### Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

This will be a challenge to find the slowest 1-cell spaceship in a non-symmetric rule of any number of states. For 2 states, it is obviously c, whether orthogonal or diagonal, as it cannot move in any direction without using a B1e or B1c transition, and so has to move at c:

Code: Select all

x = 1, y = 1, rule = MAPGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
o!
However, this is not true for higher state rules, as this preliminary example shows, with three states, acheiving C/16:

Code: Select all

The slowest found of each state count will be held here. Entries should be submitted only with the condition that the spaceship the rule is designed for is one celled in one phase, and the state of the cell in that phase is state 1. The above two rules follow this condition, so when one state 1 cell is placed, it will follow the evolution of the entry spaceship. No direction is required, just a speed.

### Re: Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

Couldn't you just make a cell age as in Generations, but as it reaches its last stage, instead of just dying outright it births a state-1 cell to the right of it?
Bored of using the Moore neighbourhood for everything? Introducing the Range-2 von Neumann isotropic non-totalistic rulespace!

Yeah, but that's probably not optimal in most cases. See the example he actually posted, of a 3-state rule in which a single cell travels more slowly than the 3-state implementation of your idea.

Edit: Maybe your idea is still useful to establish an upper bound on the lowest possible speed for a given number of states.

Extensible to higher state numbers as well, but would likely require non-trivial changes.

### Re: Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

Yikes. No limit on the number of lines in the rule table, only on the number of states? The lower bound on the busy beaver Σ(N) function for increasing N goes like

4
6
13
4098
3.5×10^18267
10^10^10^10^18705352

I'm not sure the Single-Cell Spaceship Slowness function will take off quite as vertically as that, but when the exponents get big enough it can be kind of hard to tell the difference...! Come to think of it, rule tables would seem to have some resemblance to two-dimensional Turing machines -- for all I know, the function could even go up faster than Σ.

EDIT: Here's a problem that's probably about to show up: the rule table file for the slowest possible spaceship will start taking up terabytes of space, while the number of states is still in the single digits. Can I suggest a modification of the contest conditions? The rule table should fit in a

### Re: Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

Edited, what is the number of states where a computer that counts to any arbitrarily high number and then resets to one cell is possible? I feel like it is probably 50 states or less.

Should be possible in ≤15 states to make a ship with a period on the order of double or maybe triple exponential, based on the double-binary counter ship posted here (by me, shameless self-promo). I would make this, except that the vodka is good, but the meat is rotten.

### Re: Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

Tried to make a 1-cell 2-state c/4 spaceship, and I got this:

Code: Select all

@RULE MyEntry
@TABLE
n_states:2
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:none

0,0,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1
0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,1

1,0,0,1,1,1,0,0,0,0
1,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,0,0
1,1,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1
1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0

Code: Select all

x = 1, y = 1, rule = MyEntry
o!

I was so socially awkward in the past and it will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Code: Select all

How many states to make it so that the counter tapes get progressively longer? That would be really slow! On a related note, could the ships in the said rule be adjustable?

Significantly slower (I'm not sure what the period is, but the second counter counts up to about 6,900):

I had made a variant of the slowshiptry rule with a c/54 ship, but that doesn't seem useful anymore.
Moosey wrote:Is it possible to do 4 or five states where the counter counts using counters...
So it would have a sequence of counters and every time one counter overflowed, it would trigger the next one to count and when the very last counter overflows, it would destroy itself? That might work, except it might need a few more states for signals.

### Re: Slowest one cell spaceships of each state count

I made a rule with tetrationally slow ships (~c/2^^n with 2n cells) at http://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewto ... =25#p51354. Also, 3S1CShips7 has a small bug that is fixed here:

So it would have a sequence of counters and every time one counter overflowed, it would trigger the next one to count and when the very last counter overflows, it would destroy itself? That might work, except it might need a few more states for signals.
Yes, that’s what I mean, a tetrationally slow 1-cell ship

If the whole universe fills up and the one dot disappears, only one cell next to the gap may survive and the rest dies. It can't be done in Golly because it doesn't support B0 properly for rule tables. I was so socially awkward in the past and it will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Nobody did. The period is estimated based on how the ship works. You can calculate the period because it does the same type of thing over and over (the binary counting).
Wildmyron and I manage the 5S project, which collects all known spaceship speeds in Isotropic Non-totalistic rules.

Things to work on:

I have found a c/2 in 2 states!!!

Code: Select all

x = 1, y = 1, rule = MAP//////////////////////////////////////////4AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABA
o!

I knew this could be made, but always failed to do it. I mentioned about it earlier:

For two states it could theoretically be c/2. If the whole universe fills up and the one dot disappears, only one cell next to the gap may survive and the rest dies. It can't be done in Golly because it doesn't support B0 properly for rule tables.
but no one cared.
I was so socially awkward in the past and it will haunt me for the rest of my life.

I don't care enough to convert this to a MAP. Anyway, your approach has much more potential, I think. I believe with enough effort you could absolutely make a much, much slower 1-cell 2-state ship. It's trivial to prove that it must have an even period.

I tried to do it, but doesn't work.

Code: Select all local g = golly() dead_state = tonumber(g.getstring("Enter state for dead cells, or h for help.")) if dead_state==nil then g.warn([[automap.lua - blah 2020 This script generates a MAP rulestring for the current rule, where 2 states are considered and all others are ignored. Useful, primarily, if you want to design a 2-state rule with B0 using RuleLoader. The script maps the provided 2 states from the current rule onto the 2 states of the generated MAP rule. For example, running this script with B3/S23 as the current rule and entering 0, then 1, will generate a MAP conversion of B3/S23. Entering 1 then 0 will generate its inverse. This requires that a universe of only cells with one of the two provided states will never produce a third state. Otherwise, the script will produce an error.]],false) g.exit() end live_state = tonumber(g.getstring("And the one for live cells.")) g.addlayer() g.select({-1,-1,5,5}) -- used to clear edges, so explosions won't evolve rule_string = "MAP" base64_digs='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/' bit6buf = 0 -- number in which the 6 bits of a base64 digit are built up for neigh = 0, 515 do -- 515 instead of 511, since 512 is not a multiple of 6 -- the bits beyond 511 simply don't matter bits = {} for bit = 0, 8 do if neigh/(2^bit) % 2 < 1 then bits[bit] = dead_state else bits[bit] = live_state end end -- write new state out g.setcell(2,2,bits[0]) g.setcell(1,2,bits[1]) g.setcell(0,2,bits[2]) g.setcell(2,1,bits[3]) g.setcell(1,1,bits[4]) g.setcell(0,1,bits[5]) g.setcell(2,0,bits[6]) g.setcell(1,0,bits[7]) g.setcell(0,0,bits[8]) -- test what it produces g.step() new_cell = g.getcell(1,1) g.clear(0) -- convert new cell to binary value if new_cell == live_state then new_cell = 1 elseif new_cell == dead_state then new_cell = 0 else g.dellayer() g.error("Attempt to convert non-2-state subrule.") g.exit() end bit6buf = bit6buf*2 + new_cell if neigh%6 == 5 then -- add new base64 digit rule_string = rule_string .. base64_digs:sub(bit6buf+1,bit6buf+1) bit6buf = 0 end end g.dellayer() g.warn(rule_string) With my rule, fed the parameters 1 and 2, it produces this rule: Code: Select all x = 1, y = 1, rule = MAP//+AAH//AAD//wAA//8AAH//AAD//wAA//8AAP//AAD//wAA//8AAP/+AAH//wAA//8AAP7/AAD//wAA//8AAP o!
