Direct link to program click here

As always, I hope you have as much fun using this program as I do.

My any revision after this one will be only to stabilize my contributions to the program further. I will not add more features due to limits of the programming environment.

My general request for any future developers:
Please do not add features that completely break older systems or features and then claim that the features you just added are over powered. This generally leads to making a program useless and is a bad development strategy.

edit: Forgot to post the actual changes with all the fun stuff going on.  :blush:

Ok, my last mod on tower did not make it. Lets try yet another drop here:

Changes:

Chloroplasts loss twice as fast (0.05 -> 0.1)
"Kill robots that are excessively greedy to there kids, using them to dump there energy." Instead of letting them live with 5 energy.
More info logged to zerobot log file during zerobot evolution special mode.

Err, sorry version 2.48.06. Now you can configure your IP/URL or PORT without having to change the source code.
Also, that mass issue is fixed. (Apparently I simply forgot to copy over the revision I was working on from tower.)
