Ctrl+Shift+O should work if the rules are not changing automatically.
You'll need Golly 3.0b1.

Oh, I have Golly 3.0b1, but just I thought that I could simulate only the rules that were used in the patterns from the Larger than Life folder.

Check out the help under "Set Rule" with the Larger Than Life algorithm selected.

Impressive! It's 262c/346 diagonal. Scripts/lua/oscar.lua could tell you this kind of thing very quickly. Makes a reflected copy of itself every 173 ticks.

Since Andrew was writing a whole new algorithm for golly he wanted to keep it simple at first. He says that maybe in the full release infonite grids will be supported.

First, thanks to Andrew Trevorrow for implementing Larger than Life in Golly! I've wanted something like this for years.

Some LtL rules contain very slow spaceships, like this speed 2/1846 diagonal spaceship in a range-10 rule, which I found in 2002. (This is included in the new Golly distribution.)

Can anyone find anything slower? Or maybe a slow knightship?

### Re: Larger than Life

Dean, is there a trick to find good "blobby" rules? The dynamics interest me. Are there any slower bugs-ish ships??
Edit:
Tiny script to calculate the number of neighbors of a given rule. I know, I know, the algorithm for von Neumann is unnecessarily big and long but it works.

Code: Select all

``````#ltlneighcalc.py
#Calculates the number of neighbors
#for a given LTL extended neighborhood.
# :)
import golly as g
r = int(g.getstring("Range?","5"))
n = g.getstring("Neighborhood?","M")
result = "0"
if n == "M":
result = str((r*4)+((r*r)*4))
elif n == "N":
result = str(((r*4)+((r*r)-(r*3)))*2)
g.note(result)``````
And Dean, please do post the "faster" ships you found.

The only method I know of is to start with an interesting rule and then make small changes to the birth and survival limits, or change the range. If you change the range from r0 to r1, then the birth and survival limits should be multiplied by (2*r1+1)^2 / (2*r0+1)^2, approximately.

Often the modified rule will have somewhat similar dynamics, although the existence of a slow spaceship (or any other type of interesting object) in the original rule is no guarantee that the new one will have something similar.
And Dean, please do post the "faster" ships you found.

I wonder, will we ever get neighbourhoods larger than 50? I personally doubt it, because it would be kinda messy and unwieldy to work with
