What's this icky, paint-like goop?

Game of Life 3D

| Version: 1.1 | Last Updated: Oct 02, 2017

This MAXScript for Autodesk Maya animates the 'Game of Life' in the third dimension. The candidate rules for the third dimension can be found in this paper . You can find a preview of the resulting animation on Youtube.

You can modify the following values in the script to generate your own game:

  • framecount:
    Number of generations
  • x_max, y_max, z_max:
    World size
  • sliderTime:
    Starting frame of animation
  • frameoffset:
    Framecount between generations (for fadein/out for new and dying cells)
  • survive_min,
    survive_max, birth_min, birth_max: Rules / Neighbour boundaries for new and dying cells.
