An Ode to This Beautiful, Hypnotizing Red Tree in ‘Destiny 2’


It’s even better at 60 frames-per-second.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at


The tree is indeed beautiful Pat. I can’t wait for next Tuesday.


Hey Patrick, you call yourself a Destiny Tree fan, but did you even notice the tree rotated 180 degrees between Destiny 1 and 2?

Or are you a Fake Destiny Tree Fan???


Red Tree, you say?


Destiny had such beautiful environments, often even when they were quite barren, like the dunes of Mars, or run down like the Cosmodrome. And the skyboxes, my god. Not planning on playing Destiny 2 but I will miss walking around, talking in that world.


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as this particular tree.

A tree whose shade may well play host
To Warlock, Hunter, Titan, Ghost.

It’s arms extending out with love
To touch the skybox far above

With bending trunk in crimson dress
at realtime sixty FPS

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only a team of concept and texture artists, 3D modellers, and effects programmers could make this particular tree.


Not sure if I’m being elaborately trolled. I mean, it’s a nice tree, but at what point was Patrick like, “I need to tell the world!”?


patrick just really likes having sons. He adopted that tree and now he’s proud of his arbor son
