I think I generally know what I have to, but man, that seems extremely difficult at first glance. I have one simple solution: change the nutrient settings ;)

Yeah... no, 24 is already tough enough :P I just thought for those of us who enjoy an extra challenge I could see how far I can get while still leaving at least some wiggle room and make that another bonus goal.

But the core idea behind this challenge is educational like your Squares VI. So for the first goal you just need to get the core mechanism right and then with increasing difficulty more detailed work on the same principle is needed.

Well, I did 8. So I think I have the mechanism. ;)

I have added that Phagocytes are not allowed. Just to be clear on it, not that it really matters much ;)
