Re: Another converter game

Here, I’m going to add a rule: at least one cell of the previous pattern must remain.

Technically, yes. Just don’t, in the future, destroy a large still life to make one block. :lol:

Another converter game

There was an old converter game, but we need a new one.

Rules:
Add a converter to extend the object (it can be periodic or a still life)
No posting twice in a row
Multi-step converters are allowed.

Let’s start with a boat:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3/S23

No need for SLmake, I'm good at "mannually" making things. Also, I can't edit pattern from Monday to Friday. 1. Still, a SLmake relative could be useful in the future. 2. School, huh?

Thanks. Honestly, I’m probably screwing myself over with this capital I, lowercase l tomfoolery. But this way I make guessing usernames passwords slightly more confusing.

This rule seems pretty engineerable and interesting, sorry if i'm cluttering OCA.

Building a spider gun/converter

This thread is for making a spider gun.

I have an idea for a period 5050 gun: a period 505 gun followed by a p5 quinti-snark and then a semi-snark. I’ve tried using the various shotgun assembly scripts, but none of them have worked.

The search for an Spartan reflector and/or g-x

This thread is for discussion of possible ways to make spartan reflectors/glider to Herschel converters. Ways I can think of to make them are: hitting a block then hassling the result into a B in a position so that it replaces the block.

What other ideas are there to make these?
