Re: A new spaceship search approach

I've done some random tests with this program, and it's neat. While it takes about 17 minutes or so to find the copperhead on my machine, it takes about 50 minutes for the weekender, which was pretty fast. For comparison, with 4 threads on qfind, it took about 25. I'll probably run some of the searc...

Drawing on PCA grids after I Alt-Z and then use the color picker seems to often put the dot I draw in an incorrect spot. I am not sure what causes this exactly, but it seems to be reproducible. I'm on Chrome.

Nobody did. The period is estimated based on how the ship works. You can calculate the period because it does the same type of thing over and over (the binary counting).

The maximum speed that zfind supports is c/2. I don't know the algorithm well enough to explain this limitation. That's not quite true. Searching for a 2c/3 in B2ac3ae/S1c2i3i works just fine. It seems that sometimes the search requires higher widths than it should, but these work below, as well as...

Maybe. Can you post the exact parameters of the search? I seem to have to specify a lot of extra things for it not to give me weird shrinking stationary lines.
