### Re: Golly scripts

Please test this script!

@dvgrn should give this pattern converter script a name due to the lack of ideas - and also further improvements to be planned like generalized hexasymm 4-state rulespace/generator for corresponding OT life-like rules etc:

Code: Select all

``````#!/usr/bin/python

# Pattern converter script for use with Golly.
# Author: Peter, NASZVADI (), June 2020.
# BUGGY! Do NOT use this script!

# Converts B3/S23 patterns to equivalent hexasymmcgol ones.

import golly as g

currentcellsunsorted = g.getcells(g.getrect())
currentcells = zip(currentcellsunsorted[::2], currentcellsunsorted[1::2])
newcells = {}

if not currentcells:
g.show('No alive cells. Aborting script.')
elif g.getrule().lower() not in ['b3/s23', 'life', 'b3_s23']:
g.show('Aborting script - not a CGoL rule: ' + g.getrule())
else:
for i in currentcells:
g.setcell(i[0], i[1], 0)
g.setrule('hexasymmcgol')
firstrow = min(currentcellsunsorted[::2])
for i in currentcells:
xnew = i[0] + i[1] - firstrow
inew = (xnew // 2, i[1])
if inew in newcells:
newcells[inew] = 3
else:
newcells[inew] = 2 - xnew % 2
for i in newcells:
g.setcell(i[0], i[1], newcells[i])
``````
Update #1:
The above script probably converts badly part of patterns belong to negative quarter-space, an RC2 version is here:

Code: Select all

``````#!/usr/bin/python

# Pattern converter script for use with Golly.
# Author: Peter, NASZVADI (), June 2020.

# Converts B3/S23 patterns to equivalent hexasymmcgol ones.

import golly as g

currentcellsunsorted = g.getcells(g.getrect())
currentcells = zip(currentcellsunsorted[::2], currentcellsunsorted[1::2])
newcells = {}

if not currentcells:
g.show('No alive cells. Aborting script.')
elif g.getrule().lower() not in ['b3/s23', 'life', 'b3_s23']:
g.show('Aborting script - not a CGoL rule: ' + g.getrule())
else:
for i in currentcells:
g.setcell(i[0], i[1], 0)
g.setrule('hexasymmcgol')
firstrow = min(currentcellsunsorted[::2])
for i in currentcells:
xnew = i[0] + i[1] - firstrow
inew = ((xnew - (xnew % 2)) // 2, i[1])
if inew in newcells:
newcells[inew] = 3
else:
newcells[inew] = 2 - xnew % 2
for i in newcells:
g.setcell(i[0], i[1], newcells[i])

### Re: Golly scripts

A relatively simple Life-to-SkewLife converter:

Code: Select all

``````"""
skew.py, by Ian07

Returns the current pattern as a pattern in SkewLife (i.e. the LifeViewer rule R2,C2,S2-3,B3,N@22a544, specifically rotated 45 degrees clockwise from the original) in the clipboard.

Probably won't work with showinviewer.lua for the moment, since Golly itself currently doesn't support custom neighborhoods.

Bugs:
-Copying doesn't appear to work consistently, and has been temporarily disabled
"""

import golly as g

cells = g.getcells(g.getrect())
g.new("output")
# Affine transformation: each orthogonal movement is mapped to a diagonal movement
g.putcells(cells, 0, 0, 1, -1, 1, 1)

# Change the rule
"""
g.select(g.getrect())
g.copy()
clip = g.getclipstr().replace("B3/S23", "R2,C2,S2-3,B3,N@22a544")
g.setclipstr(clip)
