Re: B2ein3cijn4cnrwy5cnq6e/S1c2-ai3acny4anqy5c6ek8

Amazing, isn't it? Compared to the recent Orthogonoid puffer in Snowflakes, for example, these new spaceships are practically microscopic. Yes I was looking for the most simple geminoid rule and design and this is amazingly simplistic rule. As for the Snowflakes although I really like the feel of t...

Search for fast signals

In CGOL we usually pass information inside gliders or *WSSs, this is wireless communication which works. But if we ever would like to break the c/2 speed limit at least for complex computations, we would like to have some sort of signal propagation environment and signal inside it with logical opera...

What about these new Coe's p8 agars, for example? How might they be made into something that's useful in practice for transmitting signals?

I'll be very interested to see if any loopship/camelship/etc. designs show up using this toolkit. I wonder if this is a cost efficient toolkit?

Re: P30 Self replicating Geminoid

Several notes and further directions: 1. Gemini with oscillators are trickier than I thought. The failed attempt shows how tricky it might be. 2. When I switched to duplicators I knew I'm fine mod2, this was enough for me. As I knew I can modify everything mod8 and P30 will give me all the needed re...

Re: P30 Self replicating Geminoid

@dvgrn I wonder who was the first to actually implement this design pattern? I would guess my Serizawa gemini was the first "true gemini" which also used the design of two copies. Oddly enough this is the first such design in CGOL. I wonder if the P30 could also use some of the other designs? I didn...

Here is a failed attempt. I'm not sure why it's failing, so maybe someone can help (it works up to the second lower part where the phase is mismatched by 11).

Re: Implementing rule 110 CA with p30 glider stream logic

I was thinking about a rake which generates SL readers just like in caterloopillar and a static tape which evolves by rule 110 due to the reading mechanism. Maybe a line of such readers can also be used to simulate 2D CA. As of your design (I still don't get how it works), maybe it's simpler to modi...

I think the second pattern is called forward rake. I like the way the patterns are built - It feels like somewhat new way of coding in CGOL which is using new technology. But I wonder what are the usages for such? To me it somewhat paradoxical to use more complex spaceships which are less natural th...

Re: Stable signal converters

I really like the wires. I think there is unexplored potential to shortcut logical operations using them (i.e. gliderless logic). The intuition of wires is also simpler than of the gliders. Somewhat trivial wire crossing - notice this is rare property for other wires: x = 171, y = 108, rule = B3/S23...

Re: Any serious survey of constructions in Margolus Critters?

As far as I can envision the construction mechanism it could be working like that: 1. Some container of gliders will send us infinite amount of glider as much as we like. At the moment you have a 90 degree reflector you can have a snake container which takes O(n) space and stores O(n^2) gliders. 2. ...

Re: Any serious survey of constructions in Margolus Critters?

How do you use something like that? Well you don't, unless you either have a tool that shifts the stream back into a regular same lane stream or you use from the first place the shifted stream. This is what called a signal - a reusable stream of spaceships. We get this kind of problems all the time...
