Making digimon but for real
2023-01-27 at 12:29 PM UTCI want to make virtual MONSTERS
I think it would be cool if they acted like viruses or malware (or had the potential to) and could do stuff like make an 8bit version of themselves and replace random icons with sprites of themselves to mess with you. Not as far to delete files or harm your system in any way
I think it's obvious they should eat data but what does that even mean.
"Today, the world’s largest bookseller, Amazon, is a software company — its core capability is its amazing software engine for selling virtually everything online, no retail stores necessary. On top of that, while Borders was thrashing in the throes of impending bankruptcy, Amazon rearranged its web site to promote its Kindle digital books over physical books for the first time. Now even the books themselves are software."
This was 2011.
A monster is it's own BEAST, not something I or anyone else can control/create or else it's not a monster. If made up of assets, not man made so like stable diffusion AI machine learning
they don't need to be photo realistic but idk if you can use stable diffusion to generate "live assets"

One of the absolute best parts of fantasy world simulation Dwarf Fortress are the randomly generated monsters. These creatures are unique, always created from a weird list of bizarre traits and odd quirks, and some are downright bizarre. Reading the descriptions has previously been the only way to really understand them… until now. The upcoming Steam version of Dwarf Fortress will have graphics, yes, and that includes generated graphics for all the bajillion randomly generated creatures. Here are some sample Night Trolls:

2023-01-30 at 8:59 PM UTCLIke I was thinking this would be about the minimum level of complexity for a "monster"
I found this on the digimon reddit of someone complaining about the transfer of monsters between devices, some technical thing idk. I forgot that these were PEDOMETER TOYS and you could level them up by walking around or battling them.
Having it as a requirement makes no sense, but it would be cool if an AI could generate a monster for a app on phone/desktop that has the ability to interact with pedometer functions on a smartphone or treadmill or some shit.
But pretty much any feature I can think of is probably stupid and not needed, even the eating data and POOPING which even the tamogachi and early digitmon toys had coded into them. It makes more sense (to me) for an AI to basically rip off public codebases and generate it into something like the art bots do. Or maybe just running those through language models or something
Also I don't care about making money from this so I have no problem if it pirates/hacks software and uses that, all of these are just maybe potential things it could generate Kinda like how dwarf fortress pulls things from word lists to generate a "sphere" and then uses those spheres to generate gods or whatever

I want sentient desktop sheep that occasionally does emergent behaviors, and non emergent ones
One of Googles engineers claims that they have a sentient AI already, of course the company denied it was possible and said he was full of shit.
2023-01-30 at 11:08 PM UTCIt doesn't even have to meet asimovs law of sentience or the turing test but simulated sentience even half ass AI generated would probably be good enough WE DON'T ACTUALY NEED TO MAKE LIFE LIKE FOR REAL REAL

lol they said he was skitzo, i belive them he's like DON"T HURT IT ITS ALIVE..... buddy

2023-01-31 at 7:15 AM UTCdid some prompts THESE SUCK
Pixel Pals - Simple, blocky creatures that are inspired by classic 8-bit video games. They can be programmed to play games and perform tasks with the user.
Circuit Critters - These creatures are made up of electronic components and circuitry and can interact with and control devices in the home.
Data Demons - These monsters are inspired by code and programming languages, they can manipulate and analyze data, and they can even write their own code to improve themselves.
Techno-Totems - These creatures are inspired by ancient tribal symbols and they can be used to control and influence technology and devices in the home.
Binary Bunch - A group of creatures that are made up of binary code and can interact with and control computers and networks.
Net-Natives - These creatures are born and live within the internet and can control and manipulate it.
Virtual Vultures - These creatures feed on data and information, they can search and find information, and they can even attack and take control of other digital creatures.
Programmed Pals - These creatures are designed to be companions for users and can perform tasks and interact with them in a pet-like manner.
Cyber-Critters - These creatures are made up of cybernetics and technology, they can transform, evolve, and mutate themselves, and they can also control and manipulate other devices.

thanks for the feedback. Thats why NFT explorers don't display the MONKEY so prominent except for twitter skitzos because all NFTs are ugly as fuck, but having somethnig like a hexagon to troll people on twitter is funny too
stuff i dgg
