New IM Commentry Thread

I'll start.

I'm very excited about the different Pigs I released (work in progress)! Let me know if you see any.  If you see pigs fighting eachother, that's just different strains, and the most recent one is usually better.Fluffy and Tangley are mine too.

Well I deleted all my old bots accidently when re-installing darwinbots for windows 7   . So I'm starting again and just running DB in the background with IM on and none of my own bots whilst I create Vox Pervico or tear bringer, should be a standard combat bot which send of viruses telling vegetables to go to the center of the map and in need they travel there and then a few farmers should be there to defend hopefully. I've noticed that all of sammehs stuffgoes through boom & bust cycles arriving reaching numbers of about 1000 and then they all seem to die within 1000 cycles.

Well my bots are built to last! In fact, my entire population was wiped to zero by SAMMEH'S DAMN VIRUS but a few minutes later I come back and it's full of Pigs again! One must have come through from someone else's sim.

*takes a bow*

I thank you  pretty much, webfungus is dominating my sim, but it's all in small clusters and only sends out spores when it's threatened, so it isn't spreading fast... had a few pigs, but they can't get near food because webfungus is hoarding it all...pretty much the same for most other bots.

There is a national fruitfly infestation on IM, and a swat-bot (copyright) is needed big time!

No need to panic everyone, everything is under control, I've improved pig so now it beats the flies!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Even the maker of flyfruit didn't want to release it again! This is why you shouldn't add bots which aren't yours....

If I ever get IM working, I should release a virus wich makes every infected bot resistant to viruses and stop it from releasing any more other then the antivirus gene.

Why not get it working then? It's very simple to set up.

When I download it, my antivirus goes nuts. I'll try turning it off, but I'm really busy right now.

Or you could just change all the costs to something insanely high to nuke all the sims.

I'm not sure you managed to spread those... I think if your sim was open and normal bots came in it shouldn't be too long before the sim froze, when a bot got infected.
Anyway haven't seen any flyfruit, but I'm glad. I have a sim running with spinners mutating freely and A_minimalis which had turned cancerous.

Got this new alge in though:

Seems to stick to the corners of the sim, sort of like Shrinking Violet that always crossed edges to shake off predators.
It also looks like it's gonna whipe out the spinners... but kinda suspected it wouldn√łt take much to disturb mutated spinners  It's too coustomized for F1.
