Germ Battle GameThis is a game I am working on: Germ Battle Game "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20120217 14:41:47
Re: Germ Battle GameHi MIF; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20120217 21:36:38

Re: Germ Battle GameThanks guys. Will add improvements as time permits. Working on a "freeze" weapon (because cold does indeed slow down germs). "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20120218 08:38:32

Re: Germ Battle GameLooks like we need something to slow down phrontister! That is a very big 704 there. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Germ Battle GameOk...with SlowDown Mode set to ON. Last edited by phrontister (20120218 21:12:25) "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #10 20120218 22:14:29
Re: Germ Battle GameYes, 704 is the max for the set of germs in this version. And a map where you can get good shooting coverage (like that one) is ideal. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20120218 22:47:09
Re: Germ Battle GameHe got the max! Now, I did 250 lines of Bayesian analysis to figure where to place my iodine alone and only got 597. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Germ Battle GameHi all;
I guessed that. Lots of hairpin turns cause high casualties for the germs. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Germ Battle GameThe iodine explodes when it first contacts the edge of a germ. I might make it go a little further. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #18 20120219 17:10:16
