This rule is originally a variant of FattyLife (B3n4nt5qr6i/S23), but adds the glider and numerous mangledWSS ships that weren't in the original rule. So many, in fact, that I decided to name the rule FishLife (as WSSes were once referred to as fishes).
The original posts on the rule from the Miscellaneous Discoveries thread:

Removing B3n reduces the MWSS period to 8, but there is no more glider.
That rule also features another mangled (O)WSS, this one with period 4:

In addition, it is worth noting this rule has one of the highest objects/sec (as opposed to soups/sec) searching speeds I've ever seen with apgsearch  comparable with regular B3/S23, which has numerous rulespecific speedups in the code itself.

It seems like a onedimensional CA of sorts (first I thought it was XOR, but it's more complicated than that), except there's two "layers" of such 1D CAs interacting. It's a definitely unusual behaviour which I haven't seen in other rules before.

This rule's lightweight, heavyweight and overweight emulators (the middleweight one is unstable):

And a weird oscillator that contains half of such an emulator:

Catagolue hasn't found any more singleWSS ships despite the rule now having the secondmost objects on Catagolue of any isotropic nontotalistic rule (!), suggesting there isn't such an infinitely extendable family, though flotillas of multiple fishes have appeared. Indeed, a simple attempt to extend this OWSS (the longest one) results in the ship simply shedding the extra weight:
Code: Select all
x = 25, y = 15, rule = B3ekqr4nt5r6i/S02c3

Interestingly, around generation 66 there briefly appears a WSSfront heading in the opposite direction to the rest of the ship. Were the earlier debris not present, it would evolve into a second fish:
Code: Select all

Nice! At p84 (mod 42), that one's noticeably more complex than the ones found by apgsearch so far.

It was basically a flotilla of an owss, so you can probably find more of the kind by looking for flotillas.
