Good, and thanks everyone for the nice comments. Also I'll try to make one picture for each generation.  :)

I think thats a great idea, it helps give a visual to what has happened, something lacking in the other threads that tried this.

Where is MR.  Wizard?  I haven't seen him around since before I had joined!

He died in the Sim House.  ;)

Find a way to eat the red cells won!

Generation 2



The Cytos began to feed on the red cells. To make this possible, they worked together: When one Cyto touches a red cell it produces a certain molecular cue. A Cyto, which receives this cue, will follow the track to the red cell. After a short time the Cytos will cover the red cell, so that it will be swatted by the Cytos and they will swallow the red cell's parts.

Cyto gained following ability: Hunt in packs (This ability will stay until we leave the microscopic level.)
Now Cyto is at the top of the food chain. (But for how long?)

Stats:
Stats for Cyto:
Population: 2/6 (6 is the limit)
Diet: the smaller green cells, The big red cells
Reproduction: mitosis
Habitat: open sea, medium depth
Size: microscopic

Abilities:
    Hunt in packs

What should Cyto do next?

mass reproduction makes the pack hunting more effective, so they should do that, and also how can 2 cells mutate into 7 all of a sudden.

Oh flisch, instead of saying what the evolution will do for them, say what the evolution is.

God job Flisch. For trying this again, you get a fishystick
Continue and you might get a real one from Mr. Wizard (Yeah Right, like Mr. Wizard would show up. Unless hes searching the forum for his name...)

Are you mad?! Flish can't have a fishstick! He needs a flshstick! Flishsticks give you wings! lol

I thikn that hunting organelles would come in handy. Then they could be like microscopic blobbywolves. This would increase the effectiveness of pack hunting, as there would be a quicker take down, therefore other Cytos are less likely to be hurt by the prey (they would not have to attack, and risk being attacked themselves).
I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

Improve moving/speed won!

Generation 3



It happened, that sometimes the other Cytos weren't fast enough and didn't reached the red cell soon enough, so that the first Cyto got consumed. To avoid this some Cytos did a symbiosis with a strand looking organism. It will be used by the Cytos as a flagella and in return the flagella will get energy from the Cytos.
This way the cytos could hunt much more red cells than before.
But the red cells aren't sleepy, they just began to evolve to fight the Cytos. (Next update you'll see!)
Cyto's speed changed from "very slow" to "slow"

Stats for Cyto:
    Population: 2/6 (6 is the limit)
    Diet: the smaller green cells, The big red cells
    Reproduction: mitosis
    Habitat: open sea, medium depth
    Size: microscopic
    Speed: slow

Abilities:
    Hunt in packs

What should Cyto do next?

Oh flisch, instead of saying what the evolution will do for them, say what the evolution is.
What do you mean?  ???


Btw: I know, that there aren't much options yet, but the more complex Cyto will become, the more choices you'll have. ;)

Well, for instance, instead of just "improving speed" You could have made three options "Evolve Flagella" "Evolve Cillia" Or something of that sort.

Improve hunting won!

Generation 4


(At the top is Cyto and in the background, you see a red cell.)

Cyto gained a cytosceleton, which allowed it to evolve a "mouth". In fact it is an emargination sourrounded with cillias. Food parts will be moved in with the cillias and at the end Cyto will consume them via endocytosis.
But also the red cells didn't sleep and also evolved a cytosceleton, which allowed them to form pseudopods. These pseudopods give the red cell a higher surface, so that it's almost impossible for the Cytos to hunt them.
But the Cytos don't starve, because they can feed on the green cells beter now with the improved hunting system.
But the green cells are evolving too due to the pressure of the natural selection.

Stats:
    Population: 2/6 (6 is the limit)
    Diet: the smaller green cells
    Reproduction: mitosis
    Habitat: open sea, medium depth
    Size: microscopic
    Speed: slow
Abilities:
    Hunt in packs

What should Cyto do next?
