Re: Script request thread

Could a script for generating n-state margolus ruletables be made? Specifically for the commonly seen "modulo of overlapping rectangles" rules, on the checkerboard medium. For clarity, (probably with a simpler name) this would be the table generated for n=2: @RULE marg2diag @TABLE n_states:2 neighb...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

x = 6, y = 7, rule = PCA_4 5.H3$H.L.D3$5.B! Identify on this gives both a period and mod of 67292. However, running this to generation 16823 (67292/4) and rotating it accordingly gives a figure identical to the starting one. This also works for 33646 (67292/2) and 50469 (3(67292)/2), so the expecte...
