An easy way I beat avoidance

Post by Harryjames2045 » Thu May 11, 2017 3:18 pm

For the longest time I wasn't able to beat avoidance I would get so close then at some point a swimmer wouldn't avoid and would cause me to fail. But today I beat it with an organism that had no smart based cells it wasn't even a swimmer
I beat it using a simple one mode glueocyte that's it I only had to modify its nutrient priorities
All I did was attach it to the center organism

I wanted to share this only because I've had huge troubles with this challenge and because what was interesting is eventually the glueocyte tore the sensocyte away from the stemocyte which gave me an idea what if there were a prey that avoided being hunted by removing the sensocyte from the predator. Or a predator that made its prey unable to flee by removing its sensocyte or stereocyte

Wow took me ages to make a swimmer to avoid that.

Avoidance is tough yeah. You want my genone for it? (Mine was the unintended solution)

just tried it again, standard gluecyte with no collor slams avoidance

There's already a thread on these sorts solutions. Hopefully the update will make Glueocytes unavailable in the challenge. It should.

There's a Walkthrough for the challenge and it shows how to make an avoiding swimmer solution.

Wow, the simple gluocyte. Who'd have thought. I used a "trick" solution, but I used a gluocyte that would split into a neurocyte and the egg of a smart swimmer. The neurocyte would be stuck to the stemocyte and provide negative signalling, while the smart swimmer would do its thing and cover the plate.

But I never even tried using one simple gluocyte. Incredible. Yes gluocytes need to be removed from Avoidance :D

I 100% disagree with that.

You can also change the stereocyte to output S3 instead of S1 by using a virocyte. The stereocyte still outputs when cells are near, just on the wrong channel.
