Aren't they meant to increase when M1 is present, not decrease?

I've went ahead and made a merge request for a fixed Globe. Waving human intestines should be changed to a M1 rule as well (the version on the list seems correct).

There's also a bunch of aliases I committed yesterday on there, if you're willing to squeeze those in.

A couple of things I want to ask about:

- This inconsistency still exists:
x = 3, y = 3, rule = B346/S12/G7
.A$A.A$A.A!
[[ THEME Blues ]]

x = 3, y = 3, rule = b346s12g7
.A$A.A$A.A!
[[ THEME Blues ]]

- Will alternating rule aliases ever be added?
- Will the Square Cell theme be added for 2-state rules?
- Can alternating between a range-1 Moore rule and range-1 von Neumann rule be made valid? These two rules are equivalent:
x = 16, y = 16, rule = B1e2ak3einqy4jnry5einqy6ak7e/S01c2-ak3acjkr4-jnry5acjkr6-ak7c8

However, only one of these will actually be accepted by LifeViewer:

This pattern seems to run quite fast for the first 30 or so generations before slowing down considerably.

It's on the backlog.

Yes.

Yes. I'm still debating what to do with multi-state.

muzik wrote:Can alternating between a range-1 Moore rule and range-1 von Neumann rule be made valid?

They could be but I'm not sure I see the benefit. The engine supports any range 1 rules (Moore, Hex, von Neumann or MAP) but I didn't think mixing neighbourhoods was helpful.

The current algorithm processes cells within the pattern's bounding box which for a diagonally moving pattern is a bad case. I suspect the performance doesn't get any worse after 64 generations (due to history).

If you want to see it running faster reduce the number of HISTORYSTATES or put it in a not too big Torus.

Cheers. Don't forget about these three, though:

muzik wrote:B134578/S02345678|B6i7/S268

This, by the way, is Unidim1, so a first alias for the alternating rulespace. (Unidim2 is B12ci34578/S02345678|B7/S268 and Unidim3 B12ci34578/S02345678|B6i7/S268)

Like Socrates? (You have to scroll down to find it)

I always found the rule to be interesting. It was found by rhombic. Toroidalet found this ship later in the same rule:
#C an (11,1)c/49 Corderoid in a MAP rule. Found by toroidalet.
x = 28, y = 14, rule = MAPARYXfhZofugWaH7oaIDogBZofuhogOiAaIDogIAAgAAWaH7oaIDogGiA6ICAAIAAaIDogIAAg00IAmSocrates

A few non isotropic aliases (of questionable notability):

Why does LTL generations not play? You also can’t exit a viewer playing LTL generations.
I guess this bug is well known. When will it be fixed?

Apparently new builds come late to mobile, it still doesn’t work yet. (For those in the future relative to when I posted this, it is February 13, 2019)

Yes it's a known bug.
It's already been fixed.
I'm waiting for the fixed build to be released here on the forum.

I don't like how the red theme handles Generations and would rather it used a white fading to red like other themes. Then again, it is more or less a debugging theme, so i'm not sure if that would be better.
