Dear Eric and seqfans,
rule 2) tells to consider "the last integer fitting perfectly in a [square of
unit-squares]". In my understanding it means that I have to consider the last integer I can "totally" write approaching the lower left corner of the building square. Is it correct? In this case the sequence is:
0,3,12,22,36,54,76,101,121,143 (two more [square of unit-squares]left to complete the new square),169,197,227 (again two more [square of unit-squares]left to complete the new square),261,297,335(again two more [square of unit-squares]left to complete the new square),377, etc..

(Inspired by another spiral just seen here)
1) start to write on a grid the nonnegative integers so to form a spiral
(one digit clockwise per unit-square);
2) make a pause for the last integer fitting perfectly in a [square of
unit-squares] -- else proceed;
3) colour this last integer in yellow;
4) call S the sequence of yellow terms.
