Quorum Sensing and Chemotaxis
« on: September 01, 2006, 08:56:30 AM »
For what I have learn up to this moment the way to transmit information in DBots is by ties or by "looking at" other bots.

I wonder if there is the possibility of simulating long distance comunication through chemical signals or if it is planned to be included in a future version?

There are some thoughts in this regard, but there are some computer resource issues that may hamper the final product.  Look in the wiki for "environment grid".

Don't forget you can comunicate by shots, any positive shot addresses a memory location who's value is set to shootval for at least one turn.

That depends on the location.
if a shot puts a value into a location such as 913 (where no sysvars are contained) then there is no mechanism that automatically resets the value so it will stay indefinitely or until the bot actively resets it via a DNA command.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world
