Nasty environment - equilibrium

Post by bwisialo » Thu Mar 31, 2016 11:14 am

On a lark, I put Alast's Devorocyte swimmer from Keep the Balance and put it in my one of my Squares substrates. The result is a pretty nasty equilibrium environment. Things move fast, so the Slow motion setting makes for good viewing.

The equilibrium is pretty good, tough is not common to see equilibrium when the predator is bigger, better adapted to it's envirorment by much than his prey, so... How the thing keeps energy? Did Petter lowered the energy consumption of keratynocytes?

I'm not sure what you mean. It gets energy from the Phagocyte-Devorcyte species. Keratinocytes are the same.

No how it gets, I know the thing eats, what I meant is why the thing worked, but then I saw the substrate settings and I understand now

Don't forget that the predator is entirely dependent on its prey without having the ability to actively hunt it (no Stereocyte). That makes it almost impossible for the predator to take over, because as soon as its food source gets too low the predator starves keeping both species in a dynamic balance.

Haven't yet checked out the substrate though as I'm currently on client site in San Francisco just enjoying a little break ;)

I am European, German to be precise :) But this week in SF on a business trip. And yes, i did get to enjoy a bit. The last few days then were full of work though which ultimately is what I came for ;) Saturday it's going back home.

Now also looked into the substrate. That does look pretty cool :-) And it does balance exactly the way I described above which is always fascinating to watch.

I tweaked my solution for Keep the Balance a bit and got it to live on this substrate for 4300 hrs.

I put my solution to Tip the Balance on there and it killed off both species.
