Hi all!
I've just solved this challenge using a floater that was hardcoded a certain number of splits before it created a neuron and changed direction.
I had to resort to this because I couldn't get the oscillator to work: it did oscillate, but the maximum period was very short (9.5 h iirc), which left my organisms bouncing on the spot without covering any new ground.
So I'm really wondering what the "intended" solution looks like. How do you make it work? It's my first dive into neurocytes, so I might be missing something obvious, but I think I understood the theory.

Even with the short oscillation period, it is possible to complete the challenge using the three-celled organism. You just have to kind of scatter all five initial cells at the start and get lucky.

(I feel like most of my solutions just involve dumb luck)

Note: Use oscillation, don't fiddle with any of the four below the oscillation settings. The oscillation happens by itself.
