Re: B357/S23568/C4

Interesting...
I found the origin of that common ship:

x = 4, y = 26, rule = 23568/357/4
.2A$.2A$.2A9$.2A$.3A$.2A10$2.A$2A$2.A!

the first is a common short methuselah, the second is the same, but with symmetry blocked, and the third is a precursor

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries

A lightspeed ship, rake, or puffer in a cylindrical universe can be made simply by making a vertical line and moving around a few of the pixels. I believe this is the smallest possible one: x = 2, y = 2, rule = B3/S23:T0,2 o$2o! other, larger ones can be made by moving pixels in a way that prevents ...

Re: Bounding box

Well, I think that the problem can be solved using a CA. I think a CA in which all cells put out orthagonal-moving cells that leave a trail, and then the trails would "solidify" when it hit another trail or solid structure, and destroy unnecessary material around it. When it was all done, a special ...

Re: Bounding box

Well, it does make it so that diagonal patterns don't end up with extra junk in them...I'm starting to like the polyomino setup, though, even though it may be difficult to calculate in larger patterns.

Re: Bounding box

I'll be more specific to clear things up here, because I'm not sure we're all on the same page... If every cell were represented by a point in the very center of it, this would be the smallest possible equal-angular octagon, and it would be aligned with the grid so the top and bottom sides are flat ...

Bounding box

Well, I've been thinking about the theory of lightspeed and such, and I think it's about time we found a new standard better than "bounding box".

Look at this at 4x or higher speed and it really slows down towards the end.

Re: Thread in a Different Geometry

Well, most every pattern in any looping universe could be considered an agar or a wick when copied in a grid in a non-looping one, so make sure that you're not posting a known one of those, or if it isn't known, make clear what kind of pattern it is.
