WHAT IS IT?

This is something that is intended to look like a flame

HOW IT WORKS

Heat diffuses and evaporates in the world. Invisible particles produce heat and cool down with various speed (faster if heat > ideal-heat, slower otherwise). New particles are created at the bottom of the world with random positions and output-heats. Particles move to the best closest patch from the 3 closest next patches in the next row. Best patch is the patch with least absolute value of the particles ideal temperature - heat. All particles have the same ideal-heat which is 15

HOW TO USE IT

Press "go" to start the model

max-particle-output-heat:
maximum initial particle output-heat

max-flame-base-width:
determines the width of the starting position of flame

flame-base%:
how many patches that are determined by max-flame-base-width should make a particle. 2 is 100%

color-balance:
heat multipliers for red, green and blue colors to determine the final rgb color of the patch

THINGS TO NOTICE

Notice the shape evolution of flame columns
