Nitrateless scarcity

Post by CandyYAHFT » Fri Sep 23, 2016 12:24 pm

In this challenge your objectives are to make a species that survives in a substrate similar to that in scarce conditions, but with the added difficulty of no nitrates, for our more experimented genome designers this is, an "easy challenge" :? . The objective I had in mind when making this challenge wasn't to make you get a headache, if not that you get familiar with a range of species "the nitro swimmers" and that they're viable with smart cells

You require unlocked to stereocyte.
Cell types allowed: phagocyte, flagellocyte, myocyte, stereocyte & lipocyte

Max cells inserted: 2

Objective: get 400 cells in this substrate, and keep them alive for 100h without getting under 400

Additional rules:
•Lipodropping not allowed. Meaning, there it can be waste cells from "dead" bodies, but if you throw non functional cells only to get a higher cell count, your solution is invalid.

The substrate is the same, but since some people are having problems with drive, but instead of making a pool like the old me, now i simply put both links ;)
Link fixed

This isn't an easy challenge, indeed it may be difficult even for Alast, who's trickery I stealed to come up with my own solution.

The Drive link opened as text, and Dropbox wouldn't open. "Bare Existence" was like this, but extremely scarce, so Alast should be fine. ;)

I don't know, all i did was to change my scarce condition solution initial cell to nitrocyte and i completed it. It take up to seven hundred hours to reach 400 cell but it maintain and even increase to 500-600. Did i do it wrong?

Did you remove the .substrate suffix of your file? I had to download it with my computer, add the ending and then open it with my phone.

bwisialo, you were right. Went over 2000 cells in 240h and maxed out at 3000 cells in 330h ;)
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

As I said this was meant to be an easy challenge, because there are no in game challenges of smart cells without nitrates.

I'll probably come up with sometjing more original, probably I'll improve one of my old harsh substrates and make it a smart cell challenge

LoooooL
Just found out what happened, I tested the difficulty of this challenge based in my big heads, which now let very clear to me that they're aren't the best of their kind by any chance, but don't worry I learned my lesson, I won't ever got dumb down by the cuteness of a genome ever again

Nitrocytes are not allowed? :?
