Re: bubblegum's Cellular Automata

B2e3aij4e/S1c2-i3-aq4cijz (Pi-rotechnics) is a very conduit-heavy rule. The two main stars of this rule are two failedreps, the pi and the V: x = 10, y = 3, rule = B2e3aij4e/S1c2-i3-aq4cijz 3o4b3o$obo6bo$9bo!

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Multistate rules now draw with 1 if the selected state is not 0, and smart drawing is effectively off. Please post a pattern that reproduces that behaviour. #C [[ PASTET 1 PASTE E! 0 1 ]] x = 3, y = 1, rule = LifeHistory 3A! #C [[ PASTET 1 PASTE B! 0 1 ]] x = 3, y = 1, rule = DeadlyEnemies 3A!

also yeah another bug: no matter what step size you use it first just goes one generation and then the cell dies instead of the step size you chose
It's not a bug. When stepping LifeViewer stops as soon as the pattern dies.
Well that's just terrible design.

What's wrong? I don't see anything wrong (Mobile, google chrome 85.0.4183.127). The cell just dies.
He means that the generation stays at the generation it died once.
A bit more: Afterwards, Space becomes the same as Tab while B/Backspace remains fine.

Why not simply merge the wiki account and the forum account into a single ConwayLife account? I don't understand why that isn't the case already.

I'd still consider it natural, since symmetry wouldn't help with the formation of an asymmetrical object.

why is this the definition of "natural"
