I believe the original 19glider synthesis was found by Jason Summers, although I don't know when, since it was from earlier than when I started keeping track of dates. Catagolue lists a 13glider one, but I don't know where that's from. This could be reduced to 12, if one could make the loaf+ship constellation from 3 gliders.

Note that loaf, ship and pi are all producible from blinker+glider, which might lead to further reduction. The idea doesn't help to reduce the loaf+ship, though:

Here's the key part (@ 1150) for the Confused Eaters:
Code: Select all
x=10, y=13
o$3o$3bo$2b2o3$6bo2$3bo3b2o$4b2o2b2o$5b2obo2$4bo!
Turning this into a construction would be a useful exercise for those wanting to try and see how it's done. The constructions I have take at least 25 Gliders, and do not attach to an existing Fishhook Eater, so finding this would make possible all sorts of Confused Eaterlike oscillators constructions.

No, because there are still gaps at 45k and 46k. My prediction is that more gaps will be created (beyond 47k) before you manage to fill those.
Methuselah bin is officially contiguous to 47k.

It seems either 1) John Goodman has broken SHA256, or 2) this is legitimately what we've all been waiting for: the first occurrence of a nonc/2 and nonglider spaceship in asymmetry. Congrats to John Goodman for the great find!

What an auspicious day for such a momentous discovery!
The soup seems to be a little too active to make for an easy new synthesis, but at least the loafer has the decency to wait until T=25 or so before making an appearance. Does this give any glidersynth experts any ideas about a new loafer recipe?
Offhand I'm not too hopeful that this will enable a 7Gorcheaper recipe, but I've been wrong before (once or twice).

Congratulations, even if the timing is crummy for credibility!
EDIT:
dvgrn humorously suggests this is the perfect timing on the discord:
Nah, it's a perfect date! Just imagine all the extra work J.G. had to go to to make this happen on just the right day  1. solve the P=NP problem; 2. hack apgsearch to submit a 25tick 16x16 predecessor of a loafer found using (1) on April 1st; 3. Profit (?).
