- Speed Demonoids allow every possible diagonal speed.
Orthogonoids can also allow every possible orthogonal speed.
For oblique speeds, a macro-spaceship can theoretically be built if there is an appropriate helix.
Also, adjustable oblique spaceships might also allow every possible oblique speed -- I see no theoretical difficulties, and I believe that such a family of adjustable oblique ships will very probably exist, just that no-one has built it yet.

Well, we definitely don't know of ships at all speeds, particularly not unsimplified as you stated (this rules out the macro-spaceships mentioned in the above post); but a proof of the nonexistence of a spaceship at a specific unsimplifed speed with the conditions you stated would be highly nontrivial (unless you count (0,0)c/n, though if you consider that a valid velocity for spaceships then it seems strange to say that oscillators aren't spaceships because they're called something else ).
By the way, in the future you might want to ask similar questions in the dedicated thread.

Indeed, there are rules where it is undecidable whether a spaceship of that unsimplified speed exists. (proof: have the top row be the starting configuration of a universal Turing machine with the numbers a and b written somehow; the top row moves up a cells then waits b generations and further rows move up whenever they have room, provided that they locally correspond to the evolution of the Turing machine) Needless to say, Life is probably not one of these rules, but the fact that these rules exist suggests that without explicitly coming up with a ship or showing that all branches of the search reach dead ends, it will be very hard to reason one way or another.Moosey wrote: ↑June 10th, 2021, 5:42 pma proof of the nonexistence of a spaceship at a specific unsimplifed (sic) speed with the conditions you stated would be highly nontrivial
