That is the fairest of all the dwellings of my people. There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring and the new green opens do they fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey.

Centre of gravity.

If your character is just standing there, regardless as to what their posture is like, the centre of gravity should fall (as the name suggests) through the centre of their body!

On here I’ve shown the centre of gravity as a split between two colours to make it easier to see the mass on both sides.

In the middle there is a lil charmander running, and because he’s in motion there is more mass on one side - the direction he is heading in has more weight pushing him in that direction

and at the bottom, no matter how far forwards your character is leaning, the mass still needs to be equal so they dont fall over!!

It is possible to be in poses where the center of gravity is outside of the body, but as long as the base (whatever feet are currently on the ground and the space between them) is directly below the center of gravity, the pose is stable

I’m not sure what you’re trying to say! The whole thing represents where your weight is in relation to where your supporting appendage is in contact with the ground.

If there is too much weight on one side, you will overbalance and stumble or fall over. What I was trying to convey here was that - unless in motion - the centre of gravity needs to be in the centre or your character will be unbalanced.

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case







(I like glowy things)

this has “fantasy magical forest” written all over it and I love it
