Scientists,

I have discovered a new way of locomotion utilizing the Myocyte. Instead of contraction I use the bending capabilities of it. It's actually quite fun to watch ;)

Unfortunately, I haven't been able yet to find an efficient way to make the organism reproduce which is why I'm relying on light and Photocytes.

That is very cool! And super fun to see the first time. ;) You can give it some help / lingevity by increasing Salinity much higher.

I haven't played with substrates much, but is it possible to have friction conditions where you would you need 2 Myocytes rather than 1?

Yeah, looks like very low friction settings seem to favor 2 Myocytes over 1. But then naturally any swimming organism just runs any crawler into the ground.
