Re: Studies of Cell Lab - Volume I

Am I seeing this wrong or in the curves (mainly the Nitrocyte and Secrocyte ones) appears to be some kind of decreasing in the curve in the higher Salinities? That's what I meant about the curves being off. I'm pretty certain it's an artifact of the limited data points I chose. For example the gluo...

Immortal Serpents

I came up with these guys a few days ago. It's a fairly basic symmetrical serpent swimmer that rotates around a central axis of lipocytes. They don't reproduce, but are basically "immortal": immortal-serpents-1mm.substrate immortal-serpents-1.png They have a nice graceful movement; on a small plate,...

Re: Studies of Cell Lab - Volume I

Here's a small contribution to the salinity problem: cell-lifespan.png The Y-axis is life span in hours, and the X-axis is salinity. Click/tap for a larger image if this one is too hard to read. I got the same numbers as you Nayus (or close enough) for 0.0 salinity, and I chose only one cell from ea...

Re: Studies of Cell Lab - Volume I

Wow, awesome analysis! I have often wondered about initial cell mass, and the differences in energy consumption between cell types, and I agree that doing experiments to learn these things is more in the spirit of the game than just asking Petter what's in the source code. I will definitely be readi...

Re: Minimum light for photocytes

I used Google Sheets, but you could do the same with Excel, LibreOffice etc.

Re: Ignite the Spark

It took a few abominations but I got it. The difference is quite obvious once you see it. Lovely!

Minimum light for photocytes

Some comments in this thread about photocytes , and my own experiences with photocytes gone crazy, have got me thinking about ways to prevent photocytes from being such an unlimited free energy source. So I've done some experiments, taken notes, and would like to share my results :-) First, some com...

Re: Queen needs Drones II

I got at least 30 without gluocytes. The main issue I'm having is my droners (swimmers that make the drones) accidentally pushing the red queen cells into the photocytes, where they can't absorb much (if any) from my drones. Good challenge, thanks for sharing!

Re: Cross Breed

They almost use the full genome, lessee: Male: 1-( 2-(6, 7), 3-(5, 18-(19, 9)) ) Female: 10-( 11-(5, 13-(4, 7)), 12-(6, 15-(17-(17, 16), 7)) ) Seed: 20-(1, 10) Male/female share M5, M6, and M7. Only M8 and M14 are unused. For kicks, I briefly tried the "males reproduce more males" strategy. It resul...

Re: Cross Breed

My goal is a sustainable balance, with both species and genders surviving indefinitely (more than 600h at least would be nice, ha!) The "not enough males" problem is the most obvious issue. The male swimmers certainly take in enough nutrients that they could hatch into more males--that would be a si...
