(I'm sure it can be drastically improved.)

The pattern consists of five parts: an MWSS gun, an MWSS backrake, and three puffers, one of which just lays blocks. Here's how it works: an MWSS gets fired from the gun. It destroys itself using the block, and turns one of the MWSSs from the backrake into a glider. However, if there is an MWSS at a certain point closer to the gun, it kills the outgoing MWSS. In this way, a loop of increasing period is formed. At the same time, another puffer is forming constellations of blocks and beehives that will turn gliders into LWSSs. Also, a third puffer below the first two creates glider guns, along with eaters to get rid of the output. Now, back to the glider. It hits the constellation, turns into an LWSS, travels south, hits the eater, and destroys that and itself. This allows the output of that glider gun to escape. (The time between consecutive eater removals increases linearly.)

As a bonus, here is a(nother) sqrtgun, based off of the log(t)^2 growth:

A smaller sqrtgun feeds into a NOT gate, of which the output, if it's not zero, destroys a rake coming from a rake factory. So rakes get "let out" at ever increasing intervals. (The sqrtgun uses codeholic's first 15x15 salvo.)

I may rework the other one soon.

There must be a better way to push block diagonally and return the glider other than with 5 gliders. 3-4 should be enough.

Google "sqrtgun" to see some of Dean Hickerson's original O(t^0.5) guns. He was able to do it with a salvo of 3 gliders.

You probably meant this one.

He uses this recipe:

Code: Select all

#C [[ THUMBNAIL WIDTH 480 LOOP 200 ZOOM 6 AUTOSTART ]]
x = 24, y = 39, rule = B3/S23

The challenge was also to move it to a certain distance.
