I was bored and made a Langton's ant, after quick success, I decided to try to make it more complicated by following the more advanced rules by Greg Turk and Jim Propp. Which allows for more colors. There is also a rule editor by pressing "Z".

Witch: "Can you make me a gingerbread house with candy canes ?"

Ant: "No problem !"

An interesting twist on an old method, @Lahat. Definitely deserving of Gold Star.

Thanks @dw817. I just implemented it, this version of Langton's ant isn't mine, Greg Turk and Jim Propp made it as well with a proof about why some rules create symmetry. Sadly that proof is behind a paywall, (which is a good excuse, because chances are I wouldn't understand it).

Also, using pget and pset makes is easy and fun to play with cellular automatons.

Oh yes, with PGET and PSET you can move the world, @Lahat, provided you can cover the CPU for it. :)
