New idea: Final shape

Okay, so, I don’t know if this is going to be completely useless or not, but I want to share an idea that I had that might help us understand things about certain types of patterns, and might even encourage us to branch out to find other unique structures in life. This idea is a new measure to a pat...

Re: B2e3ain4-cjqtw5ceiry6-ac78/S2ac3ajknq4eiqwy5-ain6-e78

Firstly, has nobody found out yet that this rule is invertible? #CXRLE Pos=-126,-105 x = 253, y = 211, rule = B2e3ain4-cjqtw5ceiry6-ac78/S2ac3ajknq4eiqwy5-ain6-e78:T253,211 253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$ 253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$253o$2...

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries

A second useless oscillator that looks silly when you run it: EDIT: It's actually really sparky, so it may have some use. #CXRLE Pos=-13,-4 x = 22, y = 15, rule = B3/S23 14bo$5b3o4b2obobob2o$10bobo2bob2obo$4bo8b2o$2b2o3bo4b2obo$2b2obobob2ob 2o2b2obo$o6b2ob2o6b2o$bob2obo4bob4ob2o$bobo3bobobobo2b2o$3b...

Integer glider synthesi?

Well, hey again guys. Sorry for not posting in like a week, I’m still pretty new to this, so new in fact that I still don't know how to upload soups to catalogue. So, even though I can’t make any major discoveries in patterns, I would at least like to spark some discussion about something that has b...

Re: Snowflakes (B2ci3ai4c8/S02ae3eijkq4iz5ar6i7e)

How do I put this rule into apgsearch? When I put it in, it just takes out aaaaaaaaaaall of the letters and just turns it into B2348/S0234567. (B2ci3ai4c8/S02ae3eijkq4iz5ar6i7e --> B2348/S0234567) How do I fix this???

Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

This is probably known, but it's my first ever find so it's kinda special to me, so I thought I'd post it. #CXRLE Pos=-16,-4 x = 25, y = 15, rule = B3/S23 8b2o5bo5b2o$b2o4bo2bo3bobobo2bo2bo$b2o5bobo3bobob3o2b2o$3b2ob2ob2ob3o 2bo3b2o$b2obo2bobo3bo4bob2ob2o$5b2ob2o2bo2b4o5bo$o2b2o2bobo3b2o2bo2bob 2o$b...

Re: Where do I start?

Okay, so I downloaded a CGOL search tool, WLS. I was trying to test the waters with what I could do, so I took a lightweight spaceship, removed the upper left dot, and hit 'Start', expecting just a LWSS to come out. I instead got a big p2 oscillator. (No problems with this, i'm sure there's a settin...

Re: Where do I start?

Wow, thanks for the help and suggestions to help me get started! I just have one question. While I was browsing the tutorial pages on LifeWiki, I found this sentence... It is one of the few areas in the Game of Life that many discoveries can still be made without using scripts. So... does this mean ...

Where do I start?

Hello. My name is Mandelbrot and I really want to be a helpful part of the CGOL community, but I've never really done something like this before, and I really wanna help find cool patterns, particularly oscillators. However, I don't really know how... and I really don't wanna feel like dead weight, ...

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries

I was messing around with rails, and found some possibly interesting stuff, I even found a wick, but i'm probably not the first one to find it :p #CXRLE Pos=-54,-41 x = 46, y = 42, rule = B3/S23 o2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo$46o$36b2o$46o$o2bo2bo2b o2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo2bo...
