I have a little technical question:

Is T-Gen procedural or l-system based?

Hi, propably closer to procedural. L-Systems weren't very suitable for me in XSI enviroment.

Hi there !
there is new version of T-Gen ( v1.04) available now. You can download it from here (http://simartom.com/index.php?option=com_doqment&Itemid=51)

I have added new "Min branch length" parameter. All branches and leaves with length below this value
will be not computed. This also fixes the bug that causes problems when rendering branches and leaves
with very small length. In some cases animation speed should be greatly improved too.

Supported XSI versions : XSI 5.11, XSI 6.02, XSI 6.02(x64), XSI 6.5, XSI 6.5 (x64), XSI 7.0, XSI 7.0 (x64) ( I have not yet compiled version for XSI 7.0, but 6.5 addon is working fine in XSI 7.0 )

You can also buy T-Gen now for 59.90 EUR ( this limited offer last until end of august !! )

Hi Kaol,

My finger is over the purchase button, but I've got a few questions. :)

What's your policy for upgrades?...free till version 2.0?

Are you planning on adding much additional functionality now that ICE
may offer better access to low-level control? (I'm thinking specifically
about things like creating billboards from branch/leaf groups or other
game-engine-handy possibilities...but perhaps this is XSI 7.01 stuff when
geometry can be created and not just manipulated--dunno how much
opportunity you've had to play with ICE) Do you have other ideas or a
roadmap for future version enhancements related to ICE?

Hi, yes all upgrades free until 2.0, maybe even beyond ;)
Regarding ICE. I yet need to have a deeper look at it, but i think you should
be able to create some cool thinks with T-Gen and ICE now.

I suggest to take a look at free version and decide for yourself.
