Re: 3c/7 othogonal and 2c/9 diagonal spaceships

Is that stupid to suggest to "take it from the other side" and trying to find back ends, then progressing in the sense of direction until the front is complete?

Re: Project Alias

The 2c/5's movement is somewhat similar to the one of a tumbler, and you can imagine it's two sides are spinning in opposite dirtections) so I'd suggest a name based on spinning, something like core, rotor, helix, car-washer (now THAT would be a strange name).

Actually, the incomplete part goes forward, while the reappearing part goes backward, so it is a c/4 tail rather than an engine.

Most. Useless. Discovery. Ever. If you draw a diagonal 3-pixel line between 2 loaves, they both flip.

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

What you posted was a "natural" predecessor that evolves into the oscillator, but may not be easy to synthesize. My idea is something that is definitely synthesizable (one sided), and possibly synthesizable (two sided), with a possible method for how to convert it into the same oscillator, using ar...

Not quite. The end stabilizers should be beacons. I think the name comes from the fact that the rotor bits flip back and forth between the beacons and the space between the four objects. It was mentioned in Lifeline #3, but it isn't in the wiki or the glossary. It works the same whether the side st...

The Semifore (synthesis: http://codercontest.com/mniemiec/lg/30pd2bc2.rle ) is probably a good starting place. It shouldn't be too hard to add a second siamese one, with the two sharing one pond. From there, it shouldn't be too hard to peel the outer ponds (or perhaps loaves, if they are easier to ...

2 "double PIs" colliding in a symmetrical way (fig 1) creates a large pattern (fig 2) made with 2 large on-offs that looks fairly difficult to synthetize the "normal way". By adding a few stabilisators (fig 3) you get a very big billard-table with few gliders (warning: uselessly big stabilisation al...

If you collide a glider with those 2 Blocks and 1 hive, it creates a block and glider, the glider going in sthe same way as the original. However, if you put another block, it will catalyse the destruction of the 3 other SLs and send back the glider. So, the presence or not of the block creates 2 di...
