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.

I searched for a way to suppress the glider but couldn't find one. Can anyone else?

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

Code: Select all

```
x = 40, y = 31, rule = B3/S23
20bo$20b3o$23bo$2o20b2o$bo$bobo21b2o$2b2o2b2o16bobo$6b2o16b2o4$b2o4b2o

```

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.

Code: Select all

```
x = 40, y = 34, rule = B3/S23

```

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

```
x = 40, y = 28, rule = B3/S23
2o$bo$bobo9b2o7b2o$2b2o2b2o6bo7b2o$6b2o6bobo$15b2o3$b2o4b2o$b2o4b2o6$
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
obo$38bo$38b2o5$26b3o$17b2o8bo$18bo6b3o$15b3o$15bo!
```

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
26bo$25bobo$25bobo$2o22b2ob3o$bo28bo$bobo20b2ob3o$2b2o2b2o16b2obo$6b2o

3o$15bo!
```

Yet another edit: This almost lets the output Herschel's first natural glider out.

Code: Select all

```
x = 40, y = 28, rule = B3/S23
2o$bo$bobo$2b2o2b2o4b2o$6b2o5bo$13bobo$14b2o2$b2o4b2o$b2o4b2o6$36b2o$

I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.
