B3456/S235678/9

This is a totalistic Generations rule with some very interesting behaviour. In particular, it has some very high-period natural guns.

This one is p8009 (a prime number!):

Code: Select all

``````x = 17, y = 17, rule = 235678/3456/9
7.3A\$7.3A\$4.HG5AGH\$3.11A\$2.H11AH\$2.G11AG\$2.13A\$17A\$17A\$17A\$2.13A\$2.G
11AG\$2.H11AH\$3.11A\$4.HG5AGH\$7.3A\$7.3A!
``````
And this one is p16725:

Code: Select all

``````x = 19, y = 19, rule = 235678/3456/9
9.B\$5.A2.CBC2.A\$2.15A\$2.15A\$2.15A\$.4A.3A.3A.4A\$2.15A\$2.5A.3A.5A\$.C15A
C\$2B3A.3A.3A.3A2B\$.C15AC\$2.5A.3A.5A\$2.15A\$.4A.3A.3A.4A\$2.15A\$2.15A\$2.
15A\$5.A2.CBC2.A\$9.B!
``````
There are also natural c/10 wickstretchers:

Code: Select all

``````x = 40, y = 40, rule = 235678/3456/9
19.2A\$16.D.A2DA.D\$15.A2EF2AF2EA\$14.AF8AFA\$14.G10AG\$13.GH10AHG\$14.H10A

10AHG\$14.G10AG\$14.AF8AFA\$15.A2EF2AF2EA\$16.D.A2DA.D\$19.2A!
``````
There are several natural spaceships, such as this 6c/12:

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 9, rule = 235678/3456/9
2.C\$.DE3A\$FH2E2B\$G.2HAD2A\$3.HFDBA\$.E.2FABA\$.DF2C2A\$2.BCA\$3.A!
``````
This 3c/13:

Code: Select all

``````x = 11, y = 3, rule = 235678/3456/9
.H3.2A.2A\$G4.ABAGFA\$.H3.2A.2A!
``````
This 12c/24:

Code: Select all

``````x = 12, y = 12, rule = 235678/3456/9
6.B\$5.CD2A\$4.EG2D2A\$4.F.2GACA\$7.GEC2A\$5.G.CE2A\$5.EHADA\$5.FEBA\$H.F.AE
3A\$G.2G3A\$.FEF\$2.E!
``````
And this 30c/60:

Code: Select all

``````x = 9, y = 18, rule = 235678/3456/9
2.D.A\$.EFBAB\$G.2F2CA\$H3.BE2A\$4.GEC2A\$3.DGACA\$.2H2E2B\$GH2EABA\$DEF2D2A\$
DEF2D2A\$GH2EABA\$.2H2E2B\$3.DGACA\$4.GEC2A\$H3.BE2A\$G.2F2CA\$.EFBAB\$2.D.A!
``````
There are also a variety of high-period oscillators, such as this p11:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = 235678/3456/9
2.A\$.3A\$5A\$.3A\$2.A!
``````
p13:
