Deception

Difficulty: Superhuman AI

Progress: Unlocks gene Stemocyte and further challenges

Description: Again we have access to the Secrocyte. This cell can secrete different molecules to its surrounding.
Can you make a parasitic organism live off of these harvesting organisms?


Win Conditions: 50 or more user cells with less than 150 but more than 0 substrate cells with 1 inserted

Hint: The Glueocyte is useful here. Giving your organism some mobility might be helpful


Record Solution: ?

The idea is to steal energy from these swimmers, by deceiving them, making them think your organism is good to eat. The secrocyte can do this by emitting food smell.

Your parasite could have a food-smelling secrocyte attached to a gluocyte, both with high nutrient priority. When swimmers stick to it, your cells will draw energy from them. Use that energy for reproduction.

Once you get that working, think about how to spread your parasites around the substrate more effectively.

Wait... they emit food smell or empower food smell?
Holy cap now the challenge is so easy!!!

Thanks!!

I made a blob of glueocytes and secrocytes and things went great for a while but then it started dying and the cells didn't even shrink, just died at random.

Cells die after 240h if they don't split.

A simple solution for this is a basic swimmer that evolves into a Flagellocyte-Secrocyte-Glueocyte organism (the Secrocyte with food smell and the Flagellocyte with low enough swim force to make the smart swimmers catch up) (All the cells with high/max nutrient priority)
It helped me

Glueocytes are overrated. I use Devorocytes. Why just drain their lifeforce when you can simply consume their entire body?

Well, designs would require Keratinocytes if one were to use Devourocyte unlike Gluocytes which could still function without being dependent on Keratinocytes.

I have a couple of my own designs that don't require Keratinocytes with the use of Gluocytes and still works like a charm. It is quite pecular and interesting for you to choose Devourocyte as your means of food-eating module. I'll take a look into it on having Devourocyte/s on the solution.
