Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries

This pattern lasts 16 generations before leaving a 3xn bounding box: x = 3, y = 8, rule = LifeHistory .2A$2A2$2.A$.A$A.A$A$.A! Are there any known patterns that stay in a 3xn box longer, that eventually leave it? I don't know, but you might be able to make one based on this: x = 90, y = 3, rule = B...

Re: apgsearch - haul requests

I'd very much appreciate a search of B3-y4cj/S23-ck4c8. It's Life-like and has these two small patterns that become oscillators:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-y4cj/S23-ck4c8
b3o$o2bo$3bo!

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3-y4cj/S23-ck4c8

Re: Interacting with LoM

Well, it is if there's any way to stop it destroying the still life (there sold easily be, bit I'm not in a position to have a look at the moment).

Very cool!

Is there any known way to extract a signal from a 5c/9?

Re: Miscellaneous Discoveries in Other Cellular Automata

Question: can 2 copies of this oscillator:

be used to create a glider gun? I've had no success searching manually, but it looks very possible.

In fact it's still explosive, if just barely, without symmetry.

Just casually browsing through them, I guess it's not that surprising that most of them are a bit unlikely... but one of the more promising might be this: (block added by me to delete a TL)
