The Life Universe

Post by Hdjensofjfnen » January 8th, 2017, 11:30 pm

Here is a small minigame.

On each post, we can place a cell anywhere we want.
You cannot post twice in a row.
Between posts we will advance 1 generation.
The goal? Get as high of a population as possible. If a pattern dies we will restart with the starter.

The starter:

Code: Select all

x = 2, y = 2, rule = B3/S23
2o$2o!
"A man said to the universe:
'Sir, I exist!'
'However,' replied the universe,
'The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.'" -Stephen Crane

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i

Gen 1:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 2, rule = B3/S23
2obo$2o!
x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

$$x_1=\eta x$$
$$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$
$$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$
$$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$

Taking A for awesome's entry since it got in first by one minute --

Seems like it would be nice to see the before and after stages of the pattern. Here are generations 0 and 1, and a candidate Gen 2:

Code: Select all

x = 37, y = 7, rule = LifeHistory
9.D16.D$10.D16.D6.A$2A.C7.D4.3A.E7.D4.A.2A$2A5.6D3.3A5.6D3.A.2A$11.D
16.D5.A$10.D16.D$9.D16.D!

A rule should be added where dots have to directly affect the pattern. No adding dots fricking 1000 cells away from the pattern.

You literally just posted my pattern. Did you even read the initial post?

Also, did you notice that I said methoDRCally searched the cell space?
