OCA:HighLife/List of common spaceships

This is a list of the most common spaceships in HighLife, specifically Catagolue's B36/S23/C1 census. The patterns in this table beyond row 5 are only approximately ranked, as they all occur very infrequently so it is difficult to generate accurate estimates of their occurrence. The approximate relative frequency column gives an estimate of the proportion of all randomlyoccurring spaceships that will be of the given type.
