Ridiculously simple fire salvo (which unfortunately fires the same lanes as my earlier fires), although it still suffers from a quadratic blowup: x = 119, y = 115, rule = B3-ckr5y/S2-i3-aek4ci5c 2bo$obo$b2o28$32bo$30bobo$31b2o28$62bo$60bobo$61b2o27$91bo$89bobo$90b 2o5$104bobo$105b2o$105bo5$108bo$107...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

I empirically measured the decay speeds of some giant blobs of space junk (I was referring to these types of ships and assumed you were too; I guess I wasn't thorough enough in my exception for "engineered" spaceships), and for ships of all different speeds they seem to be roughly the same, somewher...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Partial spaceships decay at about the speed of light, so if you tried to incrementally synthesize a long spaceship, you would find the formed part decaying away from the direction you're synthesizing it faster than you could put the next components in (especially since it takes a massive blob of sti...

Here's a first start for slow-salvo construction: you can get at least 2 glider lanes (hd mod 6), but it's really inefficient: x = 386, y = 399, rule = B3-ckr5y/S2-i3-aek4ci5c o$b2o$2o28$30bo$31b2o$30b2o8$17bo$15bobo$16b2o20$63bo$61bobo$62b2o6$ 47bo$45bobo$46b2o28$77bo$75bobo$76b2o16$119bo$117bobo$1...

You input a number of generations and it gives you a list of rules that the sequence works in (not an LLS partial rule). It works with any pattern whatsoever.
