Re: Pattern of the Year 2016 (Entries)

What about the synthesis of 30P4H2V0.4 ? It was mentioned in the 2015 pattern-of-the-year list, but technically was only completed in 2016. It's an impressive-looking example of Kazyan-style synthesis, and unlike last year we don't have a lot of other new spaceship recipes to compete with it (do we...

Pattern of the Year 2016 (Entries)

Even though most people agree that 2016 was a terrible year overall , it was certainly quite a good year for the Game of Life. Many discoveries were made, and it is only logical to select the coolest one of them by organizing yet another Pattern of the Year competition. As usual, we start by compili...

It is quite a non-trivial task, and I will not volunteer to do it. If someone wants to give it a try, I can publish Delphi source code.

Spaceships are impossible in this rule, since no pattern can grow out of its bounding diamond.

Re: new oscillator

Instead of posting screenshots, please do the following: Select the entire pattern in Golly. Copy it. Go to the forums. Paste. Select the code you pasted. Press "Code" above the editor. You should get something like this: x = 16, y = 5, rule = B3/S23 2b2o3b2o3b2o$bo2bobo2bobo2bo$obobob4obobobo$bo2bo...

#C Stabilizes in 2 generations x = 4, y = 1, rule = B3/S23 4o! I think the rules should be more specific. Firstly, limit the bounding box to 20x20 or something. Otherwise one could post a long diagonal line. Limiting the number of cells is not an option, since one could post a glider hitting a fara...

Text like that probably comes from a Markov chain trained on other posts on the forum. Markov chains rarely produce full grammatically correct sentences, so this is one way to recognise them.

Gamedziner, you surely wrote a great message, but I think spambots do not deserve that much attention.
