Not sure how to do this one. Was trying to make a light monster at the top that will fall on the other guys. Problem is I can't get it to grow fast enough before it falls. I tried adding a bouyocyte to slow the fall, but I still have nothing. Anyone got ideas here?

Try making the chassis of your solution much smaller either by making the design simpler or divide the properties into smaller modules, individually floating by their own Buoyocyte/s.

Maybe the problem is that they're interconnected to each other. If one were heavier, it'll pull the others down. Try splicing it down to smaller bodies and have the Buoyocyte/s carry smaller packs of load.

An idea laying around my head

So, I'm thinking a solution about making a cell that grows and covers the entire top petri dish, suspended by Buoyocytes.
Here's the trick: The Buoyocytes dies of old age, and the "blanket" drops, possibly ending the swimmers' whole career. The photocytes are kept from aging using something that involves... setting split ratio to extremely small.
Still hasn't implemented it, what do you think?

Maybe a ring of death, where they just form a connected circle and only divided at the top of dish, make sure the connection is very stronger so no swimmers can run through, and then simply grow the circle and push outward so swimmers eventually run out of living space?

That was my first thought, but I could never get them to split fast enough to blanket all the swimmers before it falls

Edit: missed the bouyocytes

Somehow missed this one. Gotta keep in mind that it has to die when it's done the deed

Keratinocyte die very slowly, but they will die eventually. Just need to make sure the ring expand to the whole dish before the Buoyocyte cells to hang them die due to old age.
