Synthesis base?

Code: Select all

``````x = 13, y = 13, rule = B3/S23
2b3o\$bo3bo\$o5bo\$o5bo\$o5bo\$bo3bo\$2b3o3b3o2\$6bo5bo\$6bo5bo\$6bo5bo2\$8b3o!
``````
That looks promising. While I was working on it, I accidentally switched the timing of the honey farm predecessor and found a (brief) trio of beacons.

Code: Select all

``````x = 11, y = 12, rule = B3/S23
b2o\$o2bo\$3o3\$6b3o2\$4bo5bo\$4bo5bo\$4bo5bo2\$6b3o!``````

Edit: I managed to extract them.

Code: Select all

``````x = 19, y = 19, rule = B3/S23
16bo\$15bo\$15b3o5\$9b2o\$8bo2bo\$8b3o3\$14b3o2\$12bo5bo\$b2o9bo5bo\$obo9bo5bo\$2bo\$14b3o!``````

Another edit: I just found this.

Code: Select all

``````x = 21, y = 23, rule = B3/S23
17bo\$17bobo\$17b2o\$14bo\$12b2o\$13b2o6\$19b2o\$18b2o\$13bo6bo\$4bo7b2o\$4bo7b
obo\$4bo2\$3o3b3o2\$4bo\$4bo\$4bo!``````
However, the reaction looks somewhat familiar, so it might already be known.

Unluckily, all these have been found with similar reaction that cost less gliders!

32-cell 35×46 50458M adapted from 50752M by rliston, if you don't mind the missing FNG in the final census:

Code: Select all

``````x = 35, y = 46, rule = B3/S23
18bo\$18bo\$6bo11bo\$6bo\$bo4bo\$2o4\$14bo18bo\$13bobo17b2o\$13b2o4\$8b3o\$6b3o
25\$21bo\$22bo\$18b2o2bo\$19b3o\$20bo!
``````
Here's a smaller version that lasts three generations longer:

Code: Select all

``````x = 35, y = 45, rule = B3/S23
\$17b3o2\$5b3o\$bo\$2o4\$14bo18bo\$13bobo17b2o\$13b2o3\$8bo\$7b3o\$7bo\$7bo24\$21b
o\$21bo\$18b3obo\$21bo!``````
I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.
