c/7 diagonal spaceship

For discussion of specific patterns or specific families of patterns, both newly-discovered and well-known.

c/7 diagonal spaceship

Here is a c/7 diagonal spaceship found using WinLifeSearch:
`x = 26, y = 26, rule = B3/S2312b3o\$12bo\$13bo2b2o\$16b2o\$12b2o\$13b2o\$12bo2bo2\$14bo2bo\$14bo3bo\$15b3obo\$20bo\$2o2bobo13bo\$obob2o13bo\$o4bo2b2o13b2o\$6bo3bo6b2o2b2o2bo\$2b2o6bo6bo2bo\$2b2o4bobo4b2o\$9bo5bo3bo3bo\$10bo2bo4b2o\$11b2o3bo5bobo\$15bo8b2o\$15bo4bo\$14bo3bo\$14bo5b2o\$15bo5bo!`

The wings at the front were found with a short, wide search, and their small,
versatile connection to other components prompted me to find a bilaterally
symmetric, long, narrow completion, much in the way that Hartmut Holzwart did to
find his small c/6 orthogonal spaceship (see 56P6H1V0).

Re: c/7 diagonal spaceship

Just to re-iterate, I'm amazed: omega+13th spaceship velocity so far...
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

Re: c/7 diagonal spaceship

That's a really neat engine. It looks fairly synthesizable, actually. Also, I wouldn't be surprized if a smaller one-engine stabilization turns out to exist…

Re: c/7 diagonal spaceship

Congratulations!

Are you going to name it?

I'm sure this is quite trivial, but I think it is neat that two or more can be placed close enough together to form pseudo-spaceships, and pairs can be in synch, or out of synch like this:

`x = 43, y = 43, rule = B3/S2321bo5bo\$21b2o5bo\$24bo3bo\$22bo4bo\$17b2o8bo\$18bobo5bo3b2o\$23b2o4bo2bo\$19bo3bo3bo5bo\$26b2o4bobo4b2o\$22bo2bo6bo6b2o\$17bo2b2o2b2o6bo3bo\$18b2o13b2o2bo4bo\$23bo13b2obobo\$22bo13bobo2b2o\$22bo\$23bob3o\$24bo3bo\$9b2o14bo2bo\$3b3o5bo\$5bo3b2o16bo2bo\$bo3b6o17b2o\$bo5b2o20b2o\$b3o5bo3b2o10b2o\$3bo3b3o2bo2bo9b2o2bo\$3b2ob2ob2o2bo2bo13bo\$3b2obo2bo7bo4b2o4b3o\$ob2ob4o5bob2o4b2o\$ob2o3bo7bob3o\$bo15bo2bo4bo\$6bo11bobo2b3o\$5bobo12bo3bo\$5bo3bo12bo\$6bo3bo\$7bobo\$8b4o\$10bobo\$10bo\$11b3o2\$8b2o4bo\$8b2o2bo\$12b2o\$11b2o!`

I look forward to the first orthogonal c/7 ship!

Those two are not connected/interacting with each other at all

Regardless, this is an amazing discovery!

Since they travel only one cell away from each other in one spot, I thought they form a pseudo-spaceship just as two blocks which are one cell away form a pseudo-stilllife. If that was a late-night mistake, I apologize, and in any case, I don't want to distract from Skowe's discovery!

You can place two orthogonally symmetric patterns one cell away and they will never interact, as the rule (B3/S23) doesn't have B2, B4, B6 or B8.

Re: c/7 diagonal spaceship

Here's an extension of the spaceship with the wings being used as pushalongs:
