question

I have wondered for a while about this, how do members of the forum get patterns (that change) as avatars?

Re: New ideas for pattern types

Well, what would a linear spaceship be? This all sounds timecubic to me... A linear patternis a pattern that has an infinite number of cells (but it can be contained inside either a paralellogram/rectangle in which one of the dimensions of them is "infinite" the other is "finite") For planar it mea...

Re: New ideas for pattern types

Hmm. Interesting. Well, a linear spaceship would be a growing spaceship; those already exist. Most linear replicators are linear sawtooths as well, I guess. A planar spaceship, that is, a growing 2D spaceship, already exists too; I'm thinking of the c/4 to c/5 growing oblique spaceship, which, I gu...

New ideas for pattern types

I've been thinking about patturns with an infinite population (defined by a lattice) either in one dimensions like a wick: call that "linear" or in 2 dimensions like an agar: call that "planar" Now if a patturn is finite it could be called "0 dimensional" and the catorgaries are: Still life Oscillat...

Re: Methuselah Definition

My way would be to state it in terms of the "L/I" (lifespan divided by initial population) but have no idea what number it should be!

In terms of stablilize if it becomes either a series (or one) other known patturns that have repetition of any form

Re: Life Replicator?

Nice try, but we're after a finite self-replicating pattern. Otherwise, you could solve the omniperiodicity problem, as well, with infinite glider streams of periods 19, 23, 29, ... doesn't say that here: http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/index.php?title=Replicator and what's this got to do with an "o...

Life Replicator?

If you have a line 1 cell thick that stretches on for infinity in both directions(it's a repeating infinite pattern similar to wick and agars so i guess it's valid) I don't know with absolute certainty, but I think it might be a "replicator" (in "Life") I don't know how to import infinite patterns (...

possible mistake in wiki

this statement from the "wiki" doesn't seem to make sense: "that oscillators are known that oscillate at all periods other than 19, 23, 34, 38, 41, 43 and 53" does it mean: oscillators can oscillate at all periods other than 19, 23, 34, 38, 41, 43 and 53" (as in these are the only periods that are i...

this pattern gives birth to 4 gliders (I think) and a load of still lifes (that I haven't counted yet :D )

x = 291, y = 1, rule = B3/S23

I thought it might be easier to post this here rather than create a new thread, I'm new to this forum and have never studied the game of life in detail and a lot of the board has codes on it that I can't use.

They paste into Golly, the program that Extrementhusiast linked to up the page. If you need a hand getting it to work, feel free to ask. It might not be work if your computer is really old though.

I am a complete beginner at this (although I have known about the game of life for a couple of years and have read a lot about configurarations) But I've never studied any patturn, because I've never had the resources to :( So my ideas are only based on guess work.
