Protease Adhesin Removal

Post by vb0t »

Suggestion: Protease only removes the adhesin connection when it has significant contact with both cells, borderline wedged between them - if this was made so maybe the cells would only have to be touched to break it, it would allow for lots of interesting creations.
Also moving secrocytes is very hard but allowing them to adhere would be a violation in their rules. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Isn't that exactly how protease works?

Protease ONLY breaks adhesin connections if the SAME secretocyte is touching BOTH cells that are connected. This makes it very hard to tear appart most organisms (except linear swimmers).
EVEN if 2 different secretocytes are touching both connected cells (each secretocyte is touching each cell) they don't get disconnected. Again, this makes it very hard to diggest adhesin connections.

The original poster, i think, is trying to say that if we could destroy adhesin connections by touching JUST one of the cells, it would be made more feasible.


Now in my opinion it would be a good change for the game, and to make it not too OP it could be made that it only breaks adhesin connections by touching 1 of the cells, so long as the cell is not a keratinocyte. Meaning: if a phagocyte and a keratinocyte are connected, the secretocyte should need to touch the phagocyte in order to brake the bond, if the secretocyte touches the keratinocyte (ONLY) then nothing happens.
If you love it hard enough, eventually you'll be the best at it (o)
