tips for me for next time:

take it one (mesh) branch at a time.

With the cards, start small to big.

check x. check z. check x…

make bark mesh live.

you dont need as much branch geo as you think you do. but if it help to put it in to visualize, than do so, and remove later.

if the geo for the mesh branch is “inside” the main besh branch, it doens’t need to be there.

its easier to see.. with different colors that dont make sense

use layers. use locking.

its easier to see… without leaves. where branches are for cards
