New Circuit Rule

I have just come up with a 17-state Von-Neumann neighborhood rule which can be used to make digital logic circuits. Ruletable here (Save as CircuitRule.table): # Circuit Rule # # States correspond to: # # Direction # N E S W # Empty 0 0 0 0 # Datacell 1 1 1 1 1 # Datacell 2 2 2 2 2 # Buffer 3 4 5 6 ...

Re: Glider controll?

There is a reaction involving a boat and a glider, where the boat is destroyed cleanly and the glider is reflected 90 degrees.

Herschel-based Quadratic Growth Pattern

It works using a Herschel track puffer, and a fixed endpoint made up of two guns synthesizing a pi-heptomino, which is then converted to a Herschel and let through the puffed track. The gliders from the Herschels are not destroyed by eaters, so waves of gliders come out of the track. :shock: That wa...
