See my new avatar :D That's the latest version of my Smart Floater. It has maxed out this substrate even though it's a 9-cell organism! I think it's the most complex creature I've created yet.

The genome you sent a is extremely creative and truly awesome! :)

Actually, I played with a smart floater a bit when I made the swimmer-balloons ;) , with a second Stereocyte instead of a Neurocyte. But that's a very different sort of model: it turned left / right rather than directly propelling left / right, and the Buoyocyte was working either with or against the Flagellocytes. It worked but not very well.

I initially had my Buoyoctes respond to my Stereocyte for this challenge but ended up using other ways of getting a bit more up and down movement.

It looks like a Hindu deity :)

Hehe, thanks!

My new Smart Floater (that's actually moving smart in all directions) also has 2 Stereocytes, 1 to control the swim force of the 2 Flagellocytes for left-right movement, and 1 to control the density of the 4 Bouoyocytes for up-down movement.

To me it kind of looks like a dancer. Also because it sort of dances across the substrate. It's so much fun to watch it going after food!

You definitely wouldn't need that many Buoyocytes on a different substrate ;)

I was thinking of something without gravity, possibly extremely low viscosity: four Flagellocytes in the four directions. I haven't tried it yet. Not sure where the egg-hatching cell would fit into the design, but shouldn't pose too much of a problem.

Very true, a different substrate would possibly require a different amount of Buoyocytes and if we set the substrate density neutral then that number would be 0 :P

Have you tried creating a max gravity predator? ;)

I was thinking about it :geek: Haven't had much time lately though.

Solved with 5 cells inserted. I know that it is not right, but solved is solved.
I`m Russian so there may be typos.
