Can a catalyst replace the yellow block?

Code: Select all

x = 37, y = 39, rule = LifeHistory

This would be an NE0, and I can't seem to find any H-to-Gs with an NE0 output, so I guess this would be new.

If something does show up it will seems a little strange, though. This is also the glider that very nearly escapes from an Fx158, but then has to be suppressed to avoid a pi explosion:

Code: Select all

x = 30, y = 30, rule = B3/S23

#C [[ ZOOM 12 X 0 Y 0 GPS 20 STOP 150 PAUSE 2 T 126 PAUSE 3 THUMBNAIL THUMBSIZE 2 AUTOSTART ]]
So the glider has been well-known since David Buckingham discovered it almost a quarter century ago. Is it really true that in all that time, nobody has figured out how to help that poor glider escape?

mmm, I found something I had in some other file, so I guess it was already known:

Definitely an improvement, thanks! The problem was that I somehow managed to mis-classify it, working by hand from the existing H-to-G list. The script now happily classifies it as the known NE2T56:

So my apologies for the confusion, and luckily something good came out of it anyway!

Annual Appeal
Here I might as well renew my annual appeal for someone to take over and update the H-to-G collection properly. Ideally the H-to-G stamp collection should be buildable from a script, starting with the individual annotated files in the Elementary Conduits Collection, so that repeat times and such are available.

But a good collection could also contain composite H-to-Gs, maybe even including the smallest known way to get to each lane in each direction. A complete collection of H-to-Gs for some range would make it a lot easier to write a simple script to make circuit connections. There's also some potential for making a smaller universal synchronization toolkit, for a one-step script that takes a glider synthesis as input and automatically builds a complete more-or-less-optimized gun pattern.

Dialing down the ambition a little, just cross-checking with Elementary Conduits and adding everything that has been found since 2016 to the stamp collection at the top of this thread, would be a great start -- would make it much easier to look up timing/lane combinations. Some way of marking the H-to-2Gs would also be nice, maybe just by adding the classification label from the glider pair adjustment toolkit.

I'll do the work myself eventually, but right now there's a painfully large pile of things that are higher on my to-do list -- another Lexicon update for Golly, and a much bigger update for the Online Archives, and so on.

Cross-posting an H-to-G from Unsure Discoveries, an adaptation of Extrementhusiast's Herschel conduit by Jormungant, into a very nice medium-clearance edgeshooting SW47T214:

The insertion mechanism is the same as the old RNE-19T84, but without the period-doubling or extra-cross-lane-glider side effects. Also the same as the more recent NE-27T176, but that one wasn't an edge-shooter.
