Infection IV

Post by TragmatiS » Thu Jan 19, 2017 1:29 pm

Hello everyone! This is my first challenge.

Infection IV

Substrate link:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByJZL0 ... p=drivesdk

Description:
We have challenges about smart species. We have challenges about infection. Why not combine them?

Substrate preview
Objective (very difficult): lower cell count to 75
Second objective (insanely difficult): clean the plate

Max cells inserted: 3

Cell types NOT allowed: Devorocyte, Glueocyte, Stemocyte

Cleaned the plate. :) Not the way I expected to, though. The virus swimmer has less than a 100% chance of reproducing a full adult once. It spreads Virocytes more by direct contact infection. Then it dies down to a population of 5 or so and eventually dies.

There's another challenge of this sort on the board. Smart Virus: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1808

It's s good challenge. ;) You want to disallow Stemocytes: a smart swimmer detectecting food and white can starve the species to death then leave the plate clean by triggering Stemocyte eggs to become Lipocyte eggs only when white us detected. Or, the challenge could hypothetically tequire a certain number of cells to actually be infected.
