### Re: Request a Rule to be "Tamed"

While it is unfortunately true that a nonexplosive rule cannot be created with those ships, it is highly likely that a stable one exists in the same general area with some different ships. Keep searching!

(side note: it is generally advised to trim long quotes so they don't take up as much space)

Here's a useful script for this sort of thing. You give it a pattern and it will find all rules where it behaves exactly like the original rule for a given number of generations (this version doesn't use minus signs). # Rule computation script for use with Golly. # Author: Nathaniel Johnston (nathan...

### Re: Binary slow salvos

Is this a proof of concept or is there a 16-glider collision somewhere that makes this binary slow salvo? If it's the former, it makes more sense to look for an example before attempting to show how it could construct universally.

The second pattern is basically an ordinary rule 90 replicator except that it moves. If you move each of the preblock units back 6 diagonals every 12 generations, you will see that it is fundamentally the same type of pattern.

The Sierpinski triangle is the history of the simplest replicator (such as the one in B2a/S), so naturally most puffers of replicators (such as the first pattern) make them (each row of replicators further behind the puffer shows the next layer of the triangle), as do replicating puffers (the replic...
