Re: Adaptation

This one made me laugh to be honest. You literally just have to load the cell from the microscope, make sure m1 is initial, and just put them in line of the swimming ones. Boom, easy.

Re: Friction II

I only used the essentials to build my solution (Nitrocyte for Nitrate Production to enable continous splitting, Phagocyte for cell nutrition, Myocyte for locomotion and Neurocyte for Signal Fluctuations). Its population can sit at round 500-550 cells. The cell count goes up to 600+ cells if the sp...

Re: Friction II

I wanted to post something about this challenge since I'm not sure if I beat it the intended way. It seems like the idea is to simply optimize the guy from the first friction till it's able to hit 600. However, there is a much easier way to get around this. If you just make something that can surviv...

Mode Mutation Setting

I notice when I am trying to evolve new creatures, it can take a long long time. Even the simplest of organisms can prove tough to create from scratch. The reason I see it is because when you allow all mutations, even with a limited number of cell types in the bank, there's still a ton of modes. I'v...

Re: Cannibal

I tried a simple phagocyte/devorocyte cycle that couldn't make it, but with two phagocyte cycles and one devorocyte, plus some split pattern optimization, it works quite nicely: M1 phagocyte to M2 + M2 M2 phagocyte to M3 + M3 M3 devorocyte to M1 + M1 Substrate starting with 1 cell: https://www.drop...

Re: Cannibal

I managed to do it under 30h with only Phagocytes. Took 11 modes, though That's funny, I just came here to post my next solution, a 10-mode phagocyte-only version :-) It took a lot of tuning and still doesn't hit the 450-cell goal every time, but it looks pretty: phago-rainbow-450.png Substrate: ht...

Re: Cannibal

AMAZING!!!! THIS SUBSTRATE USED TO CONTAIN RICH ECOSYSTEM AND NOW ITS DYING! Scientists expects the ecosystem to fully extinct under 100 h Ok just kidding sorry for the scam-clickbait title Here is the plate https://www.dropbox.com/s/qjybjb35d9i20dc/lol.substrate?dl=0 The problem with the challenge...

Guess I'll just insert 450 Photocytes since the default substrate has no light :P
Hah! You got me. I made an edit so only one inserted cell is allowed, any ideas?

Cannibal

Easy enough one for you guys here. Undergad in my opinion No need for a substrate, literally just click new plate in the experiment tab and you've got it right. All cell types allowed, and this can be solved with very early game cell types, it will just require a lot of optimization that way. Time l...

Re: Coexistence

This one is easy to overcomplicate. All you gotta do is optimise for the most cells. By this I mean A) give the photocytes a lower split mass and B) give the phagocytes an efficient split angle (90°) and you should be good.
