The Tale... of Darwinum
« on: March 01, 2009, 04:58:42 pm »
Because so many spore based projects are doing well, I'll come into this too.
So, this is such a poll-game, but a spore based one, so you'll guide the creature through all evolutionary stages - with your votes. I present you with:
The Tale... Of Darwinum

We start in the land of the microscopic land, 10000 times smaller than in the naked eye to be exact.
This is on a planet that has green water and blue soil named Darwin III, the third planet of the solar system of darwin. Thy picture of thy picture will be revealed once Darwinum goes elsewhere...
first, should this be accepted or not?

Yeah, alright.

Blue soil is okay, but no blue plants.
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).
The plants would most likely be red, yellow, or green. But I was thinking how it would be cool to have a planet where most animals are sessile and most plants are moving, so I have 4 questions:
1. What are the plants and animals like and is Darwinum a plant or animal?
2. What element is Darwinum based on? (i.e. carbon, silicon, nitrogen-phosphorus)
3. What is the atmosphere composed of? (Earth's is nitrogen-oxygen with traces of carbon dioxide, argon and water vapor.)
4. What causes the sea to be green?

Yeah, about the plant thing, not all plants follow EARTH plant rules.

That's not Earth plant rules. It's universal science applying to photosynthetic plants.

What if they had a blue sun?

Or does the color/intensity of the star have no effect?

1. You'll see how their like once we go a bit thurther... and Darwinum is an animal.
2. how's nitrogen-based? or boron based?
3. how's sulfur-nitrogen atmosphere sound? meaning a yellow sky I'll just have an earth-like atmosphere, with a little more nitrogen than normal at the start. I'll decide if there should be more oxygen later...
4. our own little imagination, I guess?
I'll have two kinds of plants: yellow plants and black plants. Is that alright?

I'm pretty sure nitrogen based isn't possible.

I'm sure this will clear things up.
