Sticky: a 4 state isotropic photon-based Moore rule

Postby Redstoneboi » September 10th, 2018, 10:42 pm

This is Sticky, a rule named so for the blocks sticking to the photons.
It's a rule designed to be Turing-Complete (TC) and Construction Universal (CU).

This is the rule table.
As you've seen in the subject and the table, it has 4 states, uses a Moore neighborhood, and works the same way rotated and mirrored.

There are ways to move blocks around, and reflect bullets.
Here are some examples:

INTERACTIONS
This section shows how photons interact with blocks.
Time stamps (because LifeViewer can’t use custom rules):
At generations:
    15-18: Photon splits in 2.
    28-32: A photon gets eaten.
    34-37: Photon gets reflected 90 degrees clockwise, left to up.
    49-52: Block “sticks” to photon, gets moved 1 cell, and destroys the photon.
x = 83, y = 74, rule = Sticky

Funny how LifeViewer thinks Sticky means B/S4, I don't know the exact reason why.
Can someone explain that?

Nice.
I think in LifeViewer "Sticky" means B/S because

Gun:
x = 5, y = 5, rule = Sticky
.A$2.BCA2$A$3.A!


Large enough random fields produce natural guns among the debris that make more guns from the debris. Results in a complex system of feedback loops.

Wick:
x = 4, y = 67, rule = Sticky
2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$
2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.B$2.C3$2.BA$2.B!


Another wick:
x = 15, y = 72, rule = Sticky
6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.C3$6.B$6.

$6.C2$5.A$7.A!


Ditto. Looks to be extensible:
x = 17, y = 4, rule = Sticky
11.A$BC2.BC2.BC2.BC$12.3A$10.A!

I’m aiming for minimum population here, though.
also, we don’t need a slow salvo, we just need to place blocks, which speeds up construction!

Loop based constructor. We’re getting closer to a full replicator, which was my goal from the beginning! :)
PARTS
bottom: loop
top leftmost: rising/falling edge detector
middle top left: multiplexer
middle top right: output aligner
top right most: universal constructor
x = 64, y = 32, rule = Sticky
25.A23.A$24.A25.A2$5.A7.A21.2A.2A4.A$4.A9.A19.A10.A2.A.A$27.A7.A3.A2.
2A.A.A3.A$12.A13.A10.A3.A4.A2.A$12.A12.A10.A6.A$12.A15.2A10.A2.A$12.A
13.2A11.A3.2A18.A$12.A16.A13.A$12.A14.2A14.A$12.A28.A4.A$.A26.A13.2A.
A$A13.A22.A7.A$13.A24.A5.A$3.A$A5.A$.A3.A$39.A7.A$40.A5.A7$27.A$2.ACB
2.CB2.CB2.CB5.CB2.CBA2$2.A4.BC5.BC2.BC5.BC.A$3.A23.A!

HOW IT WORKS
Let’s start with
the Loop,
    which contains all the information the machine will use to construct objects.
    The spacing of the bullets dictates which instruction it represents.
    It then splits the data and sends it to
the Rising/Falling Edge Detector (RFED),
    which is really just a double AND NOT gate with a delay on one end.
    It detects whether a stream of closely spaced bullets (1 bullet/4 cells) starts (rising edge, outputs top) and falls (>1 bullet/7 cells) (falling edge, outputs right), and outputs it to
the Multiplexer (mux),
    which is an elongated AND gate with multiple outputs.
    It detects the timing of the bullets coming in from both inputs (like Banks IV) and sends it to the proper output, which will then be aligned by
the Output Aligner (aligner),
    which just uses reflectors to align the outputs for
the universal constructor (UC),
which has 4 inputs:
    The top input generates a block to be pushed into the correct location.
    The mid-top one pushes the elbow block forward 1 cell.
    The mid-bottom one pulls it back 1 cell.
    The bottom one fires a bullet upwards from the elbow block.
These commands are enough to construct any pattern of blocks, and shoot at it from any location at the bottom.

Can someone write a Lua script to convert a pattern into a loop based c arm above?

HUGE update to the rule, there are some new collisions and features that are simply gonna change the rule completely.

New features demo:

B: 90 degree off color block synthesis, as if there weren’t enough construction methods!
C: Color changing prisms!
x = 20, y = 10, rule = Sticky
