Very funny transparent block reaction:

That leads to this possibility (see gen. 51):

Code: Select all

``````x = 12, y = 18, rule = DeadlyEnemies
3.2B\$3.2B6\$.2B7.2B\$.2B7.2B3\$3A5.2B\$2.A5.2B\$3A3\$.2B\$.2B!
#C [[ZOOM 5.3 STOP 51]]``````

Code: Select all

``````x = 10, y = 11, rule = DeadlyEnemies
8.2B\$8.2B3\$3A\$2.A4.3B\$3A3\$8.2B\$8.2B!

Century eater with potential for catalysis:

As you might expect, a DeadlyEnemies other-color block's ability to eat a glider was noticed very early on.

A small request: especially for custom rule-table rules that can't be run by LifeViewer, could everyone maybe get more in the habit of describing the reactions they're posting?

Simple labels like "block + other-color LWSS = boat" and "beehive + other-color LWSS = glider" would let people decide whether it would be interesting to copy/paste/run the pattern or not.
