Re: 'Skimmers'

Here's an adjustable 8c/(108+4n) spaceship using it... I wanted to try a spacefiller on a twisted torus with one infinite dimension, but Golly doesn't seem to support that -- or am I just doing something silly? Neither LifeViewer nor Golly seem to be happy with the ":T128,0+2" variant below. I enco...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Are there any c/2 spaceships whose forward propulsion mechanism has an even number of cells at the leading edge instead of an odd number of cells? I have mentioned a partial that I found here . There's a way of supporting a similar partial from behind, but it still requires odd leading edge compone...

#C What's the width of this thing (in gfind metric)?
That's width 15 with symmetry, or d7n1ul112.

Big bump.

Some promising (2,1)c/5 partials for ikpx2:

I'm currently running a search in B36/S0235 and another in B26/S02 (slow going).

I'm also running a separate search in Amoeba, inspired by the partial in the OCA spaceships thread.
