Extended pattern collection for Golly

Postby dvgrn » September 14th, 2017, 1:57 pm

The idea of an extended and/or heavily revised Golly pattern collection bubbled up again a week or two ago. It should probably get its own thread, to keep it from inevitably cluttering up the Golly Suggestions and Golly 3.0 threads.

Quick recap:

Andrew wrote:I quite like Apple Bottom's idea of providing an optional pattern collection in Golly's download page. This would be a zip file called something like More-Patterns-v1.zip. The version number would be incremented every time the collection is changed. (Or call it More-Patterns-Sep-2017.zip if you prefer a date rather than a version number.)

The zip file would expand to a *single* folder containing various subfolders (jslife, hensel, etc) and a ReadMe.html file with pointers, recommendations, credits, etc.
...
So who maintains the [extended] pattern collection and where should it be hosted? I'd rather not have it as part of Golly's repository, so probably best to create a new project on sourceforge or github where Dave and Matthias can haggle over what to include. :)

We can work up to a GitHub repo for this, if enough people make significant contributions -- along the lines of Sokwe's recent efforts, for example. But a new thread seems like the place to start.

As a starting point, let's assume that this extended pattern collection will end up in a More-Patterns folder at the same level as the Patterns folder -- via some more or less convenient download method (I have some sneaky ideas about that). Maybe there will be several "extended sub-collections", but in that case they'll all end up in folders inside the More-Patterns folder.

There are quite a few extensive pattern collections and toolkits and so forth out there, that most Golly users probably never see because they don't know what to try downloading. Maybe this could be a good way to increase visibility for some of these collections.

Thoughts, ideas, objections? Put them all here, please -- and not in the Golly 3.0 or Golly Suggestions threads!

If anything, I'm kind of surprised golly never came with a "smallest currently known oscillators of each period" pattern collection. Here's my crappy personal stamp collection of that description, that could possibly be refined a bit and put into the official patterns collection:

x = 2363, y = 1242, rule = B3/S23

On the topic of oscillator stamp collections, an update to good old DRH-oscillators might also be a good idea, keeping in mind the oscillators that have turned up since 2009 (such as Rich's p16 and honey thieves).

Re: Extended pattern collection for Golly

A good place for the pattern repository would be inside the existing GollyGang umbrella on github:

https://github.com/GollyGang

That's where the rule repository resides so it makes sense to have the pattern repository in the same place.

We can work up to a GitHub repo for this, if enough people make significant contributions -- along the lines of Sokwe's recent efforts, for example. But a new thread seems like the place to start.


That's a good idea.

I think any extended pattern collection will eventually have to figure out how to a) automate as much as possible, to make it easier for people to contribute and to avoid overloading the maintainers of said collection, but also how to b) ensure quality.

A git(hub) repo strikes a good balance there. Submitting patches (or better yet, pull requests) is fairly easy, and there's sophisticated tools to make the curator's job easier. (Shepherding contributors, coordinating distributed work, cherry-picking the good stuff etc. is git's entire raison d'être, after all.)

Having this live next to the rule repo under github.com/GollyGang, as Andrew suggests, seems quite natural to me, too.

I like it when more than two people agree on something, and nobody disagrees strongly enough to post anything.

So this thread is one possible collection point, and a place to "haggle over what should be included", as Andrew put it.

In point of fact I don't think there will be much need for haggling. It seems as if it will make sense to allow for many separate ZIP file downloads. Maybe there will be an option to download the whole extended collection one enormous archive file, assuming it doesn't get too large. Or maybe someone will put together a "curated" collection that's a subset of the full pattern repository, that will show up on request (somehow) under More-Patterns in Golly's root directory.

A larger collection of separate ZIP files will give people a place to put more specialized toolkits and search results and so on, that maybe most Golly users won't want to have taking up space on their system by default.

I've added a couple of individual files, and Prof. Emmanuel Sapin's collection of 15,000 alien guns, as an initial example issue on a new "supplemental-patterns" repository under the GollyGang umbrella.

Next step might be to get some kind of directory structure decided on for the actual repository. Files aren't supposed to have to stay hidden as Issue attachments forever -- that's just one quick easy way for people with minimal Git experience to send in contributions.

It's the same one, just backed up one tick -- in Golly 3.0's main collection, under Patterns/Non-Totalistic/rr14gun.rle. Yeah, I probably should have mentioned the period:

So it does. I've checked in a correction.

Too bad nobody came up with a bigger limited spacefiller for that rule -- I bet there are some out there with as much variety as your original sample pattern, but where the orthogonal puffers all happen to get killed off by fuse-burning reactions of one kind or another.

Dean Hickerson's stamp collection hasn't been updated since 1995. Adding over 20 years of oscillator discoveries would at least triple the size, and tracking down all of the discovery credits would be a Herculean task (especially for low periods).

I don't think a single-file stamp collection is a good format anymore. A better starting point would be jslife plus my supplemental collection. This contains just about everything up to the end of 2014. The biggest difficulty, if anyone ever wants to do it, is to find credits for all of the old oscillators.

muzik wrote:If anything, I'm kind of surprised golly never came with a "smallest currently known oscillators of each period" pattern collection. Here's my crappy personal stamp collection of that description...

First, notice that after about p58 the vast majority of smallest known oscillators are either LCM oscillators or glider loops. I don't really think we need to collect the smallest oscillator of every period up to 240.

Second, many of these are not the smallest known. Off the top of my head, here are some obvious reductions:
  • Many patterns are not in their smallest phase. It's annoying to scan through the generations to find the minimum population.
  • Most snark loops should be modified to look like the p43 loop. Actual smallest loop depends on period mod 4.
  • p78: use smaller p6. Thumb works but there might be a smaller one.
  • p80: smallest is probably Rich's p16 on a small p5. Fumarole should work, but Octagon 2 or pseudo-barberpole might also work.
  • p84: there's a 52-cell p84 in jslife.

Re: Extended pattern collection for Golly

Okay, well, more or less as expected, the Github repository for an extended Golly pattern collection hasn't gotten any contributions yet except for my initial sample one.

So let's go back to this idea of collecting ideas via forum thread, and see if we can build up any momentum. I'd like to get a decent starter collection put together by the time the next version of Golly rolls out, whenever that is. Let's say it will be built around

Sokwe wrote:... jslife plus my supplemental collection. This contains just about everything up to the end of 2014.

And I may throw in a few toolkits and stamp collections and search results, things like the current Elementary Conduits Collection and H-to-G / H-to-Gn collections, that don't seem quite right for Very Large Patterns but still ought to be a little easier to get hold of than they are right now.

Sokwe wrote:The biggest difficulty, if anyone ever wants to do it, is to find credits for all of the old oscillators.

I'm going to refuse to let that slow me down -- will create the supplemental collection in a terribly imperfect form, most likely, but would be very happy if anyone wanted to tackle any part of the attribution-gathering problem.

Also an organized attempt at a "supplement to the supplement" would be much appreciated, to cover 2015 through 2017. This seems like a reasonable-sized task, where it wouldn't be too terribly difficult to come up with commented patterns with links to appropriate forum threads, Wiki pages, etc., sorted into jslife's folder structure.

Any takers?

To be clear, I was only talking about oscillators here. There are other pre-2015 patterns that aren't included. I used to collect new patterns for jslife in this thread, but I haven't done that in over two years. Still, I think it contains almost all of the remaining small, interesting pre-2015 patterns.

Obviously, there is also my comprehensive update to the moving section of jslife. I think the only things missing there are the two-engine Cordership and derivatives, David Bell's new switch engine technology, and a few new small c/4 orthogonal ships.

Just remember that someone needs to go back through the threads for your accidental/unsure/useless discoveries. Some interesting stuff sneaks in there from time to time (e.g. Bumper).

In another thread dvgrn wrote:My suggestion would be to go after the Syntheses folder. I guess many of the existing files are okay, but I wouldn't mind moving some of them to the extended patterns collection to make room for newer syntheses. Maybe add a few of the toughest 17-bit still lifes or some of the trickier oscillators? And I'll throw in a few optimized slmake recipes, no doubt.


Most of the oscillator syntheses come directly from jslife. Also, a good chunk of those are outdated.

Re: Extended pattern collection for Golly

Postby Sokwe » May 1st, 2018, 4:32 am

Here are some minor updates to some of the patterns from earlier in this topic:
Golly-patterns-update-01-May-2018.zip
(78.15 KiB) Downloaded 8 times

The changes are as follows:
  • phase-shift.rle: used matching stator variants in bottom row
  • traffic-light-hasslers.rle: added p29 pre-pulsar hassler
  • 2c5-orthogonal.rle: added 7 ships by Matthias Merzenich
  • c3-orthogonal.rle: added 6 ships by Matthias Merzenich
  • c4-diagonal.rle: added 1 ship by Nicolay Beluchenko
  • smallest-low-period.rle: smaller p24 ship and minor comment changes

#C Shows spaceships of all periods < 32 for which examples are known...


I guess Sir Robin doesn't fit well in smallest-low-period.rle, since technically there is a smaller p6 available. Probably it should just be added to spaceship-types.rle -- right? I don't quite see the point of adding an "oblique.rle" just yet.

It's in the April 5th update. I didn't include spaceship-types.rle in the May 1st update, because I didn't modify it.

Here is the combination of the April 5th and May 1st updates:
Golly-patterns-update-03-May-2018.zip
(102.06 KiB) Downloaded 15 times
There's nothing new in it, it just includes the files that were unmodified when I posted the May 1st update.

I don't know. Sir Robin might be one of the very few small patterns that deserves to be highlighted in its own pattern file. The comments could include notes about its discovery and the history of knightship searches. If so, I would probably prefer "knightship.rle", although that's just my personal opinion, not for any compelling reason.
