Revision as of 18:10, 2 April 2021

Cells in Thrive are comprised of a variety of functional parts that determine how the cells move, eat, and survive. Each part on a cell contributes to it's overall size, osmoregulation cost, and mass. Every part posesses a unique function or purpose that benefits the host cell, usually by producing energy from compounds or providing the cell with defensive/offensive abilities. Cell parts take the shape of hexes within the editor, and can only be placed adjacently to other hexes.

Structural and Protein Parts

These parts are initially available to cells without a nucleus, and are generally small and relatively inefficient.

Cytoplasm

Unlock Conditions: N/A | Associated Process: Glycolysis | Cost: 22 MP | Storage: 4 | Size: 1

Cytoplasm is a structural part that represents relatively empty space within a cell. It's main use is providing storage space for compounds, and increasing the overall size of the cell.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Metabolosomes

Unlock COnditions: N/A | Associated Process: Aerobic Respiration | Cost: 45 MP | Storage: 1 | Size: 1

Metabolosomes allow cells to produce relatively large maounts of ATP at a quick rate, as long as sufficient oxygen remains present.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Thylakoids

Unlock Conditions: Inhabit a patch containing 1% lux or above. | Associated Process: Photosynthesis | Cost: 50 MP | Storage: 1 | Size: 1

Thylakoids are essential for allowing cells to harness the power of the sun to produce free glucose.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Chemosynthesizing Proteins

Unlock Conditions: Inhabit a patch with hydrogen sulfide present. | Associated Process: Chemosynthesis | Cost: 45 MP | Storage: 1 | Size: 1

This part allows cells to produce glucose from hydrogen sulfide.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Rustycyanin

Unlock Conditions: N/A | Associated Process: Chemolithoautotrophy | Cost: 45 MP | Storage: 1 | Size: 1

Rustycyanin enables the synthesis of ATP from iron.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Nitrogenase

Unlock Conditions: N/A | Associated Process: Nitrogen Fixation | Cost: 55 MP | Storage: 2 | Size: 1 |

Nitrogenase grants cells the ability to produce their own ammonia using Nitrogen and ATP.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Oxytoxysome

Unlock conditions: Kill or be killed by other cells numerous times. | Associated Process: OxyToxy Synthesis | Cost: 55 MP | Storage: 4 | Size: 1

Upgrades:

  • TODO

External Parts

These parts generate on the outside of a cell's membrane when placed in the editor, and are typically used to interact with the external environment in various ways.

Flagellum

Unlock conditions: Possess a speed of less than 20 or produce 10 excess ATP. | Associated Process: N/A | Cost: 55 MP | Storage: 4 | Size: 1

Flagella grant cells a directional speed boost, at the cost of increased ATP consumption.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Predatory Pilus

Unlock conditions: Kill or be killed by numerous cells | Associated Process: N/A | Cost: 30 MP | Storage: 1 | Size: 1

The predatory pilus delivers contact damage to any cells that touch the part. Can be used offensively or defensively.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

Cilia

Unlock conditions: N/A | Associated Process: N/A | Cost: 40 MP | Storage: 4 | Size: 1

Cilia are currently uninplemented, and functionality is still undergoing discussion.

Upgrades:

  • TODO

These parts are exlusively available to eukaryotes, and are generally more efficient but larger.

Nucleus

Unlock Conditions: N/A | Associated Process: N/A | Cost: 100 MP | Storage: 15 | Size: 10

The nucleus has no special functions on it's own, but unlocks the ability to place the powerrful organelle parts for any cell that posesses it.

Upgrades:

  • TODO
