A way to make n*c ships for any number n, under 25c for 3 state LTL rules:

1. Draw a n by 2n box of state 1 cells and a box of equal size under it of state two, like this for 3c:

`x = 6, y = 6, rule = R5,C3,M0,S0..0,B18..18,NM:P2000,2000`

6A$6A$6A$6B$6B$6B!

2. Set the rule to R(2n-1),C3,M0,S0..0,(2n^2)..(2n^2),NM:P2000,2000

3. That's it

An example would be a 3c ship, so R5,C3,M0,S0..0,18..18,NM:P2000,2000

`x = 6, y = 6, rule = R5,C3,M0,S0..0,B18..18,NM:P2000,2000`

6A$6A$6A$6B$6B$6B!

4c works the same, with rule R7,C3,M0,S0..0,B32..32,NM:P2000,2000:

`x = 8, y = 8, rule = R7,C3,M0,S0..0,B32..32,NM:P2000,2000`

8A$8A$8A$8A$8B$8B$8B$8B!

25c:

`x = 50, y = 50, rule = R49,C3,M0,S0..0,B1250..1250,NM:T2000,2000`

50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$

50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50A$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$

50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B$50B!
