## Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

For discussion of other cellular automata.

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

This is a great question!

Yeah, something like that but maybe with a slightly larger separation.

Yeah, that. I suggest calling these SMOTs. (Spaceships Made of Themselves)

Or, depending on how you classify it, a very strange failedrep.

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Here's another attempt, in this one the ships can actually arrive in their correct position from infinity.
`x = 4, y = 23, rule = B2cei3aejy4ijk5cijnq6ci7/S12an3i4iknyz5cj6a2bo\$2o20\$b2o\$3bo!`

Nice rule too.

Impressive! How did you find that and what do you recommend I do to find one?

Can anyone find a SMOI that travels obliquely or diagonally?

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Also cross posting this from the SSSSS thread because it's an absolutely insane SMOI (Spaceship Made of Itself, see proof below).
`x = 4, y = 3, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ainbo\$3o\$ob2o!`

Reasons why it's insane:
-It's p8912
-It's a SMOI
-It uses 6 copies of itself at one point
-It makes p158 osc and then destroys it

Proof:
Generation 650 of B-Heptomino (Easiest to see)
`x = 28, y = 72, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain22b2o\$24b2o\$24bobo\$20bo2bo2b2o\$21bo2bobo\$22b3o\$23bo62\$b5o\$2o4bo\$b2o\$2b4o!`

Generation 14 and 16 of B-Heptomino
`x = 17, y = 8, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain2bo10bo\$b3o8b3o\$2obo7bo\$o2bo7b2ob2o\$o2bo6bo2bob2o\$o2bo6bo4bo\$2bo11bo\$13bo!`

Here's the part where it has 6 copies
`x = 76, y = 96, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain25bo22bo\$24bo22b3o\$23bo2bo19b2obo\$23b2o21b2o\$24bo21bo\$12bo33bo2bo\$10bob3o31bo\$14bo33bo\$6bo2b2o3bo\$7b2o2b3o\$b3o6b2o\$bo8b3o2bo\$bo4bo5bob2o\$2bo2bo6bo3bo\$4b2o6bo9\$72bo\$70b4o\$70bob2o\$70bo\$71bobobo\$74b2o\$73b2o\$72b3o21\$28bo\$20bo6bob2o\$26bo3b3o\$19bo13bo\$18b2obo4bo6bo\$19bobobo7b3o\$23b2o2b3obo\$18b3ob2o3bob4o\$18bo2bo6bobobo\$19b3o\$20bo30bo\$50b3o\$50bobo\$46b2obo2b2o\$45bo4bo2bo2\$48b2o12\$2b2ob3o\$2ob3obo\$o2bob2o\$3o\$3bobo\$3bobo\$3b3o\$5bo\$7bo\$3b3o\$4b2o\$4bo3b3o\$2bo5b2o\$4b2ob2o\$2b2o4bo\$5b3o\$6bo!`

Another asymmetric SMOS, c/15o:
`x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2ek3eiqy4rt5cr78/S1c2-in3qr4w5iqry4bobo\$4bobo\$5bo2\$2o\$bo\$2o!`

A curious 2c/50o that moves backward:

This rule is not apgsearchable, but the minimal rule is.

-It uses 6 copies of itself at one point
-It makes p158 osc and then destroys it

Proof:
Generation 650 of B-Heptomino (Easiest to see)
`x = 28, y = 72, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain22b2o\$24b2o\$24bobo\$20bo2bo2b2o\$21bo2bobo\$22b3o\$23bo62\$b5o\$2o4bo\$b2o\$2b4o!`

Generation 14 and 16 of B-Heptomino
`x = 17, y = 8, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain2bo10bo\$b3o8b3o\$2obo7bo\$o2bo7b2ob2o\$o2bo6bo2bob2o\$o2bo6bo4bo\$2bo11bo\$13bo!`

Here's the part where it has 6 copies
`x = 76, y = 96, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain25bo22bo\$24bo22b3o\$23bo2bo19b2obo\$23b2o21b2o\$24bo21bo\$12bo33bo2bo\$10bob3o31bo\$14bo33bo\$6bo2b2o3bo\$7b2o2b3o\$b3o6b2o\$bo8b3o2bo\$bo4bo5bob2o\$2bo2bo6bo3bo\$4b2o6bo9\$72bo\$70b4o\$70bob2o\$70bo\$71bobobo\$74b2o\$73b2o\$72b3o21\$28bo\$20bo6bob2o\$26bo3b3o\$19bo13bo\$18b2obo4bo6bo\$19bobobo7b3o\$23b2o2b3obo\$18b3ob2o3bob4o\$18bo2bo6bobobo\$19b3o\$20bo30bo\$50b3o\$50bobo\$46b2obo2b2o\$45bo4bo2bo2\$48b2o12\$2b2ob3o\$2ob3obo\$o2bob2o\$3o\$3bobo\$3bobo\$3b3o\$5bo\$7bo\$3b3o\$4b2o\$4bo3b3o\$2bo5b2o\$4b2ob2o\$2b2o4bo\$5b3o\$6bo!`

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

A rather borderline case, where the spaceships collide 2 generations after the spark disappears:
`x = 6, y = 6, rule = B2in3-cn4cqrwyz5cqry6ci7c8/S2ace3-cqr4-aktz5ar6ai73b3o\$4bo2\$o\$2o\$o!`

It travels at 3c/669d.

EDIT: Why did this get overlooked?
`x = 3, y = 9, rule = B2ce3y4ez/S12ae3aiq4ejt5ar6n7e2bo\$obo6\$obo\$2bo!`

EDIT2: There's even a SMOSMOS, c/151d:
`x = 14, y = 14, rule = B2cek3q4ey5a6k7c/S12ae3a4acnqtz5aeqy6cei7e86bo5bo2\$5b2o5b2o3\$2bo\$obo6\$obo\$2bo!`

EDIT3: The above rule also has an OMOSMOS, which is period 162:
`x = 17, y = 9, rule = B2cek3q4ey5a6k7c/S12ae3a4acnqtz5aeqy6cei7e82bo11bo\$2o13b2o6\$2o13b2o\$2bo11bo!`
`x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j2b2o\$b2o\$2o!`

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Arguably the first knightship SMOI ever found, by Saka in November 2017:

That that is, is. That that is not, is not. Is that it? It is.
A predecessor to my favorite oscillator of all time:
`x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i4b3o\$6bo\$o3b3o\$2o\$bo!`
