Did you have fun with the latest release? We hope so! This week was slower than usual, but we always have something new to show you. This time we changed AI Cell’s behavior so they get bored after chasing other cells for a while and then leave them alone. You can try this new feature if you are a Patron.
We have a new patch release, Thrive 0.5.3.1! This was originally planned to be the release with binding agents, but those haven’t had progress done on them for a while, so here is a patch release with some important fixes that we didn’t want to keep the players waiting. The most important being the constant saving errors should be gone now (please open an issue if you still get saving errors), and we got a fix to the microbe AI being much worse than it should have been due to a small mistake in the code. But that’s not all, let’s see what this new release brings us:
There’s a new feature, moving organelles! Now it’s possible to move them around in the editor with a small MP cost. This feature is early in development so there are some bugs we need to fix. It’s also available in a new dev-Build, as always available to our patrons.
We keep working on the patch report. New graphs were added showing the evolution of Species populations, Physical Conditions and Atmospheric Gases over the eons. Although right now the only useful graph is the one showing populations, since the other characteristics don’t change yet.

Last week we released 0.5.3, which sadly didn’t include the binding agents yet. We are planning to release 0.5.3.1 once the binding agents are done. Some work happened this week regarding the saving errors that seem very common in 0.5.3. …
New year, new release. Here’s Thrive 0.5.3! For the first time ever Thrive is available in many new languages, all of this is in part thanks to our community, which has helped with several of these new translations. This version also brings key bindings, improved tooltips, new editor features and much more!
