3 It takes a finite amount of time to copy this gene into the virus so at the beginning of the process, the gene length is calculated and this value is placed into a count-down timer which can be accessed by the robot via .vtimer(vtimer is the length of the DNA being copied * 2). This is a read only value indicating how long you have to wait until the virus is ready. Vtimer is 1 when there is a virus ready to fire. 0 if there is no virus either ready or being constructed, > 1 if there is still time left to wait.
