Progress Update 12/26/2020

We are getting closer to the next release, it’s scheduled in two weeks so stay tuned for that! Some things that this new version may feature are Thermoplasts, last week we showed several concepts and models for this new mechanic and today we have something new: A Temperature Gradient Bar.

This bar shows the temperature difference between the cell and the exterior, as this difference increases, so does ATP production. We also have a new devbuild for patrons, new ice crystal models, an editor popup for manipulating organelles and we had a long discussion about the future Aware organism editor.

    • Fixed Carbon and Dioxide not being one string for translation purposes
    • More CI checks for problems in translations
  • Progress on the Processes panel
