Stabilizes at generation 11458 with 25 gliders.
Based on the longest lasting HWSS/glider collision I found previously.
Wow, this gives an idea how enormous is number of distinct 5-glider collisions, at least as many as possible collisions of one glider with any point of spacetime in this pattern! This IS enormous.
There are also 137 pi+block or pi+blinker collisions that last 2000+ gens (see my 8-cell noncompact methuselahs topic), and someone posted an R+block collision erlier in this thread that also runs 10k+ gens…

I'm also willing to bet there's a pi+glider collision that lasts at least 8k gens, possibly 10k+; I've charted about a third of one phase of one collision direction, and I've already found a collision running 5800+ gens:

Code: Select all

x = 14, y = 9, rule = B3/S23

It's "known" in the sense of being one of the 672172 22-cell still lifes, but I don't think that fits into any known naming scheme. It seems best considered part of a family of still lifes featuring a central table supported from all corners; yours has 2 boats and 2 preblocks while the simplest example would have simply 4 preblocks:

For example, under the "Glider synthesis" tab of its page on the LifeWiki:
http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Lightweight_spaceship
The pattern "lwss_synth.rle" lists four different syntheses from 3 gliders, and a few other syntheses as well.

Depends on what you're trying to do.
for example
FInd the minimum structure who can create the "Lightweight_spaceship" (not its composition)

so
It's writed " Patterns that can be constructed with 3 gliders
is not what I search ;)
I have missunderstood this : it was a construction, not the result of a creation from existing structure

That's kind of getting outside the topic of "accidental discoveries", but no matter.

I think the 8-cell "hull" of the spaceship is itself the smallest ancestor:

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 4, rule = B3/S23
3bo$4bo$o3bo$b4o!
But there are other 8-cell patterns that can create an LWSS, such as:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 19, rule = B3/S23
5b3o17$b3o$o2bo!
Achim F's natural Life objects page also lists the size of minimal precedessors ("mPr") of some smaller objects. I'm not aware any more in-depth listings of these statistics (too bad).

I think a more useful concept would actually be the smallest distinct ancestor; eg. the snake and clock may be 6-cell objects, but their smallest ancestor that isn't a clock or snake to begin with is probably larger.

(I know an 8-cell pattern that creates a snake:

Code: Select all

x = 15, y = 11, rule = B3/S23
14bo$14bo$14bo7$3o$o2bo!
I'm not sure if there is one of 7 cells.)

yes this one is interesting because it's a real creation 8)

the first one is just a cycling period of a LWSS not really a creation :)

Gosper glider guns' gliders stabilize incomplete Gosper glider guns which are in turn stabilizing another incomplete gun.

If this is hard to follow then see the following RLE:

While experimenting with blocks and beehives I came across a pattern that stabilizes into four boats at Generation 55. Not very interesting on its own but I have a feeling it could be useful for larger projects:

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 28, rule = B3/S23

I don't know the exact chance, but even a single switch engine is rather rare...

In fact the discontinued soup search failed to reveal any switch engines.

From what I understand, the soup search did find switch engines, but Nathaniel needed to clean up the data and add the patterns to the online list before they were publicly displayed, which he didn't ever get around to doing (see here and here). That being said, a 20x20 soup that produces two switch engines is probably quite rare.

According to Achim's Game of Life Page (exactly this one http://wwwhomes.uni-bielefeld.de/achim/moving.html) block-laying switch engine appears approximately in one of 220000 soups, and glider switch engine in one of 600000 soups. So probabilities are around 1/220000 and 1/600000, respectively. Appearing of switch engines can be counted as independent events, so mathematical probability of simultaneous appearing of these two switch engines is around (1/220000)*(1/600000)=1/(220000*600000)=1/132000000000≈0,0000000007%. Probability is one in over one hundred thousand million! And they appeared in 20x20 soup! I can't believe in that!

Yes, but on one of yours threads it is said that this number is a lot smaller (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=832) but I can't said how big is that
