Wickstretcher partial result

Post by Jason Summers » January 8th, 2013, 7:01 pm

I tried to complete a c/4 diagonal wickstretcher, and found what I thought was a breakthrough, but I just can't make it work. Can anyone help finish it?

Code: Select all

x = 72, y = 81, rule = B3/S23

Breakthrough indeed! This was surprisingly easy to find:

Code: Select all

x = 79, y = 79, rule = B3/S23

Edit: I would really like to see a c/5 diagonal wickstretcher that stretches one of these period-2 wicks:
