Suggestion: water current

Post by ShiN1GaM1 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 3:03 pm

Hey, I thought that maybe it would be really useful if cilliocytes or similar cells could produce a water current, pushing/pulling food or cells, like rotifer does:

I think it would be possible to implement, in simple terms one (Peter) would need to put a surface chart around the cell producing the water current, it wouldn't be too big, just a small field around the cell, and it would be applied to nearby food/cells so it wouldn't require low CPU( Example of surface chart )

What do you guys think? Can you see other possibilities?
If you love it hard enough, eventually you'll be the best at it (o)

That would probably mean they could push against their surroundings and move like flagellocytes. And even if they didn't people would find a way to do that (just like with the gametocyte drive).

These mechanism could potentially replace some cells as an alternative, like sucking the walls and 'sticking' into it.
