I'm guessing xs44. C1 is the only symmetry that's not seen one of those yet; xs39's have only sprung up in some D symmetries yet. There's also been more distinct xs44's in symmetries that have both.Alexey_Nigin wrote:Survey: https://twitter.com/AlexeyNigin/status/ ... 9047070720

(All this makes sense to me given that 44 is divisible by 4, too. On that note I wouldn't be surprised if the first C symmetry to see an xs39 is C2_1.)

I saw this, but the predecessor didn't look easy to synthesize. I guess I didn't look far enough back. Even a naive 12 gliders is quite an improvement over the previous 16 (which was the only synthesis known)!Kazyan wrote:A natural quad has appeared, and its soup yields a naive 12-glider synthesis: ...

Interesting. The Coe ship starts as an otherwise viable LWSS on MWSS, but with 1 cell more, thet doesn't destroy the structure.

Oh, and by the way, congratulations!

... maybe the loafer is next? It has less cells at it's minimal phase, after all...

Wow! This is amazing!

Congratulations to Adam, and here is another simple predecessor for the natural Coe Ship:

The problem with that being that ongoing reactions can catch and destroy a loafer far easier then a standard spaceship or flotilla due to its slow speed and lack of explosion-stopping sparks. There's probably a loafer in a catagolue haul somewhere that couldn't survive long enough to be recognized.towerator wrote:Interesting.

I just enumerated the results of running all 3x7 patterns. Here is the output file from my latest hacked version of apgsearch:
Symmetrical objects seem to be much more common in small soups than 16x16 ones. The pulsar and the pentadecathlon experience a large increase in frequency. My favorite result, however, is this 12-cell pattern that produces a snake and a beehive on cap in only 28 gens:

of flowers, to jump universes to one of springtime in

a land of former winter, where no invisible walls stood,

or could stand for more than a few hours at most...

The following trans griddle on griddle appeared out of an asymmetric soup:

http://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp2 ... 1d13/b3s23.

Unfortunately, the way it forms doesn't seem to form any useful predecessors, but this has also occurred many times in symmetric soups. The first one leads to a 15-glider synthesis (plus a few other related ones, including the now laughably obsolete griddle on two blocks). The third soup leads to a 10 glider synthesis:

Nice! This allows syntheses of things where the test tube baby is attached (e.g. tied or inducted) to something else difficult to grow from something simpler (e.g. griddle, pseudo barber pole, or pseudo-objects formed from one of the ends). What is still missing is a way to grow a test tube baby from an eater or integral, for objects like two test tube babies eating each other, Silver's P5 on test tube baby, roteightor w/test tube baby, etc. (Another unsolved problem is how to grow a griddle from a simpler object, to make things like pseudo barber pole on griddle.)Extrementhusiast wrote:And here's a ship-to-test-tube-baby component: ...

There are 2 new p5 surprises in Catagolue. The first one is that Silver's p5 (with an eater) just occurred:

Another cute pair of interacting switch engines. This one is pretty clean, the offshoots of the glider-emitting SE go into the blocks laid by the block-laying SE but fizzle into ash quickly. Adam, we appreciate the large quantity of CPU hours you're contributing, keep on finding nice new things!

Simon Rawles and I have found the third and fourth phoenix, respectively.

(By the way, congratulations on your collaborative 8-glider synthesis! That's a huge improvement from the original 24 as reported on Mark Niemiec's website.)

What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the *mono*-clinic!

I haven't for a while and won't for at least a couple more weeks. I am still running on 16 cores of a shared machine, but it seemed harder to get any portion of the lab computers to stay running for more than a day or so, compared to the relative ease last spring and summer, so I more or less gave up there.calcyman wrote:Do you still have access to your swathes of computing power?
