Okay, I'll admit my ignorance. What's the oddity about that page? Is it just that there's no synthesis, or is it the mysterious comment?

I've submitted a 7G solution to the emphatically nonmagical box:

Code: Select all

x = 16, y = 19, rule = B3/S23
11bo$12b2o$11b2o5$14bo$13bo$13b3o$bo$obo$o2bo8b2o$bobo2b2o3b2o$2bo4bo
5bo$3b4o2$3b2o$3b2o!
This seems like something that must have been discovered before -- I haven't looked, just ran synthsise-patt on that R predecessor -- and that transfer.py should have been able to figure out, so maybe that's the oddity. (?) Except I don't think anyone has been ambitious enough to apply transfer.py Lessons Learned to 24-bit still lifes...

No, it's that it's a "mango long line mango on boat" or whatever when there is a block, not a boat.

Ah, thanks. Figured it would be something obvious, but I didn't think it would be _that_ obvious...

Now that I bother to look for prior art, it was (also) silly of me to build a 7G synthesis when there were easy 6G ones:

Code: Select all

x = 14, y = 14, rule = B3/S23
11bobo$11b2o$12bo3$bo8b2o$obo6b2o$o2bo7bo$bobo2b2o$2bo4bo$3b4o2$3b2o$
3b2o!
