Just thought this looked cool. The bot is Animal_Swarm.

Interesting circle in the middle.  What causes that?

These two genes:

Code: [Select]
cond
 *.refeye *.myeye =
 *.eye5 0 = or
 *.totalmyspecies rnd *.timer 5 mult add 32000 mod dup dist *.totalmyspecies <
start
 314 rnd .aimdx store
stop


cond
 *.totalmyspecies rnd *.timer 5 mult add 32000 mod dup dist *.totalmyspecies >
 *.refeye *.myeye =
 *.eye5 0 = or
start
 *.totalmyspecies rnd *.timer 5 mult add 32000 mod dup angle .setaim store
 10 .up store
stop

Basically: The swarm moves toward a certain point based on *.timer, but allows a maximum distance from that point based on *.totalmyspecies.

I've never seen it quite so well defined though, which made me want to share :)

Hmm...so its a pack-bot
Autism can allow so much joy, and at the same time sadness to be seen. Our world is weird, and full of contradiction everywhere, yet somehow at moments seems to come together, and make near perfect sense.
