Oscillating stilllife rule becomes a bit more interesting
I made a nontotalistic rule I called Still Blinking, the rulestring is B3a4ejw5cky6n/S234a5a8 and it is designed to make some common stilllives from Life become period2 oscillators. My signature shows the patterns I chose to make oscillate (EDIT: it does not anymore). When I was messing around with ransom soups with this rule I found more oscillators! I don't think there are any spaceships in this rule but feel free to try to make one, if you do succeed please reply with a RLE containing the spaceship(s) you found (EDIT: spaceships are proven impossible in this rule). I don't know what the purpose of this post was other than to get the world to know this rule's existence. Here's the Catagoule page for this rule
Here is the RLE file with the intended oscillators:

Re: Oscillating stilllife rule becomes a bit more interesting
You could simply have pasted the pattern as a code block directly in your post, like this:
(Even though it's in your signature.)
Code: Select all
x = 25, y = 17, rule = B3a4ejw5cky6n/S234a5a8

Re: Oscillating stilllife rule becomes a bit more interesting
An efficient way to do this would be to get someone to run a few Catagolue hauls for you in this rule  it looks to be eminently apgsearchcompatible, but it looks like no one has submitted any hauls yet. Catagolue can almost certainly find objects faster than you can, and will automatically tabulate them for you, keep track of the periods, see if any spaceships or puffers or other weirdandinteresting things show up, and so forth.cvojan wrote:Here's a stamp collection of all the oscillators I have found so far...

(Or install apgsearch yourself, of course.)

Re: Oscillating stilllife rule becomes a bit more interesting
I dont know if you know this or not, but this rule does not have any spaceships because no pattern can escape it's bounding diamond.
For a rule to have spaceships:
B2e+B3i
B2c+B3a
B2ec
B3ai
B2a
B1e, but no B1c
B0

BlinkLife Research thread
Somehow I want to call this rule BlinkLife, and here:
Oscillator
There's a Glidesymmetry oscillator(which is interesting!) period 18 which is the highest record of nontrivial oscillator period in BlinkLife.
I'm suprised that this p6 oscillator haven't been noticed.I recommend to call it "Arhra" because it's apgcode is 4arhra4.

Yes, it is useful! See if you can find a signal turner...Layz Boi wrote:
