Triangular Grid Guns

Post by bprentice » January 27th, 2013, 7:21 pm

An archive, "Triangular Grid Guns.zip", containing collections of patterns for six different rules that can be run on a triangular grid is here:

Each of these pattern collections contain two or more guns. Some of them are quite beautiful.

These patterns may be run on my Java Triangular Cell simulator which is included in "Triangular Cell.zip". This archive contains the Java source code and the executable file TriangularCell.jar.

"Java Square Cell.html", which is also included in the above directory, briefly tells how to use my Java Square Cell simulator. Triangular Cell uses the same user interface as Square Cell. The main difference is that when editing patterns, selected cells are rotated 60 degrees rather than 90 degrees.
