Era of the Travelling Glider

Post by Alexander Yu » August 24th, 2021, 6:57 pm

There will be a glider, and we can feel free to do anything with it as it passes down the grid.
rules:
You must begin and end with a glider pointing southwest.
Stories are allowed.
You may transform the glider in any way (via Hershel or inverted signal or whatever), just make sure it comes out as a glider in the end.
Do not make it super long.
Try not to take two turns in a row unless nobody else is playing.
Extra gliders shouldn't be released

Code: Select all

x = 27, y = 44, rule = B3/S23

I wanted to add a story to it, but what would everybody say if I said that this glider destroys villages?

EDIT: (8/25/21)
Still nothing? :C

EDIT: (5/26/21)
Nobody has responded in a while, so I'll just continue:

Code: Select all

x = 34, y = 31, rule = B3/S23

I have reduced the glider cost of quadratic growth to eight and probably to seven. Looking for conduits...

we can do that!
Edit: actually, now that i think about it, it is going to be pretty hard to add it if spaceships and oscillators are involved...
