For a pattern like this, with n cells in the top middle area:
x = 13, y = 4, rule = KnuthArrows
D$A.8A.2A2$A.8A.2A!

The speed is approximately C/2^^^^^...^^3 with n-2 arrows.
Things to work on:
- Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule (someone please search the rules)
- Find a C/10 in JustFriends
- Find a C/10 in Day and Night

Ahh, so for 1 cell, then n cells, then m cells, it's asymptotic to c/2^^^^^...^^m+1 with n-2 arrows.

What will be the next step in how slow the spaceships will be?
I'm deleting the post and reuploading it the second time, and still nobody answers?

Well, first off, try doing some research yourself if you are really that desperate. Second, I am not sure what the next step is. Some of the other Turing machines on the page I referenced are able to calculate much larger values, so if you want to port them into Golly, you might be able to create slower ships.

Where is it? I saw your tetrational rule, but not your double tetrational rule!
