This is the thread, as stated in the title, for your accidental discoveries. B-heptomino to glider:

Code: Select all

``````x = 47, y = 39, rule = B3/S23

Oops, looks like this isn't it.

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

Run Mark Niemeic's B-heptomino syntheses and you may notice a middleweight spaceship. The essential reaction is captured below:

I discovered that a p30 Gosper Glider Gun can be used to invert a glider coming from the front:

Code: Select all

``````x = 36, y = 24, rule = B3/S23
24bo\$22bobo\$12b2o6b2o12b2o\$11bo3bo4b2o12b2o\$2o8bo5bo3b2o\$2o8bo3bob2o4b
obo\$10bo5bo7bo\$11bo3bo\$12b2o13\$27b3o\$27bo\$28bo!
``````
I was firing said gun into a debris field. A glider came back towards the gun very close to the stream. I thought for sure the gun was done for and was amazed when the gun survived and a hole was left in the glider stream.

I tried pairing two p30s together. The reaction takes out two incoming gliders and one outgoing glider:

Code: Select all

``````x = 132, y = 114, rule = B3/S23

Trying to use it as a memory loop in the traditional way failed (It erased the information):

Code: Select all

However, It does work as a memory loop to store groups of one or two gliders, with one empty space between each group (Distance between guns lengthened to better show that the memory is stored.):

In 16 generations there will be another B-heptomino, 8 cells advanced vertically from its starting location. The debris will vaporize but gets in the way of a repeat of the reaction.

It's p480, but it isn't a "pure" heisenburp because the glider gets affected.

I was originally trying to make a puffer, when I found this interesting thing a while ago:

I named it Base.rle for some reason.

It "sorts" out gliders.

Oops! It may very well be yours, I did not file it properly in the correct directory and with your name in the title, sorry about that. I did add the catalyst to it though. I have literally tens of thousands of saved patterns and they are not well organized/documented.

That could make a relatively cheap glider synthesis. One would have to hit it with random gliders to get rid of the extra debris, but if we're lucky it will take just one, resulting in a 6-glider synthesis (we probably aren't so lucky).

for now, 8-glider synthesis:

Which, using a reaction by Mark Neimiec, can be turned into the 18 bit still life using 3 more Gliders

Code: Select all

A little more research shows that the P4 is uses a rotor compatible to one found by Dean Hickerson. This oscillator is shown at the top, the next two are hybrids consisting of old and new halves, while the bottom is another variation of Hickerson's oscillator I didn't have in my lists.
