In new version of Cell Lab
gluocytes has no "Nutrient Priority" property
and dont kill any cells. How to solve?

By the time you reached this challenge you're suppose to have the Nutrient Priority parameter unlocked. Just finish the required challenges and you'll be able to unlock further parameters.

Yes, advanced parameters have been disabled for the early challenges in order to not confuse new players. They should be unlocked by the time you get to this challenge. Is that not the case?

yes, I skipped few challenges, but not so much. I will try to solve them first.

Yeah, hm, I just found out that actually that parameter is not available by the time you get to that challenge. No wonder, it's so hard to beat... I think we need to change something here. I will address it with Petter.

To me, nutrient priority is available.

Yes, probably because you've solved the challenge that unlocks it. That's not the point, though. I've tested with a new download and Nutrient Priority gets unlocked after the Parasite challenge becomes unlocked.

It took me some time to know the strategy to beat this without using Nutrient Priority. It is, suprisingly, solvable without the Nutrient Priority unlocked. Quite fascinating to watch the colonies live and die at different spots of the 'waves'.

For me, Nutrient Priority is unlocked in the level "Slippery Slope" which is 3 stages AFTER parasite.
