Re: Sterilization

Maybe a ring of death, where they just form a connected circle and only divided at the top of dish, make sure the connection is very stronger so no swimmers can run through, and then simply grow the circle and push outward so swimmers eventually run out of living space? Somehow missed this one. Got...

Re: Gene Therapy

The irony here is that you've told me something I knew, yet was the key I was missing. This explains why I feel stupid. Thank you.

P.s. haven't solved it yet, but now I have swimmers of a different color, so I'm on my way

Re: Gene Therapy

Ok. I thought I was following when I saw the children of the final modes, but whenever I try to implement any ideas I cease to have swimmers... I'm clearly missing a fundamental function of virocytes

Re: Gene Therapy

This one is going over my head. How do I change the color of a cell type I don't have with a virus? I know I've done it with a gamete, but those aren't available here... Or am I missing the point entirely on this one? I feel like there's some piece of crucial info I'm missing that will make this cha...

Re: Infection II

Ok, here I started by selecting one if the white eggs on the dish and loading them from the microscope. Now that we have our little creature, I change the egg (M4) to a virocyte, copying from M1. I changed the color of M2 to make it easier to tell who's infected. This is important since luck plays a...

Re: Infection

Ok, not as clean as other solutions I've done, but I set M1 to gluocyte with a low split massand high nutrient priority, making adhesin. It splitter into two M2s. M2 is set to virocyte and copies from M1.

Re: An idea laying around my head

So, I'm thinking a solution about making a cell that grows and covers the entire top petri dish, suspended by Buoyocytes. Here's the trick: The Buoyocytes dies of old age, and the "blanket" drops, possibly ending the swimmers' whole career. The photocytes are kept from aging using something that in...

Re: Sterilization

Not sure how to do this one. Was trying to make a light monster at the top that will fall on the other guys. Problem is I can't get it to grow fast enough before it falls. I tried adding a bouyocyte to slow the fall, but I still have nothing. Anyone got ideas here?

Re: Balloons

Ok, I'm trying desperately to understand this. I've created a basic cell group with a bouyocyte on top of a neurocyte, with a phagocyte on bottom splitting. I keep trying to play with the settings in the bouyocyte but it either stays still, raises, or sinks only. I can't seem to get the S1 signal to...

Re: Harsh Conditions

Set M1 to photocyte. Set both children to M2 @ 90 degrees(points up). Set M2 to photocyte. Check "make adhesin". Set child 1 to M3. Set child 2 to M4. Set child 2 to 90 degrees. Set M3 to nitrocyte. Set split mass to max. Set M4 to photocyte. Set child 1 to M1. Uncheck "keep adhesin" for child 1. Se...
