Re: Tips, tricks and settings for random evolution

Another observation of the same substrate. I had organisms that anchored themselves (simple gluocyte+photocyte colonies) to stay as close to light but after a while they evolved into a simpler form (the organism became mobile and consisted only of 2 photocytes). However, after reducing light range t...

Re: [Suggestion] Mutations View

I'm not sure I would find such feature useful tbh. If an organism mutates enough and keeps being alive then what's the point of checking how many mutations it has gone through? If you like the creature then just load it into the editor and save for later use.

Re: Tips, tricks and settings for random evolution

An observation I made today: If you run a simulation for a while with all of the cell types enabled (Gene pool) and then disable some of them they will still show up from time to time and I'm pretty sure I know why. So let's say you have the whole gene pool enabled. You let the simulation run for a ...

Re: Tips, tricks and settings for random evolution

This is an interesting topic, might warrant its own page in the wiki. I find it very useful to limit the number of cell types, perhaps some view that as cheating. A swimmer is evolved pretty quickly with just flagellocyte and phagocyte enabled. Every extra mode enabled makes it take a lot longer. I...

Re: Suggestion: water current

That would probably mean they could push against their surroundings and move like flagellocytes. And even if they didn't people would find a way to do that (just like with the gametocyte drive).

Re: conditions to multicellular organisms

Having gravity and density affect food could be pretty interesting.

Tips, tricks and settings for random evolution

Today I got lucky and from random cells and radiation I evolved some simple swimming oeganisms. They didn't last long though. A while back I was also experimenting with mutation of floating plants. I made a simple floater with a photocyte and a buoycyte and just by random chance (and some tweaking) ...

You can send on information through a string of Neurocytes. See the challenge Nervous.
Oooh, I see. I remember completing it some time ago but never got around figuring out how the signal transmission works.

Re: Secrocyte signalling

If we had secrocytes that receive and secrete substances based on signals from other cells we could build very simple central neural systems. Basically make synapses that send signals to other parts of more complicated organisms with senses in the front and muscles and flagellocytes all over the body.

Something about nutrient priority I don't understand

So imagine this: two simple organisms. One is a gluocyte and the other is a photocyte. Gluocyte with very high nutrient priority attaches to the photocyte but instead of growing and killing (by stealing all the nutrients) the photocyte it shrinks. Why is that?
