Welcome,

First of you need to run 2.45.03Beta, that is the only modern version of the program where sexual reproduction works.

Here is the sexrepro gene from one of the robots I used to test sexrepro:

Code: [Select]
cond
*.robage 100 =
start
50 .sexrepro store
stop
cond
*.robage 50 >
start
-8 .shoot store
stop

The robot will start firing sperm at age 50, and attempt to reproduce sexually at age 100.

You may also need to add logic that the Male robot should start looking for mates and make sure it is shooting -8 instead of killing the mates. Unfortunately, that is a little more tricky to do.

I was expecting it to be less stable, that is why I added the safemode feature.

Turns out it is actually more stable then 2.45.01
