Hello, me and Oldes wrote some kind of cellular automat based on our own rules, you can program your own 'cells', they can 'evolve' somehow, you can have different 'species' of 'cells' - we've programmed 'growing grass', 'vegetarians' (they eat just grass) and one 'predator' (he's eating other 'cells') but it was never released because of the following reasons: 1) small number of differenten 'species' - we have some 6-7 different species, most of them are just vegetarians, only one 'predator' and not very smart :) 2) there's no editor - we just made the engine, to change species or world's config you have to change sourcecode 3) the GUI makes use of one of the Cyphre's VID-style (I was lazy to program it by myself ;) but he wants to release them as shareware (well, his opinion not mine :-(((( ) so I promised I never copy his styles to anybody. I have to replace that VID-style first (it's tab) before I can at least publish the unfinished version. I wanted to make some snaphots but my monitor's broken so I run Windows in 640x480 and I'm not able to run that script :) I'll make usable version when I get some useful monitor, I promise :) If anybody's interested feel free to contact me for more informations. Bye, bolek
