Saka wrote:What about a rule where state it's Life but every cell with 3a turns into state 2 which is highlife

Wasn't too interesting until I set it so that it could work vice versa:

Code: Select all

The standard spaceships get a nice strobe effect, and they become period 8:

Code: Select all

```
x = 12, y = 18, rule = L3H3L
.B3.B2.A$2.B6.B$3B2.A3.B$6.A3B3$7.A$5.A3.A$10.B$5.B4.B$6.2A3B3$7.2A$
5.A4.A$11.B$5.B5.B$6.B2A3B!
```

On top of that, there's a supersparky 13c/37 orthogonal spaceship:

Code: Select all

```
x = 4, y = 3, rule = L3H3L
A.B$2.AB$A.B!
```

There's also a c/14 a la CapLife:

Code: Select all

```
x = 4, y = 4, rule = L3H3L
3B2$B2.B$.3B!
```

The HighLife R-Pentomino lasts 5218 generations:

Code: Select all

```
x = 3, y = 3, rule = L3H3L
2B$.2B$.B!
```

In the DryLife version:

Code: Select all
