Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

Re: Spaceships in Life-like cellular automata

I've been trying to find a ship in B3/S36, but no luck yet. I used LSSS to search every seedcolumn for logical-width-70 c/3 orthogonal ships with even and odd symmetry. These were the longest partial results for each symmetry type: x = 283, y = 26, rule = B3/S36 24b2o77b2o92b2o32b2o$22b3obo75bob3o89...

Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

I don't think it has much clearance. For clearance I was referring to the period 36 spark given off by the traffic jam, rather than the p4 sparker... I certainly don't know of any other p36 isolated dot sparkers with reasonable clearance off the top of my head, and it wouldn't surprise me if the sp...

For me, the first pattern evolves into an r-pentomino after 2 generations, as it should. I don't think KILLGLIDERS is supposed to kill a glider that's about to interact with a spark.
