Input

Description

Input Pattern

This is an optional input pattern that will be passed through the node if "Use Input" is selected as its pattern type.  There is no need to use this input under most circumstances.  However, this input may be used by Genetica when the "Convert Lab to Basic Nodes" operation is used.

 

 

 

Properties

 

The properties for this Lab Node all fall into one main section, and are described here.

 

 

Select Pattern

 

 

As indicated in the above image, which properties are available in the lower portion of the Select Pattern box will depend on the chosen pattern type, although most pattern types will not have any additional properties associated with them.  The properties in the upper region of the box will always be available, as follows:

 

 

Property

Description

Scale

Increasing this value will cause the pattern to be repeated a greater number of times.

Seed

Changing this property will re-randomize the pattern, assuming the pattern is based on some random component.  The majority of the patterns do not have a random component, and therefore will be unaffected by this property.

"Select Type..." button

Clicking this button will cause a window to pop up from which you can select your desired pattern type.  Some additional properties may appear below this button depending on the pattern selected, although most pattern types do not have additional properties.
