maybe it's me but I think I spotted an error in the 3D version. When I try a band around the cube it works in the 2D version but not 3D.
red rule is not entirely working as expected. If I set the same ruleset for red and green they should always be yellow, right ?
I tested that with turning 3 cells from a panel on.

I am also having some trouble with saving/loading but maybe that needs a certain folder.
2D version:
save/load pattern works
save/load rule works
save/load all doesn't work. it lets me save and load but loading doesn't do anything.

3D version:
when I click on save it says load and doesn't save anything.
now for the fun part; when I try to load a file created with 'save all' in the 2D version it works.
oh and now that band pattern also works Shocked
hmm let me check the ruleset:
0,3,1; 1,0,0; 1,1,0; 1,4,0; 1,5,0; 1,6,0; 1,7,0; 1,8,0 (doesn't work)
1,0,0; 1,1,0; 0,3,1; 1,4,0; 1,5,0; 1,6,0; 1,7,0; 1,8,0 (does work)
so is there some sort of priority in the ruleset ?


Let's see if it lets me upload presets,.. nope not yet allowed.
anyway a band around the cube would be:
[1,0,2] [1,0,3] [1,1,2] [1,1,3]
[2,0,2] [2,0,3] [2,1,2] [2,1,3]
[3,0,2] [3,0,3] [3,1,2] [3,1,3]
[4,0,2] [4,0,3] [4,1,2] [4,1,3]

Hmm yeah .. did some last minute changes without testing .. the original idea was to design in the 2D version (saving with Save all) and then to show it in the 3D version with using Load there ... but then added some stuff to the 3D version so it can do design too, but forgot to add code for that ... so changing the rules there did not work at all.

Ok .. made some changes to make it work a little better in the 3D version.

The way to work with the 3D version is:

- stop the rotation
- use reset to reset to the begin situation (or clear)
- change the rules to how you want 'm to be
- change the pattern to how yoy want it to be
- then save it
- run it.

When doing things in a different way there will be unexpected results .. like reset not working, or rules not being updated ... it's a bit primitive.

Also made the load/save all work for the 2D version .. it would only save to an existing file I seemed .. a bit odd .. so removed that, and it seems to work ok here now.

Re. red and green rules being set the same : yes that should result in all yellow - and it does that now that loading and saving works as should.

Re. priorities in rule sets, there is none, the specification order does not matter (or should not at least), for the 3D version updates in the edit boxes just did not work at all.

BTW, the files are just text files, so you can always edit those manually, and when wanting to post them here, adding .txt after the existing extension should make that work ... don't think I'll add the odd file extensions used to be allowed on the forum ... seems too specialised ...
