How about a downstream synthes[i/e]s report for each GoL object? For example, a button on the "glider synthesis" section of the object that returns a list of apgcodes, glider count increments in next step, and whether or not this step is in the optimal route, of immediate synthetic descendants. This will be useful to understand how many benefits a reduction have.

Code: Select all

x = 60, y = 29, rule = B2-a/S12

A suggestion to completely disable animated previews of periodic objects in apgcode-prefix listings, so that only static images of phases are shown in lists (regardless of period/size of objects).

For example, these pages significantly lag my browser: b2n3s23-q/C1/xp30, b2n3s23-q/C1/xp6. Sometimes a long listing of animated previews causes the page to freeze, so that I have to close and reopen the browser tab.

It seems also that the logic behind animated previews is not always consistent. The following two pages behave differently with respect to animations of periodic objects: xq45 displays static image of a phase; xq57 displays animation.

Would it be possible to implement INT generations support for the RLE identification box on Catagolue? I have several patterns which I would like to find some sample soups for, and RLE identification would be very useful.

Is there a way to list all of the lifelike censuses with a particular symmetry, such as C1? If not, can one be provided?

I'm looking for a list of rules with the number of objects for each, which can be sorted by either rulestring or number of objects.

Alternative: is there a way to show an extended version of the "Most Popular" list on the Census page? If not, can that be provided?

For the syntheses page, would it be possible to italicise object groups whose contents consist solely of pseudo-objects, such as xp354?

I have encountered this problem myself, but I think a better solution would be to also be able to specify the number of patterns you would like to show, or (being that each cell is a html element) the number of cells to display, such that pages of the list can be of variable length, for people who would like only to review all objects in a list by seeing them in motion. Also, to allow sorting by different characteristics like population and volatility would be nice.
(also, add all-soups censuses to other rules and bring back the gap/skew symmetries into the official ones so that we can have the skewed pre-pulsar shuttle in all-soups :-)
That concludes my post (I hope you liked it)
