You can make both sides of this survive, making a P2 oscillator, also from 6 gliders:

This can be made from the penultimate step of the Grey Counter synthesis. One variant makes 16.1858 (useless, as it can be done much more cheaply from 7). Another useless variant almost makes an interesting inductor.

Combining a c2-0048-lwss-backrake with 2 fireships makes a growing spaceship with a 48-rake producing a glider in a 480-cycle. (I hope, that was the right term). Everery third lwss reacts with the fireships. The lwss-backrake is a little bit trivial. If there is a more advanced known?

Welcome to the board (if you haven't already been)! This pattern is not in standard Life, but we do have a corresponding thread in the Other Cellular Automata board.

If something ever converts an eater to a tailed loaf, here's something of use:

Also, here's a predecessor of a fairly rare but probably known constellation:

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 8, rule = B3/S23
4bo\$4b3o\$5bo4\$2o\$2o!

...and another:

Code: Select all

...and yet another:

This constellation is fairly common. There are many ways of forming this from as few as 3 gliders.

This is formed from two colliding traffic lights, which can easily be formed in a large number of ways.

I've always called it "W" for lack of a better name, because the components vaguely suggest that.
