I think you mean a sequence of p60(2n+1) guns starting at p300.

There is actually a known 180-degree p30 reflector with the same lane and timing. This allows the series to start at p180:

Unfortunately, this still doesn't allow the p60 gun, as it is impossible to fit the necessary p5 or p6 sparker that close to the queen bees (according to JLS).

If not queen bees, why not a boojum reflector?

The rectifier/boojum reflector has the wrong lane separation (9 instead of 6), and is too slow (minimum repeat time of 106 instead of 60).

But I think it is not easy to construct the oscillators from it, but at least something p38.

I actually posted the first of these over nine years ago. (Golly, has it been that long already?)

A non-trivial p92 with population 50 (tie with the optimum):

Code: Select all

``````x = 32, y = 34, rule = B3/S23

It should allow a large p92 with volatility 1 (but not strict).

It should allow a large p92 with volatility 1 (but not strict).
This was found by Ivan Fomichev a few years back.

Yes. My notes tell me that A for Awesome reported ths cis version in a soup on 2016-03-19 from which chris_c developed a 16 glider synthesis on the same day (although I can't find either post). This trans version was an obvious derivative.

Also, I see several 256x1 soups shown that claim to make this, but don't.

Thanks for noticing that; when I altered /hashsoup to work for hexagonal rules, it broke the 8x32, 4x64, 2x128 and 1x256 symmetries. I've now repaired that, and the soups produce what they claim:

I seem to recall that this oscillator and its relatives were originally found by Nicolay Beluchenko, although I can't confirm that at the moment.

I wonder if this P4 could have a use:

Code: Select all

I see a smaller p4 in that:

A special p5 sparker:

It might be known but this type of sparker seems to be not listed jslife.

Of course it is a long way, but for p11+ it might allow guns together with some high-period '(pre)block-sparker'

Code: Select all

``````x = 13, y = 5, rule = B3/S23

It's definitely an idea, but do notice that the repeat times are 16 and 15, respectively.
LifeWiki: Like Wikipedia but with more spaceships. [citation needed]

Yes, this is the repeat time of the full reaction (and obliviously there is no gun at p11). The spark can reappear after 11 generation. Thus it would to have e.g. a p11 sparker and a p22 'blocklayer' to get a gun. I wanted to point out that it would not work to take a p10 sparker with a p20 'blocklayer' as the spark would be too close to the glider and destroy it.

I did not find a suitable p20 sparker that fits to hassle this 5bit spark:

Code: Select all

``````x = 3, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
2bo2\$2o\$2o\$o!
``````
Still, this reaction is not listed in the jslife osc-supported. But it looks too simple to be not known.

Edit1:
something similar for p24:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
3bo\$2bobo\$2bo\$o2bo\$o!
``````

Two different p6 hassler of a related spark (and a combination - right), might be known (but is not in jslife):
