Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

Thanks Moosey 1) Still lives are generally not notable, unless you can make a new HBK with them, or if they have some other cool property. Any pointers to a procedure to follow to identify the other cool properties, or how to separate boring discoveries from interesting ones? 2) There are many many ...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

Does anyone know what this is? It's a 44 cell still life that closely resemble the Diamond Ring just below it in this video . It does not appear in the wiki in the list of Still Lifes with 44 cells. x = 13, y = 13, rule = B3/S23 6bo$5bobo$4bobobo$4bobobo$2b2o2bo2b2o$bo4bo4bo$ob4ob4obo$bo4bo4bo$2b2o ...

Thread For Your Naming Proposals of Unnamed Patterns

Trying to find a thread to discuss naming unnamed patterns, my first intuition was to look in the Patterns forum , and try to spot a thread following the "Thread For Your ..." pattern. None came up so created this one. However, there is an old thread with a similar intent: Project Alias But two prob...

Re: Pages with invalid RLE files

it shouldn't be necessary to report very many more missing RLE files in this format. Perfect, thanks for the script. It makes my Life easier :-) I tried to report this process in How to contribute: Pattern Pages . Link to specific edit if you want to check the process is captured correctly: http://...

Re: Pages with invalid RLE files

@77topaz: dang apologies, the first line was an extra line (post edited and removed now, it should be correct).
Very good catch, thank you!

Re: Pages with invalid RLE files

Some pages with missing .rle file (404): RLEs are from Catagolue, except: - the first one (42883M) which is my (hopefuly correct) condensed version of the original post at http://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=&p=66055#p66055 - Jormungant's G-to-H - Bronco: RLE is missing http://www.conwa...

Done by your friendly neighborhood moderator dvgrn, who also refers to himself in the third person.
Haha, thanks friendly neighbor.
Maybe dvgrn wouldn't want to be confused with Dvgrn either?

Re: Empty lines in RLE

Thank you so much 77topaz, you nailed it: I missed that the $ end of line character can also be preceded with a number just like o and b.

Re: Empty lines in RLE

Thank you for the quick reply. How would LifeViewer "know" where the empty line is from the RLE file? I apologize if this is obvious to you and I'm missing something, but how can you infer where the blank line is by just parsing the Hooks RLE file? #N Hooks #C A period 5 oscillator. #C www.conwaylif...

Empty lines in RLE

RLE seems to ignore empty lines. Is this a limitation (which justified the existence of other encodings?) that prevents RLE to work with patterns with empty lines, or is my implementation RLE wrong? Thanks Examples: 1. Hooks 6b2o3b$ob2obobo3b$2obobo5b$4b2o5b$5bo5b2$7b2o2b$7bo3b$8b3o$10bo! Would not ...
