Posted:

**November 26th, 2016, 9:05 am**A thread for suggestions for golly.

My suggestions:

--------

Python functions (sorry if some of these are already available):

-getapg(cell-list) Returns the apg code of the cell list pattern

-apgrle(apgcode) Gets the RLE of the apgcode

-convertcl(rle) Converts the RLE into cell list

-convertrle(cell-list) Converts the cell list into rle

-forcedeletelayer() Deletes the current layer without the save dialog

-getcenterx() Find the X of the current center cell

-getcentery() Find the Y of the current center cell

-randfillsym(symmetry) Makes the next randfills have a certain symmetry

--------

Triangular neighborhood and overlay (indicated by T at the end e.g. B2/S3T)

Moore+2 neighborhood: Moore neighborhood that extends an extra cells (2c ships!)
