At generation 72, this produces a B heptomino!
Well yes, seeing how it's a switch engine (generation 15 is same as generation 2 of the "standard" shape, plus a few sparks)

First question ever. Often referred to as The Question. When this question is asked in right place in right time, no one can lie. No one can abstain. But when The Question is asked, silence will fall. Silence must fall. The Question is: Doctor Who?

When I hit the "cis-mirrored R-bee" with another glider (as shown in the pattern below), it made a honeyfarm one cell away from the original. This I made into a gg-gun assisted oscillator to put the honeyfarm back. Cool reaction beebop!

Made this when trying to make a spaceship. It sends gliders back in the direction they came from hence the name Glider Reverser.

Code: Select all

And another one...
This one destroys an incoming glider and recreates it a few cells to the right to travel in the direction it came from.
I call it a Glider Hairpin

If we could find a way to easily synthesize those, it could be made into a reflector. Unfortunately, it would only produce a 180 degree reflector, which has sharply limited use.

This one don't reverse glider. During it's evolution this creates glider which don't interact with incoming one. Incoming glider just destroys little pattern which evolves into block. So in here glider just destroys block, but is not reversed.
You can see that in generation 10 where both (incoming and outcoming) gliders are visible

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 12, rule = B3/S23

Yes, was thinking about that or maybe making a different version of the infinate glider hotel but many gliders would be destroyed, also the breeder really needed to be a puffer so a glider could stimulate it's production for the incoming glider. Main problem is timing and glider spacing

This one don't reverse glider. During it's evolution this creates glider which don't interact with incoming one. Incoming glider just destroys little pattern which evolves into block. So in here glider just destroys block, but is not reversed.
You can see that in generation 10 where both (incoming and outcoming) gliders are visible

What?! What you've done there is put a glider next to a glider eater so the incoming glider is destroyed and another random one takes it's place. It's not what I did!

This pattern produces generation 2 of the R-Pentomino's life cycle plus a 3 cell spark, (which soon decays), on generation 13. Still a cool reaction.
