Langton’s Ant – Hex pattern

Langton's Ant - 6

Click here to see it running.

Mostly similar to the previous Langton’s Ant experiment, this one uses a hexagon-ish algorithm instead of a quad. Because I am using square pixels to draw the results, it isn’t precisely a hexagon, but it is close enough to get the point across. Actually, the “ant” view is quite a bit more interesting than the heatmap view.
