Help and Aid

Post by Nayus » Mon Feb 13, 2017 9:17 pm

Brought to you by myself and curated by wapcaplet, here's:
  • Help and Aid

    Description: This substrate has a species that is struggling to survive in the scarce enviroment. Any change or strike of bad luck could make it go extinct. Luckily, a new source of nutrients has come in the form of a high light concentration in the top of the substrate. Can you make an organism to aid the Smart Swimmer and increase its population?

    Substrate: Dropbox

    Substrate Preview:
    Image

    Objective (medium): Increase the cell count of the Blue Smart Swimmer to 150 (not counting your cells)
    Objective (difficult): Increase the cell count of the Blue Smart Swimmer to 250 (not counting your cells)
    Objective (very difficult): Increase the cell count of the Blue Smart Swimmer to 500 (not counting your cells)

    Max Cells inserted: 4

    Cell Types allowed: All

The substrate still has a bit of gravity. I thought we were disabling that? :D

Yeah, we are; but I wanted to leave open the option to use Buoyocytes if someone wants to do something with it. So I put some gravity in it but at the same time I put the Density as close as 0 I could (0.07) For some reason I can't make it 0. It's either 0.07 or -0.099 :roll: . That way the gravity is not noticeable unless you use a buoyocyte (Well, I thought it wasn't noticeable but obviously you proved me wrong)

Does it bother much tough? I mean you gotta be really paying attention to even notice the gravity is on.

At first I thought some of my cells were sinking, which is why I looked at gravity, but I see now that cells are rising slightly (due to positive density), so nevermind. :oops: I can see that having functional buoycytes might open up the possibilities, so let's keep that little bit of gravity after all.

My solution (which I'm still fine-tuning of course) can pass 500 blue swimmer cells, based on total cells minus a rough count of my own cells. It might be 600, not sure. :ugeek:

Cool, your solution satisfies the first and second objectives! :)

Dropbox should support image hosting or something like a link, it's a shame

To post images you have to upload them to a Storage or host Server or some website that lets you upload images and gives you a link. At risk of making a bit of spam, I use this site to do this since it works without much fuzz or time.

Nice looking solution Noughtpixy! Are the blue swimmers feeding on the nutrients left by dead photocytes? Looks quite effective.

Regarding images, I've always just used the "attachments" button here on the forums. Works well on my PC, though not on my phone.

actually it's dead virocites, as they seem to die the quickest. It's a modification of my solution to sterilisation with viros instead of devoro, I pmd you the substrate with it if you want to examine the genome.
