Then to create that glider we'll put a one-use reflector next to our 180-degree reflector, and bounce a glider off that at the appropriate moment.
Well... I probably don't entirely understand the suggestion, but yes, the plan is something along those lines.

Then at the appropriate time we send a glider out from our constructor arm and bounce it off the reflector, thus forming the lone glider we need at the distance we need.

The glider catches up a distance of N/12 at a relative speed of c/6, therefore taking time N/2. But its absolute speed is c/4, so the distance it actually travelled is N/8 and the memory loop will have length N/4. Even worse!

Why waste all that time reaching way over to the side to build a big enough memory loop, when there could be another cooperating salvo over there already, building its half of two loops?
Then each salvo would use one of the loops to get itself back from haploid to diploid again, after which both loops self-destruct and we move on to the all-gliders stage in the next cycle.

I think I agree, but just to be clear: I think the two copies of the recipe aren't exactly the same. The first copy of the recipe will be arranged so as to actually do construction (so for example if we were using the same construction arm as in the Demonoid then this recipe would be mostly consist of pairs of gliders one following closely behind the other). We could call this the "Construction Recipe". Whereas the second copy of the recipe would be arranged so that it could be fed as instructions into some machinery (so for example if our machinery was two edge-shooters, as in the Demonoid, then we would need to have two parallel lines of gliders).

But it looks like a crab-tubstretcher currently needs something like sixteen synchronized gliders hitting a big pseudo-still-life-plus-a-couple-of-toads constellation, And some of those synchronized gliders are pretty close together and may be a bit expensive to make a 1G seed for.
Yeah I agree that tubstretchers would be costly. I only mentioned them because
- I thought it would be neat to make an adjustable-speed spaceship that went very fast.
- I wasn't sure that a Cordership based design could work. I thought that maybe we could never produce a big enough gap between launching the Cordership and launching the glider that chases it.
I've now realised that a Cordership design can work. In fact if we usedvgrn wrote:Two Parallel Salvos, somewhat analogous to the Gemini. Why waste all that time reaching way over to the side to build a big enough memory loop, when there could be another cooperating salvo over there already, building its half of two loops?
then I think it should all work fairly easily. Let me describe a blueprint.
Just before the Critical Moment, we have the following situation:
- A Cordership closely followed by ...
- a long line of Construction gliders followed by ...
- a Big Gap followed by ...
- a long line of Instruction gliders ...
- AND a big copy of all of this running parallel to it some distance away (but I'll only describe what happens in one "half").
Then pretty soon the first few of the Construction gliders will hit the Cordership and start clearing up the mess to turn it into a single glider. This is the Critical Moment. Then they'll hit this glider and start turning it into useful things. The very first thing they should do is to make a new Cordership and send it on its way (making sure to leave something behind to use as a starting point for further constructions). We want to make the Cordership straight away because we want as much time as possible to pass before we make the glider to chase it. Then we want some more Consturction gliders to make the elbow and target of a construction arm. Then the rest of the Construction gliders will be aligned with this elbow and will create the rest of our machinery.
Then our completed machinery will just sit there for a while corresponding to the Big Gap between the two sets of gliders. This is to give the Cordership the correct amount of time before we fire the glider that chases after it.
The machinery will contain a construction arm and two edge-shooters firing towards it, as in the Demonoid. The Instruction gliders will arrive in two streams (one for each edge-shooter) and will enter a circuit which reflects them 90-degrees (towards the other half of the spaceship) and causes their edge-shooter to fire. (I'm assuming this will be as easy to arrange as for the Demonoid, where they are reflected 180-degrees and cause the edge-shooter to fire. But I'm not an expert so for all I know this is unworkable because 90-degrees is way more difficult for some reason.)
These instructions will be what produce the next round of Construction gliders. The first few Construction gliders have to destroy and clean up the Cordership, make a new Cordership, and make a (far) construction arm. I imagine these gliders will have to be on lots of different parallel tracks, and will therefore each need several instructions to our (near) construction arm to produce them. But after that the rest of the Construction gliders will be aligned to hit the far construction arm. So we can just make our near construction arm delete itself and then fire these gliders directly from the edge-shooters.
After all of the Instruction gliders have passed through the system (i.e. we have fired all the Construction gliders) we will have to wait a while for the Instruction gliders to arrive from the other half of our spaceship. This is what produces the Big Gap. Then when they do arrive we just pass them through some 90-degree reflectors and send them on their way. The two halves of our spaceshipe will each have to be slightly different so that the two sets of Instruction gliders don't crash when they crossover. But that will turn out to be okay if we give each of them the recipe for the other. Our spaceship will overall do a glide-reflect.
Last but not least there better be a Deletion glider (at the end of the Instruction gliders but on a different lane) that triggers some deletion circuitry. We'll place a one-time reflector so that it can follow the Instruction gliders over to the other half, but when it gets there it will trigger the deletion and of course create a copy of itself in the appropriate place.
Okay, so how will all the timings work out? Let's say the Cordership gets a distance C away before the first glider is fired after it. The sequences of Construction and Instruction gliders will be about the same length, let's call this L. And let's say the Big Gap has length G, and that the two halves of our ship are separated by distance D.
By the time the glider catches the Cordership they will be a distance of 3C/2 from where they launched. So in order for our ship to be all gliders at the Critical Moment we are going to want to have3C/2 > L + G + L
and because the Cordership is launched at the front of the Construction gliders, and the glider chasing it is launched at the front of the Instruction gliders, we'll haveC = L + G

Subtracting this from 3C/2 > L + G + L gives -3C/2 > L, which is a contradiction since C and L are positive. So my initial suspicion (b.) was correct! (At least for this design.) That Cordership is just too damn slow.
Macbi wrote:Perhaps we can fix this by also delaying the Instruction gliders before they enter the edge-shooters? Bounce them between the halves, then feed them through the shooters, then bounce them back again? Or maybe do something using one of those timer circuits I mentioned?

The glider catches up a distance of N/12 at a relative speed of c/6, therefore taking time N/2. But its absolute speed is c/4, so the distance it actually travelled is N/8 and the memory loop will have length N/4. Even worse!
Hmm... that's very plausible math. N/8 certainly looks more reasonable as an Achilles-and-the-Tortoise infinite sum of decreasing distances than N/2, if the first segment is only N/12.
Can somebody please triple-check my math, because clearly I'm not very good at it?
Macbi wrote:I think it's good. The difficulty was whether N was a time or a distance. If the gap has length N cells then the loop has size N; if the gap takes N ticks for a glider to traverse then the loop has size N/4. These differ by a factor of 1/4, which is the speed of the glider.

A suitably delayed *WSS launched from South Corner could meet up with a glider from West Corner (created right after the Cordership destruction) to make a target at North Corner. And a *WSS launched from West Corner after that could meet up with the first glider sent from North Corner toward East Corner, to make a target at East.
