### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

A 'mirrored' triangle:
`x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai5e6n/S1e2ace3-acjk4tbo\$bo3\$3o!`

something related:
`x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai5e6kn7c8/S1e2ace3-acjk4tbo\$bo3\$3o!`

This one is also interesing:
`x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai6i/S1e2ace3-acjk4tbo\$bo3\$3o!`

I don't recognize this class

`x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j2b2o\$b2o\$2o!`

it replicates, every 8 generations, into 3 copies, one forward, 2 sideward. collisions result in mutual destruction.
it seems to be a hybrid between quadruple replicators and sierpinski generators...

It replicates, but once 4 of them are far enough apart it makes a phase shifted replicator in the middle that eventually destroys a third of the replicators' children. After that, it has 4 replicators on 4 corners of a rhombus, that do in fact behave as class Q, albeit on a slightly larger scale.

### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

Do these two class-U replicators follow an identical replication sequence? I'm finding it difficult to figure out.
`x = 5, y = 6, rule = B35a6ae78/S232bo\$b3o\$o3bo\$obobo\$bobo\$2bo!`

`x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2-ek/Sobo2\$obo2\$4bobo2\$4bobo!`

We still have this class to name:

### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

I think that would be another class U. It's clearly fractal-based, as can be seen most clearly at generations 2^n - 1 for integer n, but I don't think that fractal has a name.

### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

Ah, I suppose that five-way replicator sort of counts, though it's not a symmetrical pentagon. That other replicator seems like another class U (it's simulating a sort of a fractal, similar to but different from the Sierpinski carpet).

And that fractal also has an intricate pattern of lines going between the squares.

Interesting, the only debris it leaves behind is a single tub in the middle. Other than that, it's completely clean.

I accidentally found this:
`x = 4, y = 4, rule = B3-n4a/S1e2-a3ijnrbo\$3o\$2b2o\$2bo!`

The rule is a exploding rule...

After some random works, I ended up with this Class F(?)
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3-n4a/S1e2-ak3ijnr3o\$obo\$3o!`

A mesmerising and beautiful pattern, and I love how it's almost a replicator made of spacefillers. I guess it's more class A than class D, though I find it a bit hard to distinguish those two.
The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 221,000 spaceships. Tabulated pages up to period 160 are available on the LifeWiki.

### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

I suppose a class A stops replicating and turns into another pattern, and a class D continues replicating at its outer edges but leaves behind chaos in its centre, but even the OP doesn't really make this distinction clear - the second posted class D looks like it could be class A. The first example class D suggests it's supposed to be a sort of "class F but messier".

ain't this more of a "explosion" rule than a actual replicator

That's just a sawtooth. The number of replicator cores does not get larger.
