Yeah, I got 315, so pretty close together ;)

Candy, the very first Glowbug looked like this:

Since then I developed it further ending in what has kind of become a general template for symmetric 2 Flagello-Stereo-Swimmers:

I updated the substrate, decreasing nutrients, but the goal is the same: 175.

Same solution still makes it well into the 250s ;)

Interesting! Our genomes must be slightly different -- in cell types at some point I'm guessing. My genome gets 220 here but got 360 on the previous substrate, where your was getting 315. No exploits, correct?

I was curious whether exploits could be taken advantage of here, or if you end up being better off using those resources. I haven't tried exploits here, so I'm curious.

es, that's the version that doesn't drop Lipos. Let me check how it does dropping :)

Made it to 290 so far with Lipodrops. Not quite the ones explained via PM but dropping a new Lipocyte that splits into 2.

Only dropping seed Lipos doesn't seem far behind though.

320 with advanced Lipodropping ;)

I wonder if there is a point of minimum resources where the exploit becomes counterproductive.

what's the "exploit" for you?

Dropping Lipos for the pure purpose of increasing the cell count
