It seems like most p23n circuitry is interchangeable with p20n because the mechanisms are virtually identical (sadly the p20 suicidal c/6 gun doesn't work with p23)

It's a shame that there are no push reactions/ships slower than the replicator/diagonal ships because if there were we could probably make slower repships :(
If there were 90° reflectors we could probably make high-period oscillators of periods ≠ 15n

Cool rules are all over the place. Here's a new cool rule, B2cek3q4-i/S13ck4k:
It has 2 p33 oscillators:

Code: Select all

x = 18, y = 16, rule = B2cek3q4-i/S13ck4k

It also has lots of guns (because the larger p33 has glider sparks):

EDIT: Looking at it again, I'm not actually sure what's going on with the second one. My idea was just to suppress an otherwise-destructive glider with an extra moving osc, and it worked, but somehow it also added a second signal into the mix?

Just like the example I gave, in the second rake (extensible) the glider that triggers the reactivation reaction actually pushes the p33 twice and leaves behind a domino, which the second glider cleans up. So there are 2 signals but one of them just cleans up the debris from the double push (which could probably be fixed by modifying the reflector) Nothing spooky going on there.
If it helps with engineering, there are (at least) 4 different "push" reactions for long lines of p33s:

Code: Select all

x = 128, y = 39, rule = B2cek3q4-i/S13ck4k
106bo18bo$25bo18bo59b3o4bo8bo4b3o$23b3o4bo8bo4b3o59bo2bo2bo6bo2bo2bo$

83bo3bob2obo6bob2obo$85b2o18b2o$82b2o3bo16bo!
There are probably loads of these with different horizontal, vertical, and phase shifts which would make engineering much easier. The top left doesn't produce gliders, which is probably useful.

Lots of 2c/4 diagonal ships, seems like diagonal Star Wars.
I and wildmyron manage the 5S project, which collects all known spaceship speeds in Isotropic Non-totalistic rules.

Things to work on:
- Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule
- Finish a rule with ships with period >= f_e_0(n) (in progress)

Yes, that rule is referred to as 'HoneyLife'. It isn't that interesting, at least compared to B38/S23 'PedestrianLife', which is also known. You can count on any mildly interesting isotropic rule (No letters or dashes) being known, considering there are only 262,144 of them, most of which being completely boring. Non-isotropic rules are very numerous, I forgot the exact number of them, but it's somewhere among the 2^100's.

It's actually called Pulsar Life (HoneyLife is B38/S238).

The number of NT isotropic rules is 2^102; but the interesting ones (i.e. support spaceships but don't explode at lightspeed) are only just over 27*2^93 in number.

Also you may have confused "totalistic" and "isotropic" there

Rules don't need to expand to be interesting per se.

Basically they represent specific arrangements of n cells within the Moore neighborhood (rotation/reflection independent).

Golly supports them natively (do Control -> Set Rule), and most other utilities do as well ever since August

Technically, all rules are already known. There may, however, be undiscovered patterns in your rule.

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j

Though in general rules with B2a are considered less interesting than chaotic but stable rules.
