What cell count do you get if you make the max, eg, 3000 and leave all the other settings at default? Just curious.

The one i've quickly put together barely made it to 1k and not every time so i don't expect much more. I'd have to optimize the design to really make ot go farther.

For higher max counts just dumping Lipos is more effective though.
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

That's cheating. ;) Seriously, though, if you (not you personally) use LIpos that way you've only made a species that gets a high cell count, not one that makes optimal use of energy in order to reproduce. So, yeah, I'm interested in cases where Lipos have a function in the life cycle.

Using your model, I have a Nitro swimmer that can reach 950. I can tweak it to hit 1000, but there are Nitrocytes laying around.

I meant that's better in the sense of being good at different conditions, and highest peaks in general, but over different conditions, for the default your wins, high salinity yours wins, but low salinity mine wins, and yet I'm testing more combinations, with also changing viscosity.

This, because I was thinking there it could be a challenge in which with only one genome you have to solve the objectives of 2 or more different substrate conditions, or even, if you think it sounds interesting, beating 2 different species, but one first then the other, with only one genome.
So I was thinking that first there it should be a genome good enough to nail it in 2 or more very different conditions, but the testings are very subjective, so I have to do more before reaching conclusions

But of course there's a hole you might already guessed, I can tell you via PM if you want, I won't post it here because it could be a big spoiler if this kind of challenge is ever done

If you acknowledge that each substrate has a different species that does better, I'm not sure what it means for one species to be better in general. There is no "general" substrate to use to test species against one another. The same would apply to a two substrate challenge: if you have substrates A and B, one species does better; but if you have substrates C and D, another species does better. Etc.

Yeah, send a PM explaining what you're refering to.
