### LightShow (345/2-e/3)

Posted: November 2nd, 2018, 6:19 pm
This is a Generations rule that I discovered that is one transition from being totalistic, it is named after large natural objects that show up sometimes:
`x = 32, y = 32, rule = 345/2-e/33.A\$2.A.B\$.3A\$A.A.A.A\$.B.A.A.A2.B\$4.A.5A.BA\$3.A.A.A2.3A\$4.3A.2A.A.A.B\$5.A.A.2A.A.A2.A\$5.A.2A.2A.A.3A.B\$4.B2A.2A.2A.2A.2A.A\$6.2A.2A3.A.2A.A.A\$5.BA.A.A2.A4.A.A.B\$5.A.A.A2.A.A2.A.A.A\$8.A.2A.6A.4A\$7.B.2A3.A2.A2.A.A\$9.A.A2.A2.A3.2A.B\$8.4A.6A.2A.A\$10.A.A.A2.A.A2.A.A.A\$9.B.A.A4.A2.A.A.AB\$10.A.A.2A.A3.2A.2A\$11.A.2A.2A.2A.2A.2AB\$12.B.3A.A.2A.2A.A\$14.A2.A.A.2A.A.A\$16.B.A.A.2A.3A\$19.3A2.A.A.A\$18.AB.5A.A\$21.B2.A.A.A.B\$25.A.A.A.A\$28.3A\$27.B.A\$28.A!`

Chaotic growth starts from as little as two cells, a.la brian's brain:
`x = 1, y = 2, rule = 345/2-e/3A\$A!`

Speaking of that rule, there's the c/4 ship in this rule, although with an infinitely extensible backend:
`x = 8, y = 30, rule = 345/2-e/3.B\$A\$.BAB\$2.A3\$2.B\$.B2.B\$A2.2A\$.BAB\$2.A3\$4.B\$3.A\$2.B2.AB\$.B2.BA\$A2.2A\$.BAB\$2.A3\$5.B\$4.B2.B\$3.A2.2A\$2.B2.AB\$.B2.BA\$A2.2A\$.BAB\$2.A!`

And this weird variant I found:
`x = 6, y = 6, rule = 345/2-e/3.A\$BAB\$3.A\$4.B\$4.2A\$4.B!`

There's also a c/2 diagonal, along with a sparkier interaction, and one possible puffer made from it:
`x = 20, y = 10, rule = 345/2-e/318.BA\$16.B.A\$15.B.ABA\$15.A.2A\$15.B\$4.B8.B\$3.A.A6.A.A\$2.A.B6.A.B\$B.BA5.B.BA\$.3A6.3A!`

But the main attraction is this lightspeed one-dimensional replicator:
`x = 11, y = 12, rule = 345/2-e/3.B\$.A2.B3.A\$.B4.2AB2A\$B5.2AB2A\$4.B3.A3\$4.B3.A\$B5.2AB2A\$.B4.2AB2A\$.A2.B3.A\$.B!`

I'm surprised it even has an endpost, but here you go:
`x = 67, y = 16, rule = 345/2-e/315.A\$14.B.B\$15.B\$.A.A.A3.A.A3.A3.A.A3.A39.A\$3A.ABA.ABA.B.ABA.B.ABA.AB2A36.3A\$.A2.ABA.ABA.B2.B2.B.ABA.AB2A37.A\$5.A3.A2.B2.B2.B2.A3.A\$12.B2.B2.B\$12.B2.B2.B\$5.A3.A2.B2.B2.B2.A3.A\$.A2.ABA.ABA.B2.B2.B.ABA.AB2A37.A\$3A.ABA.ABA.B.ABA.B.ABA.AB2A36.3A\$.A.A.A3.A.A3.A3.A.A3.A39.A\$15.B\$14.B.B\$15.A!`

It could probably be gunned, but save yourself the effort, there are two extremely common guns already:
`x = 8, y = 14, rule = 345/2-e/3.A\$3A\$.A\$2.BA\$2.BA\$.A\$3A\$.A3\$.A4.A\$.6A\$B.A2.A.B\$.A4.A!`

The latter is actually spawned usually from a wickstrecher, which can sometimes have this weird semi-signal on it:
`x = 11, y = 15, rule = 345/2-e/38.BA\$8.BA2\$5.6A\$5.A.AB2A\$4.A3.A4\$.AB5.BA\$.AB5.BA2\$11A\$2ABA.A.AB2A\$2.A5.A!`

Timebomb (starts exploding roundabout 875):
`x = 11, y = 7, rule = 345/2-e/3.AB5.BA\$.AB5.BA2\$11A\$2ABA.A.AB2A\$2.A5.A\$4.A!`

There's also a weird wickstrecher that can have chaos leech onto it:
`x = 23, y = 23, rule = 345/2-e/34.B\$3.A.A\$2.A.B\$B.BA\$.3A16\$21.BA\$20.2BA\$20.2A!`

Longest lasting non-explosive methuselah I've found:
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = 345/2-e/32A\$A.A\$.A!`

Although, this rule is already omniperiodic like most B2 generation rules.

It can make a diagonal gun:
`x = 22, y = 25, rule = 345/2-e/312.A4.A\$11.3A2.3A\$10.A.A.2B.A.A\$9.A.A2.2A2.A.A\$8.3A8.3A\$9.A10.A6\$4.A\$3.3A\$2.A.A\$.A.A\$3A\$.A\$2.BA\$2.BA\$.A\$3A\$.A.A\$2.A.A\$3.3A\$4.A!`

Unfortunately it's not minimal period, that would be 12. Even worse is that it coludn't be made by the standard 2G.

I propose calling that second smallest photon the “Igniter” and the smallest the “Head”

0 deg Igniter to head population 10:
`x = 13, y = 9, rule = 345/2-e/37.A\$6.3A\$.A5.A\$3A\$.A2\$11.AB\$9.AB\$9.AB!`

cis(?) 90 deg igniter to head
`x = 12, y = 3, rule = 345/2-e/3.A8.AB\$3A5.AB\$.A6.AB!`

Igniter 180 degree reflector allows periods 2n for all natural numbers n >= 4

This is my first post, and I have looked at this rule for a while.
Here is a 7-cell clean quadratic growth, which I believe is the smallest.
`x = 7, y = 6, rule = 345/2-e/32A3.2A4\$4.A\$4.AB!`

Furthermore, this sparky spaceship, which I call the Weekender-like spaceship, is a rake stabilized by two sparks into a spaceship.
`x = 19, y = 10, rule = 345/2-e/32.A3.B2.B2.B3.A\$.BAB2.B.B.B.B2.BAB\$A2.3AB5.B3A2.A\$.BAB11.BAB\$2.A6.A6.A\$7.AB.BA\$3.AB3.B.B3.BA\$3.AB.B2.A2.B.BA\$5.ABA3.ABA\$5.2A5.2A!`

I have used it to create a bunch of rakes/breeders, such as
`x = 62, y = 173, rule = 345/2-e/339.B\$38.2A\$39.B.B\$40.A2\$47.B\$47.2A\$45.B2.BA\$41.2A3.A2.AB\$41.2B4.B2.2A\$40.A2.A4.B.B\$40.BA.B5.A\$41.AB\$42.2A\$40.B2.B\$44.A\$44.B\$43.B\$40.B2.2A\$41.B2.BA\$42.A2.AB\$43.B2.2A\$44.B.B\$45.A9\$42.B\$42.2A\$42.B\$40.BA\$38.BA\$36.BA2\$45.A3.B2.B2.B3.A\$44.BAB2.B.B.B.B2.BAB\$43.A2.3AB5.B3A2.A\$44.BAB11.BAB\$45.A6.A6.A\$50.AB.BA\$46.AB3.B.B3.BA\$46.AB.B2.A2.B.BA\$48.ABA3.ABA\$48.2A5.2A\$26.BA\$26.BA\$25.2A\$25.B2\$24.A3.B2.B2.B3.A\$23.BAB2.B.B.B.B2.BAB\$22.A2.3AB5.B3A2.A\$23.BAB11.BAB\$24.A6.A6.A\$29.AB.BA\$25.AB3.B.B3.BA\$25.AB.B2.A2.B.BA\$27.ABA3.ABA\$27.2A5.2A14\$20.2A\$20.2B31\$20.2A\$20.2B31\$20.2A\$20.2B15\$2.A3.B2.B\$.BAB2.B.B.B\$A2.3AB\$.BAB\$2.A6.A6.B\$7.AB.BA4.B.B\$3.AB3.B.B3.B.A5.B2.B2.B3.A\$3.AB.B2.A2.B.BA.BAB2.B.B.B.B2.BAB\$5.ABA3.ABA2.A2.3AB5.B3A2.A\$5.2A5.2A3.BAB11.BAB\$18.A6.A6.A\$23.AB.BA\$19.AB3.B.B3.BA\$19.AB.B2.A2.B.BA\$21.ABA3.ABA\$21.2A5.2A!`

EDIT:
I thought I should say that I have a large collection of stuff in this rule, in case you want more.
EDIT2:
the first rake that travels at c/4 diagonal:
`x = 20, y = 16, rule = 345/2-e/312.B\$11.A\$4.B7.BAB\$3.2A8.A.B\$2.AB\$.BA2.A2.B\$2A2.2B2.2A2.BA.A\$.B.B2.BAB5.BAB\$2.A4.A5.2A\$14.B\$15.BA\$15.B2.AB\$14.B2.BA\$13.A2.2A\$14.BAB\$15.A!`

EDIT3:
Is this type of ship known?
`x = 6, y = 7, rule = 345/2-e/32.AB\$.BA\$2A2.B\$.B\$2.A\$3.BAB\$4.A!`

Another that I doubt is known:
`x = 10, y = 7, rule = 345/2-e/34.B\$3.2A\$2.AB\$.BA2.A2.B\$2A2.2B2.2A\$.B.B2.BAB\$2.A4.A!`

It is an important component of the c/4d rake
EDIT4:
space nonfiller (except for the very center)
`x = 67, y = 76, rule = 345/2-e/351.A\$50.BAB\$49.2A2.A\$48.AB2.B\$47.BA2.B\$50.AB\$52.B\$52.2A5.A4.A\$50.BAB5.BAB2.B.B\$51.A.AB2.2A2.2B2.2A\$58.B2.A2.AB\$63.BA\$51.B.A8.2A\$52.BAB7.B\$55.A\$54.B7\$49.A\$48.BAB\$47.2A2.A\$46.AB2.B\$45.BA2.B\$48.AB\$50.B\$50.2A\$48.BAB\$49.A2\$44.A\$12.B30.B.B3.B\$11.2A32.2A2.A.A4.A\$10.AB33.B4.BAB2.B.B\$9.BA2.A2.B29.B2.2A2.2B2.2A\$8.2A2.2B2.2A2.B29.B2.A2.AB\$9.B.B2.BAB4.B33.BA\$10.A4.A.A2.2A32.2A\$17.B3.B.B30.B\$22.A2\$17.A\$16.BAB\$15.2A\$16.B\$17.BA\$17.B2.AB\$16.B2.BA\$15.A2.2A\$16.BAB\$17.A7\$12.B\$11.A\$4.B7.BAB\$3.2A8.A.B\$2.AB\$.BA2.A2.B\$2A2.2B2.2A2.BA.A\$.B.B2.BAB5.BAB\$2.A4.A5.2A\$14.B\$15.BA\$15.B2.AB\$14.B2.BA\$13.A2.2A\$14.BAB\$15.A!`
