### Knyght (B2e3/S23-jq)

This rule is named after its incredibly simple (2,1)c/9k knightship, shown here:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
b2o\$2obo\$3b2o\$bob2o\$b3o!
``````
It is natural, and it's not the only small spaceship, there are more, of speeds c/2o and 3c/8o:

Code: Select all

``````x = 16, y = 51, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
4bo9b2o\$5bo9bo\$4bo9b2o\$2o\$bo\$14b2o\$15bo\$14b2o2\$12b4o\$15bo\$4bo9b2o\$5bo\$
4bo\$14b2o\$15bo\$12b4o2\$12b4o\$15bo\$14b2o3\$14b2o\$10bo4bo\$10b6o2\$10b6o\$10b
o4bo\$14b2o3\$15bo\$13b3o\$13b3o\$15bo3\$15bo\$13b3o\$13b3o\$15bo\$13b2o3\$13b2o\$
15bo\$13b3o\$13b3o\$15bo\$13b2o!
``````
There's a common weakly sparky p30:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2bo\$o\$2o\$2b2o\$4bo!
``````
Guns couldn't be made with it no matter how hard I tried. However, there was another oscillator I found by hand, also p30:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 7, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
o\$bo\$4bo\$3bo\$4bo\$bo\$o!
``````
Doubling it up makes a neat p8 too:

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 7, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
o12bo\$bo10bo\$4bo4bo\$3bo6bo\$4bo4bo\$bo10bo\$o12bo!
``````
I found a splitter reaction with the symmetric p30, phase-preserving too, and used it to make this: A p120n, four barreled gun. It can make p60n and p30n when doubled and quadrupled up:

Code: Select all

``````x = 39, y = 39, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
9bo3bo\$8bo5bo\$11bo2\$10bobo\$11bo3\$37bo\$38bo\$34bo\$33bo2bo\$34bo\$38bo\$37bo
2\$11bo\$10bobo\$10bobo6\$bo\$o\$4bo\$2bo2bo\$4bo\$o\$bo3\$27bo\$26bobo2\$27bo\$24bo
5bo\$25bo3bo!
``````

Code: Select all

``````x = 39, y = 39, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
9bo3bo\$8bo5bo\$11bo2\$10bobo\$11bo3\$37bo\$38bo\$34bo\$33bo2bo\$34bo\$38bo\$37bo
2\$11bo\$10bobo\$10bobo2\$26bobo\$26bobo\$27bo2\$bo\$o\$4bo\$2bo2bo\$4bo\$o\$bo3\$
27bo\$26bobo2\$27bo\$24bo5bo\$25bo3bo!
``````

Code: Select all

``````x = 39, y = 39, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
9bo3bo\$8bo5bo\$11bo2\$10bobo\$11bo3\$37bo\$38bo\$20b2o12bo\$22bo10bo2bo\$20b2o
12bo\$38bo\$37bo2\$11bo\$10bobo\$10bobo2\$26bobo\$26bobo\$27bo2\$bo\$o\$4bo12b2o\$
2bo2bo10bo\$4bo12b2o\$o\$bo3\$27bo\$26bobo2\$27bo\$24bo5bo\$25bo3bo!
``````
And a two glider synthesis for the big, sparky T glider leads to this:

Code: Select all

``````x = 83, y = 42, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
24bo5bo\$25bo3bo2\$27bo25bo3bo\$27bo24bo5bo\$26b3o26bo2\$54bobo\$o54bo\$bo\$5b
o\$3b3o75bo\$5bo76bo\$bo76bo\$o76bo2bo\$78bo\$26b3o53bo\$26bobo52bo2\$55bo\$54b
obo\$54bobo3\$38bo\$37bo\$33bo\$33b3o9bo\$33bo10bo\$37bo10bo\$38bo7bo2bo\$48bo\$
44bo\$10b3o32bo\$11bo\$11bo\$71bo\$9bo3bo56bobo\$8bo5bo\$71bo\$68bo5bo\$69bo3bo
!
``````
I'm sure more guns could be discovered, via glider synthesis, and new oscillators.

A reaction to make the big bulky asymmetric glider:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2o\$bo\$2o\$4bo\$3bo!
``````
There's still the fact that we don't know how to eat the photon, desirable would be a p1 eater, although p2 would be fine, too.

Puffers are pretty decently plentiful in this rule. Here's a T-rake:

Code: Select all

``````x = 3, y = 12, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
bo\$2bo\$bo7\$bo\$2o\$bo!
``````
And an omgwtfbbq puffer:

Code: Select all

``````x = 3, y = 13, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
o\$bo\$o8\$2bo\$b2o\$2bo!
``````
Most puffers made from 'extending' photons don't work, S3-q is to blame, however, there's at least one that manages to survive long enough to create a p52 puffer:

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 7, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2b2o\$3bo\$4o2\$b3o\$o2bo\$2b2o!
``````
There's also a p46 puffer, although if you go this far pretty much anything could be made a puffer, kind of like the line puffers from CGoL:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 15, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
3b2o\$4bo\$3b2o2\$b4o\$4bo\$5o\$o\$bob2o\$o3bo\$5o2\$b4o\$4bo\$3b2o!
``````
Bonus fun p2:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2bobo\$obobobo\$b2ob2o2\$b2ob2o\$obobobo\$2bobo!
``````

There's a script that should generate ruletables for any non-totalistic isotropic rule in this format but you don't need it if you get the latest version of Golly.

### Re: Knyght (B2e3/S23-jq)

Bumping this thread because I think this rule will be easy to do things with. Also I just got my computer back and I've been itching to search.

bullet+2 blocks=2 bullets:

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 10, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2o\$bo\$2o2\$10b2o\$10b2o3\$12b2o\$12b2o!
``````
The second block can be moved down 9n cells:

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 19, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2o\$bo\$2o2\$10b2o\$10b2o12\$12b2o\$12b2o!
``````
Interesting T slowdown:

Code: Select all

``````x = 23, y = 14, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
obo17bobo\$bo19bo11\$3b2o\$3b2o!
``````
T+2 blocks=(one time-)reflected T:

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 7, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
12b2o\$12b2o\$2o\$3o\$2o\$12b2o\$12b2o!
``````
I found another one of those bullet-based spaceships. I am referring to these are bullet trains (I think that's a bit clever). This one's p12:

Code: Select all

``````x = 10, y = 15, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
8b2o\$9bo\$8b2o\$b2o3bo\$3bo3b3o\$o8bo\$o2b7o2\$o2b7o\$o8bo\$3bo3b3o\$b2o3bo\$8b
2o\$9bo\$8b2o!
``````
An example of how messy this rule can be:

Code: Select all

``````x = 47, y = 19, rule = B2e3/S23-jq
2b2o\$o2bo\$b3o2\$4o\$3bo\$2b2o6\$45b2o\$43bo2bo\$44b3o2\$43b4o\$46bo\$45b2o!
``````
No p1 eaters, unfortunately... I tried common constellations of blocks but no luck. There aren't many still lifes in this rule.
