1-Cell Thick Patterns (3)

These are the smallest (in terms of bits) one cell thick patterns to emit a glider, lightweight (LWSS), middleweight (MWSS) and heavyweight (HWSS) spaceship.

Glider

There are two 15-bit patterns.

Pattern #1 (13 cells alive)

15bb1

Pattern #1 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 15, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
5ob5ob3o!

Pattern #2 (12 cells alive)

Pattern #2 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 15, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
5ob3o2b4o!

Please refer to 1-Cell Thick Patterns (2) for more information about this patterns.

Lightweight Spaceship

There is one 23-bit pattern.

Pattern #1 (17 cells alive)

23LWSS

Pattern #1 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 23, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
4ob3ob5o4b5o!

It runs for 202 generations and produces the following:

23LWSSFinal

Including the two LWSS.

Middleweight Spaceship

There are four 30-bit patterns.

Pattern #1 (22 cells alive)

30MWSS_1

Pattern #1 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 30, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
3o2b3o3b3o3b13o!

It runs for 789 generations and produces the following:

30MWSS_1_Final

Including the two MWSS (and two gliders).

Pattern #2 #4 (21 and 22 cells alive, respectively)

30MWSS_2

Pattern #2 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 30, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
4o2b6o2b3o4b3ob5o!

30MWSS_4

Pattern #4 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 30, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
4ob6o3b4o3b3ob5o!

Both run for 215 generations and produce the following:

30MWSS_2_Final

Including the two MWSS.

Pattern #3 (26 cells alive)

30MWSS_3

Pattern #3 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 30, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
4ob3ob9ob5ob5o!

It runs for 416 generations and produces the following:

30MWSS_3_Final

Including the two MWSS (and two gliders).

Heavyweight Spaceship

There is one 30-bit pattern.

Pattern #1 (26 cells alive)

30HWSS

Pattern #3 (RLE)
#CXRLE Pos=0,0
x = 30, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
9o2b3ob5ob9o!

It runs for 914 generations and produces the following:

30HWSS_Final

Including the two HWSS.

Pattern #1 (22 cells alive)

    I admit to be something of a maverick when it comes to LIFE. From 1970 to 2000 I pursued finding diehards and long-term ancestors to still-lifes ,oscillators and common patterns (like B’s and Pi’s), and from 2006-2010 ,I focused on oscillators, spaceships and puffer trains (after repairing cellar flood damage). Now I am spent.

    I gave names to many patterns that had none or the name was not included with the pattern. (Desk Clerk, Holding Pattern, Dr.Seuss, Trapeze Artists, Quilt, Piledriver, Manhatten Project, Shutters, Candlestick, Butterfly Dance, Carol, Lathe, Lincoln Tunnel, Frog Bog, Monstrosity, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Faro Game, Lawyer, Repulsars,… the list just goes on & on …)

    Some diagonal spaceships showed glide reflection just like the basic naturally-occuring Glider. I called them MEGA-GLIDERS . They include Orion, Little Orion, Canada Goose, Crab…but not the Air Show, Big Guy, Buraq or Galley of Ra (Swan). One glider is P6 – Seal.

    I know this is not what you were discussing, but I wanted to discuss with somebody who knew what I was saying, and was not just a good listener (like my father, who died in 2003).
