One thing I would like to point out is the fact that different spectral types provide for different plant colors, because the light that the different types of stars give off if is different colors, therefore the landscape will also be different colored.

Take for example a K0 star. The peak frequency of a star that type would be green, meaning the pigments absorb green colored lights, so the plants would likely be fuschia.

Another problem with smaller stars is tidal locking. Stars in the M class and below would almost certainly be tidal locked due to their proximity to the host star (the habitable zone is so close in) so only half of the planet gets sunlight.

now if we broke lorentz symmetry, i bet we could modify the laws of the universe so that tidal locking wouldn't work. Maybe on large scales, gravity works differently depending on items' rotational orientation, such that the planet would keep orbiting unaffected

Code: [Select]
<Fi8hOwl>but not for our main star since we have one
<Fi8hOwl>i don't want universalis to have a y star
<smjjames>Bit shorter lifespan, but not too short. sentient species evolved in 4.5 billion years on Earth, so it could easily happen around an F type star
<Fi8hOwl>but i want a y star close by
<osmotischen>O star is best
<smjjames>A Y type star is a really faint brown dwarf.
<osmotischen>yes
<osmotischen>glorious
<osmotischen>i mean
<osmotischen>we could even get so close as to be touching the surface of the star
<osmotischen>that would be nice
<Fi8hOwl>why not
<Fi8hOwl>live on the star
<Fi8hOwl>we can be species of flying birds
<Fi8hOwl>the usf map would have to be redone but that's ok
<smjjames>The talk about the brown dwarf thing reminds me of a Sci Fi book I once read about a colony on a planet around a brown dwarf, probably not a Y class though
<smjjames>@ Fiah because gravity.
<matty406>http://i.imgur.com/bopfnPd.png
<osmotischen>wait
<smjjames>Or maybe it was a cool red dwarf, I forget.
<osmotischen>universalis is hollow
<osmotischen>at the core is a small star
<Fi8hOwl>yes
<smjjames>No it isn't
<osmotischen>WE ARE HEATED FROM WITHIN
<osmotischen>BEHOLD
<Fi8hOwl>YES
<Fi8hOwl>what if
<Fi8hOwl>universalis is just the crust
<Fi8hOwl>and if we did below the mantle
<Fi8hOwl>the pressure built up will go supernova
<Fi8hOwl>an ultimate nuke
<Fi8hOwl>or no
<smjjames>If you want to go all 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' fine.
<Fi8hOwl>it just flow out of the hole
<Fi8hOwl>smjjames do you even understand we're joking around
<osmotischen>what
<osmotischen>we're joking?
<osmotischen>i'm not
<smjjames>Mostly, and I;m not sure how serious you are.
<Fi8hOwl>. . . shit

A K0 star should have a surface temperatur of about 5200K, which would give it a peak wavelength of 560 nm, but The Sun has a surface temp of about 5778K, and has a peak wavelength of 502 nm. But the chlorophyll which makes plants' leaves green absorbs little light at that wavelength. So the surface temperature shouldn't force our plants to be fuchsia.



The atmosphere of the planet could distort the peak wavelength of the star to a degree as well.

And definitely voting no to modifying universal laws. And no invisible pink unicorns too please.

yay we have less than 18 hours to decide on the future in years
and people like tuto, swonx, and hellpotatoe, with places on the map, never got to vot either

two days ago is pretty active, but he doesn't have to check every day like us. does it mean just because he has to do something that he can't vote on the future of universalis?

No, yes, idk, what's "one person with tuto" mean, don't get it.
hissy fits don't have to do with anything, it's the outcome. unless you'd like it if one day you were sick and we decided to give universalis 200 moons.

Make some rules on for example 50% of people with a nation on the map having to vote for something for it to be decided or something like that, or a minimum poll time, like 3 or 7 days. And using a Google document like we did previously could make it easier for people to change their votes and keep track on what has been decided.
