Description
Norfolk Island Pine by MrMaison

The Norfolk Island Pine is a forest giant originally from a small Island in the south Pacific (Norfolk Island) between New Zealand and New Caladonia. It is very symetrical more as a young tree than when it becomes an adult. It actually releases edible seeds at maturity. It has been planted around the world as ornamental trees but it grows to great heights in it's natural habitat.
More info here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucaria_heterophylla

This is a 2 piece set containing a mature tall version (Norfolk Island Pine) and a smaller young version (Norfolk Island Pine Young).

STATS:
This is another tri/texture-expensive tree. What I discovered is that if a tree uses leaves that produce more transparency in the texture, the LOD is affected. The more solid area, the stronger the autogenerated LOD for trees so I went with 2048 for these as the smaller sizes produced horrible auto LODs. But just like the rest of my trees I did not experience any performance issues.

Norfolk Island Pine- 3525 tris 2048 texture
Norfolk Island Pine Young- 2253 tris 2048 texture
Normal map for bark included

Get "Tree LOD Fix" by TPB for better LODs in the distance http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1349895184&tscn=1522639011

For those who don't know, I strongly suggest Daylight Classic mod to fight the game's yellow hue. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=530871278

As usual, I strongly suggest Boformer's Random Tree Rotation mod
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=556784825
And his LOD Toggler mod

Also BloodyPenguin's No Radioactive Mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=666425898
And Prop and Tree Anarchy http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=593588108

Sharp Textures mod really makes a difference in how the foliage looks in game http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=793176674

Please Rate if you like it. Thank you and Enjoy!

I actually had one of these trees growing in my basement til It got too big. Gave it to a local business that had a nice big window space for it.

For whatever reason Steam decided to reinstall CSL and now the asset is in place. Problem solved.

It doesn't appear in content manager too

@Creeper. Probably Steam acting up. Try again. And if you know you subscribed to it but don't see it in game, check the content manager assets section to make sure it's activated. Sometimes things get turned off.

Subscribing to this does not trigger a download in Steam and it doesn't appear in game too. Is this a problem of the asset or on my side? Other assets are working properly

Thanks!
This and the London planetree are a big part of my idea of what a city looks like.

@Q Planner- I have fallen trees including a Norfolk version coming soon if you're still interested.

Hey Mr Maison, I'm currently making a map with this tree as my main one. But I want to make some parts forest that has been cut down. Could you make a fallen version of this tree? Would be so awesome!
