What is the current status of .sexrepro?
« on: September 27, 2008, 08:15:20 PM »
I remember proposed changes to require a matching dna substring of 3 bp in order for sexrepro to be successful. Is that currently the case? In the case of a failed sexrepro, does it fail completely or does it act like a normal repro?

Yes, I believe that's set up.  There a bit of an algorithm to it, but basically it tries to match up DNA strands to each other using the longest match it can find that's longer than 3 bp.  If not, it fails and (IIRC) just picks one parent's DNA randomly.  Read up on it here.
