Anchor Swimmer v2

Post by Nayus » Sat May 05, 2018 3:12 am

One of the many things the update will bring us is the oportunity to flesh out previous ideas that weren't quite there or were almost functional but not quite. So expect Remakes of old genomes and ideas soon, but in the meantime I remember this idea that didn't work back then, and it still needs tweaks now..

A smart swimmer with no programmed flagellocytes or myocytes or cell farts.

It stears (poorly) by its unsymmetrical weight that is controled by Stemocytes. It transfers its own mass between cells when needed to change the weight and therefore moving the body.

Here's the Substrate

Fair warning: It still needs tweaking. It's response time is too slow most of the time and needs a few turns before it gets the piece of food.

Nice work, the steering is better than the last one. It works back then but this one better. I tried putting both of them in one plate (nutrient not in lumps) and this one dominates the plate easily. Only a few of the only one survive tho...
