This rule might support pseudo-quadratic replicator. It is also rich of "clean/dirty" rakes. The universe is at the edge of explosion but highly dynamic. It is easy to get a moving head but usually it does not last forever.

Code: Select all

x = 139, y = 81, rule = B0124/S025

I want to name this rule "Mortality", for you never know when it dies.

Another rule exhibit similar phenomena

This rule is non-explosive until the fuse start to burn, and ashing sideway.

    }
    return getNode(n);
  }

  void writeRuleTree()
  {
    System.out.println("@RULE SCRT1");
    System.out.println("@TREE");
    System.out.println("num_states=" + numStates);
    System.out.println("num_neighbors=" + numNeighbors);
    System.out.println("num_nodes=" + r.size());
    for (int i=0; i<r.size(); i++)

    System.out.println("@COLORS");
    System.out.println(" 0   0   0   0");
    System.out.println(" 1 255   0   0");
    System.out.println(" 2   0 255   0");
  }

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
  {
    RuleTreeGen rtg = new RuleTreeGen();
    rtg.recur(numParams);
    rtg.writeRuleTree();
  }
}
This is an easy way to generate Golly rules that use k=5 and k=9 neighborhoods.

A rich assortment of guns can be constructed using the common replicator.

"Loop" rule with only 2 cells in a "loop". Not quite a "loop" but it still reproduces and grows like any loop rule would.

Code: Select all

@RULE TinyLoop2

@TABLE

n_states:4
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:rotate4

var a={0,1,2,3}
var b=a
var c=a
var d=a
var e=a
var f=a
var g=a
var h=a

var i={2,3}

0,1,2,0,0,0,0,0,0,2
0,2,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1
0,0,0,0,0,2,1,0,1,2
0,1,0,2,0,0,0,0,0,2

1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,3
3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
3,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,1

2,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,0

Code: Select all

x = 2, y = 1, rule = TinyLoop2
AB!

EXTENDED LFOD-------

This rule, B24j5y/S0, allows extended varieties of objects, like this 2 close dot puffer:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 5, rule = B24j5y/S0
3b2o$2bo2bo$3b2o$bo4bo$o6bo!
Or this really cool sparky spaceship:

Code: Select all

x = 12, y = 13, rule = B24j5y/S0
5b2o$4bo2bo$5b2o$3bo4bo$2bob4obo$bobo4bobo$2bo6bo$2o8b2o$b3o4b3o$2bo6b
o2$bobo4bobo$o3bo2bo3bo!
Just a rule i thought was worth sharing.

b-heptomino is an orthogonal spaceship:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3/S2-i3-a4nq
2bo$b3o$2obo!
Has a small and funny backrake:

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 4, rule = B3/S2-i3-a4nq
2b2o$3b2o$b3o$3o!
Which cleanly destroy each other:

Code: Select all

x = 18, y = 13, rule = B3/S2-i3-a4nq
16b2o$15b2o$16b2o$17bo6$2b2o$3b2o$b3o$3o!
The wing is a p48 rotating oscillator:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 4, rule = B3/S2-i3-a4nq
2b2o$bobo$o2bo$b2o!
Useless reaction:

Code: Select all

x = 10, y = 13, rule = B3/S2-i3-a4nq

I mean, this rule is explosive, but interesting.
We got spontaneous puffers, combinations, guns, and possibly breeders. I would say the emergence here is fairly strong and non-trivial. It feels like "someone" is doing soupsearch/construction behind the scene.

It will be quite challenging to discriminate interesting objects automatically.

EDIT: I've just found out that many rules I mentioned were already included on David Eppinstein's page of interesting rules. Nevertheless I want to promote more exploration on them. It would also help if we can build an API/search engine to check for nearest neighbor of a given interested rule/pattern/string, which would supposedly avoid futile re-research and accelerate the exploration.

The rule could also be modified rather severely if other close rules prove workable: the ships that started the discussion of this rule should work in most rules with B2a3r4i and without any of B012c3n/S01.

BlinkerSpawn,

Rule B2a3jqr4airty5iq6k7e/S2ak3jq4ar5q6kn was randomly generated. My challenge was to construct guns using the rhythms of this rule. The exploration of simple or "rather severe" modifications to the rule is an entirely different exercise.

Not really a life variant, since it is vastly different from life: B35y/S236c.

First, a traffic light predecessor turns into a huge spark:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 3, rule = B35y/S236c
2bo$obo$2bo!
It can be hassled:

Code: Select all

x = 14, y = 3, rule = B35y/S236c
2o4bobo3b2o$o4bob2o3b2o$6bobo!

Code: Select all

x = 16, y = 7, rule = B35y/S236c
14b2o$12bo2bo$2o3bobo4b3o$2o3b2obo$5bobo4b3o$12bo2bo$14b2o!
It also has a very small 6c/14 block puffer:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 4, rule = B35y/S236c
3o$obo$bo$3o!
Long barges are more common:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 4, rule = B35y/S236c
bo$2o$obo$bo!
There's a p10 oscillator from just 6 cells, i've named it the "decathlon" although pentadecathlon doesn't work, sadly:

Code: Select all

x = 1, y = 6, rule = B35y/S236c
6o!
In fact, a row of 10 cells demonstrates how near-exploding this rule can be:

Code: Select all

x = 10, y = 1, rule = B35y/S236c
10o!
So I'm split between Life Variants, this thread, and near-exploding rules. Damn. Anyway, this rule has another weird oscillator with a massive p58 spark. It's not that rare either:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 5, rule = B35y/S236c
3o$b2o2bo$5b2o$6b2o$5b2o!
Here's a p58 gun:

Code: Select all

x = 28, y = 7, rule = B35y/S236c
