today i have finished my 2nd mass family tree population UuU.
i did one last year based on my nymphs, and i was very proud. this one is more based on normal populations, BUT it includes death dates this time!!! this way i can know would be still and alive and part of the population. thats a very big improvement for “realism”
of course its not very real… i didnt have anyone under the age of 28 die even though i had most people not living to their 60s. (its too sadd)
im not going to post pictures this time but ill share a link where you can go look at all the “records” so to speak (go to sheet 3 and scroll right) the family tree itself is on family echo docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
theres a red line in the middle with the year number, and on the left is the mothers for that year, and the right is the people born that year. it goes from 1800 to 2015 and is set up and waiting for 2016….
i wish i could start at year 0000 and go to present day, but i think 200 ears is my limit for attention span, and it still takes months and months to do. i would really really like to have a program that i could plug things into and it would make one of these for me. like there are some very nonrealistic things i put in place for myself to keep things neat, like there is a set # of babies that can be born in a year and if i hit that number before going through all the potential mothers for that year then thats it. (if that happens 3 times in a row i add ONE more slot)
another is i have a minimum of 3 years inbetween siblings. id like it to be 2 years, but that would just make the population grow too fast, and i have it so that any eligible woman has a 1/7 chance of being a mother for that year, idk if that is accurate, and id like for siblings to be more regularly spaced…. sometimes ill have 2 that are 3 years apart and then the next is like 12….
if you wanna know what any of the other stuff in the sheet means feel free to ask
