Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Using the recent developments in 3c/7 technology, I constructed a psuedo-period p7 3c/7 rake. The true period is 84: Fantastic work Goldtiger! That's quite a construction. Thanks for taking the challenge! Would your end piece work with odd width as well? I need two different backends for odd and ev...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Thanks for taking the challenge! Would your end piece work with odd width as well? I need two different backends for odd and even widths. Ahh, I kind of glossed over that but it crossed my mind. I haven't actually looked back at the width 7 chicken wire ship to see if it connects. I just assumed th...

Getting back to c/2 chicken wire ships. I could somewhat simplify the generic descent. Here is a witdh 6 example: <snip rle - c/2 width 6 chicken wire ship> Nice. That's a fairly easy to use set of components and connections. This method can be used to construct ships for arbitrary width chicken wi...

Re: Search utilities executable?

Oops, I meant D4_+1, D4_+4, C4_1, C4_4 and 1x256. I've updated the zip file in the post above with executables for all symmetries. You'll need 7zip or other file compression utility whic supports the 7z format. please also do 5g(or 8g) or these: https://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=425...

What about others like C4_1, C4_4, D8_+1, D8_+2, D8_+4 or even 1x256? Yes, I can do a few more. D8_+1, D8_+2, D8_+4 - these aren't valid symmetries. D8_1 and D8_4 are already included.
