Not sure if this p8 with min population of 20 is known:

Nice! How did you find them?

M. I. Wright wrote:The p8 is neat, was it found with a search program?

Some time ago I was working on a version of apgsearch for non-totalistic rules. It's been unused for a while but I thought I should dust it off for this rule. In particular, the addition of searching in symmetrical soups found the p8 as well as a few other oscillators with D4 symmetry.

There are still quite a few issues with searching non-life rules that I don't know how to deal with. This has deterred me from posting a version of the search tool publicly, but I would like to work through some of these and get a version out there. I hope to post more details on the

Hacking apgsearch thread soon [No guarantees]. In the meantime, some more results posted below.

Will do.

Thanks for the link. I updated the collection with the skewed variant of the 2c/4 and updated it again to switch the rule back to tlife. I also added a separate collection for diagonal ships - currently c/4 only.

Here are some results from soup search. I've also adapted a version of rgsearch to this rule and some of those results are included as well.

**Natural objects from soup:**
All three small gliders from one soup

Code: Select all

```
x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3_S2-i34q

One of the p160 dual t-ship guns (not surprising that they appear considering how common the p160 oscillator is)

Shillelagh (appears in ~1 in 10,000 soups):

A new(?) c/5 - two interacting t-ships:

```

The interaction is extensible. I guess you could say the t-ship is a tagalong for itself.

**Glider syntheses:**
4G - alternative eater synth, cis-mirrored R-loaf, twit, interacting t-ships

5G - alternative synth for 18-bit SL, p6 oscillator, very long boat, canoe, very^3 long ship

6G - shillelagh

7G - half-bakery, 11-bit SL

8G - p6 c/3 ship, block with two tails, 15-bent-paperclip, another 18-bit SL

12G - carrier siamese carrier

Code: Select all
