Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

I may or may not have just discovered a new spaceship. I checked through the wiki and couldn't find it, but tell me if this is already a thing. It is speed 2c/20 and orthogonal. Here is the RLE: x = 0, y = 0, rule = B3/S23-a4ei6 4bo3b2o$3b3o3b2o$2bobo3b2o$3obo3bo! If it is new, I am thinking of nami...

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries

I just found a simple predecessor of the queen bee:

Code: Select all

x = 0, y = 0, rule = B3/S23
bo3bo$obobobo$bobobo$2bobo!
I don't know if this is an original discovery or even useful in any way, but here it is. This orientation generates her majesty such that she is moving upward.

Re: Thread for basic questions

For this question I was visualizing something like ants . Or possibly one of the strange patterns generated by the repeat script , which can even appear to move faster than the speed of light, though of course information doesn't actually travel that fast. Is either of these close to what you're de...

Re: Thread for basic questions

Is there any use for a spaceship which can be extended infinitely and which moves at the speed of light but deteriorates into random unstable sparks constantly until it disappears entirely? Related question, are there any known induction coils that move? I'm fairly new (ok fine, I've been playing fo...
