I doubt that it would be possible to get a conduit out of this (although that's what I thought last time).

I was wrong.

Code: Select all

```
x = 36, y = 31, rule = B3/S23
2o$bo$bobo$2b2o2$9bo15b2o$9b3o13bo$10bo15bo$25b2o2$32b2o$32bo$33bo$32b2o2$19bo2bo9b2o$17b2o4b2o6bobo$19bo2bo9bo$22b2ob2o6b3o$24b2ob2o6bo$22bo2bo$20b3o3b3o$22bo$22b2obo$23bo2bo$26bo$23bo2bo$24b2o2b2o$28bobo$30bo$30b2o!
```

Edit: Here is a demonstration that it can be connected to other conduits (between an intentionally messy RF28B and a Bx222).

Code: Select all

The BFx1H only needs to have trailing junk behind the B-heptomino if it is not followed by a dependent conduit, but dependent conduits are dependent on the input object being formed in the standard manner (which is not the original meaning of dependent, but I like this one better because it allows the term to be applied to conduits accepting objects besides Herschels), the only dependent conduit that accepts an object that enters the Herschel sequence so late is

L122, which doesn't fit in this case, so I will try to find a conduit that can make the R-pentomino (obviously with the Herschel going into a different conduit) or an alternative way to make the B-heptomino. (Does anyone know of conduits that turn an active region into a B-heptomino with some junk just behind it?)

Another edit: I somehow made a Herschel going in the opposite direction (although it's definitely useless unless, at the very least, someone finds a more compact V-sparker).
