I made a variation on the challenge. :) I like the two themes of living off dead nutrients and controlled movement. I tried to make smart and dumb solutions somewhat close to one another in difficulty, but that's a tough balance. We'll see what if anything happens. ;) Salinity is now .7. I haven't tested this as much as I usually test my own challenges, but things seem good at first glance.

Types: only Phagocytes, Flagellocytes, and Stereocytes allowed

Inserted: 1 max

Goal: Reach 650 cells total (your cells + initial cells)

Hmm. Might have to change a thing or two, but I'll wait and see. ;)

Actually, I think I'll figure out a change to the light amount. That should work better.

I thought changing the light amount would spread out the resulting nutrients more, but it didn't work out that way. But lowering Viscosity did. :)

Goal: Can you reach 350 cells total (your cells + initial cells)? Or, if you get that, 500? Or, if that's too hard, what do you get? ;)

I've managed 420 with one mode ;) Thought 500 should be possible then, too. But after several different tries the 420 rather seem to have been a lucky accident. Guess for 500 I have to go mobile ;)

:lol: I would think mobile combined with what you have already would work well.
