Some really lovely finds by LLS in otherwise boring rules that are so non-explosive that one would assume they do not support spaceships:

Code: Select all

x = 10, y = 10, rule = B2ik3-cjny6-i/S2-n3aeikn4ckqtz5-acy

I'd consider this a soupship since it looks like some kind of random soup in every phase.
EDIT: another ship in a particularly stable rule

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 6, rule = B3aeiqy4-knqtw6ek/S2-en3-ejkr4yz5-knq

To force B1e, do -r pB1e-c2-a345678/S012345678

Or pB1e-c2c-a3i45678/S012345678 for relativistic (non-lightspeed) ships

If I want to force B3, do I have to type out B3aceijknqry?

Searching for (2,1)c/2 up to 11x11 seemed to turn up nothing? Does one exist?

EDIT, (3,2)c/4!:

Code: Select all

x = 2, y = 3, rule = B02aei3-enq4nrz5ijnqr6aek7c/S1c2-an3-ajqy4iknqrty5ijk6ak

Wildmyron and I manage the 5S project, which collects all known spaceship speeds in Isotropic Non-totalistic rules.

Things to work on:
- Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule

I suspect not. I tried up to 32x32, and still nothing.

I'm starting to suspect that any rule that supports expansion at that speed and period is likely explosive, but I haven't managed to prove that yet.

The search pattern above actually consists of four independent quadrants, separated in each generation by two rows and two columns of "don't care" cells that can take any value and don't have to obey the CA rule. So we're effectively looking for a single rule that can support the evolution of each of these independent quadrants under the given constraints.

The top left quadrant of the first generation contains a single live cell, with all dead cells on the rows above it and on the same row to the left of it. It should be fairly evident that any pattern with a finite, non-zero number of live cells always contains a matching subpattern. (Just let the marked live cell be the leftmost live cell on the topmost non-empty row.)

The other three quadrants are the same, but mirrored horizontally and/or vertically; the last generation is the same as the first, but with the cells in each quadrant shifted two spaces right and one down. The generation in between just consists of unknown cell states, except on the edges where we know some of the cells must be live (since all their ancestors are dead, and since we're looking for a B0 rule).

Running this input through LLS with the rule string pB0c12345678/S01234567 gives the following output:

Code: Select all

~/git/logic-life-search$ nice ./lls -r pB0c12345678/S01234567 hyperknight.txt

In effect, this proves that there is no isotropic CA rule where the ends of the top/bottom row of any pattern could both advance, retreat and move sideways at (2,1)c/2. Which proves that there cannot be any spaceship with that period and speed.

Ps. I suspect the search pattern above is actually bigger than necessary, and that some of the rows and/or columns could probably be removed, and some named cells replaced by asterisks, while still leaving the pattern unsatisfiable. If sufficiently thus reduced, one might even be able to extract a short human-readable proof of why no isotropic rule can support (2,1)c/2 spaceships from it.

EDIT 2: Here's a simplified version of the search pattern above that's still unsatisfiable:

It appears that the statement that rules with S0123 cannot have spaceships is false.
Other than AbhpzTa's counterexample, I found more.

It was only ever true for entirely outer-totalistic rules anyway (in particular, for rules without B2a or B3a, which, if outer-totalistic, excludes all non-B0 rules with spaceships).

Can someone make this a rule with a sub c/2 spacefiller? I'd love to see a dynamic where a pond makes a spacefiller that eventually gets destroyed by the simple c/2 photon in this rule

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 24, rule = B2e3i4qrw5ac6ekn7e/S1c2-ai3-eik4acw5ak7e8

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't B3a alone also insufficient for a rule to have spaceships (at least one of B2a, B2e or B3i would also be required)?

But none of those would be allowed in totalistic rules, since B2a would disallow the whole B2, and B3a would disallow B3. B1e wouldn't work since B1c explodes in all directions, so the statement still stands strong.

Oh, I see, an outer-totalistic rule with B3a would automatically also have B3i, so an outer-totalistic rule with B3a (or, more simply, a B3 rule) would be able to have spaceships. It's just that the original phrasing of your statement (outer-totalistic rules without B2a or B3a, which are designations used for non-totalistic rules) confused me because of its contradictory nature.

a simple replicator, a relative of the b-heptomino:

What is 4c/8 (or 8c/16) spaceship?

Ruler Sequence replicator from Platoon. Discovered a while ago, but a post in the copypaste thread reminded me of it.

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 2, rule = B2cek3i/S12-ak
