Can anyone make a converter out of this?:

Code: Select all

x = 12, y = 17, rule = B3/S23

EDIT3:

Here's a synthesis of 16.1846 that is probably cheaper than whatever the above possible converter might give.

16.1846 in 11 gliders:

Code: Select all

```
x = 24, y = 24, rule = B3/S23

It uses this new converter:
