### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

This is a great question!

Code: Select all

``````x = 2, y = 3, rule = B2ce3aekqy4-acjt5-nqry6-e7e8/S012aei3-akny4cejkrwy5ekqy6ikn7c8
o\$bo\$bo!

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Yeah, something like that but maybe with a slightly larger separation.

Yeah, that. I suggest calling these SMOTs. (Spaceships Made of Themselves)

Or, depending on how you classify it, a very strange failedrep.

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Here's another attempt, in this one the ships can actually arrive in their correct position from infinity.

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 23, rule = B2cei3aejy4ijk5cijnq6ci7/S12an3i4iknyz5cj6a

``````
Nice rule too.

Impressive! How did you find that and what do you recommend I do to find one?

Can anyone find a SMOI that travels obliquely or diagonally?

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Also cross posting this from the SSSSS thread because it's an absolutely insane SMOI (Spaceship Made of Itself, see proof below).

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 3, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain
bo\$3o\$ob2o!
``````
Reasons why it's insane:
-It's p8912
-It's a SMOI
-It uses 6 copies of itself at one point
-It makes p158 osc and then destroys it

Proof:
Generation 650 of B-Heptomino (Easiest to see)

Code: Select all

``````x = 28, y = 72, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain
22b2o\$24b2o\$24bobo\$20bo2bo2b2o\$21bo2bobo\$22b3o\$23bo62\$b5o\$2o4bo\$b2o\$2b
4o!
``````
Generation 14 and 16 of B-Heptomino

Code: Select all

``````x = 17, y = 8, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain

``````
Here's the part where it has 6 copies

Code: Select all

``````x = 76, y = 96, rule = B2in3aijqr4cikqtz5r6n7c8/S2aek3-ae4eiy5ceinr6ain

Here's one that is asymmetric:

It travels backwards at c/44 diagonal. The rule also has a 5c/34d.

The latest edition of new-gliders.db.txt and oscillators.db.txt have 31150 spaceships and 1205 oscillators from outer-totalistic rules. You are invited to help!

It's 9c/805d.

Code: Select all

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Another asymmetric SMOS, c/15o:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2ek3eiqy4rt5cr78/S1c2-in3qr4w5iqry
4bobo\$4bobo\$5bo2\$2o\$bo\$2o!

A curious 2c/50o that moves backward:

Code: Select all

2bo\$obo\$b2o3\$b2o\$obo\$2bo!

This rule is not apgsearchable, but the minimal rule is.

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j
2b2o\$b2o\$2o!

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

A rather borderline case, where the spaceships collide 2 generations after the spark disappears:

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 6, rule = B2in3-cn4cqrwyz5cqry6ci7c8/S2ace3-cqr4-aktz5ar6ai7
3b3o\$4bo2\$o\$2o\$o!
``````
It travels at 3c/669d.

EDIT: Why did this get overlooked?

``````x = 3, y = 9, rule = B2ce3y4ez/S12ae3aiq4ejt5ar6n7e
2bo\$obo6\$obo\$2bo!

EDIT2: There's even a SMOSMOS, c/151d:

EDIT3: The above rule also has an OMOSMOS, which is period 162:

Arguably the first knightship SMOI ever found, by Saka in November 2017:

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

Cross-posting my 2c/318d:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2kn3-nq6i/S23-aeny4iknqtz
obo\$3o3\$5b2o\$5bo\$5b2o!``````
Adding S6ae makes it a rake:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2kn3-nq6i/S23-aeny4iknqtz6ae
obo\$3o3\$5b2o\$5bo\$5b2o!
``````
While adding S5n6ac gives another rake:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2kn3-nq6i/S23-aeny4iknqtz5n6ac
obo\$3o3\$5b2o\$5bo\$5b2o!
``````
Yet another rake:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 7, rule = B2kn3-nq6i/S23-aeny4iknqtz5in6-ik
obo\$3o3\$5b2o\$5bo\$5b2o!
``````
Compare with this:

I'm not even quite sure how to describe the behaviour of the ship. It's kind of like a failed replicator. It's essentially a forward c/2 ship puffer, but because the engine is also c/2 it interferes with itself - and it does so in a quite complicated way which ultimately results in all the puffer output being cleaned up.
This is great. Here's a RMOS for it:

Code: Select all

``````x = 23, y = 23, rule = B3-cnqy4ej6c7c/S2-i3-aky4-ajkqw5cj6aci7c8
20b3o\$20b3o\$21bo18\$2o\$3o\$2o!
``````
Note that it's a rake made of spaceships in one phase, and then in a later phase it's also made of a different kind of spaceship.
EDIT: In the second rule above there's a reflectorless rotating gun:

Code: Select all

``````x = 137, y = 114, rule = B2kn3-nq6i/S23-aeny4iknqtz6ae

### Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)

I'm running two searches simultaneously.
This 2c/2100d works by shooting three 4c/76o and colliding them:

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 14, rule = B2i3-ek4-aitwz5k6n8/S23-a4ity5e6n
3b3o10\$b2o\$ob2o\$o2bo\$3bo!
``````
This 7²c/7³d shoots three pairs of c/2 but two just get too close:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2kn3-n4cet5jr6e/S2-c3-aekn4einq5cnr6-kn
bo\$3bo\$o\$4bo\$2bo!
``````

IIRC, we came close but no one actually managed to find/create one (on this forum)

@GUYTU6J: Both those SMoSs are fascinating. Good luck with the searches.
The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 226,000 spaceships. There is also a GitHub mirror of the collection. Tabulated pages up to period 160 (out of date) are available on the LifeWiki.
