Yep, even slower is more stable. Was just 0.02 faster than the prey.

Sterile etc... That's what I was referring to ;)

Yeah, I'm not sure how to prevent solutions by sterility and solutions by replication.

I robot swimmer smart prey would probably prevent solution by replication. Being very oddly asymmetrical, it would only be half smart though ;) But perhaps some other, alternate smart prey design would work.

Solution by sterility could probably be prevented on having a min. and max. limit on the predator population.

Your Avoid All substrate would works well as a challenge, though the challenge is more survival than equilibrium, though it's the latter as well.

Very cool re-design on the Stereo-swimmer. I think I'm going to have to steal that one as well. ;)

I'm already ahead of you with Glowbug 3.0 :-P It combines the strengths of the first and the second version to an unbelievably strong smart swimmer maxing out the Scarce Conditions substrate in record time!

(My flight to China was a bit long ;-) )

I will as soon as I can ;-) China blocks Gmail and Dropbox, so it will be hard for me to share files until end of next week.

Thanks :-) I'm sure it will be fine. Am in Shanghai with 2 colleagues on a business trip.

Let's see how version goes. I used an alternative design for the prey. Try it without using sterility. ;) If I could use a counter for "Your cells" to try to address the sterility issue, I might say keep the count between 24-60.

I actually didn't go sterile yet ;) Just wanted to point out the possibility.

I want to test your new substrate but can't download it at the moment...
