B026/S1
Posted: August 21st, 2017, 12:09 pm
B026/S1 is an explosive rule uncovered by Extrementhusiast and further explored by lots of other people. The two basic spaceships are two c/2 p4 diagonals:
As well as a p8 variant:
There's also a replicator that travels at the same speed, but period 16:
Replicators can be combined to achieve lower periods:
p16 double rake along with a reflection reaction:
p68 quad rake:
A puffer:
There's also this arbitrarily large period spaceship:
5cell breeder:
p2 and p16:
Raketype thing:
Extrementhusiast found a gun:

There has also been interest in 1cell thick soups, which do not explode. They cannot explode because they are bound to move only on one axis, and do not move much on that axis. However, this movement can support spaceships! Two have occurred naturally, 2c/10 and 2c/24:
Unnaturally, there are 2c/8, 2c/12, 2c/14, and 2c/16 spaceships:
There's also a tagalong for the 2c/10:

All of this and more can be found here, I reiterated some of the discoveries but please do consider reading through.
