Worth noting:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 4, rule = B3/S23-y4w
o\$2o\$2bo\$b2o!
EDIT: (4,3)c/20

EDIT:
Unrelated p98:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 5, rule = B2i3/S23-r
2o\$2bo\$3bo\$2bo\$2o!
Interesting:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 4, rule = B2i3/S23-r
b3o\$o2bo\$o2bo\$3o!

FattyLife analogs for the short ships:

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 4, rule = B34n5r6en/S1e2-a34e
b2o\$2ob4o\$b6o\$2b4o!

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 21, rule = B3-ekq/S02-c3
bo2bo\$o\$o3bo\$4o4\$3bo\$bo3bo\$o\$o4bo\$5o5\$3b2o\$bo4bo\$o\$o5bo\$6o!
(Note that all the ships are p8, just like the original)

Speaking of FattyLife, adding B3n preserves the OWSS and the apgsearchability while adding the glider:

Code: Select all

x = 13, y = 11, rule = B34nt5qr6i/S23
3o\$o\$bo4\$8b3o\$6bo5bo\$5bo\$5bo6bo\$5b7o!
EDIT: Cross of regular FattyLife and the second rule above, oddly increasing the MWSS period to 16:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 31, rule = B3-ekqr4nt5r6i/S02-c3
bo2bo\$o\$o3bo\$4o5\$3bo\$bo3bo\$o\$o4bo\$5o5\$3b2o\$bo4bo\$o\$o5bo\$6o5\$3b3o\$bo5bo
\$o\$o6bo\$7o!
Removing B3n reduces the MWSS period to 8, but there is no more glider.

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j
2b2o\$b2o\$2o!

Are there any rules in which the doubled form of an RRO appears in soups? I'm guessing that would be a tough one for apgsearch to separate!

Apgsearch specifically doesn't separate oscillators sharing a common envelope (even if they do not directly interact) to allow RRO-combinations to be found and logged under the lower period.

Removing B3n reduces the MWSS period to 8, but there is no more glider.
That rule also features another mangled (O)WSS, this one with period 4:

An example in C1(!):
https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... j6es2-i34i
https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... j6es2-i34i

Apg-search does not seperate the RROs. It just divides the period by its fold.

Of particular interest is the adjustable, statorless gun, the smallest of which is shown above. The period is 44 + 4n for n ≥ 0, and the mod is 22 + 2n. This gun is shown below for n = 0, 11:

Code: Select all

It becomes clear that the gun utilizes an over-unity reaction that sends the incoming ships back. This is reproduced below:

### Re: Miscellaneous Discoveries in Other Cellular Automata

I don’t know what this pattern should be classified as. It travels on its own trail, creates a dot, and then travels backwards to create another dot. The population seems to increase slower and slower. I’m not sure if this has already been discovered.

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 2, rule = B2-a5/S034

The population of the pattern increases in a way that is proportional to the square root of the time. So these patterns are called sqrt-growth. This is a very nice example!

It's a simple-but-nontrivial 2-state 2-symbol Turing machine. Nice discovery!

Yes, nice! Works in rules: B2ceik5iry/S03aeijnqry4eq - B2ceikn3ck4cnqyz56aekn78/S02en345acijknqr678

#C Bounded tapes = infinitely many oscillator periods
