Agar guns

Post by Zacinfinity » March 11th, 2017, 10:38 pm

I was wondering if there are any agar crawler guns?
Specially for zebra stripes but I am cool with any agar

If you are not restricting your rulespace, here is an p112 in an nontotalistic rule

Code: Select all

Thanks, thats really helpful but I would prefer conway life (if its possible)
but I would appreciate any ruleset

The closest I think you could get to an "agar gun" in Life would be lightspeed oscillators stuck inside a stripes agar.

This seems a bit of a contrived example, bit it qualifies. Here is Dean Hickersons' p6 light speed signal source and sink embedded in the stripes agar:

Thanks, that is exactly what I wanted
too bad we don't have single signal oscillators then we could make any period oscillators

We have well-known 2c/3 signals and a signal elbow that converts a single signal to a double signal, but the required single-to-single elbow or double-to-single converter to make loops of arbitrary period remains an open problem.

yes but we would also still need it to be a light speed signal for a extendable-period oscillator
also can you show me the elbow

The speed affects nothing other than the minimum repeat time of the signal, what matters is the possible lengths of loop that can be created. Multiple signals can be packed into the same loop as long as they are separated by enough ticks that they do not interfere with one another.

Here's the current almost-solution to the omniperiodicity problem. The 2c/3 signal wire can be connected into a loop with arbitrary period, but you can't put two elbows in a row because the signal-doubling trick only works once.

I seem to recall there's a 2c/3 to 5c/9 signal elbow, also -- yup, in the middle of the left edge, in the "fizzles" stamp collection in the above link. So theoretically a 5c/9 to 2c/3 elbow might also fit the bill, if it recovers in less than 19 ticks.

I'm still hoping that some inspired and dedicated searching, maybe using SAT solvers, will be able to locate an example of one of the two converters that BlinkerSpawn mentioned. At least, it would be good to run a drifter-style search right to the edge of what current technology can manage (GPUs, distributed searching). It's been quite a few years since the last concerted effort to find something along these lines, and computers just keep getting more powerful...!

Yeah, but luckily I am using a brute-force method of finding it in a program I am creating.
It may be slow but it will DEFINITELY find it if it exists
Thanks for the help and if any more news comes up about it post it here

It might be a good idea to do some timed runs on small searches, bearing in mind that for every new cell you add to a brute-force search, the search time approximately doubles.

It's easy to get a little too ambitious where exponential increases are lurking in the time estimates. Someone recently reported starting a search that had an expected run time measured in centuries.

In fact the estimated number of centuries had 900 digits... and that was just for a 20x20 search area.

I know but it is worth a shot (but your probably right because Im using python :P )

I don't know why I thought I could successfully fool around with this by hand and hope to succeed but I did find this amusing.

Argh, yes.

Quite a few search tools have appeared on the scene since that almost-elbow was found, though. That missing bit is pretty close to the edge; I wonder if something like Bellman could come up with a custom attachment at that corner that would restore the bit? (There are other Bellman threads on the forums if that executable doesn't work, or doesn't make any sense...!)
