Would like to mention this rulescaling script, automatically changes the range smoothly. Z/X to increase/decrease step and space to advance. Set base in the code to your base range.

Code: Select all

```
x = 55, y = 28, rule = R2,C0,M1,S7..11,B7..9,NM

Nice pattern. But we already have a set scaling scriptgorithm.fluffykitty wrote:Would like to mention this rulescaling script, automatically changes the range smoothly. Z/X to increase/decrease step and space to advance. Set base in the code to your base range.Code: Select all

That last pattern was made by someone else (copypaste bugs ugh)

Code: Select all

```
from decimal import *
import golly as g
def setrange(x):
#ltlrangeconvert.py
#A script to change the range
#but keep MOST of the dynamics
#DISCLAIMER: Drastic range changes will remove the dynamics.
#Thanks to Dean Hickerson's algorithm!
#By Saka.
getcontext().prec = 8
fullrule = g.getrule()
sections = fullrule.split(",")
r = sections[0]
b = sections[4]
s = sections[3]
c = sections[1]
m = sections[2]
n = sections[5]
#Filter n so :Txxx don't get involved
nlist = n.split(":")
npure = nlist[0]
#Aaand filter r so the R is gone
rpure = int(r[1:])
#Getting bmin and bmax outta that string...
bpure = b.translate(None,"B")
blist = b[1:].split("..")
bmin = int(blist[0])
bmax = int(blist[1])
#Now for smin and smax...
spure = s.translate(None,"S")
slist = s[1:].split("..")
smin = int(slist[0])
smax = int(slist[1])
#Input time
try:
rangeto = x
except:
rangeto=g.prompt("","5")
rangetostr = str(rangeto)
#Now for calculations!
meaningoflife = (2*Decimal(rangeto)+1)**2/(2*Decimal(rpure)+1)**2
newbmin = str(int(round(bmin*meaningoflife))) #Huh. Decimal to number to integer to string
newbmax = str(int(round(bmax*meaningoflife)))
newsmin = str(int(round(smin*meaningoflife)))
newsmax = str(int(round(smax*meaningoflife)))
newrule = "R"+rangetostr+","+c+","+m+","+"S"+newsmin+".."+newsmax+","+"B"+newbmin+".."+newbmax+","+npure
g.setrule(newrule)
g.reset()
g.getevent()
base=100
down=range(base,0,-1) #descending
up=range(base,500) #ascending
x=up+range(500,0,-1)
for i in x:
setrange(i)
g.show(str(i))
for j in xrange(1):
g.step()
g.fit()
g.update()
a=g.getevent()
skipcheck=True
while not skipcheck and a!="key space none":

A range 2 bugs variant that doesn't explode, featuring an unloopable RRO:

Most displeasingly, the Bugs R17 rule calculated by hand seems to be extremely inert:

Code: Select all

```

```

Most displeasingly, the Bugs R17 rule calculated by hand seems to be extremely inert:
