Multi-threaded boids

12 Minutes of pure boids. Straight off the laptop. No editing. Enjoy.

The boids in this video and the environment in which they swim are procedurally generated…

My boids are now multi-threaded so there are moe of them. They are limited now only in the poor performance of the pesky Unity trail renderer!

They spontaneously organise themselves into beautiful, emergent patterns that resemble fireworks. Sometimes they seem to form a wall climbing collective, yearning upwards and then emerging over the mountaintop to fly!
