That test is now done for all the fixed guns, so I think that with this patch the collection will now be pretty well standardized.
After a gap of a third of a year, it took me a little while figure out which periods in the GitHub repository had the discrepancies in LifeHistory cells (or in some cases, I think, no output glider on the edge of the bounding box).

The script just ignores LifeHistory cells anyway, regenerates them for the LHguns folder, and doesn't report anything except a successful run. But eventually I found the 36 guns in question, in the glider-gun-builderv2.7.zip glider_guns-master/fixed subfolder.

@chris_c, should I do a pull request for the repository to patch the README and correct the 36 fixed guns, or is there a better method?

That's not a reduction, though; reduction refers to the minimum "oscillating" population of a gun (where you sort of ignore the output ships) or the minimum "oscillating" bounding box.

One phase is the second lifeviewer that I posted.

Where is the sir robin??

EDIT: And by the way, the second lifeviewer that i showed is the gun, not the preddecesor. His simkin gun pseudo 35 cells.

In this thread we don't care what the minimum population is. We only care about the minimum bounding box area for a single-barrel gun.

That's the entire purpose of this topic. If you're not interested in that, then you probably shouldn't post in this thread.

EDIT 3: Small reduction for p940, from 3840 to 3692. Note that the p5 is replaced with a smaller p4 because the timing works out, which I'm sure will be exploitable-but-annoying for gun building.

Hm, that ain't optimal. Here's 87*71 = 6177, probably further reducible if someone can supply a less silly-shaped p5:

... And congratulations, O shadowy tormentor of obsessive gun optimizers! I like my early Christmas present -- or Halloween present? Same thing, I suppose -- Oct(al) 31 = Dec(imal) 25.

Does this mean that a stable quinti-Snark with this mechanism doesn't look too likely?

It's unlikely that this will reduce many guns, as this can already be done with a semi-snark and tremi-snark in succession. But it does look possible to create a septi-snark by replacing the lower eater with a catalyst or p7 oscillator so that it leaves some debris, similar to the quadri-Snark

Unrelated, while any interested parties apply the quinti-snark, here's one row removed from the p15 gun by replacing the unix with a cozy-fitting pentadecathlon:

The domino spark supplier on the right-hand side is still unsatisfyingly large, but I have yet to find a better option. Anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: One-row reduction to p21 by moving the NW corner inward to suppress a glider with a syringe beehive, followed by the p3 eater trick on the right.

Re: Execution of Old Guns by Variable-Speed Firing Squad

Post by Scorbie » November 3rd, 2018, 1:50 am

The quinti-snark's p5 reduced a little (Seemingly optimal using the same domino spark column)

Code: Select all

x = 39, y = 44, rule = B3/S23

Other improvements that could be made are uses of the new short p46 stabilization on any p46 tech gun, and the replacement of some fountain-based p4 bumpers in the Hall of Pain period range with ones that don't stick out so much.

Nice work. I added those improvements and made some improvements based on your other suggestions. I am not confident that the areas are optimal however. The guns with new areas are:

I have many updates that improve guns below p78 but they are all on a machine I will not have access to for about three weeks. Apart from using the new flavours of bumper I also remember making improvements to the p14 and p21 using the new p14 reflector. I probably won't bother to update anything less than p78 until I get back to that machine. (Oh... the p33 should go in sooner seeing as it is so nice)

EDIT: fixed typo p22->p21.

Thanks for the lists of updates. This should make it relatively easy to update the gun-builder script to match current reality again.

I'll repeat my minor request to update the README for the p1024 gun so the script doesn't complain about it:

Code: Select all

1024 (3430, 'fixed')
Looks like the quinti-Snark has had almost no effect so far on the three dozen guns where the LifeHistory is incorrect. I only see where one of them changed, the p940, and that one can actually be reduced further (see below). Here's the corrected collection, including the improved p940 and p1024:
36-corrected-fixed-guns.zip
36 guns where LifeHistory pattern is not correct on GitHub

@Kazyan, offhand I can only get a 1362-cell improvement in the p940 gun, not the 2254-cell improvement implied by your list:

But I'm seeing a pattern here -- no pun intended. A 2254-cell improvement would mean a 61*26 period-940 gun, and similarly the 331-cell improvement for the p930 gun means you managed to fit it into 61x55. Those are the sizes of the period-940/5 and period 930/5 guns with no quintuplification at all.

That pretty much proves my case: you're clearly holding out on us! You must be sandbagging a quinti-Snark that takes up no space, and you're just waiting to spring it on us until this current round of optimization is done.

"Just ignore four out of five of those gliders, and hey presto it's a p940!"

I have added Kazyan's improvement to the p15, dvgrn's 36 corrected guns, the new p940 and Sokwe's fixed gun reductions from June (better late than never). I know that 2 further columns can be taken off the p14 gun by replacing the p6 bumper in the stream that hits the loaf with the new p14 reflector. Other possibilities are using that big p4 eater (where was that?) to save a row on p56, p58, p62, p68, p70 and p76.

Re: Execution of Old Guns by Variable-Speed Firing Squad

Post by dvgrn » November 5th, 2018, 9:15 am

So far things are looking pretty good. A run of the builder script against the latest README doesn't report any problems, so it appears that all the bounding boxes and so on are matching up.

Script version 2.8 will be coming along when I've taken care of six more missing guns. The periodic quinti-Snark turns out to present a problem that didn't exist anywhere else in the gun collection (thank you again, O Kazyan from the Shadows!) Basically, when a loop has to be filled with different numbers of signals for two or more different guns, it becomes impossible to set the p4 or p5 to a phase that will work for populating both guns: on one of them, the oscillator will be out of synch when the key honeyfarm explosion comes along.

To fix this in the most general way, I'll have to

1) find the period P of the template;
2) try the test for the correct glider output P times instead of just once.
(This is the test that fails with an "Output is not showing up after any reasonable number of subperiod cycles." error.)

V2.8 of the script isn't that smart yet; instead there's a new class of special-case guns, and the correct oscillator phase has to be provided manually for each gun. Embarrassing, I know, but I only want to try the general solution after I have something to fall back on.

I'll wait a few weeks for the improvements below period 78 that chris_c mentioned. Maybe that will be enough time to get around to handling these troublesome quinti-Snarks a little more cleanly, in a v2.9 builder script.

EDIT: The only LifeHistory RLE patch in the current archive is for the new p00940.rle, and it's just for a single missing state-2 cell to the right of the glider:

Code: Select all

The presence of that cell in LifeHistory "standard format" on the glider's output lane makes it easier to auto-generate standard LifeHistory versions of all the guns. It's quicker to just run the gun and then check for matches inside the bounding box, than to monitor the glider output location and delete the output gliders before they can turn on that extra cell on the output lane.

We still need to add improvements based on this new twin bees stabilization. For example, here is the reduced p23 gun:
