### The Life Universe

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

'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 4b3o$6bo$o3b3o$2o$bo!

x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

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

2obo$2o! 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.

No adding dots fricking 1000 cells away from the pattern. This post was brought to you by the letter D, for dishes that Andrew J. Wade won't do. (Also Daniel, which happens to be me.)

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?
