"The Life"



  • Hello, men.

    Have you played conceptual game "The Life"? Or have you ever wrote implementation of it on Qt?

    I love this game because it's a bit more interesting than Mines and it's very simple to relax with it very fast.

    Small quest. What is the name of structure on my avatar?

    "Conway's Game of Life,":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_Game_of_Life or more commonly "Life"...

    bq. Small quest. What is the name of structure on my avatar?

    You've got yourself a glider there.

    Great Job, mlong! Have you ever wrote any implementations of "Life" on Qt Widgets/GL/QML?

    I did, back when I was studying. Can be downloaded from "LINK":https://sites.google.com/site/sierdziohome/programming/qt/sCellAut-v0.04.zip?attredirects=0&d=1.

    Be cautious, though, I have not tried compiling it for probably 3 years now :) The code is probably horrible, too. I was much worse a programmer back then.

    Great job, ~sierdzio! I've written my own implementation too, but I lost it on my previous HDD:(.

    Tomorrow I will present article with process of creation it.

    Good. It's a nice game, and quite humbling (just as the Langton's Ant I've included in the same app), when you realize how a small set of simple rules can lead to such complexity.

    As for "previous HDD" - invest in Dropbox :) and/ or use hosting if the project is FOSS (github, gitorious, etc.).

    Now I am using GitHub to host my projects. And I also have my personal cloud (xen) which I can access from my laptop with ssh. I don't need Dropbox)).

    Go seems a nice candidate for that as well, if you actually like to play a game.

    Or invest in a backup solution. Personally, I use a NAS and CrashPlan for off-site backups. IMHO, DropBox does not qualify as a backup solution.

    Yeah, I hesitated a bit before using the word "game"...

    I do play Go, by the way :) And can confirm similar effects.

    I wrote a Qt version of it -- implemented as a custom widget -- many, many years ago (think Qt 2.x) but it has long been sacrificed to the gods of bit rot and is just a mere memory now.

    It is definitely a fascinating exercise.
