Isn‘t that basically the same reaction as in the PPS ships?

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Do you have any plans on updating the moving-objects repository? I've been planning to update it again soon. I just need a bit of time to get everything together. I'm still undecided on two things: How should the various new chicken-wire ships be included? I want it to be fairly clear how the compo...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Thanks for giving it a try! That solution is much better. I‘m still wondering whether branching could be supported by some AI that sets up search parameters appropriately reacting on how long some partials persist. Search parameters could be manipulated relatively easy in the dump file of WLS which ...

Re: Small Spaceship Syntheses

Now that's extremely cool! Syntheses for repeating parts! For sure you have noticed that you can us either the left or the right corner on both sides. But I'm afraid these are the simplest corners I know of. There are a few others, but they are bigger. Without too much understanding about how synthe...

the p6 wick has c(1,1)/4 support (see jslife-moving-parts). Hmm, what is `jslife-moving-parts`?

Re: Finite board census?

I love these!

Your c(1,1)/4 wave is known, but I can't remember we ever found a completion

the p6 wick has c(1,1)/4 support (see jslife-moving-parts).

jslife also has a waves section where all new ones should be added!

Re: Agar crawlers

Great! By now we should be able to more generally construct 2c/n corners. The edges consist of interleaved classical 2c/3 half signals in the right angle to match the given speed. The corner construction itself then is always the same and one just needs to align the phase of the edges. It should be ...
