Just wanted to say it sure can be difficult to find out how to make the bots survive. I suspect that different bots behave diffirent in different versions (that's 3 different :P ..umm, actually now it's 4). I'm trying out this ecosystem concept. The herbivores keep dying out. I think maybe if I just running with veggies and herbivores for awhile they might evolve to be better survivors. Then I can put in the carnivors. Lot's of restart. And tonight it's partytime!  :party:  forgive me. Had a few ciders here. Hehe.

Bots will behave differently in 2.4 and 2.37 and before, but that schism should be the only major one really.

Maybe modify the bots to use in/out 1/2 instead of eyes. It's much more difficult to accurately mimic numbers, than to simply have "eyes" added to the dna.

A sort of directed evolution happens with these in evolving prey species to mimic identifiers of their attackers. Kind of annoying  :)  but an understandable effect of evolution.
