Here's an oscillator I found this afternoon in B2-a3i4aijk/S2a3-i4.

I'd like to devote a thread to finding stuff in rules such as B2-a3i4aijk/S2a3-i4, B2-a3-in/S2-c3, B2-a3/S1c2a, and other testing rules, since the "Test" thread is getting overcrowded with tests.

Hdjensofjfnen, I have seen your nx1 polyominos that are oscillators (n=12,48,144,432,1296) and, after a quick search, I have found the next values for n=3888, 11664, 34992, 104976, 314928...

Unfortunately, even though it accurately predicts all values in the sequence, the generating function it gives does not match the sequence at all (or I am missing something).

It seems that the "correct" sequence should be 16,48,144,432,1296...
