Extremely annoying challenge.

Post by Sci-fo » Sat Nov 04, 2017 11:27 am

This one is simple. Try to get from a "contaminate with random cells (flaggelo and phago) substrate (anything else is yours to change,)_ to a reproducing swimmer than can survive. The faster, the better. So far high score is 4400 hours.

-First experiment of the Aspiring Apprentice-
Once a single split,
Now a grand gift,
Thanks to evolution,
A complete revolution.

The substrate being well lit,
The cells no longer fit,
One last tragic split:
"I quit!"

48.7hrs
Bottom right of plate with green phago and tan flagelo radiation was at about 0.015 during and dropped to 0 when it formed to stop it getting killed.

According to what I saw on the substrate, it does reproduce

good job, im impressed. now let me add on one more element. create one that can survive in a substrate with radioactivity. that should make it take a bit longer. :lol:

Radiation helps if anything as they better themselves.

Now let's turn it up to 11: making a SMART organism through contamination and radiation only. Tools and removers are okay.
