After seeing WireWorld and a variant Bliptile I thought it would be interesting to explore a family of wire automata that all share similar properties.

-All family members have 3 states: A wire, an electron head, and an electron tail.

-An electron head always becomes an electron tail.

-An electron tail always becomes a wire.

-A wire becomes an electron head if it is surrounded by an exact number of neighbors.

The rule is formatted (neighbors)(neighborhood) (V=Von Neumann, M=Moore, H=Hexagonal, T=triangular...)

WireWorld is then 12M. Bliptile is 1V.

Edit: The convention for state numbering-

State 1: Electron head

State 2: Electron tail

State 3: Wire
