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 @ChezCoder, what is r/woooosh?

Profile icon

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

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@ChezCoder can't get on reddit, not allowed

:(

Profile icon
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."

Profile icon
ChezCoder

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

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

Profile icon

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

Profile icon
CodingCactus

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

Profile icon
NoelB33

That would be awesome @ChezCoder

Profile icon
ChezCoder

@CodingCactus

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

def clear(): print("\033[2J\033[H",end="") # also, i suggest that for the clear console statement, you change it to this # you can but an if loop around the intro to run if this is true after the code below do_intro = True while True: clear() scrollTxt("Skip Intro?(Yes/No): ") decision = input() if decision.lower == "yes": do_intro = False break elif decision.lower == "no": break do_intro = True
Profile icon
CodingCactus

@ChezCoder done, thanks for suggestion

Profile icon
ChezCoder
Profile icon
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
