Snap Sharers Communicating
« on: May 17, 2006, 03:16:44 AM »
In an evosim I'm running with a Snap-Sharer(Snap tie gene plus normal share feeding) they appear to be using shots to naturally exchange some sort of information.  

Not sure what they're saying, but it's a sim-wide phenomenon; presumably benneficial since it's not being selected against, as you'd expect given the cost involved. Pretty impressive especially since even the basic capability to shoot wasn't in their dna at the start.

I'm going to try and work through their dna to figure out what they're sending. It's a crazy mess, even worse than normal. The changes I made are rearing their head with all sorts of larger and negative numbers being stored/inc/dec.  

Alright, I'm heading out to sea again. I'll be back in a couple of weeks about.
