EVERGLADES JUST BANTER

Post by Hannibal » Thu Apr 01, 2004 12:08 pm

Aha! Someone else has joined me, a second omnivore!

I ate all but 2 of those black rats before they escaped. Now I'm roaming again.........Probably bump into that other carnivore.......

OK, I'm in square....$(*%$£"!$^%&&*()()*&^^..., sorry, interference on the line.

Elusive, those little ants....didn't taste nice anyway, the few I ate.

Mmmm, turtle-meat! Much tastier! I realise that these species will bite/eat me later, but this is much more FUN!

:shock:

Whew! Lucky I had the adapt order on! I look at my computer and notice that I am now a yellow ant, not black. Then I see why. The yellow monkey known as Hannibal was trying to eat me! I automatically changed to his color. Cool. This didn't happen in the last game, though. What determines if or when I change color automatically? Anyone?

As you said, Egbert, adapt is what makes you change the color.

I supose banked turns only makes this happen faster.

When you use ADAPT, does it still use your queued orders? I'm guessing no, otherwise what is CONTINUE ORDERS for?

I think it only applies if your player name happens to start with E followed by G. Like those sub-routines you got Al to build in for WOK5........ :D

Oh dear, Sal. Just because I sent you flapping back into the water in a panic you thought you'd try sending Hannibal in...

Or is it a cunning trap so when he's weakened from fighting me, you can jump in and finish us both? Hmm. I think it might be...

Aye, the problem with Omnivore is that killing another species doesn't give you a whole lot of saturation. If/when you get carnivore though, saturation for eating other species skyrockets, from what I understand. That's my eventual goal, to see if becoming a carnivore is at all feasible given movement costs and such; I certainly need a lot more legs before that though. 8)
