A downloadable simulation for Windows, macOS, and Linux
What is this?
Every type of particle has a different interaction with every other type of particle. They attract or repel and they have chemical reactions when they touch. You can drag particles into the analyser on the left and press the button to print a reaction table.
The reactions can look very lifelike. Sometimes a universe contains a creature with something that looks like a metabolism: one particle goes in, is turned into another particle and propels the creature forward. All following from simple rules.
It is based on a video by CodeParade called Particle Life. If you set the reaction speed to 0, my simulation will be identical to his.
What are these parameters?
Temperature Determines how much the particles want to move
Reaction Speed How many reactions happen per time unit
Force Magnitude How strong the interactions between particles are
Minimum/Maximum Radius Minimum/Maximum distance for interactions between particles
Number of Elements The amount of particle types. Amount of atoms in the periodic table
And then the seeds! You can share or save universes by copying the seed and typing it into the seed box. Make sure that the number of elements is the same, or it will give completely different results.
WASD - move around
ZX - zoom in/out
U/I - speed up/down
Drag with mouse - move particles
