Arrow (B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n)

Postby 77topaz » May 2nd, 2018, 7:53 pm

This rule has a family of adjustable-speed rakes (3c/(12n+6) orthogonal, n≥6):
x = 135, y = 27, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
4bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo$4bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13b
o13bo13bo3$2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o
5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o5b2o2$4bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo$4bo13bo
13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo13bo4$3b3o$4bo12b3o$18bo12b3o$32bo12b3o$
46bo12b3o$4bo55bo12b3o$4bo13bo55bo12b3o$18bo13bo55bo12b3o$32bo13bo55bo
12b3o$46bo13bo55bo12b3o$60bo13bo55bo$74bo13bo$88bo13bo$102bo13bo$116bo
13bo$130bo!


These make use of somewhat Snowflakes-esque push and pull reactions, and like Snowflakes, the spaceships can "pass through" each other. Here is an example of square root bounding box growth:
x = 38, y = 3, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
19bo$2o16b2o16b2o$19bo!


These ships can be reflected in various ways, two of which are illustrated below; the right-hand one also functions as a period-doubling mechanism.
x = 37, y = 5, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
35b2o$2o5bo$4b2obo26b2o$2o5bo$35b2o!


CGoL's c/4 diagonal glider is a c/2 orthogonal spaceship in this rule:
x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
bo$2bo$3o!


There are also 10c/20 spaceships, the most common of which is the following:
x = 8, y = 15, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
b3ob3o$o$o3bobo$3o5$b2o2$2o$bo$3o$obo$3o!


Apart from the adjustable-speed rakes, there is also this c/4 backrake:
x = 5, y = 6, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
2ob2o$obobo$b3o2$2bo$2bo!


This backrake can be tethered. In the following pattern, the tether is broken by stray gliders after about 25000 generations, creating an interesting ripple effect in the backrake's output:
x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
2b3obo2bo2b2obo$5o3bo2bo2b2o$b2o2bo3b4ob2o$o2bo3bo2b2o3bo$2ob6o6bo$bo
4bobo4b2o$3b10obo$2bob2ob2ob2obobo$4obo2bo2bobobo$o3bo2b2ob5o$ob3obob
2o4bo$ob3obob2o5bo$o3b3obo2bob3o$o3b2o2bo2bob2o$bo2b4obobob3o$obobo3bo
b5o!


There are also various small c/2 orthogonal puffers:

x = 9, y = 8, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
7bo$7b2o$7bo$o2bo2bo$o2bo2b2o$o2bo2b3o$6bobo$8bo!


x = 15, y = 14, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
bo3bo$3ob3o$3b3obo$13bo$9bo2b3o$8b3o$9bo3$4b3o$4bobo$4b2o$6bo$6b3o!


x = 7, y = 7, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
b2o$2bo$2bo3bo$2bobobo$2bo3bo$2bo$3o!


x = 7, y = 16, rule = B3-jkn4a/S1e2-a3ijnry4n
bo3bo$3ob3o$b3o11$4b3o$6bo$5bo!


The name "Arrow" is derived from "adjustable rake rule" and inspired by names like Turro.

Nice find on the p11! That other pattern could be considered a variant of the square root bounding box growth pattern in my first post.

You don't say. The "ends" of the shuttle pretty much define it.

2b4o$4b3o$4b2o$3o$bo$6b3o$5b3ob3o$6bo3bo!


Also, I think there's a good chance this rule is omniperiodic, as there are shuttles of periods 16+4N, 23+4N and 57+4N (the fourfold shuttle with the small lake), leaving just one family of extendable shuttles (4N+2) plus a finite number of lower periods to be found.

Nice! It's a track that's not reburnable, but not that far from it either - I wonder if waveguides could be used (as with AbhpzTa's gun) to stabilise that track and allow the creation of loop oscillators?

b5obo!


EDIT: Some clarifying information: this pattern features a long line of t-ships with a reflector (part of a backrake's disturbed output) pushing a single domino for about 50k generations until it reaches a pair of dominos to create another reflector, finally stabilising the ships into an oscillator.

The ripple effect is in fact a t-ship travelling through an opposite-direction t-ship stream. It goes through without being altered in any way.

Indeed, and in the example in the OP it's a stream from a backrake hitting a reflector and thus passing back through itself; a long chain of the ripples in your example is created, because you have two continuous streams in opposite directions passing through each other.

Those p4 and p6 mechanisms were known from Catagolue, but I suppose no-one posted them in this thread before.

I feel like the 'passing through' mechanism could be used to make really cool constructs while only using one channel instead of a reflector loop.

Impressive! :D I think the T-to-2T in particular could be used to create another family of adjustable-period oscillators, by placing four of them in a loop and eating the second T so the mechanism acts as a Snark. Would that allow all oscillators periods greater than 40, or would it still be limited to a subset?

Also, leaving one or more of the second Ts uneaten would give a family of adjustable-period guns.

A new puffer:

It has a period of 8, making it the shortest-period puffer known in Arrow so far.
