Re: 20-bit still life syntheses

there's no doubt a cleverer way to do the cleanup Reduced by one glider, with a partial self-cleanup at the end for style points: x = 171, y = 103, rule = B3/S23 61bo$60bo$60b3o9$2bo$obo$b2o20$166bo$39bo127bo$37b2o126b3o$38b2o129b2o $28bo140b2o$22bobo2bo$23b2o2b3o$23bo3$32bo115bo$32bobo111b3o$32b2o...

No offense, but this is why you need to start labeling your patterns when you originally post them. Otherwise people are likely to ignore them as they have no idea what the significance is supposed to be.

It thinks 6+2*sqrt(2) is smaller than 8 but bigger than 10.
MediaWiki does not know that 6+2*sqrt(2) is supposed to be a number, and thus interprets the whole column as plaintext.

So I've just happened to only submit syntheses for objects that Catagolue has unrelated bugs with? I suppose so. Unfortunately, the Catagolue submission box, while extremely useful, is still quite rudimentary, and molding syntheses into a form that Catagolue will actually accept does often take con...

Another examples include that I managed to reduce the glider cost for the period-184 glider gun by synthesizing one of the fishhooks with the two-glider synthesis and a kickback reaction instead of the four-glider pond-based mechanism, Catagolue doesn't support linear growth syntheses at this time....

Unfortunately, I can't submit glider syntheses to Catagolue.
What exactly do you mean by this? Are you unable to access the site itself, or does it just give an error when submitting synths?

Re: Still Life Synthesis Thread

This reduces the glider cost of a clean BTS to ten. Side note: I'd suggest that you start posting syntheses in incremental form rather than continuous form. Not only does this make them easier for other users to work with, it's also a lot easier to convert an incremental to a continuous rather than...
