### Re: Wilfred

Wilfred is based on Brian's Brain where guns are rare. The technique used by Wilfred to provide guns using runners (oscillators) can be applied to other rules. The Star Wars variant 34/2/4, is another rule with few guns, Wilfred2 provides it with guns and oscillators with all periods > 3. Rule defin...

### Re: Request a Rule to be "Tamed"

Is there a rule that uses the knight neighborhood (B3,N@54422a) that tends to do something besides explode or wither away and leave nothing but still lifes and sometimes small-period oscillators, i.e. that has spaceships? There are many such rules. For example the following Square Cell rule: P2.png...
