Re: Soup search results

Bump. New p7 found by Calcyman ,2021-01-09 ... the oscillator forms at exactly gen 11. Nice! There are 65 29-bit burloaferimiters, and this is one of the 35 without known syntheses. The synthesis should be fairly easy, given how it forms. Here is an attempt that misses the final step, although give...

Re: Results of catalyst tests

I think it's a good idea to run deeper searches on the most common active objects in conduits and standard modifications of such (e.g. Herschel, Herschel + standard modifying eater, pre-Herschel transparent block, pi, bookend, maybe earlier stages of R), if only because we'll likely find several spe...

Re: how about a sir robin synthesis?

Re: MWSS Single-Channel Construction

I ended up settling on using bk04a as the "default" target, as there are a multitude of target variations that give the same overall result (much like the glider+block->pi collision, but perhaps even more so), and I found ways to change it to other small targets.

Re: Thread for your chaos-edgeshooting reactions that can probably yield new conduits

Speaking of only having two ∏→∏ conduits, how do we not have a PF30 conduit (extracting the ∏ that already forms in the ∏-heptomino's evolution 30 generations later and 9 cells ahead)? Merely misguided expectations that it should be chainable like the P15 version: x = 37, y = 13, rule = LifeHistory...
