NaiveLife

Inspired by this post, I have made a script that runs a pattern in NaiveLife for a given number of generations:
import golly as g
import os

filename = g.getdir('rules') + 'NaiveLife_Emulated.rule'

contents = '''@RULE NaiveLife_Emulated
@TABLE

neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:none

var b = a
var c = a
var d = a
var e = a
var f = a

    advance()

The rule this implements is also fun to play with on its own. For example, running a pattern in a 10x10 torus with shift 1 long enough usually eventually becomes a stable agar:

x = 7, y = 7, rule = NaiveLife_Emulated:T10,10+1
B4$4.2A$3.2A.A$4.A!

Nicely done! Here's the original NaiveLife spaceship:

Code: Select all
x = 9, y = 20, rule = NaiveLife_Emulated:T64,64+1
4.2A$6.A$5.2A$6.2A2$5.A.A$5.A.2A$6.3A$7.2A11$B!
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!
