I thought DryLife was very interesting, so I made a thread about it.

Post any stuff you've found in DryLife, if you can.

http://imgur.com/8YwKexI - Indefinetly growing pattern. It's creating somewhat complex stuff, like boats with tails and pulsars.

In this rule, it seems that patterns rarely stabilize at all.

LWSS's are an impossiblity, and the only spaceships I've seen are gliders and a thing made out of 2 r-pentominoes.

I am riveted by really, really long-lasting methuselahs.

Trying to seach for them in golly by placing random blocks and hoping for the best, and also by modding existing ones.

Don't miss out on reading this already existing thread: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=490 If you're interested in DryLife, it makes for very exciting reading! Maybe seeing what's already been done will help someone build something new.

Code: Select all

```
x = 35, y = 30, rule = B37/S23

Bored of using the Moore neighbourhood for everything? Introducing the Range-2 von Neumann isotropic non-totalistic rulespace!

Well, it is the usual unit cell construction in DryLife and relative rules, but counts I hope:

So it is Turing-complete, based a trick on right-angle kickback reactions on inverted sparse Glider stream signals.
