It has been packaged with any of the last several versions of Golly. Not that there's very much to it, once the font was added to Golly's glife module --

all.display ("Eric Angelini integer glider gun")
The "almost" in the original comments is no longer necessary -- chris_c has effectively proved by construction that it's impossible to design a fleet of gliders so closely spaced that it can't be constructed by an appropriate Eric Angelini Life integer pattern. In fact, any possible fleet of gliders, closely spaced or not, or any other glider-constructible pattern including puffers and spaceships and so on, can be represented by an infinite number of different Life-integer patterns.

It's probably better to just run the above script from where it's already placed, Golly's /Scripts/Python/ folder. That way Golly will know where to find the glife module. Otherwise you tend to get mysterious errors unless you've already run a from glife.text import * command since restarting Golly.

... I should probably investigate how to work around that little glife reference problem -- anyone have any good suggestions?

Perhaps loading glife (or making glife accessible) when starting Golly, namely via golly-start.py? I'm not sure if it is possible, though.
Edit: Perhaps one can temporarily add glife to Python's module searching path.
Best wishes to you, Scorbie

My own little username with my font (5 high, I abbreviated the username):

Now with the general font:

Code: Select all

x = 19, y = 7

By far the longest RLE I've ever typed. *whew*

* R-pentomino forms at generation 72.
* Pi heptomino sequences start at generation 201 and 630.
* A toad forms at generation 783 but is murdered at generation 803.

Do you copy using Golly? Hit Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, and when you need to paste, Ctrl+V

Warning: If you are running OSX10.11, you need to use Golly 2.8b2 instead. Otherwise it will run way too fast. (Coincidentally, I'm on 10.11 and I have 2.7b2 so I'm highly vulnerable to the bug, but I can't be bothered to update.) (Also 100th post! Yay!)

Going back on topic, somebody should make a search program that searches for the smallest letter (/numbers if you want) predecessor for rare objects like the switch engines.
