  abstract =     "We present the results of our replication of Karl
                 Sims' work on the evolution of artificial creatures in
                 a physically realistic 3D environment. We used standard
                 McCulloch-Pitts neurons instead of a more complex set
                 of ad hoc neurons, which we believe makes our model a
                 more general tool for future experiments in artificial
                 (co-)evolution. We provide a detailed description of
                 our model and freely accessible source code. We
                 describe our results both qualitatively and
                 quantitatively, including an analysis of some evolved
                 neural controllers. To the best of our knowledge, our
                 work is the first replication of Sims' efforts to
                 achieve results comparable to Sims' in efficiency and
                 complexity, with standard neurons and realistic
                 Newtonian physics.",
