The rule template is an infobox template for rules for Life-like cellular automata. It takes the following parameters:

  • name: the name of the rule.
  • imgname: the name of the image (of a typical pattern) to display in the infobox; .png and .gif are appended automatically for the still and animated versions. The File: prefix should not be specified.
  • animated: should be set to true if an animated image for this rule has been uploaded.
  • b: the rule's birth (B) conditions.
  • s: the rule's survival (S) conditions.
  • f: for BSFKL rules, the rule's forcing (F) conditions.
  • k: for BSFKL rules, the rule's killing (K) conditions.
  • l: for BSFKL rules, the rule's living (L) conditions.
  • c: for Generations and Larger than Life rules, the total number of cell states. The parameter may also be specified as g.
  • r: for Larger than Life rules, the range.
  • m: for Larger than Life rules, whether the middle cell is included in the neighbor count (m=1) or not (m=0).
  • n: for Larger than Life rules, the neighbourhood type: Moore (n=M) or von Neumann (n=N)
  • char: the rule's character. Should be one of:
    • Stable: rules in which patterns tend to stabilize quickly and show little activity.
    • Chaotic: rules in which patterns tend to show complex behavior, but do not generally explode.
    • Explosive: rules in which patterns tend to grow without bound.
  • ruleinteger: the rule's rule integer (if any).
  • reversal: the rule's black/white reversal.
  • strobing: the rule's equivalent strobing rule. Should only be specified for self-complementary rules with S8 but not B0.

Example

An example can been seen to the right; it was generated with the following invocation:

{{Rule
|name        = Maze
|imgname     = maze
|b           = 3
|s           = 12345
|char        = Explosive
|ruleinteger = 31752
|reversal    = B0128/S01234678
|animated    = true
}}
