Re: Golly suggestions

I'd be surprised if this hasn't been suggested so far, as it's exceedingly simple: having adjustable weights for each state when calculating population. Even a simple on/off checkbox for each state would be useful for many purposes! (This could probably be modeled after the Set Layer Colors dialog b...

Re: Gun Discussion Thread

Close to a p102 gun; we just need to delete the block. If one of the unices can replaced with a custom p6 sparker, it will work, and the bounding box will be 49×48 = 2352, much better than the current 3776. There are several spark locations that work that can delete the block, and fortunately, the ...

P6 domino sparker:

Code: Select all

RLE
The active region in the sparker appears to be a P-spark and a 6-line (and a supporting spark-coil type object).
...That's even more impressive than the meatball! (at least in terms of clearance)
