Floys belong to the flocking Alife creatures variety, sharing with them the social tendency to stick together, and the lifelike emergent behavior which is based on a few simple, local rules. They differ from most other Alife flocking (Boids-type) implementations by being territorial animals that defend their territory against intruders. |
They are implemented as Java applets. The more advanced applets allow changing traits and personality of individual Floys (iFloys & eFloys), and also breeding and evolving the population (eFloys).
