User-Created Challenge: Tip the Balance II v3 & v4

Post by bwisialo » Mon Oct 05, 2015 9:16 pm

This challenge has two species in an endless struggle for life and death. One species is a swimmer that begins from and spits out a Deveorcyte. The second species is a Flagellocyte-Keratinocyte-Phagocyte swimmer.
The substrate is 1.5 mm dish instead of the 1mm default. The maximum number of cells is 1200 instead of the default of 800.
v4 is the same as v3 but has a rim of light at the top, which you can use for a delivery system that floods the substrate with the seed cells of your competing species.

Please don't post links to your solutions, but feel free to post hints as well as general descriptions and images of your solutions.

To attempt these challenges, you need to complete at minimum "12: Decimation" in Cell Lab, which gives you access to Keratinocytes (because they are in one of the species, not because they are necessary for a solution).

Objective (Very Difficult): Can you insert your species and make both of these competing species die?

Cell types allowed: All

Number of Inserted Cells allowed: 30 for v3; 10 for v4
--------------------------------------------

Hints: One of the best strategies: a very strong standard swimmer. It seems to work best when the split mass of the swimmer head is very high. Try your strongest swimmers, put the swimmer head split mass to 3.55, and see how it goes! Another strategy is a more optimized version of the Devorocyte-spitting swimmer, which seems to be the better species to enhance and win.[/size]
Other solutions are always possible :)
