The project is inspired by the classical Forest-fire model in cellular automaton, first published by Henley(1989). Each cell in the forest can be empty, occupied by a tree(green), or burning(red).
The controlling parameter of the model is F(Percentage that a tree ignites even if no neighbor is burning) and G(percentage that an empty space regrowth with a tree). In our project, we tried to reshape the environment detector into a linear form influenced by a strong Y direction vector, which mimics the prevailing winds blowing through the forest constantly. By testing different combination of parameter and strength of wind, we can get a new diverse morphology which reflects the expansion of two conflict forces, growing and firing, and flow of wind.
