(34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
I wanted to post a couple of ways the current frontend could be finished. They are both proposals for creating NE gliders on the left side of the ship. I posted this in the ConwayLife lounge discord a while back and I want to post them here just for good measure.

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
For a while I was thinking of a solution shown here to create NE gliders coming from the left side of the ship (it's the 90 degree reflector mentioned in the second diagram) and I have tried constructing a NE reflector that doesn't resemble any of the diagrams in the above post. I tried making an alternative way to making this climber climb using gliders travelling NW, but I haven't found one that works so far.
Below is what I have tried so far:
If there is an alternative, I could use it to produce the NE travelling gliders by having a second stream of gliders collide with sparks (or with SE travelling gliders coming from the climber) to produce NE gliders.
It will look something like this: I was thinking we could write a script to find all possible combinations of NW glider + Herschel reactions and weeding out the useless reactions while storing any potential reactions and using one of them. I don't know any python or lua, so I will cross post this on the Script request thread so someone could write a script for it (and maybe give it this project a little more attention).
Below is what I have tried so far:

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
I found something on this thread that might help redesign the front end to take away the need for any forward travelling gliders (just in case we ever need to do so). It looks like this:
It will work kind of like a helix except instead of a glider bouncing back and forth, a Herschel is used for half of the reaction instead. And it should go without saying, but the LWSSs seen above are travelling towards the front of the ship to create the block lanes.
I'm sure it's possible to make something like the above for this caterpillar, and the "slope" for the XWSSs would have to look like this:

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
I'm pretty sure that there isn't going to be version of this climber using a glider that's coming from behind. Not only does the back of the glider have the wrong shape for the fairly particular reaction that's needed, but there's no way for it to get there because the Herschel's explosion is in the way. The chances of a completely unrelated glider reaction producing the exact same output B by sheer coincidence are extraordinarily low, so I'd be incredibly surprised if such a plan succeeded. A specially engineered glider salvo might be able to do the job, but then making such a salvo (probably) becomes at least as difficult as just making the block tracks directly.
The idea of laying down blocks directly from a helix should work in theory, but it won't be possible to have helix ships on both sides of where the block tracks are being laid, since there's no room for a LWSS to pass through the tracks. So the blocks have to be output on the side of the helix in order for that idea to work.

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Not everything has a name, you know. Climbers are almost never assigned names and we don't name spaceships until they're completed of course.
Don't know, I don't really want to be called by my current username anymore.

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
If it is the case that neither of those options would work. I can't really think of any other ways to make the frontend by avoiding exponential growth that starts with the size of the already existing frontend partial.Sphenocorona wrote: ↑December 14th, 2020, 11:55 pmI'm pretty sure that there isn't going to be version of this climber using a glider that's coming from behind.

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
I came up with a new design for the frontend that might be able to reduce or keep the same rough size of the current frontend. It might also be able to solve the NE glider problem I have been having. I am already constructing some of the parts for the frontend.
If every XWSS in the XWSS lanes (brown line) is an LWSS, they will also be made with the above RLE. I am working on making a rake that will create the gliders in the above reflector and I will post it here when I finish. I already finished a sideways LWSS rake and it can be found as the last post in the previous page.
Side note: I found this reaction inside the waterbear, so credit goes to the person that discovered it.
The LWSS lanes (red line) will be created by a reflected LWSS, as seen below:

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Progress I made so far on the above frontend design. It's not much and I'm having trouble figuring out how to complete it. Once the LWSS and XWSS lanes are finished and once the NW glider rakes in the above design is complete (not the blue lone the grey line) I can complete the caterpillar frontend.
(also, this is my 101st post ever!)
EDIT 1: I think I should have made it more clear that I need help with this specific part of the frontend

This is a reference to your diagram from January 6th, right? The red, green, and grey lines converging at the top, all seem to be represented here.
So do I have the idea right, that the remaining problem to find a minimal (or minimalish) set of XWSS streams to turn NW glider rake outputs into these NEtraveling glider streams?

Yes, this is all a reference to my diagram from January 6th.
"I didn't understand the part about "(not the blue [line,] the grey line)". Can you clarify?"
The blue line in the January 6th diagram represents NW glider rakes that produce the NW gliders that will shoot NW gliders into the XWSS stream to turn them into NEtravelling gliders. These NW glider rakes already exist, and were made by AbhpzTa in this post. All that has to be done with these NW glider rakes is to align them properly on the block tracks (using rephaser rakes where necessary) so they can aim NW gliders at the set of XWSS streams so they can reflect the NW gliders to the NE direction.
The diagram has 2 types of grey lines. The grey lines labeled "NW gliders" are part of a WIP NW glider rake I'm building that has an output as seen in the rle in the same post as the Jan. 6th diagram. This stream of NW gliders will reflect the sideways LWSSs (which are the grey lines labeled "Sideways LWSS") 90 degrees to face upwards and "turn" into the red line in the diagram.
"So do I have the idea right, that the remaining problem to find a minimal (or minimalish) set of XWSS streams to turn NW glider rake outputs into these NEtraveling glider streams?"
That is not the only problem. In fact, there are actually 3 remaining problems. The first problem is that I need to redesign your frontend (or make a similar frontend that uses the same idea as Upward LWSS + NEtravelling glider = block) so that NW gliders can travel through the LWSS streams, but I am having trouble with this. The second problem is that I am also having trouble building the NW glider rake that is responsible for reflecting the LWSS lanes. The third problem is the one you mentioned where we need to find a "set of XWSS streams to turn NW glider rake outputs into these NEtraveling glider streams".
Once all of these problems have been solved, and the part of the frontend in the Jan. 6th diagram is assembled, I can build the rest of the LWSS streams (the red line in the Jan. 6th diagram) using the Sideways LWSS rake + NW glider = Upward LWSS technology. If the XWSS streams are only made of LWSSs, I can use the current LWSS reflector technology to finish the rest of the frontend. Otherwise, if the XWSS streams contain MWSSs or HWSSs, new technology will have to be built that produces sideways MWSSs or HWSSs, and technology that reflects MWSSs and HWSSs upwards will also have to be built.

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Great, thanks for the comprehensive summary! Let's see, I built that front end very quickly as a prototype, without worrying about permeability for NW gliders at all. I can try working on Problem #1 by rebuilding for maximum permeability, and see what happens.PC101 wrote: ↑January 23rd, 2021, 11:33 pm... there are actually 3 remaining problems.

Hopefully we can attract some more contributors to work on Problems #2 and #3. You've made a lot of progress, and have been very patient about asking for help. In my experience, most people are irrationally afraid of megaspaceship projects  and this one is looking to be more like a gigaspaceship, unless someone can come up with significant optimizations to the design (or new technology).
Have any other blocktrail spacings come up that might work better for building rakes and rephasers, or should I just stick with the version from my prototype front end?
Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Not that I'm aware of, and no new ones have come up in this thread. I think you should stick with your version from your prototype.

I found 2 almostXWSS streams that are really close but don't work:

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
Here is a list of all the Upward XWSS lanes + NW glider = NE glider I could find to solve problem #3:
How to interpret this list:
 Check marks above the reflections mean that they can work for this velocity
 X marks mean that the reflections don't work for this velocity
 The one question mark means I had trouble modifying it and I'm not sure if I can reduce it to 2 LWSSs.
Here are all the reflections above actually reflecting gliders to demonstrate which reflections work and which ones don't work:
EDIT 1 (Feb. 1st, 2021):
This reflection uses 1 LWSS and seems to work:
Until you test it:
So the search continues.
EDIT 2:
I found a 2 LWSS stream reflector but it doesn't work for this slope

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
this could be a good start. for example, some of the gliders can be used to clean up the blocks like this:dvgrn wrote: ↑May 21st, 2019, 6:18 pmSadly, it's not at all clear that a slow salvo could push targets away nearly fast enough to keep up with the sideways motion of the ship.
 Which probably means it's time to experiment with building sideways *WSS rakes next, along the lines of Sphenocorona's diagram, and hitting them with forward glider streams to get either slowsalvo targets or direct upship streams. Anyone want to try putting together a more detailed diagram, maybe with construction just on the left side (for AbhpzTa's component orientation)? Or some different more workable front end for the six block trails? In particular, Sphenocorona suggested building up to six block trails  maybe using an upship stream on the right, once we put together rightside forerakes and backrakes  starting from these two trails:

working on making a (13,4)c/41 spaceship
Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
What are you trying to do? Are you trying to create upward LWSS streams?C28 wrote: ↑February 8th, 2021, 10:29 amthis could be a good start. for example, some of the gliders can be used to clean up the blocks like this:dvgrn wrote: ↑May 21st, 2019, 6:18 pmSadly, it's not at all clear that a slow salvo could push targets away nearly fast enough to keep up with the sideways motion of the ship.
 Which probably means it's time to experiment with building sideways *WSS rakes next, along the lines of Sphenocorona's diagram, and hitting them with forward glider streams to get either slowsalvo targets or direct upship streams. Anyone want to try putting together a more detailed diagram, maybe with construction just on the left side (for AbhpzTa's component orientation)? Or some different more workable front end for the six block trails? In particular, Sphenocorona suggested building up to six block trails  maybe using an upship stream on the right, once we put together rightside forerakes and backrakes  starting from these two trails:

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar
I did some testing and it turns out that this design is not possible due to the fact that NW glider streams and NE glider streams cannot intersect without colliding.PC101 wrote: ↑December 10th, 2020, 5:55 pmI wanted to post a couple of ways the current frontend could be finished. They are both proposals for creating NE gliders on the left side of the ship. I posted this in the ConwayLife lounge discord a while back and I want to post them here just for good measure.

We are still going to continue building the frontend design I posted here.
