Re: 2018 Nobel prize in chemistry

That's pretty smart and amazing how we can do similar things in this game.

And for other cells that are being lifted by the Myocyte :)
Yes. That too.

Shadows for lifted cells

It's sometimes hard to tell if a myocyte is lifted or not so it would be nice if an offset shadow would appear whenever that happens.

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) ...
