I was looking for DNA for GenePool 6! Then I followed the link on the forum! :)
In someways, DB is more difficult than Darwin Pond!

Thanks, Guys

What version are you using?  Can you post the save here?  There might be something off with the loading code.

How do you keep your population from dropping from 500 to 0? I'm not sure about how the Pond-Mode works?
I loaded up a saved game and was warned the Robots were using Bouyancy Mode! After switching to Pond mode is when I saw the population drop!

Thanks, Guys!

Note I think it'll run under wine, though I haven't tested it myself.

For Darwinbots2 there's a license in the install directory:

I'm not sure what the name of this license is off-hand.

For Darwinbots3 it's just a normal MIT license, so it's more permissive:

Darwinbots Program Source Code / Source code license
« Last post by EnderCrypt on June 22, 2020, 07:03:09 PM »
Hello

im a bit curious on what the license for Darwinbots is? (specifically im wondering about Darwinbots 2, but i guess hearing some insight about 3 wouldnt hurt either if thats available)
forgive me if its written somewhere obvious, i looked through the wiki, i looked in the public source code, i looked through these forums, and i have as of yet found any mentions of a license

i assume is that the license is just full on copyrighted (as with any creation that has nothing else written on it)

Darwinbots3 / Re: Trying to get darwinbots3 to build.
« Last post by Numsgil on December 30, 2019, 05:40:41 AM »
Modules look for dependencies in Bin/Release/...  You might double check that .dlls actually got put there after you ran build.py.  Likewise in Visual Studio you might try expanding the "References" of a project and see if there's any broken links.  DarwinbotsGUI has references to Azimuth there, for instance.  I can tell you is I did a fresh checkout on my machine and it worked, but it's entirely possible there's some assumption I'm making about how stuff is setup that isn't true for everyone.  I looked through the project files and didn't see any hard coded paths, for instance, but maybe there is one somewhere being sneaky.

Alternatively you might try looking at any local changes.  It's possible that VS2017 tired to do an in-place upgrade that screwed some stuff up.

...

On purpose I didn't want to have one single solution.  It may be overkill (arguably an enterprise solution) but it helps enforce separation of concerns and makes cloning one of the individual modules on another project easier (say, if I wanted to mess around in Unity with the Math library and not with the graphics library).  I've also found that a single solution tends to dramatically inflate build times, even if it only contains projects that aren't changing, as Visual Studio has to scan for which projects have changes.  I'm ideally aiming for build times of under 1 or 2 seconds to keep iteration time high.  The downside is that it's harder to do a build of everything (though build.py is supposed to make that trivial) and I often need several visual studio instances open, one for each module.
