actually many real world stuff applies with the game if it happens more often then we need a bit more diversity than the few herbivore heads we have. That's true. But lots of stuff still doesn't apply in current version. Like why carnivores so hard to evolve naturally. A lot of reasons behind it, m...

For every reproduction to roll 200 times random function (sexsual reprodution twice the amount) for gene swapping is quite an overhead computational wise. Rand is not a quick function, unless you just use very poor pseudo random (or predetermined by seeds). Normally if you want 10 points cross swap,...
"But herbivores evolved more often then carnivores. That's why we don't see much of the exotic heads in naturally evolved creatures?" That doesn't really logically follow. If something evolved more often, you would expect *more* diversity, not unless, especially if you ignore convergent evolution. ...

still going for about a week crashing and what not(to be expected) but this time i tried low mutation rates(0.2) and small breeding range(10%) with a size 2 map crater map. so far they evolved into a species that i can believe could be real (no twig legs or anything like that). they evolved into gi...

It's actually not that expensive as you might think. Especially after the wide use of CRISPR. https://www.quora.com/How-much-would-it-cost-to-build-a-CRISPR-Cas-system-in-your-basement Most cost would be equipments, not the strain or target cells. If you know someone with access to those needed equi...

Some biopolymers are produced by bacteria, like PLA, can be used as source material to produce bioplastics.They are already part of the modern green-plastics production chain. And here is a paper discussing how to use bacterial production for biodegradable plastics http://www.sciencedirect.com/scien...
