Glider + Block

Postby Rhombic » August 24th, 2017, 11:24 am

This thread is to list the best glider+block collisions in any rule.

I'll start with one that seems impossible to beat: a 2c/66 spaceship that keeps shoving a glider into a block (it can reach it from infinity)!
x = 6, y = 3, rule = B3-ek4cejqtwy5ekry6ain7c/S02-c3-cqy4qt5aej6en
2o3bo$2ob2o$4b2o!
x = 13, y = 9, rule = B3-ek4cejqwy5kry6an7c/S02-c3-cqy4qt5aj
12bo$10b2o$11b2o5$2o$2o!
SoL : FreeElectronics : DeadlyEnemies : 6a-ite : Rule X3VI

This one is even better
x = 5, y = 9, rule = B3-cey5e6c/S2-n3-c4q5ay6a
obo$b2o$bo5$3b2o$3b2o!

16c/148 diagonal (4c/37)
Another ship spawns the glider farther away:
x = 13, y = 8, rule = B3-cek4ez5ej/S2-n3-c4eq6e
2bo$obo$b2o4$11b2o$11b2o!

4c/134 diagonal (2c/67)
Slowest yet:
c/216 diagonal
x = 6, y = 10, rule = B3-ck4ckwy5ai6c78/S2-n3-c4ceqy6en7c
2bo$obo$b2o6$4b2o$4b2o!

Different direction 3c/72
x = 3, y = 8, rule = B3aijnqr4eikqy5ai6i78/S2-n3-c4eq5enr6ek
2o$2o4$b2o$2o$2bo!

A (6,19)c/233 which also has a glider crashing into a blinker and a spark
x = 3, y = 7, rule = B3-cey6kn7c8/S2-n34qt5ny6ain
2o$2o3$bo$2o$obo!

Also, a p54:
x = 3, y = 6, rule = B3-ceky4i5i/S234cq5r6an
obo$2o$bo2$b2o$b2o!
x = 11, y = 5, rule = B2ck3-ij5n78/S01e2ei3-k5ai
8b2o$2o3b2o$bo4bo3bo$2bo2b2o$o7bo!

(15,3)c/600
x = 9, y = 5, rule = B3-eky4ai5i6k/S2ae3-cei4aijr5i6ei7e
bo$2bo$3o$7b2o$7b2o!
x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3-y/S234w
2b3o$bo$o3bo$o2bo$obo!

That is impressive
