Genres worms - "sexual reproduction"

Post your creations here. It can be either a cool genome or an interesting ecosystem. Indicate if you designed it yourself or if it was created through evolution, or both :). File, picture, or video is required.

yeah thank God I still have the message since I restarted to fabric for the beta test

I checked and of course I still have that genome. It indeed has proven very effective :)

Btw, a genome you sended to me, "max out swimmer.genome" is the real deal, that think is imposibble to improve, however I've managed to make a swimmer that is better, but with evolution, and still needs testing, what now I want to know is what kinda species are better for low salinity envirorments, but your max out swimmer you send me in a private message gets a quite good balance of 200-400 cells, which is quite irregular, I found the less the salinity the wider the range, at highest salinity however, deppends on many factors, so the things aren't so clear

Few things are impossible to improve ;) , unless the limiting conditions are very specific.

What is "better" depends on what the goal is, the specifics of a substrate, etc.. In what sense is your swimmer better?

I'm not entirely clear on the range of effects that Salinity has. What might do well at low Salinity would depend on other substrate settings: light or not, nutrients or not, etc. I'm not sure any type of cell is affected less than other cells by low salinity. Perhaps Lipocytes, and perhaps they help attached cells. But then again, for example, Lipos don't do better or help retain nitrates when there aren't any. Making Nutrient priority settings high across all cells in an organism may help them have more stability when Salinity is low. And I don't know if, for example, rapid vs slow reproduction / cell splits makes a difference. In sum, I don't know. ;)

Also you can't really compare this anymore as that swimmer was before the update. Obviously now we can do totally new things and the Lipocyte has become THE game changer when it comes to max cell count goals.

@Alast - Do you mean that using Lipos in a Nitro-swimmer species could be a way of optimizing it?

Possibly in any swimmer. I just made one in a few minutes that maxed out at 1000 on a standard substrate using Liposeeds

Dumping them on the substrate to get a high cell count? Or using them to keep swimmers alive longer?

Neither. I do the same thing as for the Glowbug and make the swimmer care for its Liposeed by keeping it attached until it's ready to split into a new swimmer detaching from its parent with the split.

That's awesome. I should go back and utilize them for a wider variety of things. Yeah, I shouldn't have said "make them live longer." What I really meant was if they had a function in the life cycle. Nice work.
