Organelles are the "organs" of single-celled organisms. In Thrive, they are the building blocks of your cell, controlling its internal processes and abilities.
Each time you reproduce, you can add, move, modify or remove organelles inside your cell using the microbe editor. Almost all of these actions cost mutation points. Organelles are arranged in a hex grid, forming a contiguous shape wrapped by the cell membrane, and each organelle has a characteristic hex footprint. External organelles attach themselves to the membrane's exterior, so for many of them, orientation of placement matters.
As you edit your cell, other species also change their organelle layout. They have access to all the same powers and abilities.
