3D flora modelled & textured for my C&C Generals: Situation Zero mod project, originally produced back in 2003-2008.
Tree models use Westwood 3D file format (W3D). Textures are provided in TGA/DDS/PSD formats.
This repository provides the mentioned tree models also in 2D format for RA2/YR game series.
I was about to rework all 3D tree models back in 2008 to reduce polygon count and improve overall quality. However, that didn't happen.
The tree model textures have been photographed back in 2006-2008. I modeled 3D shapes for the mod project.

Tools which can't be provided but must be used to produce the provided models in 2D format:
sh files are Unix shell script files used in 3D-to-2D batch production. Consider converting them into .bat format.
3D Modeling: Autodesk 3DS Max <= 9
3DS to voxel converter: 3ds2vxl
Image editor such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop (TGA/PSD/DDS image formats)
1 cell equals to 60x60 pixels
rendering canvas size in Autodesk 3DS Max: 544x308 pixels
shadows are rendered separately
shadows are rendered in opaque mode, transparency is handled by the RA2/YR game engine
Tree root is vertically centered in rendered image (see 'center_weight.png' in sz_trees_for_redalert2 subfolder)
Use correct palette format for RA2/YR
tree 0000.pcx (normal tree)
tree 0001.pcx (damaged tree)
tree 0002.pcx (normal tree shadow)
tree 0003.pcx (damaged tree shadow)
Related command samples:
buildings = shp
tanks = vxl/shp
infantry = shp
aircraft = vxl
shp = shape, vxl = voxel
File name suffix explanations:
_B = Burn/Burned model
_D = Damaged model
_S = Snow model
_BS = Burn/Burned Snow model
_L = Large model (for example, PTgrass and PTGrass_L)
_LS = Large Snow model
