Conway's Game of Life

Series
Cellular Automata
Description
A somewhat optimized implementation of Life as it was meant to be, in an unbounded 2D space. Pan and zoom are available, and whole patterns (e.g. glider guns) can be placed with a single click. This is intended to help span the gap between the 'naive' direct NetLogo implementation in the Models Library and a sophisticated CA engine like Golly. This version is feature-complete and more-or-less fully debugged, but still needs comprehensive documentation in the Info tab and series writeup.
