Re: Amoeba

Nice. There's no good answer, no right answer, but that's a great answer! :D A Stereocyte is not a brain. It is a sensory neuron. A Neurocyte that coordinates multiple sensory inputs into an output is a brain. Intelligent and brainy are different.

Re: The Road

Dang! Impressive progress. :D

Discharge as much mass as possible. High nutrient priority Photocyte, low priority for others.

@Alast - it wasn't difficult at all to get a racer to go around an arc -- a segment of a circle, whatever that is called.

Re: Amoeba

No, you're fine. That explanation helps though. I see what you're doing with the theme.

You could still answer my question though. If I put a gun to your head and said, "what are you going to use for movement on this Cell Lab amoeba? You must choose something," then what do you choose?

Re: The Road

Well, it did seem pretty difficult. :lol:

Funny. I couldn't rwally get a good sense of my settings when I tried switching to step function.

Re: Amoeba

Oh boy, now we're going ten directions with ten frames of reference. That's cool though.

Really? How does that work? I thought swim force 1.0 was the max regardless of a function exceeding it.

Re: The Road

@Megathosto - That's hilarious. This is why we need "win" mechanics for this. :lol: Not really needed for a user challenge sort of thing. Alast started working out some jerry-rigged "win" mechanics. If it were ever in app, I'm sure Petter could work out a clean method. Anyway... Virocytes are now di...

Re: The Road

Yeah, it's as much or more collaboration (and motivation) than competition. You didn't work out the one Steteocyte strategy for a while. And without the mass discharge strategy from you, my times wouldn't have gotten anywhere neat this low. Lots of things like tbese.

Re: The Road

@Alast - A track with left as well as right turns, eliminating the ability to use one line only, would change the mechanics of things in an interesting way.
