I think you over Keratynocyte-it, :lol:
A lot of Keratynocytes seemed to be necessary in my closest approaching, for some reason.
I remember I infected the photocytes, but now I forgot how

Actually they serve a purpose. They help keeping the head of the lurker alive over longer periods if no Photocytes come by to feed it. The reproduction rate of the lurkers needs to be very low to not overpopulate the substrate. But then they also need to stay alive long enough to actually get to reproduce. That balance I find very hard to get right.

Also the Keratinocytes serve a second purpose. A chain of them can help the lurkers move passively across the substrate by being pushed around by the Devoroswimmers. Plus I think it looks kind of cool :D

They are graceful comets, which found the balance of life, isn't too surprising you got the most followed and more replied challenge

Bugs me a bit that it died out :)

Beautiful things aren't endless, that's why I'm immortal :evil:

New goal is 40,000h :mrgreen:

For some reason I just can't let go of this one.

The glitches genomes by excellence made endless balance
(Mr. Booh's which contains nitrocytes, and mine that's only phagocytes and Keratynocytes)
They generate a fair equilibrium between the 3 species, however, I know it doesn't have any merit to win through glitched genomes, but I wanted to comment you the results

Ah, so it's certain that it was glitchy? First you didn't sound sure. That's too bad. I'm doing my best not to let the energy bug happen to the point where I discard anything that looks suspicious. So I'm pretty sure that my genome is fine :)

Haven't beaten 25k h yet. But I still have a few tweak ideas up my sleeves in order to reach 40k.

see, I finally understanded why the bug happens.
low nutrient priority keratynocytes give more mass than the mass that was needed to create them, but know, the genome I was mentioning it wasn't a glitch, but now i can make it again, I forgot the most important part, what were the settings of the ball of 4 gleucocytes, it had 3 modes of gleucocytes, but know i don't remember how nutrient priority needed to be for this thing to work, can't make it again
:( , I'll try different aproachings, i'll try it without looking inside your genome, if I finally make something for this, I want it to be totally original, or at least based in my own genomes
PEACE & LOVE,
