Re: Golly 2.8 has been released

I can't seem to find how to show the list of scripts I have on the left side of the window like 2.7 and previous, I'm guessing that's unintentional, or am I just missing something?

Re: 7c/40 toroidal spaceship?

Either you tried to post and see if the object you speak of is known and forgot to attach the pattern, or you're wondering if a 7c/40 toroidal spacehip is known at all? As for the latter, I'm not too sure, and toroidal spaceships don't seem to be a widely studied area.

Re: apgsearch v2.2

...how easy would fixing the script be? It would be very easy for me to fix the script if something like that does end up happening, so I wouldn't mind if catagolue adopted the idea of specifying number of soups with specific symmetry, not to mention that I've been thinking of how great it would be...

Re: Soup search results

Weird component: RLE Might be known. This may explain how a particularly large and rare object showed up in Okrasinski's census, looks like it showed up as a interaction between a twinhat and the particular reaction you mentioned: x = 47, y = 8, rule = B3/S23 13b2o$12bobo$12bo$2bo3bo3b3o14bo3bo13bo...

Re: Population sum

This is one way of doing it:

Code: Select all

import golly as g

gens = 4
total = 0

for n in xrange(0, gens):
    total += int(g.getpop())
    g.run(1)

g.show(str(total))

Re: Broken layout on LifeWiki

The layout on Achim's p8 seems broken to me. From what I've seen, it's way more than that one page: many pages exhibit the same behavior, although it appears to me that the affected pages are random, so I wouldn't know what's causing it. I'm going to take a wild, potentially inaccurate guess that i...

I'm using the 64-bit version of Golly 2.7b2 for Windows 7, and when I select a script, Golly decides to run the script at the very top of the visible part of the script window first, and once it stops after some event like canceling it manually or conditions aren't met, the script I originally wante...

Can a pattern with valid apgcode exceed 40x40 bounding box? If some of the phases have valid apgcodes and some don't? When apgsearch attempts to canonize a pattern, it will pick out a representation that fits within the 40x40 bounding box. Only when all phases of the pattern can't fit within that r...

This is indeed unfortunate, but it's still great that catagolue and CGoL have gained some attention from this, and hopefully won't be the last.

Now that it's so fast, it should be easy to find all new objects for a particular rule (ignoring symmetry), maybe by entering "b3s23/*" or simply just "b3s23".

This is a fantastic change, it makes things so much easier when writing a script to get this information since it's all on one page. My previous post has a newly modified version of Andrew's script edited in, so go there if you still want to check for new unique objects.
