Yeah, that's what I meant. It works more or less, but it seems clear it can be tweeked more to work fairly well.

Hm, maybe I should ban Glueocytes then, too, to make for something really different ;-) I just didn't want to narrow it too much.

Theres a difference between limiting allowed cells that make it too easy and then make it too hard so id keep it to a respectable difficulty for average players in general.

I got at least 30 without gluocytes. The main issue I'm having is my droners (swimmers that make the drones) accidentally pushing the red queen cells into the photocytes, where they can't absorb much (if any) from my drones. Good challenge, thanks for sharing!

Yes Reaper, there is a difference. My intention though is to provide a challenge that is different enough from the first one. And if you can basically just replace Devorocytes from the first challenge with Glueocytes to solve this one it doesn't feel like much of a chalenge, does it?

@wapcaplet Good job! Your problem with pushing the queen might be solved with slower Flagellocytes? Or disabling Stay Alive?

To make it different enough without making it unnecessarily difficult, I think you would want a different substrate.

Not making any progress on the substrate. Tried adding Keratinocytes but that didnt work well. Guess it will stay as it is... Unless inspiration strikes with a good idea :-)
