The block can be made in two gliders from a beehive but I don't know if it will be easy to teach slmake about this kind of thing:

Code: Select all

`x = 39, y = 40, rule = B3/S23`

Anyway, by flipping the G->MWSS vertically I came up with a cheaper 1-Snark Orthogonoid that has 367 cells and is HashLife friendly. Among similar 1-Snark Orhogonoids it should be difficult to beat but maybe the 2-Snark version is still better:

Code: Select all

`x = 346, y = 297, rule = B3/S23`
