### Switches (B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c)

This is an apg-searchable rule:
https://catagolue.appspot.com/census/b2 ... tz5ijnqy6c

It has at least six natural ships (orth: c/2, 4c/8, 2c/6, oblique: (2,1)/6 (knightwise), 2 x diag: c/3):

Code: Select all

``````x = 26, y = 22, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
4\$15bo\$11bo4b2o\$5bo6bo4bo\$4bobo3b2o3bo2bo3\$2b2o\$3bo2b2o13b3o\$2bo4b2o
13bo\$2bobo2b2o13bo\$3b2ob2o3bobo7bobo\$5bo6bob3o3b3o!
``````
The up-flying ones (c/2 orth, knight, c/3 diag) are very common and very useful for signals.

The magic comes from the c/2 ship which has these properties.

Code: Select all

``````x = 37, y = 13, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
\$2bobo\$2b3o2\$15bobo5bobo6bobo\$15b3o5b3o6b3o\$2bobo\$2b3o2\$15b2o\$3bo19bo
8bobo\$3bo19bo8bobo!``````
It has a colour changing domino-splitter with repeat time of 10(!), the domino can be eater and also act as an eater, and finally two dominos can reflect a c/2 ship by 180°. Thus we have oscillators and guns for all periods p>9. Further, the rule is omniperiod (you find oscillators p < 10 in the catagolue).

Eater collection:

Code: Select all

``````x = 74, y = 15, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c

I feel like this rule needs more attention.

### Re: Switches (B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c)

Hmm...maybe this could be useful.

Code: Select all

``````x = 27, y = 6, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
2o8b2o\$bo9bo12b2o\$2o8b2o3\$25b2o!``````
Edit: I used another domino as a rock (am I using these terms correctly?)

Code: Select all

``````x = 17, y = 6, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
2o\$bo12b2o\$2o2\$13bo\$13bob2o!``````
Edit on edit: Turns out you don't need the other domino

Code: Select all

``````x = 12, y = 6, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
2o\$bo8b2o\$2o2\$9bo\$9bo!``````
Edit 2 on edit: I have no idea what I'm doing but it's fun

Code: Select all

``````x = 22, y = 22, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
8bo\$8bo\$14b2o4\$2bo\$2bo3bo\$7bob2o9b2o\$6bo6bo\$13bo\$8bo\$8bo\$2o9b2o\$19bo\$
19bo4\$6b2o\$13bo\$13bo!``````
Edit 2: Ok, I found a use! It only allows the first signal to reflect, then it eats every other signal.

Code: Select all

``````x = 35, y = 6, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
2o8b2o8b2o\$bo9bo9bo8b2o\$2o8b2o8b2o12bo\$34bo2\$31b2o!``````
Edit 3: What is this?

Code: Select all

``````x = 160, y = 31, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
2o\$bo28b2o\$2o2\$48b2o\$31b2o15bo\$48b2o18\$110b2o18b2o\$111bo19bo8b2o\$110b
2o18b2o2\$158b2o\$141b2o15bo\$158b2o!``````
Random posts isn't the problem, toxicity is. Don't be toxic.

Anyway, I created a CA which has a lot of infinte growths.

### Re: Switches (B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c)

I was trying to find a converter for the orth to the diag, and accidentally found this.

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 9, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
12b2o\$2o\$bo\$2o2\$9bo\$9bo2\$8b2o!``````
(shifts down by 1)
Also, you can't speed up or slow down the spaceship by chaining these together.

I think it could work with a small repeat time using one of the two compnents:

Code: Select all

``````x = 37, y = 15, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c

The latter is used in the gun shown above.
Edit1:
or this one:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 11, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c

This allows p>14 knight guns (with a p15 example [not optimal in terms of size]):

Code: Select all

``````x = 63, y = 40, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c

Edit1:
And a stable signal converter with min. repeat time 15:

Code: Select all

``````x = 20, y = 23, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c

Oh, nice! I think the latter of the first and the second are really great!
I just need to find a way to set one of those situations up somehow...

### Re: Switches (B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c)

A way to change the colour of a G:

Code: Select all

``````x = 30, y = 43, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
\$23b2o\$16bo\$13bo2bo\$13bo10b2o3\$27b2o\$20bo\$20bo3\$b2o11bo\$2bo12bob2o\$b2o
11bo3\$20bo\$20bo\$27b2o3\$13bo10b2o\$13bo2bo\$16bo\$23b2o11\$b2o11bo\$2bo12bo\$
b2o11bo!
``````
unfortunately the min. repeat time is 25, thus quite high.

Edit1:
This allows a colour preserving reflector with min. repeat time 19:

Code: Select all

``````x = 17, y = 10, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
10b2o\$11bobo\$11b3o4\$14bo\$2o8bo2b2o\$bo9bo2bobo\$2o8bo4bo!

Welcome to the Forums!

Figuring out how to do things like this is pretty hard. Just try messing around.

What about an orthogonoid in this rule?

Might be possible. But, the tricky part seems to get fire commands as the rule has many debris in ashes, and does not last very long. however, a potential path could be shooting at a domino:

Code: Select all

``````x = 58, y = 37, rule = B2ei3ij4ajnr6ci/S12ce3ajn4qtz5ijnqy6c
\$49bobo\$50bo4\$49bobo\$49b3o\$7bobo\$7b3o2\$49bobo\$49b3o3\$31bobo\$31b3o15bob

17bo4\$9bo23bo17bo\$9bo23bo17bo!
``````
Edit1: Or as we have stable signal converters, we could also shoot at a domino/block/the p6 with knights or the c/3-diag ships. this would have the advandage that we have to fire more simple Gs.
