Swimmer from "Predator" challenge beats "Scare Conditions II"

Here we remember old challenge discussions that got purged in the great forum cleanup of 2018.

Swimmer from "Predator" challenge beats "Scare Conditions II"

Post by fungus3 » Sat Sep 09, 2017 6:41 pm

The prey organisms from "Challenge 41: Predator" can complete "Challenge 39: Scarce Conditions II" without any modification.

Of course, to get the swimmers, I has to replace where their phagocytes would be by with photocytes so the organism can be easily recalibrated with the phagocytes when I extract them to an experimental plate.

I only modified cell types to get the organism back into working shape, and they can complete Scarce II as long as RNG is on their side.

They do reach 300 or so cells in Scarce III but aren't actually able to reach a 600 cell population.

You gave up a perfect chance to make a satiric "media report" styled topic just now
-First experiment of the Aspiring Apprentice-
Once a single split,
Now a grand gift,
Thanks to evolution,
A complete revolution.

The substrate being well lit,
The cells no longer fit,
One last tragic split:
"I quit!"

Good find. That is actually where that prey comes from :) It was bwisialo's approach to the Scarce II challenge and then became the prey organism for the later added Predator challenge.
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

And if you make the initial phagocyte a lipocyte, and lower the split mass a bit...

...it can even complete Scarce III!
