How about supporting Larger than Life rules with half-integer ranges? These would be a bit like range extensions of isotropic Margolus rules, since the neighbourhood would change between for example this and this:

Code: Select all

x = 15, y = 5, rule = bs012345678History
4D$4D7.4D$2DAD7.DA2D$4D7.4D$11.4D!

The QuickLife algorithm is theoretically capable of supporting all 2-state p2 alternating rules. Maybe support for that could be added.
I like making rules
