about : about artificial life

Couldn't add a comment to the artificial life post you made,zanroversi, so wrote this post.

I find that hexagon and jeu de la vie don't work much at all whilst opinion and vie_K work just fine.

I can 'force' the hexagon to render in a dynamic fashion by feeding a number range to the Iteration input. Sorry if I'm missing the obvious with hexagon and jeu de la vie grille .

Re: about : about artificial life

Hello cybero,

Sorry, I see your answer just now. Too bad if doesn't work. Hexagone is another "game of life" that I found pretty !

It uses some personal "clips" I made to compose faster. Maybe they are not included. (do you see "survol et clic" pink patch into "cellules" macropatch ?)

Just in case (but I'm sure you did), did you see the "RUN" input parameter ? (I don't see it when played online) It has to be OFF to compose a start pattern and ON to launch the evolution.

Attached, a built version with QB just to see (check input parameters). But it was more to start a discussion rather than showing a well-known app.

bye

Have managed to get a better result out of both the hexagons_K and the jeu de la vie app. The app is a real step up as a more immediately paramatisable version.

Interesting work, some calculation :-).

Just looking at how to run kind of non stop.

As it happens I'd been doing a lot of currently unpublished work with hexagons, so was pretty interested to see what could be done with that.

Game of Life in 3D would be really great.

Definitely, 3D game of life is a great idea !!! I will try to do something soon.

Rules of this hexagon.app (attached) are different and death of cell is less frequent. This leads to interesting evolving sequences.

Performances are bad because of number of cells. (but there is no special param. except "run"). Do you have any idea to make it faster ? or are we touching the QC limits ?

You can try a start pattern like attached png :)

thank you again for patience and curiosity.

Re: about : about artificial life

Just discovered that my expecting too much of too small a parameter value in jeu de la vie was the primary cause of it's seeming failure to launch.

Now finding that it's working AOK [my bad •~]

On the other hand , currently getting a blank with the hexagons app you posted above. Flagged or unfledged, nothing happens.

Re: about : about artificial life

hum... I reach my limits of understanding.

Is there QB known issues I must pay attention ?

(I checked again, it works, slowly)

bye

Re: about : about artificial life

Just taken one factor out of the equation at my end, re run all your posted comps and applications, all brilliant. Work beautifully.

Sorry about my initial misunderstanding.

Partially the result of my previously running your comps and apps in a slightly non standard environment.

ha, perfect !

hexagon pattern evolution are funny, aren't they ? It leads often to pretty oscillating sequences and final patterns radically change with a simple hexagon displacement from the start pattern. But I haven't seen any "glider" yet.

About "vie_K.qtz", it was an attempt to generate a population which regulate itself. Green spots are daughters of blue-red couplings and they are predators. There is built-in rules of spontaneous birth for red-blue couples and spontaneous death of green predators. According to these rules (lifetimes) you may obtain demographic oscillations which is a good sample of emergent property.

For "opinion evolution.qtz", (the title is only a kind of joke :-) the general idea is "making connections increases your chances to make more connections". You can see how green-cyan revolutions happens sometimes !

I visited your website... waoh ! It's a gold mine !!

greetings !
