An ambitious project to mimic the smaller things in life.

This is how I learned rust.

The idea was to build a cli tool that can generate enough life, and sublife (neutrons, protons, electrons), that when you give the tool atomic weights, it can "generate" appropriate elements.

Now it uses Bevy and the amazing ECS system to constantly iterate and update atoms on the fly with new particles.

Another ambitious goal, would be to set up bonding logic to create water or other compounds.

The most difficult part will be setting up an electro-magnetic field. That is why we are starting with the simplest form of an electro magnetic field.

More to come 🚀

Sans UI

Bevy/ECS code is not tested. Still in beta and too many refactorings will take place over the next year or so.

However if you want to fill up a bunch of RAM and see how performant the builder::generate_universe is, you can run the generate script:

warning this used up 80% of my RAM and I have 32GB of RAM!

460 is cubed and then 118 default protons and neutrons are made per atom!
