Re: Thread for basic questions

How does the apgcode syntax code work? apgcode Alternatively yl111_2_3_444 are encoded so that: 111 is the amount of generations for the population plot to repeat, that's why there are yl1's in some non-b2a rules. 2 has something to do with the period of the ash 3 is the population of the ash, I do...

Re: Miscellaneous Discoveries in Other Cellular Automata

Can this be stabilized? It would be fun to see alien switch engines, but none have appeared in apgsearch (probably due to the brittleness of this variant):

Code: Select all

x = 6, y = 4, rule = B3/S236e
3o$bo2bo$5bo$2bobo!
Any other transitions that leave the main switch engine engine intact?

Re: Catagolue Oddities

Are there any variant rulestrings that people have typed, or might actually type, by accident in good faith, that could result in their hauls going off into an annoying separate bin somewhere? Like b3-s23 (negative but no letters afterward) or s23b3, anything along those lines? "D4 +4" was a symmet...

Re: Thread for basic questions

What would it take to run a search where a glider hits 2-5 still lifes (with honey farms and fleets and bakeries, and 3/4 honey farms and 1/2 honey farms as well. No oscillators) and releases a glider and makes the debris reform but moved a bit? Kind of like HBK . Then they could be rubbed together ...

The problem with that is that some rules have lots of those error messages (B2ce3ai/S1c23-a, Movostill 2, etc.), so I feel like it may cause problems searching those rules, any ideas on how to add an option to disable this?

(Sorry for all the threads lately >.< I just think this rule is cool.) B2ce3-ir4a5y/S2-c3-y is pretty interesting. It has a failed replicator that turns into two spaceships and a p2 oscillator: x = 5, y = 3, rule = B2ce3-ir4a5y/S2-c3-y b3o$o3bo$b3o! (Make sure to scroll down for one of my new proude...
