...so we can have spaceships that travel at the speed of 50c in Golly?

I found a 46C spaceship, but it can't be made into a a 50C spaceship because this design only works for speeds that are one less than primes.

Code: Select all

`#CXRLE Pos=0,0`

x = 139, y = 184, rule = R46,C3,M1,S8649..8649,B47..47,NM:T2000,2000

EDIT: When I was posting this, I found that unless the extended RLE gives the pattern's coordinates, LifeViewer places the pattern in the upper left of the torus but Golly places it in the middle. This isn't a problem for tori, but the same thing also happens on a bounded grid, which causes some patterns to run differently. Fortunately this can be avoided by explicitly specifying the coordinates.
