Bare Existence

Post by bwisialo » Sun Apr 10, 2016 2:36 am

Description: Like Scarce Conditions, but much less food and no nitrates. Creating a species that can survive at all is half the battle. Of course, you can change the substrate to add nitrates and see how things go.

Updated: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oidchu1jmiyfb ... trate?dl=0

Objective (very difficult): Create a species that reaches 175 cells

Max Cells inserted: 1

Cell Type allowed: all

100 cells is my best, the thing is a real challenge

100 is good on this substrate! Because, yeah, it's not a friendly environment.

Now 300 without Lipodrops and 380 with ;-)

Interesting fact, the difference between those 2 results is only 1 setting.

Taking it yet a bit further I made it to 440 with some more changes on top.

I'm eager to see what the "glowbug" actually is, could you send it to me?
Btw, now that I figured out how to use lipodropper I solved it with a variation of my wasteland swimmers(the liposwimmers that look like shit)

I should have tried harder to get the simpler species to work. Oops, my bad. ;)

I didn't need to try harder -- I simply needed to think of the obvious. ;) Major oversight. With that, I made some changes to my two Flagellocyte Stereo-swimmer and likewise reached just above 300 without exploit. Perhaps I'll update with a more barren substrate.

Edit: 320
