Argent Stonecutter commented on VWR-303:

Tigro: Additional parameters don't exist in the primitives until Linden Labs creates them and extends LSL and/or the viewer to edit them. *Linden Lab has not done so.* By using the particle system to contain the parameters it would be possible to experiment with custom Linden plants as attributes of prims without waiting for Linden Lab to get off the pot.

>                 Key: VWR-303
>                 URL: http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-303
>             Project: 1. Second Life Viewer - VWR
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Building (in-world)
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: Argent Stonecutter
>            Priority: Major
> Currently, all trees are defined in trees.xml, which looks like this
> <tree name="Pine 1" species_id="0" texture_id="0187babf-6c0d-5891-ebed-4ecab1426683" droop="60.0" twist="5.0" [...] />
> Either of these are pretty small chunks of data, and could easily be attached to a prim and configured with an LSL call similar to LLParticleSystem. Any other shape attributes of the prim so equipped could be ignored (and as an optimization, could simply not be downloaded). The prim would display as the selected plant, phantom, non-physical, moved by wind, etcetera.
> Since these are prims they could be linked to a build, and would be better than unlinked Linden trees in sold builds.
> Since they would be phantom and simple, they would have as little impact on the sim as a regular tree.
> They would reduce the number of prims in use.
> They would create incredible new building opportunities.
