As the name suggests, this substrate have maximum gravity with minimum density, all cells with fall and even crushed under their on weight. Plate size 1mm

But, this is not really a challenge, rather probably a suggestion. Does buoyocytes need to be buffed?. Their lifting capabilities are hindered by weight/density ratio. The more weight you have, the more buoyocyte you need, the more buoyocyte you have, your organism weighs more.

In a substrate like that, its pratically impossible to make an organism that is able to fight its own weight. Can you make an organism that is able to touch the red glueo in the top? (Or is it really impossible?)

Available cells: all except glueocytes, you can use max cytoskeleton. Initial cells need to be dropped at the lower part of the plate

Buffing buoyocytes have negative effects too, it will make gravity-challenges far more easier. So I dont really know. I rarely use the buoyocytes because of their limitations

I don't really remember, but my ocean challenge had somewhat harsh gravity, if I remember correctly...

Just remembered defy gravity was a user created challenge :lol: . Its the one with huge plate, really scarce food and harsh gravity right?. I tried making an organism there, sure it floats but steering is really bad and i failed.

But the question still remains, is it really possible to make an organism in max grav/min density and does buoyocyte need buffing?. Ive tried all sorts way of movement (max flagelos, min density buoyo, even ciliocytes) and the one that almost works is a simple swimmer with max flagelo/min buoyo that dies just before reaching the top of the plate.

Have you tried a stereocyte attached to some flagelo and some buoyo at the same time? :3

Right, C4pung, I've once created a challenge with the same name :-)
