Re: Thread For Your Unrecognised CA

Wow, I've got HEAPS of rules I want to post but don't think are worthy of their own thread. 1. This rule is the MilhinSA-meets-Generations treatment applied to B35/S1347. It, rather oddly, has both c/3 and 2c/7 diagonal spaceships: n_states:6 neighborhood:Moore symmetries:permute var a={1,3} var b={...

Doomedcell rulespace

Basically, this is a family of 3-state rules in which: -- A state 1 cell is born if it has B neighbours -- A state 1 cell remains a state 1 cell if it has S neighbours -- A state 1 cell becomes a state 2 cell if it has D neighbours -- Otherwise, a state 1 cell dies -- A state 2 cell always dies For ...

Re: Serizawa

Do you think this rule is omniperiodic? All periods >= 27 can be made by reflecting streams of spaceships, but of the lower ones there's only really p3 and p18. On an unrelated note, I've made pseudo guns for p17 through p26, of which only p18 has a known true gun: x = 659, y = 96, rule = Serizawa 2...

Re: Generations meets MilhinSA

This has to be one of the strangest things I've ever seen. If you put a block next to an ordinary 3c/116 diagonal puffer like this, it becomes a c/15 orthogonal puffer:

Re: Spaceship speed limits

• B2 ~ B3 rules: c/2 orthogonally , c/2 diagonally. The same bow-width argument as for B1 ~ B3 diagonal applies for the orthogonal case here. Diagonally the situation is the inverse: B2 is capable of widening the bow, hence we can plug in the general diagonal B3 growth rate. You sure about that? x ...

B3S348+B2S356 has even more fun stuff than I thought.
