G1 outputs can be kind of handy, because any lane with either glider color at 90 degrees to the G1 can be reached by adding a semi-cenark, usually with a couple of different choices for timing mod 8.
Can't we just use a highway robber to separate the gliders?
"Just"? Sure, we could, but what on Earth would be the point? Highway robbers are huge and painfully slow compared to any number of known G-to-2G conduits.

(And really this B266 G1 is just a little too big and awkward already to be much of any practical use. It probably won't be showing up very often in glider-adjustment circuitry, because we already have smaller options.)

I believe that changing which input glider results in an output glider results additional output timings mod 8.

Yes, in addition to the distance to the reflector in full-diagonals, there are three independent binary decisions:
  • Whether to reflect to the left or the right;
  • Which of the two gliders creates an output glider (this affects the output glider colour);
  • Whether to use a CC or CP semi-cenark (also affects the output glider colour).
This gives exactly two timing choices for each output lane.

Sometimes you get unlucky and there's an overlap in mod-8 timing choices for two of the combinations, but not in this case it looks like.

For the CP turn (only) there's a third equally compact timing option available, using just a regular Snark and suppressing the second glider:

... Any hope of getting another glider out somewhere, while keeping the Spartan-ness and the 74-tick repeat time? That would really revolutionize single-channel construction, since SingleChannel74 is (probably) quite a bit more efficient than SingleChannel90.

Maybe there's a different way to perturb that active reaction (the one that eventually settles into a beehive by itself) to release a glider, possibly using transparent bait?

Maybe there's a different way to perturb that active reaction (the one that eventually settles into a beehive by itself) to release a glider, possibly using transparent bait?
I last investigated that 5-6 years ago, and there was a result like this, but maybe it could be looked into for a glider output as well.

As for why I thought that it was okay to post this here instead of in the H->G thread, I remembered EvinZL's post and made the opposite change, resulting in a Bx106 Herschel conduit without an Fx119 output that must be deleted if wanted.

There's no need to guess about this kind of thing. Just select the pattern you posted in Golly and run the script in the first post, and subtract 31 minus 2 -- it's definitely a G29.

Then look up NW2T132 in the "NW2" section in the H-to-G collection, and you'll find it's already there, and has been there for something like half a decade.

The standard form of the single-output NW2T132 is Spartan, using a beehive and block instead of the 16-bit catalyst at the top. There's also a slightly less obtrusive position for the eater at the bottom:

Possibly the 16-bit catalyst will be useful in a few rare situations where the beehive doesn't fit. The NW2T132 has never really seen all that much use anyway, though, because of the relatively poor repeat time.

I found a completely different method for a getting Bx106 without the Fx119 output that at first glance looks great.

The problem is that the output Herschel's first natural glider hits the ship if it isn't stopped, an eater 5 doesn't fit, and feeding the output Herschel into a dependent conduit with the standard transparent block hits the fishhook that deleted the input Herschel's first block if there is one and turns the block into a honey farm if there isn't, so the conduit requires a 7×9 eater weld that I'm positive isn't Spartan in order to be able to feed its output into anything.

The search for a good pure Bx106 continues.



Edit: The search is over now.

Code: Select all

x = 40, y = 28, rule = B3/S23
2o$bo12bo$bobo10b3o5b2o$2b2o2b2o9bo4b2o$6b2o8b2o4$b2o4b2o$b2o4b2o6$36b

Here's a version without the leftover block in case it becomes useful in the future:

Code: Select all

36b2o$36bobo$38bo$38b2o5$26b3o$17b2o8bo$18bo6b3o$15b3o$15bo!


Another edit: I removed a block from the version that might become useful in the future.

Code: Select all

x = 40, y = 28, rule = B3/S23
2o25bo$bo23b3o$bobo20bo$2b2o2b2o16b2o$6b2o4$b2o4b2o$b2o4b2o6$36b2o$36b

It can be replaced with an eater 2 in order to handle the output Herschel's first natural glider, but since there is already a block-fishhook pair that can serve the same point, that is useless for most purposes.

Code: Select all

x = 40, y = 31, rule = B3/S23
