most gliders (game)

Post by tommyaweosme » April 21st, 2024, 2:00 pm

what small pattern makes the most gliders?

record: hotdogpi's pattern: 7.5

rules:
1. no glider guns/rakes/glider-puffers
2. if you just put a bunch of gliders you will get a score of (wait for it) one

how i decide score:
(number of gliders created)/((initial population)/5)

examples:
r-pentomino: 5
b-heptomino: ~1.43
herschel: ~1.43
glider: 1
wing: ~0.63
pi: 0
century: 0
diehard: 0

I have tought the GPSE ... this infinite score solution is disallowed as well?
Anyways RCT15 easily says any constant is reachable ... and it neednot be rake nor gun :).
