Maybe the first Wa-Tor Voxel - only a small project for practice with polyvox - small but finished :)

With Polyvox and Irrlicht a Voxelversion of the old Wa-Tor -Simulation was done. Maybe Wa-Tor isnt the best name for a voxelcube cause Tor came from torus, but its the name from the beginning since it was presented in scientific american.
-the fishes swim and after some time they reproduce
-the sharks eat fishes or swim and if they dont eat they die or after some time they reproduce

Interesting stuff! I implemented Conway's game of life a few weeks ago (just in 2D while learning OpenCL) and that was the first time I had looked at cellular automatron. Obviously I thought about implementing something like that in 3D using PolyVox but I didn't get round to it

It seemed to me that it would be an interesting performance test case. It involves a lot of updating the volume and rerunning the surface extractor. Do you have any idea where the bottleneck is in your application?

thx for reply, yes game of life would be nice, but i have no idea how to convert the rules to 3d...

i dont know wheres the bottleneck im only a user of the two engines and the interface from gnurfos (thread in this forum) - but i found some errors and stopped both populations now at 7777 (overpopulation), now it runs better
