Any pines that work for Daz3 and any cactus?

Just hit ctrl+f and search for pine ...

Just a heads-up that XFrog have changed their free ‘Samples’ section here http://xfrog.com/category/samples.html . There’s now a completely different list of free 3D plants (31 different plants), but the 6 2D plants remain the same as before.

(Each 3D plant (iirc) has three different versions (young, middle, and old) and some have more, which is where the reference to ‘145 completely new plants’comes from.)

I think the list in the OP needs to be updated now…

[Edit: I think that link only works if you’re already logged in. If you’re not logged in go to the XFrog homepage (http://xfrog.com/), click the ‘Shop’ tab (near the top-left of the homepage), and then click the ‘Samples’ tab (right hand side under the main banner image).]

Thank you for this list.  I found things I’d never seen before.

Edit 24th July 2014 - the free samples at XFrog now include all the 3D plants listed in this post, PLUS five more 3D plants, MINUS three of the 2D plants

(Just realised I posted this on April Fools Day. The list of free plants is 100% genuine - I downloaded the OBJ versions yesterday)

(Edit 24th July - the following sizes were correct for the April OBJ downloads. But I think that XFrog have repackaged all the downloads since them)
- The hornbeam OBJ download is nearly 500MB.
- Peace lily, Willow bottlebrush, Totara, White Mallee, Banyan, and Spinach OBJ downloads are each 100-200MB
- Watermelon OBJ download is about 70MB
- All other OBJ downloads are 8-50MB

Here’s the links to the individual free plants from XFrog (one from each of their 31 plant categories):

The 3D plant samples are not showing up as free on my browser.  Do I have to log in in order to see them as “free”?

Ooops - no, they aren’t free now.
When I wrote my message on June 04 they were - but maybe the June 05 was a browser caching issue.
Sorry.

I think X Frog freebies should be in the Limited time freebies thread rather than in a list thread. as they keep changing.

The XFrog free plant samples now INCLUDES all the free 3D plants from April, PLUS five more 3D plants (although I think these 5 were also free at some time in the past?)...

Honeylocust
( Gleditsia triacanthos f. Inermis )
http://xfrog.com/product/AL09.html

Pecan
( Carya illinoensis )
http://xfrog.com/product/BL04.html

Flaming Sword
( Vriesea splendens )
http://xfrog.com/product/FL20.html

Cork Oak
( Quercus suber )
http://xfrog.com/product/ML18.html

White Fir
( Abies concolor )
http://xfrog.com/product/CL01.html

...MINUS three of the 2D plants - golden bamboo, manna gum, and new zealand flax are no longer there)

Chohole - also posted this in the limited time freebie thread. But I recall that the previous (i.e. pre-April 2014) batch of XFrog freebies, although also ‘limited time’, hung around for many months (I think over a year?). I suspect the same will be true of this batch. The ones that Kerya mentioned above in http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/24646/P15/#618012 do seem to have been free for only a month or so.

P.S. I’ve got a short step-by-step for converting the OBJ versions of the XFrog plants into PP2s if anybody’s interested. It’s just plain text at present, and requires a couple of PoserPython scripts I wrote. It’s not necessarilly the best way - just a way I’ve found that works for me. If anybody’s interested just let me know and I’ll email it. If there’s more than a few people I’ll think about douing it as a PDF. (I’ve already checked with XFrog directly just to be absolutely sure, and they’re quite happy for me to do this - apparently they’ve already converted their basic (non-freebie) set to PP2 format, although it’s not mentioned anywhere)
