lol i just run it in background all day especially if im not using it...(which for me is most of the time though)
edit: also ive finally got some settings that i like for the 2 sims and so far only played for today. they already are taking different approaches in evolving but mostly by the alga... one has opted for bigger body sizes and fewer numbers while the other with about the same mutations has went for more numbers with about 2 mutations. the animal unfortunately has not yet gained even 1 avg mutation..
well lets see how it goes over night. last one i tried crashed with no bots on either screen and graphs cleared out. on the base simulation i had it to where they never really reached the nrg cap even at their highest. not so much anymore... might have to up the cap a little to keep things interesting and allow more room for development
