Cell wall

Post by Captain_Pacho » Thu Nov 22, 2018 11:46 am

I want to suggest cell wall for every type of cell. I know , it it not biologically right to have flagelocyte with cell wall , but I think , every cell should be able to be more rigid, and I think , cell wall could be a way . There would be just another setting where we could set cell wall.. and if it would be set to 1 , at the end , the cell would be dead and transformed to dead cell which would be just as support cell

I would also like to have more rigid cells but the problem is more about programming. Solving more rigid structures in real time requires smaller time steps and it slows down the simulation. Alternatively I could switch to some implicit method but that will add lots of complexity. I'm considering looking into this for the future. There has been several suggestions in this direction like bone cells and I very much would like to see more robust organisms myself.

Yes I see problem .. so could you at least make adhesin stiffness to be really stiff? In bigger organisms there is no need to have as much solid cells, I think more important is to preserve shapes by preserving angles between cells . Or there is the same problem?
