     Pretty cool 3D lower level AI simulator. There is a food chain. The low creatures eat the stationary food, the high creatures eat the low creatures. Once a pair 'mates', the mother carries eggs with her for a while. Once a counter is reached, the eggs hatch. This counter varries with genetics. When a pair mates, the child's DNA is composed of 40% mother's genes, 40% father's and 20% random. The genes contain information that controls the creatures behavior. This behavior works like Maslow's heirarchy of needs. There are 4 states, Look For Food, Look For Mate, Run Away, Roam Around. Genes contain a priority for each state. A creature will not do a priority 2 state if the requirements for priority 1 are not satisfied. These tolerances for these requirements are also contained in the genes.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
