Not sure if this is useful or new, but it is interesting. g+pre-honeyfarm -> mwss + g + LOM
x = 7, y = 9, rule = B3/S23

This reaction was found by Dietrich Leithner, probably sometime in the 90's. See Life\Guns\gun-p165mwss.rle in the Golly pattern collection.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries

Weird way to "extend" a boat into a long boat:
x = 12, y = 11, rule = B3/S23
5b2o$5bobo$2o4bo$obo$bo2b3o$4bobo$4bo3b2o$6b5o$6bo3b2o$8bobo$9bo!


Maybe this will someday be useful in some unusual catalyst (long boats can be converted into boats easily)...

I was running JLS to find a p8 which flipped over every four steps, paused it halfway through, and realized that part of the pattern could interact with an eater 3 the same way as it did with the pattern JLS was using. This pattern just loops the loaves together.

Here's a p8 using eater 3's to stabilize the ends.

That is beautiful! It's exactly the kind of oscillator I envisioned when I made this post. Did you find it by hand, or did you use some sort of automated search?

I found it by hand, while trying to perturb a honey farm with eaters.

Maybe there's some sort of catalyst which can keep one reaction running on its own? Sadly, I've had trouble getting Bellman up and running on my computer, so I can't check.

Here's a c/5 spaceship:

There is now much more "OS friendly" version of bellman. Check it out:
https://github.com/simsim314/BellmanWin

If it doesn't work at you OS or you have any issues compiling it - I would be very glad to know and add a fix.

first-encounter should be >= 1.

Might take some time - as all your parameter set to high values. Consider lowering repair-interval or max-active for the first couple of runs - you might get results faster with lower values.

glider_rider wrote:Would this be the correct input file? If not, what's wrong?

Here are some things I would suggest:
  • Set first-encounter to 11. Any reaction that occurs before this will almost certainly not do what you want, so the search is just wasting time searching this space.
  • Set last-encounter to 15. Any reaction that starts after this will probably not do what you want.
  • Set repair-interval to 14 or 15. If repair-interval + stable-interval > 18 then the newly formed honeyfarm will crash back into the catalyst, which I think will cause the search to fail (that is, it won't find the pattern you want).
  • Set stable-interval to 2. I personally never use the default values for any parameter, partly because I can't remember the default value and partly because the default value is almost never what I want.
  • I personally like to set max-live to something very high, like 500. I just don't think there is a lot of reason to filter based on the number of live cells. 60 is probably high enough that it won't miss anything, but I like to be extra sure.
  • I don't usually set a filter pattern, because I worry there will be some reaction I wasn't expecting that gives interesting but different output. I only use a filter pattern when I am really sure about what I want and am getting too much extraneous output.
With these changes made, I suggest running the search to completion with max-active = 4 (this should be pretty fast, but likely won't find anything). If this finishes without finding what you want, try increasing max-active to 5 or 6 and run the search again. Keep doing this until you find what you're looking for or the searches start taking too long. You can also try varying some of the other parameters like first-encounter, last-encounter, or repair-interval to see if those speed up the search.

I would suggest an input file like this:
#S first-encounter 11
#S last-encounter 15
#S repair-interval 15
#S stable-interval 2
#S max-live 500
#S max-active 4
#P 0 0

Yep the default stable-interval is 5. Can be a problem for p18.

Sokwe wrote: I just don't think there is a lot of reason to filter based on the number of live cells


max-live is nice filter, built-in into golly recursion. This is the main "shortcut" for VERY large search spaces where both max-active and repair-interval should be pretty big. This limits the search space very seriously, and can allow the execution to be so much faster - obviously with a cost.

I also want to add max-gen flag, for cases like this that don't need to iterate after generation 18.

Yes, that was posted by knightlife a while back, following calcyman's Rube Goldberg version (which actually included the exact same eaters).
