Re: Seeds

A c/7o partial that's run into a photon barrel. Via LSSS. <snip supported c/7o> That's very nice. It's not impossible that a p6 gun could be found to support the frontend, but considering that there's no known gun above p4 and that there's only one known p6 oscillator, it seems unlikely. But there ...

Re: Oscillators Made up of Spaceships (OMS)

Bump Probably the first known elementary example from an OT rule; it was found in apgsearch by dmqwerty in May 2020. (The spaceship is 2c/4o, and this oscilllator is p260) x = 10, y = 10, rule = B024/S0123 o$2o$o6$8bo$7b3o! Fascinating OMoS, but are you forgetting the monster which you pointed out ...

Re: Thread for basic questions

It's also possible to extend a partial like this using logic life search, but it would only be feasible to find a completion if it's relatively short. I'd guess that a 10 column extension is doable, perhaps a bit longer if searching for a partial, but currently a new search needs to be run for each ...

Width-17 odd-symmetric 2c/7 search finished without results. Best partial: <snip partial 2c/7 That looks very promising - you will almost certainly find a ship with a width 19 search (w10) if you can run it (how long did the w9 search take?). Another option would be to run a w9 gutter search to ext...

Re: Rules with small adjustable spaceships

So assuming you meant 'make that orthogonal adjustable speed ship consisting of the glider + dot bounce reaction go much faster", the answer is in my previous reply: c/8 is as fast as it can be made to go. To go faster requires different reactions.

Re: Research on orthogonal lightspeed signals traveling through striped media

I hope to see some success with this investigation, though it seems to be tricky to get many things to work because it's so easy for zebra stripes to explode. I suspect though that, as dvgrn said, some tools other than brute force enumeration will be required. Java Life Search (JLS), Win Life Search...

How did you find them?
I used my usual technique for finding catalyst type reactions with JLS to find an appropriate type of spark, and then used a symmetric JLS oscillator search to find the individual oscillators.
