I don't know if this has been discovered yet, but I found that the under-weight spaceship (UWSS)
eventually becomes a fleet:

That one's been around a while. The standard name for that glider output is "SE-2T80".

When you come up with a possibly-new Herschel-to-glider converter, it's a good idea to run this script on it before posting it.

The script will spit out a standard identifier for the H-to-G, like this -- NW31T120, SE-2T80, SW-2T21 -- and then you can do a forum search on the identifier text to see if it's already known:

SW-2T21 and NW31T120 are the Herschel's first and second natural gliders. SE-2T80 also has had a known H-to-G converter since the late 1990s.

As it happens, the exact same set of catalysts can be found in the Elementary Conduits collection, with an extra beehive on top to suppress the NW31 glider. Your rediscovery is a very thorough one!

I was wondering whether or not there's a way to make a queen bee shuttle last for four or five iterations before exploding. Instead, a set of three or four observations led to this.

Code: Select all

x = 22, y = 7, rule = B3/S23

Also, here's the most iterations that I achieved.

EDIT: That's where the 8-cell paperclip predecessor was from (I think I might have found it when looking in a soup or something).
