I wrote a small script to extend the list of counterfeit gliders. It searches for gliders moving in several directions.
The result is attached as a zip file, containing several rle's. The output file have the names cfg_A_B_C_D.rle where
A = 0 or 1 for the two different glider pattern (0=bo$2bo$3o!, 1=obo$b2o$bo!).
B = period of the ship
C = ymove (translation in y-direction)
D = xmove (translation in x-direction)
For example cfg_1_15_6_-2.rle contains this ship:
Code: Select all
x = 3, y = 3, rule = B2cei3eijny4acjwz5eijy6-en7e/S2-ei3aejq4aceijwy5cery6ak7e
Note that it also contains oscillators (if C=D=0) and the ships do not necessarily have full periods. Moreover, the rulespace is not the minimal one, so many rule appear to be exploding, but often there are stable alternatives available.
There are 1320 files in the zip. So we should have more than 1000 counterfeit gliders.
