Food (Again)

normal post 120 1
Instead of introducing sugar and protein, sugar food items should apply either a speed increase for a short period of time or just used as food. The player would select a group of ants, and select "speed increase" and they would run to the chamber in which the sugar items are stored. This could change the game play in many different ways. I would also suggest adding what type of food you want to feed your ants. You would select a percent of what type of food you want. Example: 40% seeds, 30% sugar, 20% meat. Sugar, because of its multiple uses, would use up more food value. This would make you make decisions about the type of food you want.
Sugar could also used in the initial start up of the formicarium, as ant keepers sometimes use sugar to boost their colony.
Note: Meat does not change anything, just for food diversity. Sugar food items would be used last for making/upgrading tiles.

Ants are beautiful,
but if fooled around with,
can be deadly.

That would be interesting and would give more strategy, but there would have to be a lot of balance changes potentially.
