uhhhhh ok so i know i dont post here much but in biology class i always loved the genetics section and of that, really looked forward to doing the punnett squares. only problem is we always did the same punnett squares, you know?
flowers and peas are ok if your some kind of pansy but anything with humans was the stuff i lived for. problem is most of it is just super simplified that it turns out not to be incredibly accurate.... like this is the set up for eye color usually
problem is there are more eye colors than brown/green/blue and not all browns/greens/blues look the same, and indeed eye color is more complicated than this and two blue eyed parents can have a brown eyed child even though brown is dominant in this model
its become a bit of a long term goal for me to make at least semi-realistic punnett square set ups that encompuse all the range of humanity, but is still simple enough to actually use
ive made a pretty good one for hair color, i think. though i dont think its as acruate as it could be.
i have AaBb Rr -where the r’s control redness and the others are for general lightness/darkness of hair.
so AaBb rr would be an ashen brown, AaBb Rr would be more of a regular brown, and AaBb RR would be much more auburn/red
i have ones for skin/eye color and hair texture, even height and maybe weight too, but thats more subjective anyway. hair color is the only one im not going back and forth on right now
this is relevant to me because i have it as a bit of a hobby to do family trees for fun. when i was in high/middle school i started multiple notebooks multiple times where i tried to start a family tree with as many generations as i could until i lost interest because id give each couple like 10 kids, and have a page with the punnett squares hashed out for each individual immediate family, and eventually id be left with a headache and a bunch of notebook paper with tiny little writings i couldnt even make out anymore on my bed and no more enthusiasm.
i still make family trees for fun, just mostly on the population level now where i chart and name every person born in a particular year, every year, from 1800 to the current year, with the help of various internet websites, and i am very proud of them u-u. but the point is i cant use my punnett squares on them because id loose interest very fast,
i need more innovation, more websites, more programs,
i could write up every facet id want for a starting population simulator program but i could not make it because i dont know any coding and have no job + money
moral of the story is if you make me video games from scratch i will draw u a picture of whatever you want,,,,,, !!! especially if its a fat neanderthal
