The aim of this paper is to introduce a lightweight twodimensional domain for evolving diverse and interesting artificial creatures. The hope is that this domain will fill a need for such an easily-accessible option for researchers who wish to focus more on the evolutionary dynamics of artificial life scenarios than on building simulators and creature encodings. The proposed domain is inspired by Sodarace, a construction set for two-dimensional creatures made of masses and springs. However… CONTINUE READING
