FishLife (B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3)

Postby 77topaz » January 12th, 2019, 2:32 am

This rule is originally a variant of FattyLife (B3-n4nt5qr6i/S23), but adds the glider and numerous mangled-WSS ships that weren't in the original rule. So many, in fact, that I decided to name the rule FishLife (as WSSes were once referred to as fishes).

The original posts on the rule from the Miscellaneous Discoveries thread:

Removing B3n reduces the MWSS period to 8, but there is no more glider.


That rule also features another mangled (O)WSS, this one with period 4:

In addition, it is worth noting this rule has one of the highest objects/sec (as opposed to soups/sec) searching speeds I've ever seen with apgsearch - comparable with regular B3/S23, which has numerous rule-specific speedups in the code itself.

It seems there's a techonology that "signals" travel through barber and creates barberpole.

It seems like a one-dimensional CA of sorts (first I thought it was XOR, but it's more complicated than that), except there's two "layers" of such 1D CAs interacting. It's a definitely unusual behaviour which I haven't seen in other rules before.

A pair/flotilla of fishes that, unlike the other flotillas that have appeared on Catagolue, are not individually/separately stable:

This rule's lightweight, heavyweight and overweight emulators (the middleweight one is unstable):
x = 39, y = 4, rule = B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3

And a weird oscillator that contains half of such an emulator:
x = 9, y = 5, rule = B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3

Catagolue hasn't found any more single-WSS ships despite the rule now having the second-most objects on Catagolue of any isotropic non-totalistic rule (!), suggesting there isn't such an infinitely extendable family, though flotillas of multiple fishes have appeared. Indeed, a simple attempt to extend this OWSS (the longest one) results in the ship simply shedding the extra weight:
x = 25, y = 15, rule = B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3
5bo17bo$bobo15bobo$4bobo15bobo$o3bo13bo3bo$4bobo15bobo$o3bo13bo3bo$4bo

3o17bo$19bo2bo$20b3o!


Interestingly, around generation 66 there briefly appears a WSS-front heading in the opposite direction to the rest of the ship. Were the earlier debris not present, it would evolve into a second fish:
x = 7, y = 13, rule = B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3

Nice! At p84 (mod 42), that one's noticeably more complex than the ones found by apgsearch so far.

It was basically a flotilla of an owss, so you can probably find more of the kind by looking for flotillas.
