Re: Diamonds And Spaceships Rule

YakForger is "playing" with CA, which is what I think we all are doing, really. Honestly I used to "play" with the Star Wars rule just to watch the "battles" in the building of structures. I would sit there for hours. There's really nothing wrong with how any of us "plays" with CA. Well... that's a...

Re: Randomly enumerating glider syntheses

No, that's the glider bitmasks. It works as-is for INT rules (you don't even need to change the rule=B3/S23) as long as the INT rule supports the glider and all phases of it, identically to Life. You can change the bitmasks for custom spaceships, and that would be the only thing you need to change ...

Re: Endemic periodic patterns and still lifes

Let's start finding minimal still lives with isorulemin S012345678. Can we do it with S2i/2n/6i/6n used only twice each? That's not exactly the same problem: the China labyrinth problem was considering S2pH in one direction to be different than S2pH in another. S2pH showed up a total of 3 times.
