### Simple growing spaceship

Here's a simple growing spaceship made up of two c/2 backrakes that produce blocks that are eaten by an 114P6H1V0 (which, by the way, I think deserves a proper name, maybe having something to do with the fact that two herchels appear?).

I think it should be called the Snowplow, because it eats a lot of things in its path.

The front of it simulates a moving p6 analogue of the pentadecathlon:

Hmmm! So it does! I'm going to try & bounce gliders off it. I like the idea of a slow moving reflector. I might be able to build a mobile memory loop...

In the meantime, here a variation of Axaj's ship. A pair of them, eating a pair of wobbly block tracks. The blocks are shifted by a twin rake from the Life32 collection.

### Re: Simple growing spaceship

No luck. The front might look a bit like a pentadecathlon, but the corners don't and that's where gliders would bounce off. Oh well.

But I did discover that it doesn't like snakes. See what happens when a snake suddenly jumps into its path:

Code: Select all

``````x = 35, y = 18, rule = B3/S23
19bo\$18b3o\$18b2obo2b2o8bo\$20b3o8b2obo\$4b2o16bo8bo\$3bobo7bo9b2o5b4o\$4bo
3bo2b5o8b2o2bo\$2o2bo2b2o2b2o2bo3b3o2b2obobo\$o3bob2o6bo9bo4bo\$bo2bob2o
6bo9bo4bo\$2o2bo2b2o2b2o2bo3b3o2b2obobo\$4bo3bo2b5o8b2o2bo\$3bobo7bo9b2o
5b4o\$4b2o16bo8bo\$20b3o8b2obo\$18b2obo2b2o8bo\$18b3o\$19bo!
``````
Notice that the snake is untouched by the reaction. If the snake is moved back a cell or more so that a normal collision occurs, the resulting reaction generates a twin pair of herschels and a handful of blinkers.

Actually, this ship tends to produce at least one if not two herschels in any reaction that disrupts it, in my admittedly limited experience. I suppose I should run it through my collision script & see what happens when it collides with eaters, beehives & gliders etc (I've already tested a few of these manually).

Various interesting collisions between the c/6 ship and gliders, beehives, snakes, eaters & blocks.

### Re: Simple growing spaceship

Isn't there a collision of two gliders that uses the first domino that will produce a third glider?

### Re: Simple growing spaceship

I don't think this is a "strict" growing spaceship because of this:
x = 92, y = 19, rule = B3/S23

It is a slow spaceship eating a puffer's exhausts. However, this may be considered as one too.
