Battlestar bot 04-27-08

Long time listener first time botter...

Battlestar galactica.  Experimental version


It's only about half finished but here's the gist of how it works:

The mothership is where everything starts.  From birth, it sits in place.  Thanks to this, it can gather as much body and defenses it needs and not worry about moving.  In fact, the more massive, the better.

Every 30 cycles, it fires off a .1 repro 'drone' that flies off in a somewhat straight line

The drone has little energy (<800) and only 8 body, so it deletes its own excess genes to limit nrg draw.  If it finds food, it eats a couple thousand nrg.   Then it uses stored memory to return to the mothership and 'deliver' the nrg, sacrificing the drone in the process.  If a drone sees another drone that was born from a stronger mothership (more nrg), it will shift its return port to the stronger or the 2.  Supply of the fittest.

Hi there.  Welcome.

Very cool concept.  But it reminds me more of the Cylon base ships from the original series...  
Many beers....

Very Sad. Bot seems to be broken under current version. Moving to Untagged.
