(sorry for flooding for suggestions :D )
Why not adding Community Creation Section between gene bank and settings section?, We know that uploading and downloading substrate and gene from internet, dropbox or wtv are you using and then importing it and opening the downloaded item is a bit 'complicated' and confusing for new-comers on cell lab, so why not add this section?, The highest rating creations will be placed as the top recommendation or 'suggested for you' part, and the default sorting is top creations, (additional) basically we could implement a social media system here where the creations you post can get likes and comments and you can make a channel that can be subscribed, also a manual or tutorial video in game?

Major downside with this idea is that you need to host a server for such functionality. That server needs to be paid for.

Hmm you're right, I hope this one's able to be added in the game in the future

There is already website, forum for this game, so I think there wouldn't be problem to make some PHP script , and implement a little browser in game .

That's not the same as data hosting.

What's the difference? I'm really interested what are problems of this. Security because uploading files to server? I don't think memory would be such a problem, if we wouldn't generate images of genomes , because when you see the size of those files are very low so.. I'm not expert so I really would like to see reasons why it is Impossible

Not at all impossible. But file hosting costs money. That's the factor to take into account. Someone has to pay for it. And I think we all agree that we cannot have Petter be this someone ;-)
