Re: signal wireworld

So you're saying I could make a wireworld capable of modifying the very wires it goes on? That would be fun to make! And if I do it right, it could allow for potentially infinite computation! I'll set to working on a construction standard. Also, I think that someone should database all the known use...

Re: signal wireworld

Re: Golly rules - alternate games - please help!

part 2: When you use symmetries, things get complicated, because just putting in 2 cells will only count for 2 adjacent cells, not a total of 2, so you have to go through all positions like so: 0- 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,2 1- 0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,2 2- 0,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,2 0,1,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,2 0,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,0...

Re: B017/S01

Unfortunately, though, then the inverted patterns would always look like the odd generations, while the regular would be even. Inverted patterns have almost no use, but It would still make editing them very difficult.

Re: B017/S01

actually, the bottom one can be extended by bringing the rocks farther apart. Some distances don't work, but 4 and 8+ all work.
Adding an extra rock makes it one way, obviously, but I like the reflector it makes:
