Organelles are components of microbes that allow them to complete certain processes. Organelles can be added and removed from microbes through the editor. There are currently 7 organelles in Thrive. Each individual organelle placed in the cell increases its health by 10 units.

(Greyed out organelles aren't currently available ingame and there is no indept info relating to them aside from icons.)

Storage Organelles

Storage organelles increase the number of compounds that can be stored inside the microbe at any one time. If the number of compounds exceeds the storage capacity, excess compounds will be ejected.

Cytoplasm
Cytoplasm
Size Cost
1 hex 5 Mutation points
Capacity
10 compounds
Description

Cytoplasm is the solvent medium in which chemical reactions in the cell take place. It works as an empty and cheap structural material for shaping the cell.

Vacuole
Vacuole

1 hex 15 Mutation points
Capacity
100 compounds
Description

Vacuoles are where compounds are stored for microbes to use later. More vacuoles on a particular microbe means more compounds can be stored at one time.

Process Organelles

Process organelles perform processes, which take some compounds as input and return different compounds as output.

Mitochondria
Mito
Size Cost
2 hexes 20 Mutation points
Process
Respiration
(Glucose + 6 Oxygen → 6 CO2 + 36 ATP)
Description

Mitochondria are organelles which function to produce ATP from glucose and oxygen. Without a mitochondrion a microbe cannot function properly and will quickly die.

Chloroplast
Chloro
Size Cost
3 hexes in a triangular shape 20 Mutation points
Process
Photosynthesis
(6 CO2 → Glucose + 6 Oxygen)
Unlocking
While swimming, the player might find a green bubble

(representing a cyanobacterium or similar photosynthesizing protist).

Collecting this object will unlock the Chloroplast.

Description
Chloroplasts are an organelle which turn CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and sunlight into oxygen and glucose.
Thermoplast

Process
Thermosynthesis
Heat → Energy
Description

Thermoplasts are used in the theoretical process of thermosynthesis, process in which this organelle turns heat into energy for the microbe that has it.

Movement Organelles

Movement organelles allow the microbe to move by applying a force, at the cost of some compounds. More movement organelles consume more compounds, but allow the microbe to turn and move more quickly.

Flagellum
Flagella
Size Cost
1 hex 25 Mutation points
Description
Flagella are the basic movement parts of microbes. They allow your microbe to move faster, but also take up more ATP for each consecutively added flagella. Direction in which flagellum propel the player's microbe forward is determined by where it is placed before it is officially bought in relation to the center.

Combat Organelles

Organelles used primarily to inflict damage unto other microbes, for either self defense or predation.

Predatory Pilus
PredatoryPillus

? ?
Description
The predatory pilus is an appendage found on the surface of certain microbes. It inflicts damage to other microbes.

Agent Organelles

Agent organelles are organelles that produce, store, and release agents, which are compounds that perform a useful process outside of the cell.

Toxin Vacuole
ToxinVacuole
Size Cost
1 hex 40 Mutation points
Process
OxyToxy Synthesis
(3 Oxygen → OxyToxy NT)
Agent
OxyToxy NT
Unlocking
By swimming, the player may find a clear bubble with a golden center. Collecting this object will unlock the Toxin Vacuole.
Description
If the E key is pressed the player will release a single OxyToxy from their microbe's toxin vacuole. If this agent comes in contact with another microbe it will sustain damage.

Nucleus Organelles

Nucleus organelles are the centre of the cell, and are responsible for containing the genetic information of the cell as well as producing proteins. Every microbe in Thrive has exactly one nucleus; additional nuclei can not be added or removed.

Nucleus
Please add picture
Size
10 hex
Processes
Amino Acid Synthesis
(Glucose + Ammonia → CO2 + 2 ATP + Amino Acids)
Description
The nucleus carries the genetic information of the cell. It also comes with two attached organelles, visible below it: the endoplasmic reticulum, which manufactures proteins, and the golgi apparatus, which packages proteins to send them to different places in the cell.
