Possibly a discovery

Post by melwin22 » September 9th, 2017, 5:46 am

I've been searching internet for specific rule: B3678/S135678, and i didn't found really any results. It's an interesting rule (in my opinion) and contains a lot of oscillators, still lifes and other stuff. A bit similar to Day&Night, but not very much. Has nobody discovered it yet?

Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of CA!

Pretty much every totalistic rule has been "discovered". According to David Eppstein's Glider Database, there are 10 gliders in this rule.

One of the main tools we use is called apgsearch, which runs random 16 x 16 soups and gets the results:

Code: Select all

x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3678/S135678
This rule is not very apgsearch-able, since most soups make giant oscillators.

Code: Select all

x = 17, y = 10, rule = B3/S23
