Line cut/connect reaction?

Is there a reaction to cut a stable gap with at least 5 diagonal squares of breathing room, and then another reaction to fill it back in, in a long snake such as this one? x = 66, y = 68, rule = B3/S23 2o$o$bo$2bo$3bo$4bo$5bo$6bo$7bo$8bo$9bo$10bo$11bo$12bo$13bo$14bo$15bo$ 16bo$17bo$18bo$19bo$20bo$21...

CA spaceship lookup database?

What was that database where you'd enter the rule and it would tell you what known spaceships exist in said rule?

Re: Star Wars Rule

Okay, I get b0, b1, and b2 now. I understand c as well. We require a binary counter to find b0, b1, and b2. Can we read it as of now? Can we clear it? And can we make it count up x times and stop? That's what I assume we'll need. But what about c' = b1 AND NOT(b2) AND (b0 OR c)? It seems to be missi...

CA that behave similar to 2x2

I've noticed that many rules, including those that normally explode, emulate a different CA on a 2x2 grid. An example is B34678/S012458, where normal patterns simply blow up, while on a 2x2 grid it emulates some CA where everything usually dies down... x = 298, y = 256, rule = B34678/S012458 296b2o$...

Re: Star Wars Rule

Using the extensible diamond technology this should be easily possible for both spaceships and puffers.

By the way, are there any known spacefillers in Star Wars? If not, a diamond configuration that emits an array of pluses or an extensible still life might be an example.
