# «Confetti 3a: Game of Life» byhenklass

on 14 May'15 11:38 in

It is relatively simple to convert Confetti3 ( http://sccode.org/1-4YU )to John Conway's Game of Life. You just need to change the rules and make sure that any creature that runs of the board returns at the other side. It may be a good idea to speed things a bit up. This may be achieved by using the Xenakis-inspired version: http://sccode.org/1-4YW .

Highest location-value in array = maxWidth*maxHeight
log(freq)=log(maxfreq)-((log(maxfreq)-log(minfreq))*(h+(maxWidth*v))/(maxWidth*maxHeight), so
freq=exp(log(maxfreq)-((log(maxfreq)-log(minfreq))*(h+(maxWidth*v))/(maxWidth*maxHeight)
Furthermore freq depends on value, which is either 0 or 1.
freq=freq+(freq*value) or freq=(1+value)*freq
Combining those 2:
freq=(exp(log(maxfreq)-((log(maxfreq)-log(minfreq))*(h+(maxWidth*v))/(maxWidth*maxHeight))*(1+value)
