I tried making a rule table:

Code: Select all

@RULE AfterlifeSeeds

https://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=105407#p105407

@TABLE
n_states:4
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:permute

var a={0,2}
var b={0,1}
var c={1,3}
var d={2,3}
var e={0,1,2,3}

0,1,1,2,2,2,a,a,a,1
0,1,1,2,0,0,0,0,0,1
0,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1
0,2,2,1,1,1,b,b,b,2

2,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,1

3,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,0
But it didn't work. I think the problem is that with a string like 2,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,1 (var e={0,1,2,3}) it works only if all the e's are the same. I want a cell to go to the other universe regardless of its surroundings (if the cell on the other side is empty). Is there any way to do this? I couldn't find any thread on rule tables. There is this website:
https://github.com/gollygang/ruletabler ... /TheFormat
but the format I see in the rule tables before is different.

Yes.
solve the problem by
e1 = {0,1,2,3}
e2 = {...
...
1,e1,e2,e3,e4,e5,e6,e7,e8,0

Edit:uh, you probably forgot to kill the cells.

I was thinking something like that where I have multiple variables. Also, I didn't forget to kill them, they were supposed to go to the other universe.

Edit: It's working now. Soups are actually much less chaotic now. except when you put a bunch of state-3 cells and then let it grow (and then put a state-1 or 2 cell in there).

Yes, I mean even according to the technical definition of chaotic which is "a system which changes a lot with very similar starting conditions" it is less chaotic. Changing the edges of a pattern should affect it more though because that's where most of the action happens. I think it's because the cells don't die permanently and make it more dense and that prevents b2 from happening. State 3 behaves just like normal Seeds so that's still chaotic. As I mentioned before, placing a state-1 or 2 cell in a state-3 explosion "feeds" it with chaos so that still behaves unpredictably.

I'd like to request a rule where there are two (not necessarily CGoL) universes where if there's a live cell in the same location in the other universe, it counts towards the number of live neighbours. I think it should be called TwoLayer[insert rule name].

The TwoLayer definition seems rather confusing to me, I'll explain later. Apart from that, there's only two requests, both of which requires modifying a OTRTR to a NTRTR, which is non-trivial without the use of NUTSHELL.

I had written that one a while ago when I was relatively new here. Basically any cell B in the same position as any cell A in the other layer will be included in the neighbour count of cell A.

Thanks! For some reason it doesn't work in Golly. This is why I wanted it by the way:

I have an idea for one similar to wireworld: If a dead cell is touching two heads, the dead cell becomes a wire. Other then that, it works the same as wireworld. Alternative idea: If a dead cell is touching 3 heads, the dead cell will become a wire. Otherwise, the same as wireworld.

Either of these would be just a few lines added to the current WireWorld.rule. There are only six transitions defined in WireWorld, using 14 helper variables:

Code: Select all

var a={0,1,2,3}
var b={0,1,2,3}
var c={0,1,2,3}
var d={0,1,2,3}
var e={0,1,2,3}
var f={0,1,2,3}
var g={0,1,2,3}
var h={0,1,2,3}
var i={0,2,3}
var j={0,2,3}
var k={0,2,3}
var l={0,2,3}
var m={0,2,3}
var n={0,2,3}
1,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,2
2,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,3
3,i,j,k,l,m,n,a,1,1
3,i,j,k,l,m,1,n,1,1
3,i,j,k,l,1,m,n,1,1
3,i,j,k,1,l,m,n,1,1
The "a" through "h" variables match any cell, and the "i" through "n" variables basically mean "anything but a head". We can use those for the new rule lines,.

The rule's symmetry is "rotate8", so you have to list out all the ways that two or three heads can surround a dead cell. I think that would be something like this, for the two-head option.

Code: Select all

0,a,b,i,j,k,l,m,n,1
0,a,i,b,j,k,l,m,n,1
0,a,i,j,b,k,l,m,n,1
0,a,i,j,k,b,l,m,n,1
(and all of the rest of the rule lines stay the same.)

Besides that weird detail about the symmetry being "rotate8" instead of "permute", this is a very simple adjustment to the base WireWorld rule. Give it a try and see if it works. You can write a similar but somewhat longer list of matching patterns for three-head wiremaking.

One-dimensional rule request time. Things are gonna get weird.

So it's known that replicators exist for Pascal triangle modulos 3 and 5:

There also are replicators which follow a sort of 4 analogue of this sequence:

However, Pascal's triangle of non-prime modulos do not produce results as clean as this:

So what 1D rule corresponds to the "4 triangle" replicator posted above?

I was thinking of a CA where all reactions require energy cells to cause them. Any spaceship or oscillator would need some energy cells to work. There could be photosynthetic cells that create an energy cell if there are 7 or 8 photosynthetic cells around an empty space. "Carnivorous" or animal cells or heterotrophic cells I guess are able to turn the photosynthetic cells into energy if they surround the photosynthetic cell with 3 of itself. Energy could also come into existence if the heterotrophic cells die of overpopulation and decompose. I don't even know if spaceships could be formed, but oscillators could be formed. The "plant" cells could have the rule B34/S12 and the "animal" cells could have B3/S23.
Energy would basically be used for growth so whatever kind of cell that the energy cell is touching, is what the energy cell turns into.

Sorry for the long and complicated request I just didn't quite know how to approach making something like this.

So how would energy be used exactly? For birth? For survival? You're talking about them decomposing and stuff. It's certainly an interesting idea, but you have to be more precise.

Energy would be used for birth. I said that energy would turn into the cell adjacent to it. If there are two different kinds next to the energy cell, it favors the animal cell and the animal cells would turn the plant into energy and the energy into itself.

Sorry for the long and complicated request I just didn't quite know how to approach making something like this.
I think the photosynthetic cells should be able to hold energy until they reproduce. After they reproduce, which should require all three photosynthetic cells to have energy, they would not have energy for one generation. I don't like there being free-standing energy cells. I don't know which photosynthesizing cells animals should eat though.

I was thinking of a CA where all reactions require energy cells to cause them. Any spaceship or oscillator would need some energy cells to work. There could be photosynthetic cells that create an energy cell if there are 7 or 8 photosynthetic cells around an empty space. "Carnivorous" or animal cells or heterotrophic cells I guess are able to turn the photosynthetic cells into energy if they surround the photosynthetic cell with 3 of itself. Energy could also come into existence if the heterotrophic cells die of overpopulation and decompose. I don't even know if spaceships could be formed, but oscillators could be formed. The "plant" cells could have the rule B34/S12 and the "animal" cells could have B3/S23.
Energy would basically be used for growth so whatever kind of cell that the energy cell is touching, is what the energy cell turns into.

Maybe we should just have Conway's Life, but cells need energy to reproduce like in real life. I was thinking we could approach this by requiring at least one cell of the 3 needed for birth to be "charged" represented by a different state. So, every pattern is a still life unless there's energy. Energy could come into existence by having "charged" cells be born by born by the B3, or by cells dying and turning into usable energy. And cells touching this usable energy then become "charged". So there would be 3 states and dead state. Life cell, "Charged" Life cell, and Energy.
