Progress Update 10/31/2020

We made a change to cell walls. Now they don’t allow engulfing, which is to be expected since they are hard rigid structures that cover cells completely. We added this change to a new dev Build so, if you support us on Patreon, you can try it and tell us what you think about this new feature.

In addition to that, we also made some changes to saving and kept discussing about protein unlocking and how binding agents would work.
