Perhaps you could be more specific about what you want in such a search program, considering that you've previously used simeks' methuselah search program.
The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 226,000 spaceships. There is also a GitHub mirror of the collection. Tabulated pages up to period 160 (out of date) are available on the LifeWiki.

Secondly, (s)he said a optimized one will be released "soon".

Lastly, I tried using the "resume" option (continue from N*1000000th seed), but it never works. This is very disturbing since several times I clumsily close the command line and I have to restart again from 0.
[I'm deleting testitemqlstudop's actual posts, as a quick way to get the HTML-breaking sig line out of this thread temporarily. Will probably do the same to any future posts until the sig line is fixed.]

There's no way for the admins to edit users' sig lines? That would help with sig line-spammers, too.

Sig lines, like passwords, are off-limits at least to me (as far as I know). Nathaniel might be able to get at the actual database where they're stored, if he really wanted to.

But deleting posts certainly does take care of the sig lines! So I tend to think this particular problem is just a temporary one...
