Some of the old plants still work well, but many don't. I had a large selection of palms. nXt does not apply the correct trunk radius, so California Fan palms that used to render with a 3' diameter trunk now render with a 8"+/- trunk. editing the "diameter" with nXts edit tool only makes the tree taller.

This is typical with all of my palms. I've actually moved to using textured mesh obj or 3ds files when it calls for close ups or more detail. That attached image show a Cal Fan Palm that used ro have a trunk nearly the same width as the skirt. 

The leaf mapping is off too. 


Bushes and flowers seem to still render as expected. Haven't tested groundcover, but I assume those are fine too.

Still I did not get real reply to my question.. Please tell me How can I down load all plant files of old versions without having old versions on my computers. Do you know any direct link available ???

I'm doing a search on my PC. I think I still have the old exe's to install (3 seperate if I remember correct). If not at home, I have them at work. I'll look Monday. 

in the meantime..

I don't know what in the zip other than an install exe, but I do know you will need to path the director to the mlib (material library) and plib (plant library) and you will need the textures if the installer does not supply them. I assume it does.

I have accusudio_plib7 on my NXT folder

does it has these old plants

please so me how to install plant library

a plib is from AR3/4 as nXt used individual plant files like materials are. If you have the plib then I assume you have the textures that go with it. I think the mlib has the materials for the plants. I think you should have both.

I have my plant libraries and material folders in one "Materials" folder and have nXt pathed to it (image below). 

Check the little hammer and wrench in the upper right corner of the nXt toolbar. verify the paths are pointing to your folder(s).

Once you check that, you should be able to "add legacy plant" and navigate to your plib.

oh, and I did not have the installers for the plants2 library at home. 90% sure I still have them at work.

Groundcover Issues

Hello,I am hoping to get some clarity on how to modify and add groundcover. I have searched everywhere on the forum and online to find how to save a plant as .ArGroundcover, but I cannot find anything. I am using AccuRender Plant Editor and once I finish editing the plant that I want to use as a groundcover, I click "save plant as", but all it allows me to save as is .ArTree. I have a deadline to get this render finished, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out. See More

"Interesting.  ArStudio has its own WalkAbout-like feture, it's the little camera button.  If you do it while the preview is running you should see the view changes automatically in the rendering."

"I'm having trouble getting the desired view in Studio. I've tried setting the view in nXt walkabout and then using that to set the AutoCAD view. However, when I render from Studio, it gives me something different (see images below)."
