List of updates since 28. August 2013 for GoL status page

Postby codeholic » December 9th, 2014, 5:14 pm

2014 has been plentiful of discoveries. But the last update on the Game of Life Status page is still 28. August 2013.

Let's collect all updates, so that Jason can update it quickly and all at once. I'll keep the top post updated.

If there is a notable variant (and normally more appropriate for adding it in the collection), it is mentioned in parens.

Patterns that don't affect the GoL status page, but are worth adding in the pattern collection.

Definitley, this has been a rich year and half for spaceships.

There's also simsim314's collection of improvements to the gun collection that Jason maintains -- that didn't get very far, but it does have a couple of new guns in it, not to mention the universal-period O(log N) gun-building script:


With the Snark and semi-Snark available, of course most of the guns can be improved at this point, but at least this is a start...!

I presume that you are referring to patterns that should be added to Jason Summers' jslife pattern collection. In that case, there are many more patterns that need to be added. One glaring omission is Michael Simkin's switch engine ping-pong. I think the most recent version of the jslife collection also doesn't have the snark.

When I was searching for billiard tables a few months ago, I started collecting oscillators and guns that needed to be added to the "osc" section of jslife. There are still several patterns to add, but hopefully I can get it done soon.

I thought about it, but I'm not sure about the category, that it would fit into (interactions or misc, probably). If I'm not mistaken, 26-cell quadratic growth hasn't been listed in the jslife collection.

It's in the life-status collection (osc-refl-gun/0043-refl.lif and osc-refl-gun/0053-refl.lif)

The 26-cell quadratic growth pattern is under "jslife-oversize", which used to be a separate collection.

But it's not in the jslife collection. The status collection is really only a quick reference to prove the existence of patterns that the status page claims exist. The jslife collection is currently the best general life collection, but it is in need of an update.

Here is a collection of oscillators that I think should be added to the "osc" section of jslife:
jslife-osc-supplement.zip
(55.24 KiB) Downloaded 432 times
I tried to give proper credits for all patterns, but I didn't always know people's real names, so I used their forum alias. I'm sure there are problems with this collection, so if you see any errors, omissions, or anything else wrong, please reply.

Edit: If you're not familiar with the jslife collection, you can download it from this page.

I also want to update the rest of the jslife collection. I'm currently trying to come up with what needs to be added, but I can't possibly remember everything, so I'm asking for suggestions on patterns. Here is what I have been thinking about so far (in no particular order):
  • All the patterns mentioned by Codeholic in the first post of this topic
  • David Bell's 260-cell sawtooth
  • c/5 orthogonal greyships by Hartmut Holzwart
  • c/5 diagonal puffers and rakes by Matthias Merzenich ("Sokwe")
  • fast, stable, almost-spartan pseudo-Heisenburp by Adam P. Goucher ("Calcyman") (based on a pattern by "Guam")
  • Small moving sawtooth by "cloudy197"
  • 10x10 garden of Eden by Marijn Heule, Christiaan Hartman, Kees Kwekkeboom, and Alain Noels
  • Maybe some of the other patterns from "Pattern of the Year" competitions (2010 and 2011). I don't know about some of biggest patterns (e.g. Gemini). I'm not sure what sort of size limit should be put on patterns in the "jslife-oversize" collection.
  • "Loafer" by Josh Ball ("velcrorex")
  • A loafer gun (e.g. the smaller of these two constructed by Shannon Omick)
  • A dart gun (I'm waiting for the technology to stabilize on this one) (Edit: this was already on Codeholic's list)
  • Mike Playle's Snark
  • Semi-snark by "Guam"
  • Stable MWSS-to-glider converter by Matthias Merzenich
  • Objects that can be synthesized with 4 gliders (a bunch of new ones by Bob Shemyakin, and a few by Matthias Merzenich)
  • Some of the other new syntheses (e.g., the 6-glider synthesis of eater 2 by Tanner Jacobi)
  • c/5 orthogonal wickstretchers by Matthias Merzenich and Hartmut Holzwart
  • A bunch of c/5 orthogonal spider tagalongs by Matthias Merzenich and a few by Hartmut Holzwart
  • This collection of small c/4 diagonal spaceships compiled by Nicolay Beluchenko (the collection includes many new ships found by Nicolay)
  • This collection of small c/4 orthogonal ships which includes many new ones found by Josh Ball and Matthias Merzenich (I think it's missing a 41-cell ship):

  • I'm almost certain that Josh Ball ("velcrorex") posted a 41-cell c/4 orthogonal spaceship at some point. I think it was the shortest c/4 orthogonal ship with a width of 14 or less. Edit: found

Edit 2: A few more patterns that I missed in my first list:
  • Smaller 1-cell thick quadratic growth by Chris Cain (smaller than Stephen Silver's original)
  • Whatever is the smallest half-baked ship (Edit: this was already on Codeholic's list)
  • Whatever is the smallest 31c/240 ship (centipede maybe?) (Edit: this was already on Codeholic's list)
  • p6 wick termination by Jason Summers and Matthias Merzenich to complete a c/4 diagonal wickstretcher
  • Some c/4 orthogonal puffers by Matthias Merzenich
  • These two ships by Matthias Merzenich:

I do have a copy of Adam's phi calculator, here you go(I also have a copy of his pi calculator, just in case.)

As for the c/4 spaceship you mentioned, is this what you want?:
x = 19, y = 12, rule = B3/S23

No, the pattern I'm thinking of had a minimum population of 41 (I think).

Thanks! Could you post the pi calculator as well?

Of course, here you go.

Also, the reason I thought that was it because velcrorex found that particular ship here as well.

Right. That one is included in my list of patterns to add to the jslife collection. I vaguely recall the shape of the 41-cell ship: It was sort of squareish, I think the dimensions were 17x12 or 17x13... (Edit: I actually think the dimensions were either 17x13 or 17x14) I think it produced a 2-cell spark at its back end (the non-domino duplet). I sort of skimmed through Josh Ball's posts, but I couldn't find it.

Just for the record, the most direct source of the pi and phi calculators, and a number of other patterns in the "huge" to "faintly ridiculous" category, is directly through Golly: Help > Online Archives > Very Large Patterns.

I suspect that this new-ish feature of Golly (Golly 2.1, wasn't it?) is in an unusual enough location, under the Help menu, that people don't always find it with a casual exploration of the GUI.

There's quite a large list of patterns that I'm plotting to add to the Very Large Patterns page, the next time insomnia strikes (and after the semester is over). Many if not most of them are on the list above. Top of my list is that it's extremely silly that there's a link to Gemini gun, but no actual Gemini. Seems a little unnecessary to have to wait around for the gun pattern to emit the first actual spaceship...

Maybe Very Large Patterns is a better target for update than jslife-oversize? For that matter, other subfolders and collections could also be added to the Online Archives -- that's what it was designed for, though there's always the thorny question of who will actually do the maintenance!

I think Jason Summers is already dead, or at least has given up on GOL; that may be why the status page has not been updated. Could you try and contact him to disprove this hypothesis?

Yes, thanks Josh! Huh, it was more triangular than I remembered. Do you remember when you found it?

velcrorex wrote:I'd also like to add another c/6 pushalong

Oooh, that must be new! When did you find it?

Thanks Dave! I didn't realize that those collections were being maintained in any way. When I download a new version of Golly, I usually add my favorite collections directly to the patterns folder for easy access. I agree that the very large life patterns (like Gemini) should be put in the "Large Patterns" collection rather than jslife-oversize. I'm not sure how small you want to get with patterns in the large patterns collection, but currently, they all seem to be bigger than the patterns in jslife-oversize. I think it might still be reasonable to add the "smaller" big patterns to jslife-oversize, while keeping the "really big stuff" in the large patterns collection. (e.g., 1-cell thick quadratic growth in jslife-oversize and centipede in Large Patterns).

He could just be taking a break from the Game of Life. Jason Summers has been a very active participant in the community for the last (at least) 20 years. I wouldn't be surprised if he took, say, a 2 or 3 year break somewhere in that time. As to whether he's alive, well, his conwaylife.com account was last accessed on December 10th of this year, so unless he died in the last week (or someone else is accessing his account), he ought to still be alive.
