2. For a SMOS made of a SMOS, we would need a "very natural" SMOS that is versatile.

@AforAmpere: That's quite a nice glide reflective diagonal ship. I haven't searched for many with that kind of geometry, I wonder how frequently they occur?

Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)
Hmm, a T+Glider ship would be kinda likely... unfortunately it's nighttime here so I cant search. My suggestion for you Merricans is to do it in Tlife and do a formation where 2 gliders crash a T from opposite sides...Macbi wrote:Has anyone tried looking for a SMOS made out of two different ships?
I dont think this has a high chance of success  the LWSS is a pretty big ship for a "lightweight" title... it being a knightship is much less likely, considering that no knightSMOS (Or even oblique) have been found.83bismuth38 wrote:yeah, like a glider and LWSS! maybe it would even move at a 12.5 angle!

As expected, no result after ~2*10^8 rules. This was in the standard configuration for diagonal ships at the minimum spacing, but not exhaustive due to use of random rule generator.wildmyron wrote:Currently running SMoSMoSMoS search with the c/37.

Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)
I haven't looked at them all, but the c/46 I think is a reasonable candidate  at least as good as any I've posted. It works in 2^28 rules and I ran an unsuccessful search with this patternGoldtiger997 wrote:Some of theses may be viable for SMOSMOSMOS, but it is unlikely.

I'm now at the point where I don't know what to do with all the results I'm getting. I have about 2500 two glider SMoS, and another 1000 with the same c/2 Tship as above. I honestly don't know how to find the most interesting or useful ones amongst them all, though there are some nice new speeds amongst them which I will try to filter out and post.

Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)
After further consideration I'm less optimistic about this. It seems to me that a vast majority of them follow an evolutionary path resulting in either just two of the SMoS (as in the pattern above) or a single checker. There's possibly some benefit to constraining the search to include combinations of transitions which don't result in one of those two outcomes, but I don't think I'll bother for this one.wildmyron wrote:I haven't looked at them all, but the c/46 I think is a reasonable candidate  at least as good as any I've posted.

I'm not sure there's much interest in that though. But seeing as you asked, I'll try to compile a collection and post it later this week.muzik wrote:Why not just post all of them in a zip file or something?

 Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Nontotalistic rule
Re: Spaceships made up of other spaceships (SMOS)
That little c/2 sure is the basis for a lot of SMOSMOS. The 6c/89 works in 2^18 rules, which is on the low side to be optimistic. I ran a nonexhaustive search with the standard configuration which almost certainly tried all the rule combinations, but without success. The next most versatile ship is the 6c/180 which works in 2^17 rules.AforAmpere wrote:<snip>Many SMOSMOS, made out of C/25 diagonal ships, made out of C/2's</snip>
The 6c/89 seems to be very common, maybe a SMOSMOSMOS is possible.
