Commensalism

Post by Clothlen » Tue Sep 20, 2016 9:19 pm

Description: Attempt to survive at least 500 hours.

Substrate: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3heps5e5nkiso ... trate?dl=0

Objective (Difficult?): Keep your cells alive for 300 hours.

Max Cells inserted: 1

Cell Types not allowed: Photocyte, Virocyte, Stereocyte, Senseocyte

Additional Notes: Do not put a ton of Lipocytes that last past that 300 hours by just doing absolutely nothing.

I have completed this challenge. Discussion about substrate and uploading solutions are ok by me. I believe that is all that I need to say.

800h and counting with just 1 mode ;)

Solved with 1 mode too, it looks like this could be a good equilibrium substrate, because my parasyte wouldnt ever be able to kill off the species, and the host actually benefits from the parasyte because if it maxed out it would stop dividing and if unluckyly enough all die at once, this most of the time wont happen, but is a possibilitie that a paradyte prevents

@Clothlen - Yeah, you need to watch out for "classic" unintended solutions. One is a two mode solution: a Photocyte that splits into itself and a cell that doesn't split. It just becomes a very long strand with the first Photocyte at the front, creating more and more cells. Don't worry, I've overlooked this one before. ;)

But Photocytes are not permitted :P However, Glueocytes are ;)

My bad. We usually write what is permitted, and I missed the "not." Wasn't thinking.

Right, Glueocytes. I see now. ;)

A single gleucocyte anywhere in the substrate eventually makes a huge unstoppable chunk of sticky shit

Maybe you should not allow Devourocytes and Lipocytes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7C5xX4ksw8 To show you don't need Lipocytes ;)

Again, you're missing it because you don't have the game. The only thing needed for a solution is Glueocytes.
