Digestion

Post by AaAShmo »

I can't figure out digestion for my life... Can someone please give me a list of cells to make in order to be able to beat it?

You will need at least a Flagellocyte to move, a Phagocyte to consume nutrients and a Secrocyte to uncoat the coated nutrients.

Having the same problem. I'm using a Flagello+Phago+Secro organism but whenever I try to split it the offspring dies right away no matter how I set split mass/split ratio/nutrient priority. I even searched for a YouTube playthrough of this stage but the video showed pretty much nothing.

Are you using Lipocytes as eggs?

Maybe it lacks protection from itself.. ;)
Are complex creatures too advanced for you to understand?
Well, let me flood you with them.

Yes. Edit: I also added a lipocyte to the main organism but the phagocyte becomes pale and dies before anything else.

Oh, it gets pale. Now I see. That means it has direct contact to the Lipase secreting Secrocyte. You'll want to prevent that from happening :)

I made a four cell swimmer flagg+phago+keratino+secro. But it's offspring always died immediately. I tried making it attach to the mother cell. That didn't work either. It got really wobbly.I tried messing with the skeleton thing. Didn't change a thing... Then I gave up.
