8 years ago I started a silly-yet-fun series of challenges with the babylon community. The idea was to have fun, and see the different ways people solve the same challenge. The original post is here -
@gryff has reminded me how much fun these were so… Let’s do that again!
To celebrate me deciding to try this challenge series again, I want to do the same challenge as back then:
3D Game Of Life!
A favorite of students and professors alike
The rules were copied from the original post (which were, in turn, “borrowed” from a different page):
- Cells (in this case, cubes) with only 1 or less neighbors die, as if by loneliness.
- If 5 cells surround an empty cell, they breed and fill it.
- If a cell has 8 or more neighbors, it dies from overcrowding.
Want to use physics? please do! XR? yes sir! A compute-shader that does all the work for us? amazing!
It’s not a competition! Just a community challenge. The winner, as back then, will win great prizes such as a lot of like on their post, praises from the team, and an AI generated image םכ a trophy, with Babylon spelled incorrectly.
Submit entries in the form of playground or repositories to me in a PM until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to come up with your idea. Please - make the code public. It’s a wonderful opportunity for everyone to learn.
