This rather stable puffer front-end forms and quickly escapes the rest of the chaos:vyznev wrote:...if you start with a random seed like, say, the slightly tweaked "glider" below and let it run long enough (in this case, about 3000 generations), something curious happens to the expanding ball of chaos.

Indeed. The same thing happens e.g. in the totalistic von Neumann rule B04/S1V:BlinkerSpawn wrote:This rather stable puffer front-end forms and quickly escapes the rest of the chaos:Since this rule is so chaotic, however, the "ball" and the puffer trail are permanently stuck together resulting in an unusual shape.Code: Select all

How about "rocket"? Real-life rockets produce seemingly-random trails of smoke and travel a variety of distances before stopping.vyznev wrote:It just seems like there ought to be a distinct term for these things.

I would love if that became the accepted name, it fits well.Gamedziner wrote:rocket
Rocket usually refers to patterns that look like spaceships but die down, it was first used with Day&Night.Gamedziner wrote:How about "rocket"? Real-life rockets produce seemingly-random trails of smoke and travel a variety of distances before stopping.

I would think so. The dot is a spark that reappears immediately only because the ship moves at c.Hdjensofjfnen wrote:Does this count?Code: Select all

No. The ship must share a phase with a phase of the glider with exactness. Extra dots are not welcome.Hdjensofjfnen wrote:Does this count?Code: Select all
