Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Crossposting this from the wiki: GUYTU6J has discovered that there are several rules that are currently stored on the wiki as ruletables but which can be converted into either isotropic or MAP LifeViewer aliases.

How did they find Hertz in 1970? There's absolutely no available search programs at that time.
Manual experimentation. Just make an O shape with a 3x4 inside, place a dot inside it in the right spot, and stabilize the edges as you would normally and voila, Hertz oscillator.

Re: Suggested LifeWiki edits

Yeah, but the problem is "and thus not counted". If Unix on snacker is known by 1976, how is 117P18 "the first period 18 oscillator to be found"? Pretty much because previous people decades ago decided that LCM oscillators don't really count. For example, Bill Gosper alluded to the existence of an ...

It's also possible to use code from the apgsearch 1.x Python script to perform a local census on some random huge pattern that you've created and run on your system, without uploading to Catagolue. But that takes a little rewriting, I think, unless someone can point to where the census code has bee...

Re: Catagolue Oddities

For some reason, higher symmetry soups in hex rules only show the C1 part: https://catagolue.appspot.com/hashsoup/D12/l_uTd2fikB847J213403/b2s34h Known issue ; Catagolue just doesn't know yet how to convert them to the correct symmetry. You'll need to use lifelib for now to retrieve these soups.

There's a button on the posting page for this now too (just like for the viewer and wiki tags).
Awesome! Only issue is by default it leads to the "no rule specified" page; is there an option to default the rule parameter to b3s23?
