### Larger Than Life rule: Marine

Marine uses square neighborhood with side length four. Because the side length is even, this means that the cell that the neighborhood is for cannot be in the exact center of the neighborhood, so moving objects tend to travel in one direction, which shall be called downstream. (For the patterns that I shall post, it will be the southeast.) A further description can be found here and in the surrounding posts. Using this neighborhood, the rule is B678S46789.

So far, I have found three spaceships in marine. The most common one, which I have named the squid, travels one full diagonal every three ticks and has reflection symmetry.

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 4, rule = R2,C2,S4,6-9,B6-8,N@03ddef
b2o\$4o\$4o\$b2o!``````
I have named this one the minnow. It has glide symmetry and travels one full diagonal every two ticks.

Code: Select all

``````x = 3, y = 4, rule = R2,C2,S4,6-9,B6-8,N@03ddef
o\$3o\$3o\$b2o!``````
I considered giving this last spaceship its own name, but after some internal deliberation, I decided that it's too similar to the minnow to merit that. Just call it the fat minnow or something.

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 4, rule = R2,C2,S4,6-9,B6-8,N@03ddef
o\$3o\$4o\$b2o!``````

The most interesting part of Marine is its family of failed guns. (I have not finalized a name for them but am leaning toward hydrothermal vent.) They shoot out smoke (which occasionally forms another hydrothermal vent) and spaceships downstream, but most are unstable. Here are some examples:

Marine has a non-centered Moore neighborhood and at least one elementary gun with a very high period (11,843).

For those of you who think in pictures rather than rule strings, here are the Square Cell parameter and options dialogs set for the above rule:

With Square Cell these kinds of rules can be easily explored by changing the number of states, neighbor weights and state weights.

N@03ddef is the neighbourhood specification, overlaid on top of the Moore neighbourhood. 033def is this neighbourhood:

Nice to see that I'm not the only one interested in HROT / LtL with weird neighbourhoods. Also welcome to the forums!
For exploration of this rule I would recommend LifeViewer is it is the fastest. Other options include Java Square Cell (mentioned above) and CAViewer.

It's basically a workaround. My rule uses a square neighborhood with even side length, but LifeViewer only supports square neighborhoods if they're perfectly centered, and only square neighborhoods with odd side length can be perfectly centered. The hexadecimal number is part of a workaround that Moosey gave me.

Does this irregular gun fail?
I tried moving it to near the bottom-right of the map then using the Identify function. It's currently at generation 76,000-something, and the identity function hasn't returned anything yet (although around generation 44,000, the smoke reached the edge before it had separated from the hydrothermal vent, causing the entire pattern to get deleted, so I had to back up a couple of steps, move the pattern farther away from the bottom-right corner, then restart the Identify function, which would probably have interfered with it). Around generation 62,000, it creates two copies of this still life (which I don't think that I saw earlier in the sequence, although I may have missed it), but they get destroyed later.

There are probably other interesting rules with non-centered square or rectangular neighborhoods. This is just the one that I happened to find first.

I played that pattern to about 60,000 generations. At generations 12,000-something, 24,000-something, 36,000-something, 48,000-something, and 59,000-something, there is a close-knit triangle of squids with the single squid on the line of reflection symmetry slightly upstream of the pair of squids, another single squid upstream of the triangle, and another pair of squids downstream of the triangle. This seems to indicate that the pattern becomes a stable gun whose repeat time is between 11,000 and 12,000 generations. Congratulations!

Because the rule doesn't have B4, B3, or birth with less cells in the neighborhood, a population's northward edge can never extend past its initial northward edge. The same thing is true for the westward edge. Therefore, I don't think that spaceships can have any northwards or westwards velocity in Marine. However, spaceships with directions like east or southsoutheast are still theoretically possible.

EDIT: I used the Identify function on the gun mentioned above, and the exact repeat time is 11,843.

Marine has a non-centered Moore neighborhood and at least one elementary gun with a very high period (11,843).
I'm in the process of reducing the glider cost of universal construction.

### Re: Larger Than Life rule: Marine

Those are the strongest sparks that I've ever seen. It's kind of sad that spaceships can't travel upstream to interact with those sparks. However, it might be possible for information to travel upstream by overcrowding a reaction out of a birth somewhere that then causes it to linger for long enough for the next reaction to bump into it, and so on.
@Hunting so we're making a referential signature chain?

The reason that the sparks are so strong is because the neighborhood is non-centered, so junk tends to move downstream. Because of this, while the sparks may seem strong in theory, they aren't strong in practice because they all move downstream in the same way, so it's difficult to make the sparks from two separate sparkers interact.

That is certainly possible, but it would be difficult. Personally, I don't think that attempting to create complicated circuitry in this rule is worth it. If I had been more experienced when I found this rule, I probably would have discarded it due to the restrictions on complex patterns imposed by the lack of upstream-moving spaceships and the difficulty of making two patterns interact without destroying at least one of them.

Chances are that any oscillator with a period of 140 multiplied by a power of two can be created in a similar way.
Marine has a non-centered Moore neighborhood and at least one elementary gun with a very high period (11,843).

### Re: Larger Than Life rule: Marine

I have thought of another idea of implementing logic gates. Do we have any spaceships that don't travel exactly southeast? (I think the fat minnow should get its own name. It's extremely unusual for a spaceship to keep working if you modify its frontend.)
@Hunting so we're making a referential signature chain?

No—or at least, not yet. My best idea for logic gates was finding a way to deactivate a spaceship shifter by hitting the other side with a spaceship. Keep in mind that the directionality of this rule makes logic gates more difficult.

I see your point, but in this rule, the frontend of a spaceship does not affect as much of the spaceship as the backend due to the directionality of the rule. Also, Orion 2 is an example where a spaceship with a different front end but the same backend was not given a unique name.

### Re: Larger Than Life rule: Marine

I found a relative rule to Marine with a slightly different neighborhood called Semi-Aquatic. It has small still lifes, billiard table-like oscillators and four (so far) diagonal ships that with 2 going c/4, 1 going 2c/7 and the other going c/8 (I think).
Here’s the rule:

Code: Select all

``````x = 0, y = 0, rule = R2,C2,S4-6,8-9,B6-9,N@839de7

By scribble, I mean soup searched. I didn't actually scribble, I should've just said that I'd souped it. I took the Marine rule's neighborhood and tweaked it. Still lifes are able to be so small because of the neighborhood's shape:
1 0 0 0 0
0 1 1 1 0
0 1 c 1 1
0 1 1 1 1
0 0 1 1 1
That Northwest corner being included in the neighborhood allows for more stable (less exciting however because this rule is so boring compared to MathAndCode's rule) and simpler patterns to exist, but still going downstream.

The object can be returned to its starting place with other spaceship, so I guess that it can eat a two-spaceship flotilla.

Yeah, there isn't much you can do with the rule, but it is pretty neat to see 2c/7 diagonal

Marine has a non-centered Moore neighborhood and at least one elementary gun with a very high period (11,843).
I'm in the process of reducing the glider cost of universal construction.

### Re: Larger Than Life rule: Marine

Since Marine uses an asymmetric neighbourhood, I have been investigating centered weighted Marine-like rules:

Code: Select all

``R2,C2,S12,16,18-27,B17,19-27,NW1222124442240422444212221``
Much of Marine's dynamics get lost due to the loss of streams.
This rule somewhat resembles a non-explosive Gems with the c/24d:

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 4, rule = R2,C2,S12,16,18-27,B17,19-27,NW1222124442240422444212221
2bo\$o2bo\$b3o\$2bo!
``````
This is a p74:

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 7, rule = R2,C2,S12,16,18-27,B17,19-27,NW1222124442240422444212221
o\$2o\$4o\$b2o\$4o\$2o\$o!
``````
Fronts mainly move at co, although sustained co movement may not be possible.
Each day is a hidden opportunity, a frozen waterfall that's waiting to be realised, and one that I'll probably be ignoring
