59 (Move it) I need tips

Post by Paulo_Fera. » Fri Aug 24, 2018 5:23 pm

Two days ago I'm updating my Flatulent Species (he seems to be farting :D ) but he does not get 1000 Hs in 50 cells, Can you help me with that?

Sure~! But could you send the substrate first?

If you want people to help you then you really should provide more information than "it's not working" ;-)

In my opinion,
- It needs to have the ability to keep farting while it is hatching the egg. Otherwise, the egg and mother may not be able to get enough nutrients to survive.
- Also, 4×1 structure may be too unstable to let the Stereocyte to control it properly for this substrate. 3×3,4×3... are more stable so that it will not "fly away" from food chunks easily.

You might want to try finding a mechanism that can do without the Myocyte. It's not precise enough here.

It looks like Cell Types are crucial here. I have a certain design with a couple of varieties, which is the differences of the cell types of the propulsion engine. Out of three of them, one worked remarkably.

Also, what worked extremely well for me is to not detach offspring. However, my design is also different to yours.

I was thinking that maybe your solution's layout is like the Shiva's, taking advantage of viscousity for movement.

Not really, it's derived from a one celled smart farter that I just kept together with it's offspring forming long worms that sometimes break and that way create new worms.
