Re: Geometric structures  video and images
It won't let me update so I can't have them in cell lab

What happens when you download the genome from the first post? The Lipocytes are a bit different in the new beta version. Try changing the first few modes to Photocytes with split mass 1.53, and see if it works now. The new substrates are a bit different, but you can create one with default settings, no radiation, relatively low viscosity, and max light.

Re: Geometric structures  video and images
There are many ways to depart from the squarewithinsquare pattern and keep iterations of symmetry.
You can go rectangular (4096 cells)
Or, tilt the pattern components at an angle (4096 cells)
or tilt them with partial asymmetry: compare to the symmetry of the previous image (512 cells)
or go rectangular, at an angle, with partial asymmetry: it is a nonequilateral rhomboid, and the openings are a combination of squares and, in effect, diamonds / rhombuses (4 identical sides, but not square)  4096 cells
You can decompose the last pattern and recompose it back into a global square structure (4096 cells)
Set on an angle with partial asymmetry, a similar pattern can have a bit of an optical illusion effect: squares, diamonds, or rectangles? (4096 cells)

Re: Geometric structures  video and images
By angling the component squares differently than one another, you can produce a variety of structures / patterns.
Like this pinwheel / snowflake (2048 cells)
This gearwheel / two rings of 8 squares each (1024 cells)
And whatever you might call this pattern (2048 cells)

After I download it it won't open the genome in genome editor saying "I don't have the latest version,"so I can't edit it or put on the Petri dishbwisialo wrote:What happens when you download the genome from the first post?

Re: Geometric structures  video and images
Oh, I see. It's a very easy genome to create.
Modes 1  10: Photocytes with Split mass 1.53
Mode 11: Lipocyte that doesn't split
Mode 1: Split angle 0 (default)
even numbered modes: Split angle 90
odd numbered modes: Split angle 45

Wow! Really impressive work! didn't know this was possible, so many variations. Thanks for uploading all the pictures
Re: Geometric structures  video and images
Ok, I admit, I'm a little jumping onto your rolling train But I've noticed that your genome uses a sequence of cell modes and doesn't repeat them. I thought that could be made more interesting, so I created something similar that goes through a loop of only 4 modes:
And with a slight tweak and only 512 cells:

Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!
Re: Geometric structures  video and images
Very cool structures! Actually, most of mine do loop and use two or three modes. I didn't update the linked genome when I figured it out. But yes, add a mode and all sorts of new shapes are possible. There's basically no end to the patterns you can create like this. I started doing a few patterns that combine octogons with the sorts of things already posted, but none like the ones you posted. I shifted to the Dragon curve and trying to create the "torn square fractal." I hope you post some more of this stuff, because you'll certainly come up with things I wouldn't
PS  The Dragon curve is only 2 modes. Which makes sense given the way it's constructed mathematically. But ztill, that's crazy!
I have quite a few dragonish patterns in square and circular formation. I'll post some on the other thread.
