Here's a mostly transparent block reaction.

Code: Select all

``````x = 15, y = 4, rule = B3/S23
2o11bo\$2o10b2o\$13b2o\$14bo!``````
I remember seeing something similar for the I-heptomino, but I wasn't able to complete it into a conduit, so I didn't post it because I hadn't made this thread yet.
Also, here is a completely transparent block reaction.

Edit: I just realized that the century reaction is for the I-heptomino.
I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.

Code: Select all

The reaction edgeshoots chaos off decently far, but I'm having difficulty suppressing the beehives.

Code: Select all

``````x = 7, y = 17, rule = LifeHistory

Putting another pi in the same place temporarily undoes it. This could be useful for a 2P→X.

Edit:

### Re: Thread for your reactions that might be useful for conduits

well, I guess I would post here instead of unsure/useless discovery, a sacrificial tub allows the normal Hershel sequence to produce a glider instead of its first natural block, and a spark might restore it in theory, though that might be a tall order:

Code: Select all

``````x = 38, y = 19, rule = LifeHistory

The reaction is general enough that it might be possible to use a permanent catalyst.

Here's a G output with some potential to get an additional signal out, except that there's an annoying HF (or Pi without the B's block) spit back towards where the B originates:

I have tried other method of stabilizing it, but none have come nearly as close. I suspect that Kazyan can find a block replacement that recovers more slowly if necessary.
