Re: 13131: The B-Heptomino/Glider Spaceship Thread

After some thoughts, maybe there is no space on the left side for anything *but* the main helix. It seems it would be best to fork the glider it produces on the upper-rightmost position (hence on the right side) and build the block trail from the right only, something like the following: x = 325, y ...

I think that spine can be broken, at least with that block trail, it is easy to duplicate the spine (far further below) and try to end it cleanly while potentially throwing some NW gliders. Assuming we get to pick carefully the phase/position of SW gliders we can make the following contraption: x = ...

Ok, I guess I really did not know much about this b-heptomino spaceship, like that rephasing cleanely a single glider stream is trivial, and it does not do much (same lane, speeds up by 5 ticks). Well, I will add another block laying mecanism then, at least that one might be of some use: x = 242, y ...

FOUR GLIDERS??? O_O
indeed, and also a repeat time of +- 83 which is quite impressive, and that repeat time can improved if 1 SW glider is suppressed.
