### Explateral - B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a

Posted: October 22nd, 2018, 8:31 am
Originally created so that this common pattern evolves into something similar nine generations on:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
b3o\$o3bo\$o3bo\$o3bo\$b3o!
``````
There are basic ships:

Code: Select all

``````x = 13, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
2bobo\$o5bo\$11b2o\$b2ob2o5bo\$3bo5b3o!
``````
Is this rule of any interest?

The common pattern is actually a failed replicator (see generation 31).

A 4c/8 spaceship (there are a few more common diagonal and 2c/4 ones):

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 8, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
3bo\$bo\$bo2bo\$o\$b2o\$bobo\$5b2o\$5bo!
``````

Speaking of replicators, I found a zz_REPLICATOR when trying to apgsearch this but it froze afterwards. I'm going to retry and hopefully it'll pop up again so we can see what exactly it is.

EDIT: Turns out it's just a chaotic growth rather than an actual replicator.

The zz_REPLICATOR is a diagonal symmetry-explosion, which is something I hadn't seen before:

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 6, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
3o\$obo\$3o2\$4bo\$5bo!
``````
Similarly to the orthogonal symmetry-explosions you see in rules like Wild Seas, it stabilises quickly if it hits an asymmetry:

Code: Select all

``````x = 61, y = 75, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
3o\$obo\$3o2\$4bo\$5bo68\$60bo\$59bo!
``````

another 4c/8 orthogonal spaceship

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 9, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7cS2-an3-a
o\$3o\$4bo\$bo2b2o\$5bo\$bo2b2o\$4bo\$3o\$o!``````
2c/4 orthogonal spaceship

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 5, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a
b6o\$6bo\$o4b2o\$5bo\$2b2o!``````

Here are a couple oscillators and stuff:

A few hand-drawn p2s.

Code: Select all

``````x = 32, y = 32, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a

An extendable p14.

Code: Select all

``````x = 16, y = 32, rule = B2e3aijkq4a7c/S2-an3-a

Some simple p4s.

Failed replicator (look at generation 18).

Code: Select all
