The viscosity is extremely low: all movements need to be well controlled. For programming the Flagellocytes, use small values for a; for b, untick Snap values and use something like .12.

Viscosity was extremely low in the past, but remember I've updated the substrate and Petter incorporated that new version which works much better. You're right though that it still is a bit on the low side.

The intended solution is indeed an organism that turns towards food and away from green. In order to have the avoiding signal having a bigger impact than the food seeking can be to have the avoiding Stereocyte at the front of the organism and/or have it directly attached to the Flagellocytes while the food seeking Stereocyte is not.

Another strategy that bwisialo has successfully used is a stop mechanism making the organism stay in place when getting too close to the green cells so they would never be able to reach them.

I've recently even created an organism using both strategies combined to solve this challenge. It might become a video ;)
