Fix pattern image, page in general

I'm not up to it right at the moment, but the pattern "buckaroo" is really just the shuttle without the glider and so the glider shouldn't be in the pattern image itself. Some notes and auxiliary images can be made on the page stating/showing that it can reflect gliders though. Nathaniel 21:26, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Weeell... it's like I fixed it! And it's not wrong or anything. Also I realised a minute too late that I basically uploaded a duplicate image (or rather a slightly up-sized version of the original one). Elithrion 22:58, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Also, the page could really go with an animation showing the reflection. I still have the file from my "Queen bee shuttle" one, so I could probably save a little bit of time that way. Not today, though, because big animations are still annoying. Elithrion 23:10, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I think that it would be better if the oscillator template was used. The buckaroo is always an oscillator, but it is a reflector only under certain conditions.--Scot Ellison 12:04, 6 July 2011 (CDT)

180-degree reflector

Here is a variant that reflects the glider 180 degrees (probably not very useful because the pentadecathlon can do the same).

x = 23, y = 15, rule = B3/S23
