    This would normally go into the tracks folder, wearing a nice and shiny blue "Tool" prefix. However, the number of polys is way too high to be able to use this in a game anytime soon.. IF ever. (Challenge accepted ? :D #technologyprogress).

    ..but, it is just too cool not to be shared nevertheless. The end result will look something like this (which counts in hundreds of thousands vertices). I will make some tests though, and see what we can obtain cutting 3 zeros from that number. If anything decent comes out, we'll move this to it's proper place: Track making :rolleyes:.

    INSTALL:
    - download the zip file.
    - unpack somewhere (e.g. desktop)
    - open Blender, go to Prefereces > Addon
    - install from file
    - done.

    PS: don't forget to activate it, and save user preferences

    Link towards the source.

    This is as close as I could get for the moment. 6k tris / 3k verts.
    Which might be quite ok for some close-to-track trees. Not that bad :).

    Will need to find a way to make the trunk less detailed. Now it's starting as an octogon.

    this is fantastic. not even for models. but for 2d tree variation it must work.
