Re: Reversible Wireless World

Is there some special term for (two-state) CA with transition rule defined only by three values: state of cell, sum of states of four side cells and sum of states of four corner cells? Alexander, George Maydwell, who is an inactive member of this forum, uses these ideas in his CA software here: htt...

Re: Reversible Wireless World

Shura, Thank you for the new version of step. I've implemented it in the 7 state program. I've also added a new control in both the 4 state and 7 state programs. This control reverses patterns with the V key. The new versions can be downloaded here: http://bprentice.webenet.net/Java%20Square%20Cell/...

I had not checked that situation. I now agree that my extension to your program is not reversible. Thank you for pointing that out Shura.

Dave,

In your archive MilhinSA.v3c.Golly2.5.zip there is a file MilhinSA2.rule. What is that? It does not seem to be an alternative to MilhinSA.rule.

That is a pity since several of the better rules featured here still cannot be run on Golly and we may have been deprived of enjoying your excellent patterns.
