Along with the other features we have planned for 0.4.3 I think it might be a chance to introduce some new organelles. Let me know what you guys think of these different organelles and whether it’s viable to plan them for 0.4.3:
Size: 1 Hex
ATP Cost: 1 ATP / second
Description: Increases the compounds yielded from engulfment by 50%. The next lysosomes you place increases yield by 25%, then 12.5%, etc. Basically this organelle is what eukaryotes use to evolve towards become specialized towards predating on other cells, particularly be swallowing them via engulfment and digesting them using Lysosomes. It also ties into the Multicellular Stage, since lysosomes will be a common feature of cells specialized towards digestion in a colony.
Also, is it time to start adding in the different environmental adaptation organelles? For example:
- Anti-freeze Proteins to allow your cell to survive in much colder patches (i.e. the Ice Shelf)
- Pigment Proteins to allow your cell to survive solar radiation on surface patches (like the Tidepool, Epipelagic, or Estuary)
