Possible to Clone?
« Reply #15 on: March 21, 2010, 07:45:01 AM »
I had an an idea... actually not so much an idea but an elaboration... but it's the thought that counts  

Let us say there is a bot called x and an enemy called y

x roams arround and attempts to evade enemies, whilst firing a virus which shoots -1/-6 damage shots at y and -2 health shots at x, x has an tag along the line lines of 51 .100 store whilst the infected has something along the lines of 38 .100 store which is inspected with memval/memloc. When x detects a tagged bot it follows it.

That way the robot can survive and even prosper without bieng killed/outcompeted by its own virus

I once made a bot like that called Sentinel - it would make veggies sit in one spot while building up huge defenses, then eat enemy bots and feed the original bots. The major shortcoming I found in the bot is that the larger the viral gene is, the longer it takes to produce, so the bot would only hold out on large sims.
