Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Congratulations! Great to finally see progress in diagonal c/4 puffers after so many years! By now it should be relatively easy to create a script that simulates an incomplete puffer engine to get useful candidates. I remember that finding the first completion of the engine was quite tedious, so you...

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries

That reaction is one-sided and therefore potentially interesting for a caterpillar LWSS synthesis...

The lifewiki actually shows the block variant as an example for a one-sided glider synthesis.

Using ML to synthesize complex constellations

Given recent progress in slow salvo synthesis (like slmake) and also the progress in machine learning, where a lot is done in Python,wouldn‘t it be a good fit to let the machine learn how to build complex constellations efficiently through shorter slow salvoes? As there are so many paths leading to ...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

how would I go about searching for a component to switch from partial against the grain and partial with the grain to full against the grain Basically a two step approach: 1) Calculate the slope that a boundary consisting of a double DRH signal must have.

Re: Loafer rake made with copperhead technology

Great work!

My impression is that this area is rather unexplored as of now. So I’d like to see more rakes from non c/2 technology producing non c/2 output. How about an analogous 2c/7 rake for loafers based on the weekender distaff? Similar thing based on c/6 technology?

Re: Agar crawlers

Here is an old example of a2c/4 against the grain spaceship which shows how to flexibly increase and decrease the width of the grey part. This can be used inversly for the crawler. However, it is currently not clear to me how this will give a back corner for a 2c/4 crawler. x = 154, y = 296, rule = ...
