Jellyfish (g4b2c36k7s2ak34-a5-i)

Post by nolovoto » March 7th, 2019, 12:37 am

I named the rule Jelly-fish because of the shape of the common ship engine and the shape the wicks from the wickstretchers.

The wicks from the wickstretchers have the special ability to create stretchers on it's own.

Code: Select all

x = 30, y = 24, rule = 2ak34-a5-i/2c36k7/4

A multitude of the spaceships share a common engine and generally move at the same speed

Code: Select all

x = 88, y = 104, rule = 2ak34-a5-i/2c36k7/4

The rule also has a variety of different linear growth periods. The biggest natural one I found was period 4710

Code: Select all

x = 32, y = 32, rule = 2ak34-a5-i/2c36k7/4

This eventually turns into a reaction that emits 2 chains of 4 ships:

Code: Select all

x = 9, y = 13, rule = 2ak34-a5-i/2c36k7/4
5.2A$5.2A$3.4ABA$2.B.A.ABA$2.3A2.A$.A2.A$.3AC.C$A.A.C$.BCACB$A.A.A.A$
.BA.AB$.2A.2A$2.ABA!
Imagine if we can somehow harness the power of it
Failed Replicator!

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 4, rule = B34ce5cen67c8/S2-i3-jqry4cent5j67c8
bo$obo$bobo$2bo!
(That I wish was not failed D:)
