## Explateral - B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a

For discussion of other cellular automata.

### Explateral - B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a

Originally created so that this common pattern evolves into something similar nine generations on:
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-ab3o\$o3bo\$o3bo\$o3bo\$b3o!`

There are basic ships:
`x = 13, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a2bobo\$o5bo\$11b2o\$b2ob2o5bo\$3bo5b3o!`

Is this rule of any interest?

The common pattern is actually a failed replicator (see generation 31).

A 4c/8 spaceship (there are a few more common diagonal and 2c/4 ones):
`x = 7, y = 8, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a3bo\$bo\$bo2bo\$o\$b2o\$bobo\$5b2o\$5bo!`

Speaking of replicators, I found a zz_REPLICATOR when trying to apgsearch this but it froze afterwards. I'm going to retry and hopefully it'll pop up again so we can see what exactly it is.

EDIT: Turns out it's just a chaotic growth rather than an actual replicator.

The zz_REPLICATOR is a diagonal symmetry-explosion, which is something I hadn't seen before:
`x = 6, y = 6, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a3o\$obo\$3o2\$4bo\$5bo!`

Similarly to the orthogonal symmetry-explosions you see in rules like Wild Seas, it stabilises quickly if it hits an asymmetry:
`x = 61, y = 75, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a3o\$obo\$3o2\$4bo\$5bo68\$60bo\$59bo!`

another 4c/8 orthogonal spaceship
`x = 6, y = 9, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7cS2-an3-ao\$3o\$4bo\$bo2b2o\$5bo\$bo2b2o\$4bo\$3o\$o!`

2c/4 orthogonal spaceship
`x = 7, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-ab6o\$6bo\$o4b2o\$5bo\$2b2o!`

Here are a couple oscillators and stuff:

A few hand-drawn p2s.
`x = 32, y = 32, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-abbobbb5bbbo5bbbooo\$bobbbb5bbob5bbbbob\$bbbobb5bbbb5bbobbb\$bobobb5booo5bobbbb\$obboob5bbob5b\$bbbbbb5bbbb5b\$bbobbb5bbob5b\$bbobob5booo5bbobbb\$boobbo5bbbb5bbbobb\$bbbbbb5bbob5bbbbbb\$bbbobb5bbbo5bobboo\$bobobb13bbobob\$obboob\$bbbbbb\$bbobbb\$bobbbb5\$bbbbbbobb5bbbbbbobbbb\$bbbbbbbob5bbbbbobbbbb\$bbbbbobbb5bbbbbbbbbbb\$bbobobbob5bbbboooobbb\$booboboob5bbobobbobob\$bobbobbob5bobbobbobbo\$bbbbobbbb5bbbboooobbb\$bbobobobb5bbbbbbbbbbb\$boobobooo5bbbbbobbbbb\$bobbobbbb5bbbbbbobbbb\$bbbbobbbb5b\$bbbbbbobb5b\$bbbbbbbob5b\$!`

An extendable p14.
`x = 16, y = 32, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-abbbbbbbo\$bbbbbbob\$bbobbbbb\$bbbbobbb\$bobbobbb\$bbooobbb\$bbbbbbbb\$obbbbbbb\$bobbbbbb\$bbbbbbbbbbbob\$bbbbbbbbbbbbo\$bbbbbbbbbbbbb\$bbbbbbbbobbbb\$bbbbbbboboobb\$bbbbbboooobbb\$bbbbobbbobbbb\$bbboooobbbbbb\$bboobobbbbbbb\$bbbbobbbbbbbb\$bbbbbbbbbbbbb\$obbbbbbbbbbbb\$bobbbbbbbbbbb\$!`

Some simple p4s.
`x = 8, y = 32, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-abbbbbbo\$bbbbbob\$bbbbbbb\$bbboobb\$bbbobbb\$bobbbbb\$obbbbbb4\$bobbbb\$oobbbb\$bbobbb\$bbbboo\$bbbbob4\$oooo\$bbbb\$bbbb\$oooo\$!`

Failed replicator (look at generation 18).
`x = 4, y = 8, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a b3ob\$bobob\$2ob2o\$bobob\$b3ob\$!`
