### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

For me, the first pattern evolves into an r-pentomino after 2 generations, as it should. I don't think KILLGLIDERS is supposed to kill a glider that's about to interact with a spark.cgoler2 wrote: ↑June 10th, 2021, 2:17 pmWhy doesbecomeCode: Select all

### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

I think, based on my observations, it only kills a glider that doesn't interact with anything for so many generations after the shape forms.

### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

I think it actually deletes them when they leave the influence of the bounding diamond of the rest of the pattern. Consider, for example, this pattern, where the gliders take different lengths of time to be deleted:ihatecorderships wrote: ↑June 11th, 2021, 12:35 amI think, based on my observations, it only kills a glider that doesn't interact with anything for so many generations after the shape forms.

### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

When you switch on

**[[ KILLGLIDERS ]]**each glider becomes a candidate for deletion when it is at the bounding box of the pattern and escaping. It won't then be killed until the diagonal is clear. From the original soup above at T=333 you can see the southern most glider (marked in yellow) is at the south boundary of the bounding box and escaping. However its diagonal is not clear because of the south moving LWSS on the left (also marked in yellow).Code: Select all

### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

I’m getting the Slow Mo Blue Box again (hello from an iPad), and I think I have a reliable method of recreating it:

1) Tap the edge of the viewer window

2) ???

3) Profit

I

*think*what’s happening is that the tap is causing Safari to try and select the viewer canvas, leading to a blue outline. As for why Slow Mo Blue Box Syndrome slows the viewer to a crawl, um,Each day is a hidden opportunity, a frozen waterfall that's waiting to be realised, and one that I'll probably be ignoring

### Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

I have no idea if this is related to what you're referring to, but ever since I joined this forum, and probably before, the pattern runs at about 60% speed whenever it's in focus, no matter what. It feels like it's probably intended (the speed box turns red, and people would have noticed by now), but I have no idea why.

In addition, once a glider escapes and is destroyed by the outer bounding box limit, it will never run at 60× again for that session (it seems to be stuck at 45 or so for simple patterns, but not a constant number), even if you go back to generation 0 and reset everything.
