That's an interesting find; I wouldn't have thought of it. I suspect that there is probably a catalyst that can replace the block because the interaction is glancing, quick, and relatively simple.wwei23 wrote: ↑October 26th, 2020, 11:34 pmCode: Select all

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries
If there had been plenty of room around the sacrificial block, there would have been much more of a chance. Ultimately, though, an unfortunate truth about catalysis is that we don't have the technology to design bespoke onesand I'm skeptical that they can easily exist within the confines of a this chaotic cellular automaton. Bellman can't search deep enough to make sure.MathAndCode wrote: ↑October 27th, 2020, 3:38 pmHow in the future can I have a better idea of how promising partial conduits are?

I've stated a criterion for bait restoration before, and I stand by it: bait that is consumed slightly messily in the form of a small area of activity around it, with plenty of space outside of the other parts of the reaction envelope. Then you can try to finesse it a bit, but only a bit.
The best partials don't result in a specific output at all, but instead apply an unusual arrangement of catalysts to move the reaction somewhere wellseparated from them. Then you apply even more catalysts. You could consider starting from an intermediate of, for example, HRx334R:

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries
I just figured that since the interaction was brief, the block was just outside the edge of the reaction envelope (besides, of course, the block being destroyed, but the reaction did not later go back over that area), and the block did not seem to interact in a highly specific way, there would probably be a replacement catalyst.Kazyan wrote: ↑October 27th, 2020, 9:03 pmIf there had been plenty of room around the sacrificial block, there would have been much more of a chance.

By the way, which active region do you recommend would be the most useful for me to search for catalysts for? If I remember correctly, you recommended that I search for R−B converters because many converters made an Rpentomino facing the wrong way, but I've found several convertors for that, so can you think of anything else?
Edit: Actually, I misremembered what happened. I'll probably look for convertors accepting the sevencell diehard.
Another edit: Here's a way to convert it to a blockade that's probably useless due to clearance.

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries
The block does have those properties you describe. I think it comes down tot he shape of the possible catalyst that could replace the block, given the reaction envelopeif you look at the Bellman input file, you'll see that the business end of the block doesn't have much questionmark territory around it.MathAndCode wrote: ↑October 27th, 2020, 9:11 pmI just figured that since the interaction was brief, the block was just outside the edge of the reaction envelope (besides, of course, the block being destroyed, but the reaction did not later go back over that area), and the block did not seem to interact in a highly specific way, there would probably be a replacement catalyst.

As for active regions to search catalysts for, perhaps one half of a LoM explosion. It tends to split apart around generation 20.
