Im looking for the best method to have plants/vines grow up, around and eventually cover a composited building..
Any one know of any plug-ins or tuts that can help with this?
not too keen on using vue as i dont have anything that can cope with 30 billion+ polys!
cheers for all help and advice

There's some "plant grower" plugins out there... Google Fertilizer for Lightwave. I'm not sure if this will do the trick though. Search around the forum for "growing vines".
