===== Distribution Curves ===== | ===== Distribution Curves ===== | ||

For some properties, instead of a parent curve, there may be an orange "distribution" curve. Like parent curves, distribution curves govern a group of nodes all at once. Distribution curves differ in that they control the spread of a fixed number of nodes. | For some properties, instead of a parent curve, there may be an orange "distribution" curve.

- | If you look at the example on the right, you can see the affect of a distribution curve. The curve on the bottom has been set so that the fewest level 1 branches will occur around the middle of the tree, packing most of them near the base and tip of the trunk instead of evenly, as is the case with the top curve. | + | If you look at the example, you can see the affect of a distribution curve.

There is exactly one pruning curve per generator. The pruning curve will remove nodes wholesale based on their positions throughout the tree. | There is exactly one pruning curve per generator. The pruning curve will remove nodes wholesale based on their positions throughout the tree. | ||
