Halo's The Flood

Post by Lord Zonar » Thu Mar 31, 2016 6:20 pm

I came up with an idea, to use the Virocyte not to replace swimmers with a ghtly better version, but to completely change its structure, so it kills the other swimmers, and after two days of headaches i think i got it down. So i call it the Flood but im sure its more like Xenomorphs, the Infector(the tan and red) causes the Host(blue swimmers) to produce a Flood(grey and purple), rather than directly transforming it. Both the infectors and flood are able to reproduce without the host, making it more independent, and the flood devour the remaining swimmers.

Here is the first successful substrate, you may have to retry it a few times if the original Infector dies. But there is no need to change the substrate settings.

And here is the second larger one, to which the above advice still applies.

Im thinking of making specialized forms of it, like these are regular swimmers,but i could make a form that hunts the swimmers directly, instead of killing at random

Very cool! Not enough folks utilize Virocytes. Their potentials are amazing. Nice work.

I created a challenge / sandbox where you transform one sort of species into another. It's pretty simple, but it's just for playing around with Virocytes. You could check it out: Squares VI - Infection Sandbox

On Infection II / III you can complete the challenge by making the substrate swimmers spit Virocyte-producing Glueocytes -- a sort of double parasite. And you don't even have to use your own swimmers to make it work.
