## Merry Christmas!!!

For discussion of other cellular automata.

### Merry Christmas!!!

On the occasion of Christmas I have spent a day of work on writing ruletable which constructs Christmas tree! Green dots are tree itself, red dots are ornaments, gray dots are silver chains, yellow dots is star on top of tree.

### Happy New Year!!!

I know it's a bit too late but I made another rule table. This one makes fireworks in irregular intervals. Table:
`n_states:17neighborhood:Mooresymmetries:nonevar a={0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16}var b={a}var c={a}var d={a}var e={a}var f={a}var g={a}var h={a}1,1,b,c,d,1,f,g,h,01,1,b,c,d,0,f,g,h,00,1,b,c,d,0,f,g,h,10,0,b,c,d,1,f,g,h,13,a,b,c,d,0,f,0,h,73,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,55,a,b,c,d,4,f,g,h,05,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,20,a,b,c,d,5,f,g,h,32,a,b,c,d,e,1,1,1,1616,a,b,c,d,e,f,1,h,164,a,b,c,d,e,f,2,h,24,a,b,c,d,e,f,0,h,02,a,b,c,d,e,6,6,6,42,a,b,c,d,e,16,16,16,62,a,b,c,d,e,2,4,h,416,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,26,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,20,a,b,c,d,0,2,4,2,40,a,b,c,d,e,f,4,0,32,a,b,c,d,4,f,g,h,40,2,b,c,d,e,f,g,4,22,4,b,c,d,e,f,0,h,00,0,7,0,0,0,0,0,0,80,0,0,0,7,0,0,0,0,80,0,0,0,0,0,7,0,0,80,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,7,80,8,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,90,0,8,0,0,0,0,0,0,90,0,0,8,0,0,0,0,0,90,0,0,0,8,0,0,0,0,90,0,0,0,0,8,0,0,0,90,0,0,0,0,0,8,0,0,90,0,0,0,0,0,0,8,0,90,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,8,90,9,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,100,a,9,c,d,e,f,g,h,100,a,b,9,d,e,f,g,h,100,a,b,c,9,e,f,g,h,100,a,b,c,d,9,f,g,h,100,a,b,c,d,e,9,g,h,100,a,b,c,d,e,f,9,h,100,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,9,107,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,08,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,09,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,010,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,011,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,012,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,013,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,014,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,015,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,00,0,10,0,0,0,0,0,0,110,0,0,0,10,0,0,0,0,110,0,0,0,0,0,10,0,0,110,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,10,110,11,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,120,0,11,0,0,0,0,0,0,120,0,0,11,0,0,0,0,0,120,0,0,0,11,0,0,0,0,120,0,0,0,0,11,0,0,0,120,0,0,0,0,0,11,0,0,120,0,0,0,0,0,0,11,0,120,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,11,120,12,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,130,0,12,0,0,0,0,0,0,130,0,0,12,0,0,0,0,0,130,0,0,0,12,0,0,0,0,130,0,0,0,0,12,0,0,0,130,0,0,0,0,0,12,0,0,130,0,0,0,0,0,0,12,0,130,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,12,130,13,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,140,0,13,0,0,0,0,0,0,140,0,0,13,0,0,0,0,0,140,0,0,0,13,0,0,0,0,140,0,0,0,0,13,0,0,0,140,0,0,0,0,0,13,0,0,140,0,0,0,0,0,0,13,0,140,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,13,140,14,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,150,a,14,c,d,e,f,g,h,150,a,b,14,d,e,f,g,h,150,a,b,c,14,e,f,g,h,150,a,b,c,d,14,f,g,h,150,a,b,c,d,e,14,g,h,150,a,b,c,d,e,f,14,h,150,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,14,15`

Seed pattern:
`x = 4, y = 5, rule = Fireworks.B\$.2B\$A2BC\$.2B\$.B!`

State 1 is rule 30 which makes fireworks shot irregular. State 2 is a wire. States 3 and 5 stretches wire, and states 4,6 and 16 are signals along wire. States 7 to 15 are fireworks. If on bottom of rule 30 are 7 on cells in line they create 5 states 16, which create 3 states 6 which creates state 4. If it hits corner of wire it creates another wire-stretcher. When it turns, vertical wire is deleted. When signal reaches stretcher, state 3 is converted into firework. Late Happy New Year!!!

### Fireworks2!!!

A new version of Fireworks! Rule table:

Seed:
`x = 8, y = 4, rule = Fireworks22.F\$.3B\$5B\$5.A.B!`

Can be stacked more than one!
`x = 128, y = 4, rule = Fireworks22.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F7.F\$.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B5.3B\$5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B3.5B\$125.A.B!`

Here all fireworks are ignited from same wire. State 1 is rule 30, state 2 is wire, 3,4 and 5 are signals, 6 and 7 is stretcher and further states are fireworks. Enjoy!

### Re: Merry Christmas!!!

I have to also note there is a CA called Fireworks. It's 2/13/21 and is an exploding rule by John Elliot. It's in Golly under Generations algorithm. Decided to call it New Years Life given the topic instead.

Just thought i'd point it out.

I didn't know that, and thank you for pointing that. I figured out that chaos generator I used in Fireworks (rule 30) can be used in my Christmas rule. Here it is:
`n_states:13neighborhood:Mooresymmetries:nonevar a={0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12}var b={a}var c={a}var d={a}var e={a}var f={a}var g={a}var h={a}0,5,b,1,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,2,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,8,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,9,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,1,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,2,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,8,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,9,h,07,a,b,7,d,e,f,7,h,07,a,b,0,d,e,f,7,h,00,a,b,0,d,e,f,7,h,70,a,b,7,d,e,f,0,h,74,4,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,44,a,b,c,d,4,f,g,h,44,10,b,c,11,e,f,10,11,44,11,10,11,d,e,10,g,h,44,11,10,4,d,e,f,g,h,410,11,10,11,d,e,10,g,h,411,10,b,c,11,e,f,10,11,410,a,b,c,d,4,f,g,h,411,a,b,c,d,4,f,g,h,410,a,10,c,11,e,10,g,11,44,a,10,c,d,e,f,g,11,44,a,11,c,d,e,f,g,10,44,3,b,4,d,e,f,g,h,44,3,b,c,d,e,f,4,h,44,4,b,4,d,e,f,g,h,44,4,b,c,d,e,f,4,h,44,10,b,6,d,e,f,g,h,44,10,b,c,d,e,f,4,h,44,11,b,6,d,e,f,g,h,44,11,b,c,d,e,f,4,h,40,5,5,c,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,5,02,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,02,a,5,c,d,e,f,g,h,102,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,5,118,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,08,a,5,c,d,e,f,g,h,108,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,5,119,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,09,a,5,c,d,e,f,g,h,109,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,5,111,a,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,21,0,0,c,d,e,f,g,0,01,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,88,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,99,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,22,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,30,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,2,10,2,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,10,a,2,c,d,e,f,g,h,10,a,5,3,d,e,f,g,h,50,a,b,c,d,e,f,3,5,55,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,00,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,53,0,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,33,5,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,33,a,10,c,d,e,f,g,h,1011,a,10,c,d,e,f,g,h,103,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,11,1110,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,11,116,7,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,1212,7,7,c,d,e,f,g,7,1212,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,60,12,12,c,d,e,f,g,12,5`

This needs one more state and makes tree thinner and visibly more chaotic. After some generations tree becomes asymmetrical because of states 10 and 11 interactions. Also it uses new seed:
`x = 3, y = 4, rule = Christmas-22.G\$3F2\$.A!`

Also I made another version of Fireworks, which I designed as "combo-breaker". Every time firework is created there is also state 16 created. If wire stretcher hits it state 16 is destroyed. When firework is ignited from this wire it creates 16 a bit higher. States 16 are as high as wirestretchers can reach. Probably they can reach any height. Wires are sometimes cut (when running more than one) from bottom or from top. If they are cut from bottom they are growing indefinitely until another wire reaches this wire. If from top they won't grow for some time
