Re: Easy Evolution

It is possible to meet most objectives with only these settings adjusted: Radiation amount Cell type(s) But you may find it helpful to tweak other settings to guide their evolution. These are the original settings, in case you need them: Substrate size: 0.7mm Maximum cells: 1000 Kill cells at edge: ...

Easy Evolution

This substrate has been designed to make it very easy to evolve a variety of organisms from scratch. Some of its key characteristics: Gravity with density gradient, so most cells settle in the middle High nutrient concentration; even plain phagocytes can survive Fairly high salinity, so organisms li...

Re: Digestion III

There are some really good tips for solving Digestion 3 in this comment on the beta testing forum: http://forum.cell-lab.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&p=27923#p27693 I had the best success with organisms having 2 phagocytes to catch more digested food with less circling. Food bits are so large, it is almos...

Re: Can we have an app to provide easier forum browsing?

I browse and post to the forums all the time on my phone, and it works fine. Maybe a different browser would improve your experience? I use Chrome on Android and have had no issues.

Re: Extremely annoying challenge.

This challenge can be difficult or easy, depending on your choice of substrate settings. A few of the challenge substrates make it quite easy to evolve successful swimmers from scratch, and I have done it dozens of times on various substrates. The best one that comes to mind is "Tip the Balance", du...

Re: Scarce Conditions

I have been using the "Log substrate statistics to file" option (on the "Settings" tab in the latest version) to measure the effect of evolution on several of my "Scarce Conditions" organisms. Here are some charts (made with Google Sheets) showing the evolutionary progress of three different organis...

Re: Digestion

To live here, an organism must be able to remove the food coating with a lipase-emitting secrocyte, before eating the food with a phagocyte. However, the lipase secrocyte will injure other cells in your organism when it touches them. When it happens, you will see the cell turning a sickly green colo...

Re: Deception

The idea is to steal energy from these swimmers, by deceiving them, making them think your organism is good to eat. The secrocyte can do this by emitting food smell. Your parasite could have a food-smelling secrocyte attached to a gluocyte, both with high nutrient priority. When swimmers stick to it...

Re: Multicellular virus with transformation

Great concept! It took me a while to see what was going on here, but now I see that M5 is the mother cell for the protected virus-spitters, and they are infecting the random contaminant cells. If both viruses bump into a healthy M10 cell, modes M10-M18 are infected, and they become a new swimmer wit...

Re: Harsh Conditions

In this substrate, there is a tiny sliver of light at the top where photocytes can live, but they will need nitrates to reproduce. For that we will also need nitrocytes. It is fairly easy to design a genome to win the challenge, but it is also quite easy to solve this challenge using evolution. All ...
