Help needed for MB
« on: November 05, 2013, 01:28:07 PM »
I'm new in this and I'm not very good at English, but I'll try to understand anything.
I started with Darwinbots three days ago and I want to create my own multibot, a worm called Guss. This is the idea: three bots united in a chain, a head, a body and a tail. When you put a single bot it is instantly transformed to a head; then, the head generates the body and, finally, the body generates the tail. Sysvars .head, .body and .tail mark the type of bot. I made some trials, but I only get a big crowd of bots out of control.
For any details or suggestions, please contact me.

Sorry for late reply, I had more pressing issues to deal with, and I start work back up Friday.

Thank you for these data. My first design had only three free sysvars and twelve genes, and it doesn't work like I wanted. But there is a problem: I've tried to see how it works, but the bot info says that it has no genes, and I haven't seen any 'start', 'cond' or 'stop' in the DNA code. How can I know where does the gene start?

Wow, I just realized this is a Single Gene bot as well as an MB.

All I know is this thing behaves like a worm.

The line
Code: [Select]
'Begin coding region
start

Is where the gene starts.

OK. I'll use all this information to improve my bot. It's strange... a multibot with only one gene... I suppose that in Darwinbots all is possible. If I have any problem or you have some idea, please use this topic. Thank you again!
