 3D Artichoke contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Artichoke is one of the worlds oldest cultivated vegetables. Thecommon name comes from the Arabic word ardi shauk (groundthorn),whichwas transported into ancient Italian word articiocco and from there intoall western languages. Caterina de Medici introduced the Artichoke toFrance and from there it was spread worldwide. The plant has importantmedical qualities, especially as liver protector. Today, Artichoke iswidely cultivated in other warm areas of the globe such as Californiawhere it is a very large crop.
- Fragaria x ananassa
This 3D Strawberry contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:The Garden Strawberry is the most widely cultivated strawberryworldwide, and must not be confused with the common wild strawberry,Fragaria vesca (Woodland Strawberry), easily found in forests all overthe Northern Hemisphere. The Strawberry, a member of Rosaceae family,was considered a flower of the Paradise and was commonly used in thearts as a symbol of Christ and the Trinity. The harvest period is midApril through May. Virtually the entire strawberry crop ishand-harvested.
- Glycine max.
This 3D Soybean contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:The Soybean (a.k.a. Soya) is a leguminous plant whosecultivationstarted as food crop for animals, but recently becameincreasinglyimportant for human food, to make oil, margarine, flour,milk, andeven as meat substitute. Soybean is the richest naturalvegetablefood, almost complete in nutrients. The United States is theworldsleading soybean producer and exporter. Farm value of U.S.soybeanproduction in 2003/04 was $18.0 billion, the second-highest valueamongU.S.-produced crops, trailing only corn. Soybeans equal about90%of U.S. total oilseed production.
- Gossypium hirsutum
This 3D Cotton contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Cotton is one of the most industrially important plants of the world.The fiber is used in the textile industry, to produce all kind ofclothes. The seeds are used for the oil (food and soap use), and theby-products are used in the animal food industry. The Cotton cultivationneeds little water but requires warm and constantly increasingtemperatures from germination to the final opening of capsules, and istherefore only possible in tropical or subtropical areas. United Statesare the 3rd world producer of Cotton, after China and India, but are theleading exporter, before Uzbekistan and India.
- Hordeum vulgare
This 3D Barley contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes:Barley is the fourth cereal crop in the world. It is largely used ascattle food, but it also has important properties for human health: itremineralizes bones and helps prevention of heart, lungs and stomachdiseases. The Malt (germinated Barley) is the basic ingredient toproduce beer since the ancient Babylon times! It is also a well-knownsymbol of abundance and fertility, especially male.
