2456/3457/4

Post by ebcube » April 23rd, 2010, 2:32 pm

This rule has (as far as I know) two different spaceships with 4 variations (kind of like tagalongs) each:

Code: Select all

x = 78, y = 44, rule = 2456/3457/4

I've also found 3 oscillators:

EDIT: I managed to stabilize a third kind of spaceship:

An unstable width 9 spaceship is synthesized from a width 8 and a width 5:

Code: Select all

x = 23, y = 14, rule = 2456/3457/4
17.AB$17.3AB$16.2AB.AC$16.5AB$17.AC3AC$20.AC2$4.2A$2.6A$5ABAB$B2ACA.A
$.3AC2BA$BCAB3.C$.C!
I can't stabilize it... help?

A lot of new stuff! :D

You can use this to make oscillators of almost any period (here, 60 and 120)

Code: Select all

x = 35, y = 58, rule = 2456/3457/4
.4A25.4A$6A23.6A$6A23.6A$6A23.6A$6A23.6A$.4A25.4A5$13.CA$12.B3A$12.B

4A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$.4A10.4A5$5.AC$4.3AB$4.3AB$5.AC5$.4A
10.4A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$6A8.6A$.4A10.4A!
Also, this incredibly simple pattern (i don't know how i missed this before) sends a stream of width 4 spaceships:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 8, rule = 2456/3457/4
3.2A$2.A2.A$.A4.A$A6.A$A6.A$.A4.A$2.A2.A$3.2A!
I found more spaceships, this is the updated list:

Code: Select all

x = 96, y = 235, rule = 2456/3457/4
3$3.2A4.2A$3.2A4.2A2$3.2A4.2A$3.2A4.2A$20.2A19.2A24.2A19.2A$3.2A.2A.

Two width 7 spaceships can be "tied" together to create a wickstretcher:

Code: Select all

x = 9, y = 12, rule = 2456/3457/4
