Can it not be made smaller with Michael Simkin's small p120 gun?
Yup, that does cut it down quite a bit:

But here's a smaller one by David Eppstein from the previous millennium (if you count 2000 as the last year of the thousand years, like you're officially supposed to):

The one with the small p120 seems to have the smallest population and the fewest exotic components, so I'm going with that.

so I suspect minimizing the bounding box is not his goal. Even so, your glider gun reorientation does reduce the bounding box of the "simple" gun a bit:

Correct. I'm working on simplifying my ancient extensible delay loop in the "components and contraptions" thread. It is much smaller than I ever imagined it being at time. I want a small, compact gun, but some of my criteria are more subjective.

With the latest minimization, a p120 recirculating MWSS loop seems small enough to consider in a design even if you're not looking to expand the size. Non-destructive reads become trivial and you get two streams of bit output for free.

ADDED: is there any reason not to do this at p60? I forget why I settled on p120. Sorry, not thinking clearly this morning. I assume p120 is to match the streams coming back from the best puffers I knew of at the time.

ADDED: Hmm... OK, at p60 the MWSSs don't always pass each others, sometimes they mutually annihilate. I wonder if this could be a natural computer for some linear congruential generator. I can't figure out the dynamics just looking. It may be less interesting than that and just filter it down to a p120 stream with gaps.

This mwss-constructor is doubtless known.

Code: Select all

The two cells can be taken of a hwss.

$bo4bo$2b2obo$b2o2b3o2$5b2o$3bo4bo$9bo$3bo5bo$4b6o!

Well, you've got Gardens of Eden, which by definition are unsynthesisable, and are also unstable…

Shall I put it into the "familiar fours" section? Freywa wrote:Probably not. It's not four ponds, it's two bi-ponds. I don't see that as a disqualifying factor, since the fleet and bakery are respective pairs of bi-ships and bi-loaves. A better reason to leave this out is that it's not really familiar; traffic lights, honeyfarms, blockades, fleets, and bakeries come up all the time, all arise multiple times from collisions of 2-3 gliders, and they have been commonly observed for almost half a century. Land of lakes is not nearly as common; besides, it's already mentioned on the Wiki page. The two-glider collision that makes 4 skewed blocks would likely occur much more frequently. EDIT The two R-pentominos rapidly form two fleet predecessors; colliding pairs of R-pentominos or pair of fleets both result in 6-glider syntheses, which is slightly cheaper than making the bi-ponds individually (as the 3-glider synthesis could only be used for one of them). EDIT 2: Two other not-quite-so-familiar fours are the small fleet and small honeyfarm, also from six gliders: Code: Select all x = 76, y = 21, rule = B3/S23 9bo$10boo35bobo$9boo37boo$48bo$$70bo13bo15boo22bo15bobo13bobo13bobo 9bo11bobo13bobo13boo15boo10boo9boo15boobo8bo7bo6boo4boo7boo8bo14boo 5booboo7boo6boo6bobo3bobo15boo13bobbo3bobbobo8bobo5bobo6boo4boo15bob o5boo6boo5boo29boo26boo11bo29bobo27bo9bobo30boo37bobo70bo$$52bo$10boo39boo$9boo40bobo$11bo!

I wonder if it means this? Code: Select all x = 154, y = 33, rule = B3/S23...  No, the last time that Familiar Fours entry came up, I tracked the "4 eaters" mention back to Dean Hickerson's experiments with Eric Angelini's Life integer patterns: Code: Select all x = 15, y = 5, rule = B3/S23 obob3ob3ob3o$obo3bobobobobo$obob3obobobobo$obo3bobobobobo$obob3ob3ob3o! #C [[ AUTOFIT ]] The LifeWiki article describes those four eaters as belonging to the "less familiar fours". At this point, it really is several decades too late to change the membership list for the original Familiar Fours. If a four-of-the-same-object constellation wasn't well known by 1980 or so, it just plain isn't familiar enough to be one of the Familiar Fours. mow Posts: 1 Joined: May 14th, 2018, 5:41 pm ### Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries i merge three beehives together in this configuration. it took 2498 generations to stabilize. i try to search it but i couldnt find anything about it.

That pattern has probably been discovered before, but small patterns that last that long are generally considered to be uninteresting. Also, please use [c‏‏ode][/code] tags instead of [vie‏wer][/viewer] tags; they take up less space. "Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.

For some reason I haven't been able to track down a single-step tub to hook component anywhere — so here's a 3G one:

x = 9, y = 11, rule = B3/S23

$6b2o!  I think it actually is the smallest known; I don't see any other way of making a smaller one. (Achim's p16 doesn't work in this case AFAIK) The oscillator page on the wiki was for the most part written in 2009, so it's possible that just no one has gotten around to listing some of the newer LCD oscillators since then. mniemiec Posts: 1055 Joined: June 1st, 2013, 12:00 am ### Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries GUYTU6J wrote:This Rich's p16 on tumbler probably isn't the smallest p112, otherwise it would be noted. ... Nice! Here is a 24-glider synthesis of 50p112. Nothing new here; traditional 14-glider Rich's P16 plus 10-glider edge-shot tumbler. Making the tumbler first might be cheaper, but doesn't work, unless someone finds a way to edge-shoot Rich's P16 at a reasonable cost.
