Cactus Simulator

I hit 500 cycles recently. YAY, thanks!! Although I probably have about 50 cycles in ask questions where they haven’t selected my answer as the answer after admitting that it was the answer to their question :(

So here is a 500 cycle special!

How to play:

All instructions are explained in the game, but I’ll give you an overview anyway:

  • You are given a choice of what cactus you would like to be. All are found in The Cactapedia
  • You are then given an overview of your chosen cactus
  • Now the actual simulator starts. You (as you are told) make your decisions monthly. You can either: increase root length, stem height or number of spines.
  • You have to balance your decisions so that none of your stats fall to 0 (you die if they do).
  • You need to survive for 5 years (60 months)

Thanks to @xolyon for allowing me to use a function that they made which that the text can be printed letter by letter.
Also, for their colour codes tutorial which allows for colours with no imports, YAY!! :)


Have Fun, and if you do: don’t forget to upvote! :)

@Codemonkey51 can't be bothered, just tell me pls??

Codemonkey51

UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH @CodingCactus if you don't want to look it up here is the urban dictionary definition: link

CodingCactus

@Codemonkey51 by the way all of my emoticons are just from gboard, I don't have any of the symbols

Codemonkey51

@Codemonkey51 i saw it anyway before it got blocked

CodingCactus

@Codemonkey51 something like cuteness overload

@Codemonkey51 this almost became a r/wooosh XDDD

Codemonkey51

Lollllll @ChezCoder

ChezCoder

@Codemonkey51 just realized that I spelt woooosh with 3 O's instead of 4🤦🤦🤦

Edit: Realised there are 5 O's kill me 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦

Codemonkey51

LOLLLLL @ChezCoder

CodingCactus

@Codemonkey51 @ChezCoder, what is r/woooosh?

ChezCoder

@CodingCactus lol, here is what a r/wooooosh is > check this, it will give you a laugh :D

CodingCactus

@ChezCoder can't get on reddit, not allowed

:(

ChezCoder

@CodingCactus oof, lemme just explain it then :D, so basically, r/wooooosh is when some person makes a joke and another person just doesnt get the joke. For example, there was this meme that spelt the word "back" as "bacc" and some guy in the comments was like "Bruh you spelt "back" wrong, stupid."

ChezCoder

@CodingCactus or you can just search r/wooooosh on google and go to images :D

CodingCactus

@ChezCoder i got it

ChezCoder
ChezCoder

@CodingCactus also can u plz add me to repl.it/@CodingCactus/CodingCactus so I can add more styles? thx :D

CodingCactus
Codemonkey51

wooooshhhhhhhhhh! @CodingCactus

AmazingMech2418

@LizFoster LOL! The funny thing is that I knew what UwU was, but not TwT... Especially with how similar they are...

You know have 1243 cycles [email protected]

RayhanADev

Cool also I’m approaching your level @CodingCactus

@Codemonkey51 this was 7 months ago?? dang seems coding cactus beat you by A LOT now (also sorry for pingu on old thread, just thought it was funny to see this xd)

Codemonkey51

Hiya, @RayhanADev I see you have found my old comments.... yes I just don't use repl talk that often anymore, I do have some ideas for posts, so maybe I will post again sometime. :)

Actually I might post something soon :)

RayhanADev

@Codemonkey51 :D can’t wait xD.

WOAH A WILD @CodingCactus in its natural habitat: repl talk

ChezCoder

Recommendation: Something to skip the intro, it takes so long XD

CodingCactus

@ChezCoder if you can do that, i will add it, i'll speed it up currently for you tho

NoelB33

That would be awesome @ChezCoder

ChezCoder

@CodingCactus

Change the scrollTxt and other customizable parts to your liking this was just an example :D

CodingCactus

@ChezCoder done, thanks for suggestion

ChezCoder
ChezCoder

@CodingCactus Lol one more suggestion, for the clear console, do print("\033[2J\033[H",end="") instead of print("\033[2J\033[H"). The end="" will prevent the leading line-break at the beginning of the console when you clear chat :D

CodingCactus

@ChezCoder oh, cool

studentAlfredAl

Love this game. Harder than it looks lol

CodingCactus

@studentAlfredAl thanks, yeah it is a bit isn't it

studentAlfredAl

@CodingCactus I think I broke it when I spammed the enter key lol

studentAlfredAl

@CodingCactus every single time I last 1 year and 2 months.

CodingCactus
CodingCactus

@studentAlfredAl don't spam enter then

CodingCactus
NoelB33

Same, every single time I die at 1 year and 2 months. It’s really hard. @studentAlfredAl

Codemonkey51

Me too @NoelBryan

NoelB33

Grow your roots out as much as you can, only way I was able to pass it. @Codemonkey51

StevenRafft

Very nice, i like the game. still getting to understand it a bit more.

JonahElias

I am kind of new to python, how do you create the text colors?

CodingCactus

@JonahElias with ansi escape codes, if you look at the code, you should be able to work it out, if not, here is a great tutorial: https://repl.it/talk/learn/Styling-text-in-Python/33384

gibbsfreenergy

Nice -- You actually made something nice out of Python. It's impossible, python is vague

CodingCactus

@JosephSanthosh you can easily make great thing with python see all my posts

gibbsfreenergy

@CodingCactus Sure I'll c ur posts

gibbsfreenergy

WHAT YOU GOT 1500 CYCLES IN FOUR MONTHS!!!

CodingCactus

@JosephSanthosh erm yeah

CodingCactus

@JosephSanthosh I got 1000 cycles in a month so um yeah

gibbsfreenergy

@CodingCactus HOW??? Like I don't want to get cycles but that is clearly insane

CodingCactus

@JosephSanthosh well I guess you should try posting high quality things

gibbsfreenergy

@CodingCactus Yea! How do you make up ur ideas?

CodingCactus

@JosephSanthosh erm just have random ideas
