#C Two remarkably fast spaceships in a 2-state rule. The left is 200c/4 orthogonal,

#O Connor Steppie, 17 November 2020
#C This rule has the remarkable property of containing boringly chaotic explosive
#C patterns from small starting conditions, which are unusually fragile and will
#C unravel and rapidly stabilise in response to tiny disturbances, unlike other
#C explosive rules.
#C In this demonstration, the object on the left explodes rapidly and
#C asymmetrically, until around 1200 generations in where it collided with a
#C tiny oscillator on the right. Upon collision, the explosion rapidly dissipates
#C beginning from the point of contact, eventually becoming stable ash at
#C generation 4630.
#C See chaos-boxes.rle and von-Neumann-merge.rle for similar behaviour in
#C in range-1 rules.

#O Kaarel (Toomet?), 22 May 2022
#C Two boxes of bound cells merge together in a von Neumann rule. The lower
#C big rectangle is the upper big rectangle shifted one generation forward.
#C We can see that for the upper example, the two rectangles merge seamlessly,
#C whereas for the bottom example, the internal structure is destroyed, leaving
#C massive gaps.
#C Similar structural collapses can be seen in the files crystal-chaos.rle and
#C chaos-boxes.rle.

I should hopefully have a MarBlocks folder proposal done relatively soon. Don't forget to include that updated Generations/LtL folder in the next build of Golly either... (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5498&start=25#p149987)

Also, is the novelty-cross.rle file from earlier in this thread eligible for inclusion, or not? It was proposed before Golly 4.2's release and doesn't appear to be in the pattern directory at sourceforge.

That'd be great, once we figure out when that will be. Probably there will be the usual "beta" build, then some length of time for testing, and then a last-minute b3s23osc update could go in just before the final release build.

Looks to me like I just missed novelty-cross.rle in the last scan for patterns to add.

Any hope of my getting a new-files-only ZIP file with all the suggestions that haven't already been added? The last-round ZIP file, including unchanged old versions of files plus new stuff, ended up keeping me confused for weeks -- I had to go through and triple-check everything, since I'd made competing changes sometimes. But new-files-only with each file in an appropriate subfolder would be a huge help.

If you'd prefer to add patterns this way I can arrange that, though I'll post the individual things here as well in the meantime.

There's still a few more things needing done before these are added to the official collection.

No it won't. Try adding a single pond above the existing ones at the correct spacing. It will create a few duoplets, blocks, and/or 4-cell spaceships along the way.

#C This is a comparison of two "MarBlocks" oscillator families

#C This pattern is identical to the previous file, but two rule
#C transitions have been changed to modify the behaviour of these
#C oscillators: now the cores will remain solid instead of instantly
#C dying out when they fill in. Note how the periods for each line
#C remain exactly the same despite this change, as the edge

#C A system for naming MarBlocks rules was proposed in 2018 by
#C conwaylife.com forums member 77topaz, with help from Dave
#C Greene, which would classify each rule using an octal system.
#C The rule emulated by this pattern would therefore be "M11",
#C and the previous example would be rule "M10".
