All oak species combined feature more than 600 presets in just the HD versions! We are exceptionally happy to present the largest and most detailed collection of the beloved and often-requested English Oak tree (Quercus robur) on the market.

In addition, you will find two new willow species and standalone RT versions of the lichen and moss which are growing on the colonised oak tree species.

Major improvement in file size

We were able to compress all existing PlantCatalog species files. They are now up to 60% smaller than before. All existing archives in the Software Center have been updated with the reduced file size versions. If you would like to save some space on your hard drive, we recommend redownloading all archives and replacing the existing files on your computer.

Bonus item: Pot Factory

Did you know that PlantFactory (which is used to create all PlantCatalog species) can do much more than plants only?

Our vegetation modeller Frederic Bec took a detour and created the fantastic and versatile Pot Factory bonus item that covers all your plant pot needs. Choose from a large collection of presets or create your own custom pot with the available parameters.
