Virtual Petri Dish

  • Ok, First thanks to all that helped me out! This is my first descent working thingy... It's not really a game, but rather an experiment in AI that I am working on. Now that it is somewhat working, I thought i would show it off and get some comments (and errors that I can correct...)

    Thanks for any input..

  • That's actually kind of neat to watch . Looking forward to seeing more.

  • Haha, that's great! I love it

    You could have added a distort/lens like effect as they swam around, kinda like in Spore. But that's just for show of course.

  • Aw Cool! you can do that? OK, now you will have to explain how... Is it an effect? Actually i wanted to add something like that to the right so you can place a Flablet on an examination table that is "up close" and experiment/examine the species. That may take a little more studying on my part before I can achieve it though.

  • Why is my system reporting Smitfraud-C when I run that exe? Says that is is spyware. Is that a false positive? Any one else getting that?

    I would hate to get a virus by watching a program about bacteria. LOL

    You could have them spawn circular grayscale textures from just behind them as they move, with a lens or magnify shader on them, and increase the size slightly before fading out. If you add a background under them, it should give a neat water like appearance.

    Thats strange... I did a scan of the file and found nothing. If someone else could scan the zip file and let me know if there is a virus, I would appreciate it... If so, I need to get a new virus protection software!!!!!!

    Those pesky Flablets are at it again!!!!!!!

    Neat idea. I need to work out a lot more issues before I really get into the "cool look" phase, but I will keep that in mind.

  • That came up my my spybot not my ani-virus program. So it may have been a false positive.

  • That's pretty cool. I'm thinking that more detail on the graphics would make it better.

  • Ok, I have added a few more upgrades. There is now a holding box to the lower right where you can place subjects. They reproduce now! Also, you can add extra Moss by right clicking on the petri dish or the box. I changed the formula for Moss growth so it does not take up so much resources. It still crashes every now and again though... I am still working on a Menu, and I will (hopefully) be sprucing up the creature graphics. I also increased the age and randomized it a bit so they live longer. If they are reproducing to fast, just drag a few over the edge of the dish and drop them... They die that way...

  • Wow i really like this. Been doing these kind of "games" myself with construct. But im still a noob and my results are way worse than this. So really impressive! Still working on this?

  • I like it

    But, I had a crash after about 5 minutes of watching, placing and dragging around...

  • Hey Everyone. I have been away for a while, but I would like to get back to work on this sometime soon. Family comes first, you know...

  • i love it ,Nice work.
