Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

Thank you for your comments. I'm surprised to hear that the lookahead cache actually slowed some searches down. It would be very interesting to get a better insight into what's going on there. I think deepening amount of 3 was quite reasonable, but it always seemed to me that the high deepening leve...

Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

@Sokwe: In addition to my speculation about search time efficiency vs deepening amount (which is complex) I considered increasing the lookahead cache. After mentioning this idea on Discord, Pavgran looked into testing this idea but found the relevant code is disabled in qfind-c8 and it's not a simpl...

It starts playing fine for me, but there are playback issues, particularly around the 20s mark.

I've been looking for a project to use some compute time I have available. @Sokwe: Thanks for your ongoing work on qfind and for getting this project up and going.

This pattern in LongLife expands past the bounding box of its bounding dimond.

Code: Select all

It doesn't. A diamond has D4 odd symmetry, while your pattern has D4 even symmetry.

It clearly does expand beyond its bounding diamond.

Can there be a warning if I'm running a script in golly but suddenly clicked on the close-window button?
To clarify, I'm pretty sure that this request is specific to the case where a script calls g.new() early on (or something similar) so there won't be a warning about losing unsaved work.

There are elementary spaceships at 16 different speeds, although most of them are not natural. I'm sure there are also numerous isotropic NT rules which have spaceships of many different ...
