Zerobot evolution prize for conditional logic
« Reply #75 on: March 01, 2010, 11:32:25 AM »
Thanks for the virus, Houshalter, i gonna give it a try after my current sim.
It uses a virus_minimalis:
    >start .vshoot inc *.thisgene .mkvirus store stop<

After 2500000 cycles i got a species average of: dna-lenght 800; 100 genes; 35 condition statements and interessting behaviour.
the bot dna is mostly junk and unreadable, and so is the memory. The bots produce venom, shell, slime and poison in different amounts (i think they produce more shell at low and more poison at high energy - but i'm not shure, looks very random) and cycle between stationary and mobile phases, feed on enzymes or bonds and have a moving behaviour that changes over time.
i can't confirm at this time conditional behaviour, but i can confirm a lot of diversity in all atributes and a lot of adaptation. Especially virus evolution is interesting, because bots tend to find a way (even without slime or shell production) to prevent infection after some thousand cycles (i made dna execution somewhat expensive). i don't know if its biomorph to say there are "pandemics" of new viruses every once and a while (somethimes only a >cond< statement in a virus shell).

i used high brownian motion and gravity and subdivided a small world with shapes of about 1/6 lenght into 5 parts (good for species diversity).

please, anyone start a virus sims to confirm my findings.

Interesting. If numsgil gets the uploads working please upload the sim for the rest of us. Since internet mode isn't working, I might try a sim like that. On my computer Darwinbots tends to crash fairly often, so I might not get very far.

cool. i'll do that as soon as i figuered out how to upload sims.

in case you running DB 2.43 on XP use win 95 compatibility on Darwin.exe. Works for me!

I have a plan to fix it but I have to bring the forum offline for a few hours probably.  So I'll probably hold off on it till Sunday (in a go tournament on Saturday.  yay!)

If it is not too late, I think i found a zerobot with logic! It seems to change its aim depending on the number and position of ties... correct me if I am mistaken....  :P I have another similar one in the Bestiary.
