The Virocyte is a cell with stick-like protrusions. It has the ability to infect other cells (explained below) that are not protected by a Keratinocyte.
(Full credit to Bwisialo) Virocytes can copy over as many as 7 modes total: the mode that you "Copy from," its two child modes, and the two child modes of those children. That is, 1 + 2 + 4 = 7 modes.
For example, if your genome looks like this
M2 has children M4 and M1
M4 has children M5 and M3
M1 has children M2 and M3
and you "Copy from" M2, then the modes copied over will be: M1, M2, M3, M4, M5.
Cell-specific settings Edit
Copy from X: The mode the virus copies from
Copy to Y: The mode the virus infects
- It is possibly the hardest cell to understand.
- Two organisms that infect each other with Virocytes is called cross infection.
- If you use two Virocytes in one genome, it is called double infection.
