Post by Hdjensofjfnen » March 16th, 2016, 4:32 pm

I know this pattern is known, but what is it called?

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 5
2b2ob2o2b$bobobobob$o2bobo2bo$obo3bobo$bo5bob!

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 9, rule = B3-jqr/S01c2-in3
3bo$4bo$o2bo$2o2$2o$o2bo$4bo$3bo!

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i
4b3o$6bo$o3b3o$2o$bo!

Well, first thing first, it's not a still life because it evolves.
This is game of life, this is game of life!

Sorry, I edited it to make it correct. It was missing a part originally.

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 9, rule = B3-jqr/S01c2-in3
3bo$4bo$o2bo$2o2$2o$o2bo$4bo$3bo!

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i
4b3o$6bo$o3b3o$2o$bo!

You can look up small objects like this in Mark Niemiec's "Search For Pattern" page. This one is called "Up dove on dove".

Okay, so let me get this straight:

Beehive with corner = bun

Loaf with corner = wing

Mango with corner = dove

Can this be merged with "Thread for your unknown objects" or whatever I called it.
