New sparky p14 shuttle found by carybe (again):
`x = 11, y = 15, rule = B3/S23b2o5b2o\$b2o5b2o5\$2b2o3b2o\$b2o5b2o\$o2bo3bo2bo\$obo5bobo\$3o5b3o3\$b2o5b2o\$b2o5b2o!`

It has exactly the same symmetry as the tumbler, and even looks a bit like a larger version of it. Isn't there some pond hassler wick that this could support? The oscillator looks like a semi-useful sparker, although p14 isn't too common of a period sparker to need. (I knew I kept fruitlessly checking all those p14 census categories for years for a reason.)

Two soups so far:

Both soups suggest possible syntheses, although of radically different types (L-tetromino+phi+blinker+block mirrored for the first, and disintegrating large SL plus blocks for the second).

That's really nice, congrats to carybe for finding it. I would be surprised if it didn't have some use as a sparker.

Very nice! By the way, can we please post new oscillator discoveries in the oscillator discussion thread? When it comes time to update the oscillator collection it would be nice to have (almost) everything in one place.

It can reflect gliders, but unfortunately this doesn't work on a p14 stream:
`x = 21, y = 25, rule = B3/S232bo\$obo\$b2o5\$9bo\$7bobo\$8b2o\$11bo\$10bo2bo\$7b2o5bo\$6bo8bo3b2o\$6bo8bo3b2o\$7bob2ob3o\$11b2o2\$11b2o\$7bob2ob3o\$6bo8bo3b2o\$6bo8bo3b2o\$7b2o5bo\$10bo2bo\$11bo!`

It might also be useful in the hunt for a p42 gun.

Yes it can:

Scorbie had already solved this problem with a p14 bi-block hassler, but this new oscillator is much smaller.

Edit: it gives new record smallest p28 and p42 oscillators:
`x = 62, y = 18, rule = B3/S23b2o5b2o31b2o5b2o\$b2o5b2o31b2o5b2o4\$4bobo37bobo2\$b3o3b3o31b3o3b3o\$o9bo29bo9bo\$3o5b3o5b2o22b3o5b3o\$bo7bo5bo2bo22bo7bo5b2o\$14bobobo36b2o\$14bo2bo\$b2o5b2o3bo27b2o5b2o5bo\$b2o5b2o4bobo24b2o5b2o4bobo\$54bo2bo2b2o\$58bob2o\$56b2o!`

Edit 2: who is "carybe"? Are they even aware that they're making significant discoveries?

The reflection reaction delays the glider by 2 ticks. If the second incoming glider follows the first by 16 or fewer steps, it will hit the reflected first glider, so 28 is the minimum usable period.

Thanks to carybe and Apple Bottom, the D8_1 census has just surpassed D8_4 in terms of number of objects. Crazy to think how just 2 months ago it had reached 5 trillion objects and now it's getting close to 10 trillion.

It is shorter by one row than the existing shortest stabilization. Reductions?

The catalysis also works on a solitary B, but I haven't tested to see whether the result can be perturbed in any useful way.

Is this stabilization of the queen bee known?

Here's the object (fourfold)

Uknown discoverer.

Well, there's a comment on it dating from August, so yes.

Found this 20x20 soup with lifespan 39693 after searching ~23B patterns using my own FPGA-based search engine.

Two things: first, welcome to the forums!
Second, I was going to mention how methuselahs are not usually considered important, but in this case you seem to have broken a record: This pattern lasts longer than Fred, previously the longest-lasting methuselah known with a 20-by-20 bounding box. Congratulations!

Very impressive! I'm intrigued to hear more about your FPGA search program.

It does prompt the question: if apgsearch tracked the lifespans of soups, what would the current record-breaker be? Over 10 trillion soups have been sampled in Catagolue, but long-lived soups aren't currently filtered.

My FPGA code is checked in to https://github.com/rliston/life-soup along with 288 20x20 soups with lifespan 25K+. It is currently running on a Xilinx EK-U1-VCU118-G evaluation board but with some effort the verilog code could be ported to run on AWS F1 instances e.g. https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/f1/ although TBH I'm not sure it's any faster (~2550 soups/second) than software search.
Also, I miscounted and this pattern was found after searching 23B random patterns over 3 months.

Thanks,
Rob
