muzik wrote:Asking obvious questions like I normally do, is c/8 the fastest possible speed for a slope 3 spaceship, and c/10 the fastest for a slope 4? Since the fastest for a slope 0 (orthogonal) is c/2, a slope 1 (diagonal) c/4 and a slope 2 c/6, it should probably follow that pattern.
Also, has anyone tried putting almost knightship through a further search yet, to see if anything useful appears at the back end?

Similarly, we have the 3c/9 117P9H3V0, which I'm assuming was found with at least some help of a search program. So why no c/9, 2c/9 or 4c/9?
muzik wrote:Also, I've had an idea for a search program that could potentially catch a few of the lower hanging fruits: it would kind of randomise what it searches for (the period being a random number from 6 to 12, the symmetries being randomly chosen as well). If anyone wants to devise a program that runs along those lines, the elusive c/8 orthogonal could be hanging on a branch painted with camouflage colours.

Here's my best attempt at a (3,1)c/8 knightship (from a width 11 search in gfind):Code: Select allx = 9, y = 13, rule = B3/S23

Probably because a 3c/9 or 4c/8 ship usually still has a period 2, 3, or 4 front end, which aren't as hard to find.

That may be so but I, for one, can't say I've seen any partials quite like these before.
How did you find them?
BlinkerSpawn wrote:At the very least the front ends are there.
The bottommost one looks the best at first glance.
Now that these have been found, maybe you could try extending these partials as an exercise for other search programs. I know gfind and zfind work, but there's compiling stuff that has to go on first that I haven't even really bothered to go through.
Building lookup tables.
