### Photics I (B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678)

Posted: March 27th, 2018, 4:35 am
I believe I have found a rule that supports photons but doesn't have ridiculously common quadratic growths (they do exist).

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 2, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
o2bo\$b2o!
``````

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 3, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
2bo2bo\$obo2bobo\$b2o2b2o!
``````
What other speeds does this support?

Before I go look for more speeds, have a funny common rake

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 3, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
2bo\$obo3bo\$b2ob2o!
``````

Hm. While it's definitely more stable than, say, Seeds, this rule is still too explosive to be apgsearchable.

Anyone had any luck looking for slower ships?

It's possible to stabilize the quadratic growth imo something microscopic and linear:

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 2, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
o2b2o2bo\$b2o2b2o!
``````

Found another quadratic growth that is either pretty common or I was really lucky to get after only two random patterns (they were fairly large patterns, but still):

Code: Select all

``````x = 19, y = 7, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
5b2o2b2o3b2o\$2b2ob2obo2bobo2bo\$bo15bo\$o4b2o9bobo\$3bob2o3b2o5bo\$9bo3b2o
\$13b2obobo!``````

p5 gun, of the standard variety:

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 4, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
o4bo\$2b2o2\$2bo!
``````
p4:

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 11, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
2b2o\$2b2o\$o4bo3\$o4bo\$2b2o\$2b2o2\$o4bo\$2bo!
``````

Infuriatingly close calls to a reflector.

Some preliminary searches indicate that if there are ships of other speeds, they are enormous.

Very simple breeder seed:

Code: Select all

``````x = 11, y = 1, rule = B2ae4c678/S01e4aeqrtw5678
2ob2ob2ob2o!
