Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

This p12 traffic light hassler should be completable in one of two ways: 1. Double p6 domino sparker. Note where the sparks will be at generation 6; they won't interfere. snip 2. The sparks can be placed farther out one generation later. I tried two different welds, but neither one works. (The spar...

Is it about the 186P7H2V0 spaceship. I see there are a variant if you change the "ship´s legs" left to righ, and righ to left. Just that. Regards!
Though doing this does create a different spaceship, this was already known. The form on the wiki minimizes the bounding box.
