This rule is like another rule previously posted, but with S4q added. It was originally discovered to contain a small, diagonal spaceship, namely the ant, but it has so much more. Here's a common, sparky p23:

Code: Select all

`x = 34, y = 7, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

There's probably a gun to be made, but I unfortunately could not find one.

This p6 is also 785 times more common because of a small predecessor:

Code: Select all

`x = 4, y = 5, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

Along with the previous rule's replicator, this one has a new additional replicator, whose speed is 21c/48 instead of 11c/25:

Code: Select all

`x = 3, y = 15, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

Here are some natural spaceships, of speeds c/4, 2c/8, 2c/48, and 11c/50 diagonal, as well as 3c/6 and 11c/25 orthogonal:

Code: Select all

`x = 59, y = 116, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

There's a small c/4 diagonal wickstrecher:

`x = 6, y = 18, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

Along with various puffers at the speed of either of the replicators, there's an 8c/106 diagonal block puffer:

Code: Select all

`x = 24, y = 22, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

As for unnatural technology, here's a p200 ant gun:

A component (which can probably be adapted to add boats, tubs, loaves, beehives, etc):

Code: Select all

`x = 13, y = 14, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`

It is also worth noting that due to -B3n and +S4t, this rule's ants can eat eachother from the side:

Code: Select all

`x = 15, y = 7, rule = B3-n4w/S23-r4qt`
