Since i started playing Minecraft i've become interested in logic gates.
This project took me about 6 hours in total, and please don't make any comments about this being a waste of time. Because while making this i really learned A LOT and i had really FUN doing it!

This is the result of veeeery many logic gates working together.
Each cell in this video calculates how many of the neighbour cells that are active. There can be 0-8 neighbours active.

If the cell is active and have 2 or 3 neighbours it stays active.
If the cell is dead and have 3 neighbours active, it's changed to active.
If none of these conditions are met the cell dies.

When not recording with fraps the calculation for each generation takes 2-6 seconds depending on the complexity of the pattern.
Each cell has a width of 13 blocks, a length of 16 blocks and a height of about 35 blocks.
So far the cells starting conditions are set off manually but i have saved loads of space in the design to make place for wires to make it more managable.
