What part has you stumped? Do you have a partial solution that needs fine tuning, or are you blocked on a more basic problem like reproduction? I assume you figured out that you need a swimmer that can avoid the purple cells while seeking food. One thing that helped me was to make my swimmer really slow so it didn't run into the purple cells accidentally.

i used a unintended solution for the first one cuz all my base genomes couldn't cut it so i need a basic understanding of it. Also a way to optimize it for II would help.

I did not have any luck trying to adapt my Avoidance 1 solution for Avoidance 2, mainly because in 2 you need to adjust for lack of nitrates. Your genome will need to include at least one nitrocyte.

For me the hard part of both challenges is getting the "avoid" signal to be much stronger than the "seek food" signal. If you're using two stereocytes, simply having a higher output value for the avoidance signal might not be enough; the cells reacting to that signal (myos or flagellos) should be directly connected to the stereocyte for maximum effect. If the signal has to travel through more than one adhesin connection, it will be a lot weaker. You can also use a neurocyte to boost the avoidance signal further (though I didn't need to for this challenge).

Could you send me your solution so i could examine how you did it cuz prioritized signal substance were never my forte.
