Generations meets MilhinSA

Post by Pteriforever » April 18th, 2013, 4:17 am

I just came up with this somewhat interesting rule while messing around.

It's fairly straightforward:

--Cells that turn on must stay on for at least one more generation.
--Cells that turn off must stay off for at least three more generations.
--Other than that, it's just B3S23.

.table file:

Code: Select all

n_states:6
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:permute

var a={1,3}
var b={1,3}
var c={1,3}
var d={1,3}
var e={1,3}
var f={1,3}
var g={1,3}
var h={1,3}

var j={0,2,4,5}
var k={0,2,4,5}
var l={0,2,4,5}
var m={0,2,4,5}
var n={0,2,4,5}
var o={0,2,4,5}
var p={0,2,4,5}
var q={0,2,4,5}

var s={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var t={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var u={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var v={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var w={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var x={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var y={0,1,2,3,4,5}
var z={0,1,2,3,4,5}
0,a,b,c,j,k,l,m,n,3
3,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,1
1,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,s,2
1,a,b,c,d,s,t,u,v,2
2,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,4
4,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,5
5,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,0
Here's my recommended .colors file, but it's really up to you:

Code: Select all

color=0 0 0 0
color=1 255 255 255
color=2 255 0 0
color=3 0 128 255
color=4 170 0 0
color=5 85 0 0
Stationary objects are mostly uninteresting. The only oscillator I'm aware of is a p6 version of the beacon which helpfully cycles through every state. Oddly, these two still lifes now show up rather often:

Code: Select all

#CXRLE Pos=-13,-11
x = 14, y = 6, rule = b3s23mmg:T1000,1000
11.2A$3.2A5.A2.A$2.A2.A3.A.2A$.A2.2A2.A.A$A7.A.A$2A7.A!
More worthy of attention are the naturally-occurring puffers. Both orthognal (at c/2) and diagonal (at 3c/116) puffers can generate from random starting configurations; the only nearby rules I've looked at which do this are B38S23 (which is close enough to be for most purposes the same rule) and B3S237.

This is the diagonal one:

Code: Select all

#CXRLE Pos=-9,-14
x = 4, y = 4, rule = b3s23mmg
2A$A$CBAE$.2A!


There are many similar orthogonal ones, here is an example:

Code: Select all

x = 6, y = 8, rule = b3s23mmg
2.CA$2.2AD$CA2E$ABE$ABE$CAD2A$2.CA.A$4.2A!
It occasionally takes the form of this unusually large spaceship:

Code: Select all

#CXRLE Pos=-5,-28
x = 43, y = 20, rule = b3s23mmg

This has to be one of the strangest things I've ever seen. If you put a block next to an ordinary 3c/116 diagonal puffer like this, it becomes a c/15 orthogonal puffer:

Code: Select all

x = 31, y = 5, rule = b3s23mmg
