Nitrograv

Post by Noughtypixy » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:24 pm

Description: this plate with gravity but no nitrates has an organism living at the bottom, can you design an organism that utilizes the light at the top for energy and the organism at the bottom for nitrates.

Substrate: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fj2g4jveka7rg ... trate?dl=0

Updated substrate: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ctgxfxg4feyu6 ... trate?dl=0

Objective (difficulty): easy reach 300 cells, medium reach 400 cells, hard reach 500.

Max Cells inserted: 1

Cell Type NOTallowed: secrocite, nitritocyte, virocyte, devourcite, phageocyte.

Additional Rules:

A Devourocyte could satisfy the problem. With correct placement and split angles, it'll be a stable environement. Tried it but forgot to save it.. (it works)

You're right! If I only need one cell surviving on the substrate then a Devorocyte with a 90/10 split satisfies the challenge.

Noughty, you might want to consider using the Challenge description template provided and be more specific about your goal. Just a recommendation :-)

Looks good :-)

When it comes to the allowed cells I like to list the smaller group of cell types, the allowed one or the not allowed one. So just like you did before your update. Either way is fine, though. Just saying that you didn't need to change that part :-)

Oh, and have you solved the challenge?

Have managed to get an initial 6cell organism to servive and make eggs but not gotten the eggs to reach maturity yet.

Thinking about increasing light range a touch.

Challenge solved by myself (not very elegant but it works) also couple of minor tweeks to substrate (first substrate still linked, just added new one)

Hey guys, the main differences between my vision and the substraight posted is that it is too small, the lit area is too small and you aren't using any density gradient. The organisms at the bottom should be able to swim more freely and not be smushed against the bottom of the plate

You know what? You really don't get to complain! If you want things a certain way then do it yourself! This is Noughty's challenge now and you're not in the place to tell him how he should change it.
