## Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

For discussion of other cellular automata.

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

This is a great question!

`x = 2, y = 3, rule = B2ce3aekqy4-acjt5-nqry6-e7e8/S012aei3-akny4cejkrwy5ekqy6ikn7c8o\$bo\$bo!`

Yeah, something like that but maybe with a slightly larger separation.

Yeah, that. I suggest calling these SMOTs. (Spaceships Made of Themselves)

Or, depending on how you classify it, a very strange failedrep.

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Here's another attempt, in this one the ships can actually arrive in their correct position from infinity.
`x = 4, y = 23, rule = B2cei3aejy4ijk5cijnq6ci7/S12an3i4iknyz5cj6a2bo\$2o20\$b2o\$3bo!`

Nice rule too.
`x = 64, y = 64, rule = B2cei3aejy4ijk5cijnq6ci7/S12an3i4iknyz5cj6ab5ob3o4b2obo3b2o2bo3bo2b2o2b2ob2o5b4o4bo2b2ob3o\$4bo4bob2o3bo3bob2ob6o4bob3o4bob2o9bo2bob2o\$o3bo3b2o6b2ob2ob4o2bobobo2b5ob2o3b2o2bobobob2o2bo2bo\$2bo4b2ob3obob5obob3obobobobo3b3o6b2obo5b4obo\$o2b7obob4obo2bob2obobo2b2obob3obo4bob3o3bo4bobob2o\$o2bobo2b3ob3o3b2o3b2o2bobo2bo2bo5bo3b2o2b3o2bobo3bo\$3bob2ob4ob5ob5obobob2ob6obobobobob2o3bobob5o\$4o2b3o2b2o2b2o4b3o2b5ob2ob3o4b3ob3ob2o4bo2b2o\$2b5o2bo5b8o3bobo2b2ob2obo3bob2ob3o6b5obo\$o2bob2o2bobo6bo2b5o2b3o3bo6b5ob4ob2o2b4o3bo\$bobobo8bo2bob2o2bo2bobo4bobo7b2ob4o2b3obo4b2o\$ob2ob2obo5bo3bob3o2b2obo3b3ob2obobobo2b4o2bo6b2o2bo\$o5bo4b2obob4ob3ob2ob2o3bob3o3b2o2b6ob2ob2o2b3o\$3ob4o2bobobo4bo2b2o2b2o5b2o3b7o3b2o4bob2ob3obo\$3ob4ob2o8bo4b3obobo2b2o2b2ob2o2bobo2b2obo3b2obobo\$ob3ob4o2b4o2bob3o3bobo2bobo2b2ob3obo4b5o2bob4o2bo\$ob3ob2o4bo2b8ob4ob2ob2o2bob7obob2o2bob2ob3obo\$bobobo2b2o3bobo4bob3obob3obo5bo2bob2obob2obobo2b2ob3obo\$2obo2b2ob2o2b3ob3obob2ob5o3b5ob2ob3o3b2o2b2o2bobo2b2o\$b5obo6bob4o2bobob4ob3o2b2o5bobobobob3o2bob3ob2o\$2o2b3o2b2ob2obobob4o3bobo6b4o3b3o2b3o2b2o2bob2o2b2o\$2o2b2ob2o2b5o2b5o2b2o3b2obobobo3bob2o4b6obo3bo\$b2o3b2o2bob3o2b2ob4obobo2b3ob5obob6o2b2o4b5o\$3bo2bo2bob3obo3b6o2b2o4bo6bobo3bo2b3o3bo2b3ob2o\$2b5o3b4obo2bo2b2obo2bob4ob8obobo2bob8o3b3o\$bob2o2b3o4b2o2bob3obob2o2b2o2b3o2bobo4bo7bo4bobo\$ob3o3bob7o3b2o4b2obo4bo3b4ob4o2b4o3bo4b2o\$ob2obo2bob4o5b3obob3o3b2o2bo5bob5o2bo3bo2bobob2o\$2b2obobo4bo2bob2o2bob3o7bo2b2o2bobo3bo2bob2ob2ob2o3b2o\$2bobob2ob2o2bo2b2obo3b2o2b2o2bob2o4bo2bo4b2ob2o3b3obo2bo\$3ob2o4b2o3b2obobob2obo3bob4obobob2obob3o2b2o2b4o2b4o\$ob8o2b2o2bo3bo2b3ob2o3bobo3b2obo4bobobob2obo2bo4bo\$3obo2bo3b2obo4bo2b2obobo4b3ob3ob2o2b2o2bo3bo4b3o2b2o\$b2o5bo7b4obo2bo2b4obo4bob4obo3b2obob2o2bo2bo2bo\$b7o2bobo3b2ob3o7b2o5b2o2bo2bo3bo3bo3b2o2b2o2bo\$6o2bob2o4bob3o2bo2b2obobobob2ob6o2b3o2b4o2b2o2b3o\$bobo6b3o2bo4b2o4b2o2bob2o3bob3ob2ob2ob7o2b4o\$3ob8obo2b2o3b3ob2obo7b4o2b4obobo2b2ob2o6bo\$4obo3bob8o3bo2b2o2b2o2bo2bobo3bo2b2o3b3ob2o2bo3b2o\$2bo2bo3bobob4o3b2o2b3ob2o5b2o2bobo2b5obobobo2bo2b3o\$3bobo2bob2o5b3obo3bob3o3b2o4b2ob3ob3ob3ob6o2bo\$ob7o4b3o3b2o2bo2bo2bob2obob2o3b2obobo3bob2obo2bobo\$2bo2bobob6o5bo2b2ob2ob2o3bob4obo2b3o3b3o2bobob3o\$o4b3o5b2o4b2o4b2obo2b2o2b2o2b3o4b2ob3o2b2obo3b3o\$4o4b3obo5bo3b3obo4b5ob2o3b2ob3o3bobob7obo\$b3ob2o3b3obo3bob3o4b2ob3o4bob2o7b2o2bob3ob2obo\$obobo5bobo5bob4o3b2o2b2o3bobo3b2o4b2ob3o2b2o2bo2bo\$o2bo3bo3bo2bo2b2o4bo2bob2ob4o3b2obo2b2obo2b3o2b2o3b4o\$2bob7o2b2obo3b2ob2obo4b2o3bob4obobobobo2bobo4bob2o\$6b2o2bo4bobo4bo3bobobobo3b2obo2b2o2bo2b6o3b4obo\$4bo4b2o3bob3obo3bo2bobo2bob2o2b3o3b4obob6ob5o\$4ob2o2b5o2b4o2bo2bo2bob6ob2ob2ob2o2bo2bo2b4o2b5o\$7o2b2o2bo2b2obo2bobo2b4ob2ob3o4b4o6b3ob2o3bo\$3bob2o4b5o2b3ob3o2b2o2bobo3bo3b2ob2o4bo2bo2bo2b3obo\$b4ob5ob3o3bob2ob2o2b4ob2ob3o2bobob2ob2o2b3o3b2obob2o\$2o3bobo2b2o4b3o4b3obo3bob4o2bob4o2b2obobo3b2ob3obo\$ob2o4bo3bobobo2bob2obobo3b2o2b2obo2bobo4b2o3bo4bo3bo\$bobobo2bo2b2ob2o2b4ob2obob2o6bob3o5b4obob2obobo3bo\$3obob2o2b3obob2obobob2o2b2o5bo7b4o3bo4bobobo2b3o\$3bobo2bobo3bo4bob3o5bo2b3o2bob2o2b2o4bo5bobob2ob2o\$o2bobobob2o4bo4b5obobobob3ob2o3bob2ob2ob2o3bob2ob5o\$3b3o5b2obo4bobo3bobo2b2obo4bo3b2o3bob6o5b2obo\$5ob2o4b2o3bo7b2ob3obo4b2obobob7ob3obobob4o\$2ob3obo3bob2obob2obob3ob4o3bo2b5o2bo2bo2bo2b3ob2o2b2o!`

Would the singular be SMOI (Spaceship Made Of Itself)?

Impressive! How did you find that and what do you recommend I do to find one?

Can anyone find a SMOI that travels obliquely or diagonally?
My rules:
They can be found here

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Also cross posting this from the SSSSS thread because it's an absolutely insane SMOI (Spaceship Made of Itself, see proof below).
`x = 4, y = 3, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ainbo\$3o\$ob2o!`

Reasons why it's insane:
-It's p8912
-It's a SMOI
-It uses 6 copies of itself at one point
-It makes p158 osc and then destroys it

Proof:
Generation 650 of B-Heptomino (Easiest to see)
`x = 28, y = 72, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain22b2o\$24b2o\$24bobo\$20bo2bo2b2o\$21bo2bobo\$22b3o\$23bo62\$b5o\$2o4bo\$b2o\$2b4o!`

Generation 14 and 16 of B-Heptomino
`x = 17, y = 8, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain2bo10bo\$b3o8b3o\$2obo7bo\$o2bo7b2ob2o\$o2bo6bo2bob2o\$o2bo6bo4bo\$2bo11bo\$13bo!`

Here's the part where it has 6 copies
`x = 76, y = 96, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain25bo22bo\$24bo22b3o\$23bo2bo19b2obo\$23b2o21b2o\$24bo21bo\$12bo33bo2bo\$10bob3o31bo\$14bo33bo\$6bo2b2o3bo\$7b2o2b3o\$b3o6b2o\$bo8b3o2bo\$bo4bo5bob2o\$2bo2bo6bo3bo\$4b2o6bo9\$72bo\$70b4o\$70bob2o\$70bo\$71bobobo\$74b2o\$73b2o\$72b3o21\$28bo\$20bo6bob2o\$26bo3b3o\$19bo13bo\$18b2obo4bo6bo\$19bobobo7b3o\$23b2o2b3obo\$18b3ob2o3bob4o\$18bo2bo6bobobo\$19b3o\$20bo30bo\$50b3o\$50bobo\$46b2obo2b2o\$45bo4bo2bo2\$48b2o12\$2b2ob3o\$2ob3obo\$o2bob2o\$3o\$3bobo\$3bobo\$3b3o\$5bo\$7bo\$3b3o\$4b2o\$4bo3b3o\$2bo5b2o\$4b2ob2o\$2b2o4bo\$5b3o\$6bo!`
