IM is getting interesting
« Reply #15 on: October 12, 2008, 09:00:39 AM »
I tried running a sim on IM to see what was going on.... but I just keep getting flyfruits in, probably from old population files....
I can see there's 6000 seasnakes out there, but it looks like it's no longer the one that was infected by the fruitflies virus... it seems the sims are frozen or moving realy slow, I never recieved anything from erics sims and the population grafs where frozen... (But didn't run the sim that long, they may just have been slowed down a lot)
So basicaly I just want to ask : IS the seasnake out there infected or is it a new one ? And if it's the infected version could you post the code and how many mutations it's reached ? Would love to take a look at it, last I checked it you could barely see any traces of the original code and it's new behaviors where pretty interesting...

Last time I went online, and I actually managed to get something in that could survive more than ten seconds, it was a Seasnake that mutated to some sort of blob. For some reason, their body mass was 0.49. Is that supposed to happen, I though 1 was the minimum?

Yeah I also thought 1 was suposed to be the minimum, but I guess it must have found a way around that.
If it was acting like a blob and had such a small body size then I think it could have been the infected seasnake you got, I know it was dominating IM for a while...
But I can't get IM to work atm, last I got something in it was a seasnake infected with the fruitflies virus once, and infected twice by some other virus.
Looked like this :

But the last one I got before that was just infected twice by the fruitflie virus and strongly mutated.

The last one posted had a very interesting behavior, it no longer killed alge, and tie to everything including it's own, forming some kind of fungus wigling around and tieing the alge together, but only with very few bots. (It used to eat up everything in few second and grow heavily in numbers, now it keeps a low population and keeps the alge alive)
So it seemed like it had lost it's power, but if I intrudced carnivored to the sim the new species would attack the alge and the infected bots suddenly exploded in population killing evything in sight, then once the threat was eliminated they would go back to their previous behavior...
I'm not sure how it's doing that, but seemed to work realy well for some reason. Probably because it's not very strong against mutations, so the original rapid reproduction was causing it to devolve.
But I was kind of curious to see if it would eventualy lead to a dead end, or if it was still evolving on IM... saw there was 6000 seasnakes, but the population never updates and I never recieve anything from outside... only from old sims I was running myself... very old sims by now...
