c/7 diagonal spaceship

Post by Sokwe » August 19th, 2011, 3:08 pm

Here is a c/7 diagonal spaceship found using WinLifeSearch:

Code: Select all

x = 26, y = 26, rule = B3/S23
12b3o$12bo$13bo2b2o$16b2o$12b2o$13b2o$12bo2bo2$14bo2bo$14bo3bo$15b3obo
$20bo$2o2bobo13bo$obob2o13bo$o4bo2b2o13b2o$6bo3bo6b2o2b2o2bo$2b2o6bo6b
o2bo$2b2o4bobo4b2o$9bo5bo3bo3bo$10bo2bo4b2o$11b2o3bo5bobo$15bo8b2o$15b
o4bo$14bo3bo$14bo5b2o$15bo5bo!
The wings at the front were found with a short, wide search, and their small,
versatile connection to other components prompted me to find a bilaterally
symmetric, long, narrow completion, much in the way that Hartmut Holzwart did to
find his small c/6 orthogonal spaceship (see 56P6H1V0).

Just to re-iterate, I'm amazed: omega+13th spaceship velocity so far...
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

That's a really neat engine. It looks fairly synthesizable, actually. Also, I wouldn't be surprized if a smaller one-engine stabilization turns out to exist…

Sokwe, your name is Matthias Merzenich, right?

Congratulations!

Are you going to name it?

I'm sure this is quite trivial, but I think it is neat that two or more can be placed close enough together to form pseudo-spaceships, and pairs can be in synch, or out of synch like this:

Code: Select all

x = 43, y = 43, rule = B3/S23

I look forward to the first orthogonal c/7 ship!

Those two are not connected/interacting with each other at all :wink:

Regardless, this is an amazing discovery!

Since they travel only one cell away from each other in one spot, I thought they form a pseudo-spaceship just as two blocks which are one cell away form a pseudo-stilllife. If that was a late-night mistake, I apologize, and in any case, I don't want to distract from Skowe's discovery!

You can place two orthogonally symmetric patterns one cell away and they will never interact, as the rule (B3/S23) doesn't have B2, B4, B6 or B8.

Here's an extension of the spaceship with the wings being used as pushalongs:
