I started out on a Friday afternoon with a question on my mind; how easy would it be to recreate Conway’s Game of Life using ICE in Softimage? Why this was on my mind is of little importance but here is the result:
The initial positions of the “cells” are read from a texture on a grid. This simulation can go on infinity spreading in all directions depending on the starting layout. It is effectively on an infinite grid however I don’t think my RAM will agree.
More info on how its made to follow.
