Who else is online?
« on: September 01, 2014, 11:49:45 AM »
Hurrah, IM is working again!

I have a sim online right now, populated with a work in progress bot of mine, "Einstein". Occasionally I get something called "Mutate" through, but there isn't much variety other than that. So I was wondering, what is this bot and where does it come from? How is Einstein doing in other sims?

Also, to those who aren't on internet mode, and have a spare CPU core they aren't using, why not come join the fun? :)

That is from my eco_evo simulations. Go to simulation emporium and follow instructions to configure. Works by systematically evolving a mutate robot against a base robot. For the name of any given robot go to DNA and view the label on top. Anyone can edit the names for this things at runtime, the robots are constantly evolving after all. This mode does restart once in a while as it is constantly optimizing. Just do not put a robot that dies instantly.

Also I do recommend all my mutation modes (mutations tab in global settings). I am not running a normal IM so I have no idea how your robot is doing. If you want to progressively evolve your robot my mode is your best bet.

Is it possible to have it set to see the normal names for such bots? Instead of having to clicking in the dna window. There may be several mutate/base bots and I would only see it as one specie.

Sounds interesting. So you have an evosim connected to internet mode? Aren't you worried you'll get an invasion from Fruitflies or something? Or do you only have an outbound portal?

It was a bad move on my part to put the strongest darwinbot in the world into IM :/ I just got tiered of sea snake hydra.
I am hoping that if people make there settings and robots unique enough someone will beat them. I am doing so soon myself.

Peter, the use of the graphs is to display flux between the mutate and base robots only. How about a msgbox from help that lists all unique robot tags instead?

Also to preload a robot with a tag add 
Code: [Select]
'#tag:blabla to the DNA.

What about.

Seasnake (base)
Seasnake (mutate)

So it can be distinguished from other base/mutated bots.

What might that be?

It is really hard to beat.
And I am running the same source code everyone else is.

Are you talking about Fruit Flies v0.21?

I am. Just saved myself some time for another person to do some thing this stupid, I guess. Going to start a sim on XP to see how bad it has become. :/

I have indeed had a couple of massive invasions from them, but they don't appear to be very well suited to my sim. Einstein has survived through both of them, and emerged victorious, manly through waiting until the fruit flies starve.

In my sim there's a fight going on between 834 fruit flies, 361 etch and around 20 einstein bots. Lower in numbers, but each einstein bot is quite a bit bigger.
