Yea, I think he meant it as in 'the real McCoy'.

There are blue-green algae, but thats more of a pigment and its still green. There are green algae, brown algae, and red algae, so I don't think it neccesarily matters whether any particlar one wins out in the end. Unless you mean the evolution of land plants.

Edit: I don't get what this poll is suppoused to determine, what becomes the land plants?

Edit2: In going with what UFO King said, Cyan, which is blue, can't be a viable option. So you should change that, maybe to green?

Hey, artistic license.... and there is no need to have an attitude about it

Regarding plant colors, there was a discover magazine article about it a couple issues ago, or was that scientific american? Anyways pink/magenta could be possible, not sure how though.

Quote from: Wikipedia
No photosynthetic plants would be blue-colored, because blue light provides some of the highest photosynthetic yields in the light spectrum (therefore it is important for blue light to be absorbed rather than reflected).
AHEM!

I don't care.   This is MY game, and I'll run it however I please.  Anyway, if I wanted blue, I would have put it.  Instead, it's cyan, which, if you know current color theory, is in fact a very different color:



Yea, I think he meant it as in 'the real McCoy'.

There are blue-green algae, but that's more of a pigment and its still green. There are green algae, brown algae, and red algae, so I don't think it necessarily matters whether any particular one wins out in the end. Unless you mean the evolution of land plants.

Edit: I don't get what this poll is supposed to determine, what becomes the land plants?

Edit2: In going with what UFO King said, Cyan, which is blue, can't be a viable option. So you should change that, maybe to green?

See above.  Anyway, this is what will become the plant colors, but I had no way of doing it until now.

looks like it's gonna be yellow,
@pie, pink is a completely legitimate colour, Sagan 4 has purple, which is practically dark pink

Yellow is also a perfectly legitimate color, simply look at leaves in the fall.

If a tie does happen, maybe we can choose something in between? Since light pink isn't all that different a color from magenta, we could use that as a starting point if that comes out as a tie. Or maybe use red as the starting point for light pink. So, if a tie does happen between yellow and those two, maybe we can do red orange or yellow orange? If cyan somehow surges forward and a tie happens there, then we could end up with the standard terran green.

Honestly though, I think that color wheel is actually a really good idea since we can easily make a compromise if neccesary.

Basically, it's just saying what color will survive to give rise to all future plants.
