x = 9, y = 3, rule = 238/346/3
.A5.A$A.A3.A.A$.A5.A!
```

I realized that the only 3 stable objects in here are blocks, boats, and beehives, there are no oscillators or ships either.( I'm pretty sure)

This rule is interesting especially because of its ALMOST exploding tubs, and whenever a pattern is about to die out, a tub usually appears and explodes outwards until its debris destroys it, for example, this 8 cell pattern lasts for 8400+ gens.
I need a name for this rule as well, anyone have any suggestions?

Interesting...

Only symmetrical methusaleh seems to work, sinc the tubs need symmetry.

Why not "symmetrical chaos"?

Also, there's anothe still life: the long ship also works

EDIT: the best methusaleh seem to have one, and only on symmetry axis.

here's a 45K long 3 tubs interaction

Gliders explode the same way as tubs.

I'm surprised nobody's found a spaceship by putting something behind the tub yet, but I think it's possible

I've explored the related rule 238/3478/3, which I've dubbed "tubnificent".TWLife wrote:I need a name for this rule as well, anyone have any suggestions?

Yours seems to have a slightly smaller basic explosion — how about something like "tubstellation"?
