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
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.
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.
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.
Associated Process: Chemosynthesis Cost: 45 MP Storage: 1 Size: 1
This part allows cells to produce glucose from hydrogen sulfide.
Associated Process: Chemolithoautotrophy Cost: 45 MP Storage: 1 Size: 1
Rustycyanin enables the synthesis of ATP from iron.
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.
Associated Process: OxyToxy Synthesis Cost: 55 MP Storage: 4 Size: 1
