muzik,

Your post would be more useful if each of the listed rules were pointers to the example patterns. Readers should never be required to search the Forum for referenced material.

Here's a rule with adjustable-speed wickstretchers and adjustable-direction spacefillers:

Found another one by myself. 2c/(4n+2), n>1:
x = 39, y = 4, rule = B2c3acjr4y5ci/S01e2ac3en4n5ij6a

o!


Can we get more people looking for these?

Sorry but apgluxe doesnt support nontot generations yet.

Also, muzik, you haven't addrd the 3 wick-rules I found. I'll link them later when I'm on my computer and not on this tiny screen.

So that's all the 2c/n speeds proven possible then?

There are many more similar ships, even with the same c/2, I've just chosen a set with minimum population of 5 covering all speeds c/n (for n>15).

----

(1,0)c/2n, p(2n), n>=7 (moon bouncer):

I tried to find stable reflectors but didn't have any luck completing a ship with that restriction, so I tried p2 instead.

Edit: Actually, just found one with stable reflectors and smaller minimum population:

(1,0)c/2n, p(2n), n>=6:

This set of adjustable speed spaceships reduces the upper limit on population for all speeds c/n and also 2c/n to 4 cells (given 3 cell examples for all c/n and 2c/n with n < 25 [except 2c/3 which is 4 cells]).

Re: Rules with small adjustable spaceships

Here's something a bit different: a family of c/2 ships with adjustable period and fixed minimum population. They consist of a c/2 diagonal ship bouncing between two c/2 orthogonal ships

(1,0)c/2, p(4n), n>3, 20 cells (except p12 which has min pop 21 in phase 1)
x = 50, y = 17, rule = B2aei3cekq4jknrt5ejkry6-kn8/S1c2-ae3cinqr4aentw5-ackr6ace7c
2bo14bo14bo14bo$2o2bo10b2o2bo10b2o2bo10b2o2bo$2bobo12bobo12bobo12bobo$
o3bo10bo3bo10bo3bo10bo3bo2$obo12bobo12bobo12bobo$3bo14bo14bo14bo$46bo$
3bo14bo14bo14bo$43bob2o$45bo3bo$30bo3bo12bobo$15bo3bo12bobo10b2o2bo$o
3bo12bobo10b2o2bo12bo$2bobo10b2o2bo12bo$2o2bo12bo$2bo!

Finding similar constructions for other periods is more difficult because two different reactions are required. I haven't tried searching for such ships yet, though I can say there are a lot of similar ships to the one above (this is just the smallest I could find). Here's a reflection which restores the diagonal ship after an odd number of generations (again, just one of many):
x = 6, y = 11, rule = B2aei3cekn4ciknqt5cjnqr6in78/S12ci3ceiqr4-acer5cjq6i78
bo2bo$3b3o$obo2bo$3b3o$bo2bo3$bobo$4bo2$4bo!

It's probably feasible to search for compatible pairs of reflections which can bounce the ship with period of 4n+2 (the other reflection has to delay the diagonal ship by 2 gen overall so that it matches speed with the two escorts). I haven't tried this search yet.

Does anybody know what the smallest such ships in Life are? And are there examples with period not divisible by 4?

P.S. Thanks again to Macbi for lls, which is extremely useful in this kind of endeavour.

Generations feels like it has a lot more potential for adjustable-speed technology, with the whole one-way-signal mechanic.

I think it's actually 2c/(4n+6), n≥3; the fastest is actually a 2c/18.

Here's a slightly different set of ships that do travel at 2c/(4n+2), n≥3:
x = 17, y = 63, rule = 12-en3ejnr4r5jry/2c3a4a6ack7e/3

Re: Rules with small adjustable spaceships

There is a chance that adjustable ships may exist in B2a rules:
x = 67, y = 4, rule = B2ae3q/S0
o$4bo9bo5bobobo3bobo3bo3bo3bo5bo3bobobo3bo3bobo$4bo9bo5bobobo3bobo3bo
3bo3bo5bo3bobobo3bo3bobo$o!

This reaction moves at C/7, with replicators and a backend. If someone can find something that can be pushed by the replicators, there might be a new class of adjustable ships.
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
