    based on camera forward and other options
    - More gravitate controls, e.g. add curved Ivy when planted in flat surfaces
    - Fix issue where shadow appear for whole mesh while gradually growing
    - Add grow shader variant for the gradual grow sysem for URP and HDRP (currenty is only SRP shader)
    - Add undo and redo functionality, ideally using the normal undo-redo path or a button in editor
    - Finalize interaction between player and Ivy shader, pass player postion - velocity to shader
    - Add more options in control of gradual grow based on UVs of mesh
    - Add scaling of leaves - flowers with factor than edit the prefab itself
    - Add more motion options e.g. waving while gradually growing plants
    - Add sample with distance fade in shader before LOD cutoff for smooth transitions
    - Apply fade to URP-HDRP shaders (currenty is only SRP shader)
    - Added gradual grow optimization, where branches of same stroke are batched together after growth
    - Added Gizmo level control, zero disable icons and plant limit boxes, one shows only icons and two shows both

    Planned features down the line:
    - Procedural Flower generator
    - Ivy gradual burn system
    - More options on placement e.g. create Ivy bridges
    - Add gradual grow of editor Ivy as user passes by

    A note on Ivy Studio shaders use in Deferred mode in URP

    If need to use the Ivy on Deferred Mode, can enter the shader and replace the "LightMode" = "UniversalForward" with "LightMode" = "UniversalForwardOnly". This will allow the grass to appear in both Forward and Deferred modes.
