 Mirality Systems: Creatures Agents


Note: in order to confuse people, this section is arranged in order of creation (so that the most recent stuff is at the bottom of the page), unlike the News section.

Since I'm a programmer and a tinkerer I've created some of my own Agents and Genomes. Also because I'm a programmer, I've concentrated more on connective agents rather than ones that interact directly with your creatures. I'm not an artist, though, so some of these may look a little rough around the edges. Or maybe not rough enough ;) If anyone feels inspired, feel free to create an improved version of my graphics and send it to me! Unless otherwise noted below, all agents, graphics, coding, etc. is exclusively my fault.

Please address any feedback to creatures@mirality.co.nz (you can also use the feedback page on the left).

The dates shown by each entry show when the agent was last updated, and an entry in the News section around that date will usually tell you why it was updated.

I'm actually a little surprised that this handy little gadget hadn't already been created before. Or perhaps it has, and I never found it :)

Anyway, it is designed to be connected to other gadgets; it holds a "comparand" value which it compares to any incoming data values, and outputting whether the data value was less than, equal to, or greater than the comparand.

This is most useful when combined with other gadgets that count things, for example, turning on a light when the number of eggs in the world is less than 3 (so you can try to encourage some more!) or sounding a siren if there's too much bacteria in the terrarium. I'm sure you can come up with all sorts of uses for this! :) Just try to keep it away from those darn Grendels and Ettins!

This agent will work with Docking Station, although it won't be much use unless you have C3 installed (docked or undocked), since most DS agents do not have connection ports.

C3 / DS (docked)
This agent simply adds the "Output Display Device" to the Creator machine, which it was mysteriously missing from. This agent file contains only the installation script; the graphics and action scripts are not included, which means you must already have Creatures 3 installed.

This agent will work with Docking Station, however as mentioned above it will not work unless you have C3 installed.

NOTE: This agent will not work properly in an undocked Docking Station world. If you want to use this in Docking Station, you should install the DS Connective Agent Pack (further down), and use that for DS worlds (docked or undocked) and this for C3 or docked DS worlds.

Multiplexor / Demultiplexor 23 January 2002

This is a set of two complementary agents. They are both connective agents, similar in a fashion to the Comparator above.

The first agent is the Multiplexor. This agent (pictured on the left above) outputs one of its inputs, based on the value of another input.

The second agent is the Demultiplexor. This agent (on the right) passes its input to only one of the output ports, again based on the value of another input.

In both cases, the top input/output is used if the most recent signal to the condition input port (bottom centre) is zero or below, and the bottom input/output is used if the signal is one or above.

These agents will work with Docking Station, although they won't be much use unless you have C3 installed (docked or undocked), since most DS agents do not have connection ports.

This file is a pack of updated installation/removal scripts for a whole pile of connective agents from Creatures 3, allowing you to inject them into a docked or undocked Docking Station game from either the original Creator or the new Injector. This file will only work in Docking Station (because it isn't necessary for C3!)

Actually, this agent pack is only used by the Docking Station tab in the new Agent Injector; if you use the Creator machine or the C3 tab in the Agent Injector you will get the original installation scripts. These will work perfectly well, provided you are playing a docked game, though even if you're using the Injector the agents will appear near the Creator machine. However, there are several agents that this pack will enable the Injector to produce which cannot be produced by the standard-issue Creator.

NOTE: This agent file contains only the installation and removal scripts; the graphics and action scripts are not included, which means you must already have Creatures 3 installed (though obviously it doesn't have to be docked).

Mirality Arithmatron 23 January 2002

C3 / DS
This agent will let you perform simple arithmetic calculations on values sent by other agents, producing a result which you can then send on to another agent. A very simple example of a use for this is to set it to "A - B, B = 155" and hook up the input to a pulse switch. The output of the Arithmatron (when the switch is on) will be pulses of 100, rather than 255.

And compare the picture with that of the Comparator -- I hope my graphics are getting better! :)

This agent will work with Docking Station, although it won't be much use unless you have C3 installed (docked or undocked), since most DS agents do not have connection ports.
