B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky (Diamonds)

B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky seems like a weird mix of a B345 generations rule, and a bubbly LTL rule. You'll probably notice that a tub evolves into a 44-cell diamond still life:

Code: Select all

``````x = 28, y = 13, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky
21bo\$20b3o\$19b2ob2o\$18b2o3b2o\$17b2o5b2o\$bo14b2o7b2o\$obo12b2o9b2o\$bo14b
2o7b2o\$17b2o5b2o\$18b2o3b2o\$19b2ob2o\$20b3o\$21bo!
``````
It is the most common object, followed by the three most common spaceships taking up 2nd, 3rd, and 4th spots:

Code: Select all

``````x = 18, y = 6, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky
o9b2o4bo\$bo9bo5bo\$b2o6b3o4b2o\$2o7bo6b2o\$16bo\$14b3o!
``````
The next 6 spots are these (the leftmost being a very special still life, I'll explain in the puffers section):

Code: Select all

Spaceships

Besides the aforementioned 3 most common gliders, there aren't too many non-c/2 spaceships yet. Ntqfind yielded nothing for c/3, c/4, c/5, and 2c/5. However, there are an extremely high amount of c/2 spaceships. None of them are that interesting by themselves, but this 48c/96 is really sparky:

Remove the diamonds from one or both sides and it will stabilize itself, which may come in handy for some big extensible gun.

Linear Growth

The most common puffer makes the big diamonds at p32:

Code: Select all

``````x = 13, y = 21, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky
9b2o\$10bo\$9b3o\$9bobo\$11b2o\$11b2o\$11b2o\$11b2o\$9bobo\$9b3o\$10bo\$9b2o\$9bo\$
6bob2o\$6bobo\$8bo\$5bobo\$2bo2b2o\$o2bo\$o2bo\$b2o!
``````
Then there's this p108 puffrake, that makes the aforementioned 58-cell still life and a 2c/4:

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 6, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky
b3o\$o2bo\$o\$o\$o2bo\$b3o!
``````
Strangely, it only appears in certain hauls, and bumps the 58-cell still life to a really high rank in the haul. I don't really know the exact reason for this.

There's also a p560 natural 4c/8 spaceship gun:

The diamonds have infinite walls except for the vertices, so they are very strong catalysts. For proof of this rule's probable circuitry, have a c/4->180* c/8

There's probably a microreflector. There's also probably a push and pull reaction. There's also also probably mini-basilisk replicator ships.

This rule is a good find! It's very pretty-looking, has interesting and unusual behaviour, and it looks like it has good potential for engineered patterns, too. Perhaps "DiamondLife" might be a suitable name?

That's one of the names I was considering.

Experimenting, I found a replicator->2(c/4):

Code: Select all

``````x = 20, y = 21, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky

The still life can be shifted up and left one cell and still work, weirdly.

2(c/4) synth of a 20-cell still life:

I'd say the c/8's should be used as the main G(lider), as they are most common, and can reflect themselves:

They can also eat themselves and emerge unharmed.

2G synth of a 16-cell still life:

Re: B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky (Diamonds)

I'd like to look into some catalysts for this rule.

I've named one methuselah, the S. It stands for Pre-[S]huttle, because that's exactly what it is:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 7, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky
2bo\$3bo\$bobo\$2o2bo\$bobo\$3bo\$2bo!

Once it hits around 100 generations it gets pretty hard to control cleanly, but before that it looks like it has a lot of potential.

Question: Is there a way to track which rockets in this rule appear the most frequently?

A bunch of assorted S->D(iamond):

Code: Select all

``````x = 28, y = 100, rule = B2en3ij4a5e7e8/S1c2cek3-a4aiqw5aky

Suggest other methuselahs to name/catalyze! Maybe the failed replicator could yield interesting results.

Not a very interesting post, but I tried using ntgfind on this rule, and it came back with almost nothing. I searched up to the equivalent of w14 for c/4o spaceships with no success. However, I did find some c/3s:

@Kitty Ship definitely isn't new, it's the 6th most common spaceship out of soup. Gun is, though, nice.
@Goldtiger997 nice c/3's!

I don't even know how I would note ships down, that's how many there are.

This may be a candidate for a (5,1)c/18+n knightship:

Here's a monumental failure of apgsearch object separation in this rule: two spaceships 80-odd cells apart getting tagged as one. And this somehow happened four times!

This is definitely an interesting pattern, with a moving replicator interaction that produces lines of spaceships that double in length each time. It's somewhat similar to Nick Gotts's "broken lines" pattern in normal Life, although this one is more regular.
