Thanks, although you have recorded some things differently from the main table. On the wiki, a cell is marked green if there is a known spaceship of that width/speed combination and
it has been proven that no thinner spaceships of that type exist. Your table, on the other hand, includes for example a green "48" for (0,5)c/15 asymmetric ships. I'm certain that you haven't proved the nonexistence of a width-47 p15 c/3 orthogonal ship, considering this ship exists:
Code: Select all
x = 30, y = 62, rule = B3/S23

zfind should echo your options back to you at the start of the search. If you send the output to a file you can simply look at the top of the file to see what the search is. For any potentially long search you should always send the output to a file. To do so, simply add "> output.txt" or ">> output.txt" after your zfind parameters. Obviously, you can change the name of the output file if you wish (you wouldn't want to overwrite your previous output).
