Mossie flies

Can anyone give me the 3 part classifier code for the Mossie flies, I have an overpopulation, not sure how as I was careful not to leave the hand lying around in the Jungle terrarium, I have the magic core installed and want to do the kill half to delete a bunch of them but can not locate the correct classifier and agent code, leaving the hand in the piranha pond hasn’t made much difference in thinning them out

Do mossies even interact with the hand? I thought they leech from creatures. Relying on the hand for sustenance seems... less than ideal.

You can get the classifier from ingame without digging through the script files. I thiiiiink there was some kind of button combination that displays the classifier of whatever you point at, but A) I forgot it and B) it may have been DS-only.
Anyway, there are other ways, depending how much you wanna type.
targ hots outv fmly
targ hots outv gnus
targ hots outv spcs
These three codes will give you the family, the genus and the species of whatever agent you are pointing at with your fingertip, i.e. the three components of the classifier. The problem with these is that you must use them individually, and you must be sure to actually hit a mossie fly.
The convenient part is that if you hit enter in the CAOS line without typing anything, it will re-run your most recent command. That saves you a lot of typing. You can essentially hunt mossie flies with one hand on the enter key and the other hand on the mouse.
For a three in one code that gives you the whole code at once, you have to manually add spaces, which makes the thing a whole lot longer.
targ hots outv fmly outs " " outv gnus outs " " outv spcs


Sorry that I can't simply provide the classifier number, since unfortunately I do not have C3 installed at the moment. If I had, I'd check for that key combination as well.

EDIT: thanks to Malkin's link below, I can now say the classifier you're looking for is 2 14 4. Those codes still might be handy for the future, though.

Mr nStuff made a fix that allows the hand to swat mossies.

Thanks, this will all help a lot, I played C1, C2 and C3/ DS years ago and with all my time at home lately I’m back into the game again, so much is down and missing but thanks to a few creatures websites and Creatures Caves I have found a good deal of my favorite agents and breeds again

According to mosquito.cos, mossie flies do interact with the hand (2 1 1) in their hunting subroutine, which is indeed odd! Now, I do remember reading somewhere that leaving the hand in the jungle for too long did cause the mossie flies to flourish - which is why the mosquito smacker and the other fix were invented.

You might also want to consider removing half of their eggs (classifier 2 18 20). They are flying, invisible agents that become active once the mosquito population within their range drops below a certain point.

Thanks guys, although the one to get rid of the eggs helped some, I still had a bunch so I did the 3 part classifier search as advised before and got rid of all of them.... the code is 2 14 20163...now I just need to find the code for the wasps, also has anyone had any issues with errors in the norm terrarium from the apple, I delete all the apples and as soon as more fall from the tree the error pops up again

Are you using any modifications for the apples?

Also, could you copy/paste the error here, in a code command?
