Non-linear creatures?

Post by cellular_automata » Tue Mar 27, 2018 12:44 pm

I really want to beat the Predator challenge because it will make me REALLY satisfied (not looking for solutions) but I'm on my last legs.

Hours and hours of making and optimising a linear predator with almost no success is not fun (makes the end far more satisfying though). The only thing I can think of is making a non-linear predator, like those with double flagellocytes for example. One problem: I don't know how to make a non-linear design (good idea for a tutorial btw) so I'm enlisting help here.

It's probably super simple though.

It's actually not trivial to create such an organism. Experienced players can make one easily because we've done it so many times by now.

Check out the Showcase forum for Predator designs and or Kite/Diamond shape swimmers to get inspired :)
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

I found out how to make the basic non-linear predator and it worked!

However, while I was searching the Showcase forum, I saw some other shapes of creature like 4x4, hexagonal, triangle etc. I have tried to replicate them purely by looking at their designs but no luck. Can anyone tell me how to make one of those (or any different shape)?

Try studying different ways of splitting cells. Note that no cell is limited to splitting when it comes to layouts. Experimentation with different split angles may help you with your quest..

Well, let me flood you with them.

Also still trying to crack preditor, various organisms came close but not quite.
Most vexing as had completed it on previous build.

I got close to it when I used my modified self-avoiding predator..
