People must have found this before.


Wow. I don't recognise this, and it looks like it's conceivably following some one-dimensional cellular automaton. If so, could variants of this oscillator be used to prove omniperiodicity?
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

I prefer Dani now, but Danny is fine seeing as it's my username and I've already made 4 too many accounts.

I actually would've responded pretty much right away but then I had to go somewhere so here's my belated two cent(urie)s:
x = 17, y = 12, rule = B3/S23
11b2obo$4bobo3bo2b2o$4b2obo3bo3b2o$2b2o3b4ob2o2bo$bo3b2o5bob2o$ob2o4b

EDIT: Smaller population and shortest side, but longer:
x = 19, y = 11, rule = B3/S23
6b2ob2o$4bo2bobobo$4b3o4bo$2b2o3b4ob2o$bo3b2o5bobo$ob2o4b2o2bobo$bo3b

Is this perhaps the first gun in CGOL to directly produce a spaceship other than the glider?

Nah. All 2-Tanner constellations are evaluated, but for 3-Tanner constellations I've just been looking for LWSS and HWSS guns. My search wouldn't catch a MWSS that is fundamentally different than the one already known. And the HWSS gun search is still going (and perhaps unrealistic given how long it took to even find the LWSS gun).

I assume your goal was to find the smallest possible stabilisation for that p14 long barge-hassling reaction?

More like any stabilization at all for that reaction, which I had actually found quite a while ago. (Said reaction can actually be of any even period > 13; it serves as a period doubler for whatever sparkers are driving it.)

The search for the sparker was actually quite annoying, as probably over a dozen times during the search, I had found a partial stabilization that required changing two or three cells to drive the rest of the oscillator, only to not find anything to drive those two or three cells. This was despite the fact that the search covered both P7 (the minimum allowable period for the reaction, and, as if to troll me, both a prime period and the minimum period not to feature a sparker with a small-enough footprint) and P8 (in the hopes of reducing it to P4, which would have been stabilized much more easily), and I even had a bit of P9 in there (in the hopes of reducing it to P3). At one point, I was even thinking about doing a drifter search, as demonstrated somewhat by the following P8 partial:
x = 12, y = 17, rule = B3/S23

Speaking of smaller stabilizations, this chops off half of this new sparker:

This is really difficult to stabilize:
x = 9, y = 12, rule = B3/S23

EDIT: This may be of some use:

Life is hard. Deal with it.
This is my new favorite spaceship:
x = 8, y = 4, rule = B3-ek/S023

Thanks. That component is really handy, isn't it?

Well, found some intriguing (but pointless) interaction:

x = 16, y = 19, rule = LifeHistory

This also works with a MWSS. If you just want to rephase the candelabras, a blinker works just as well, and it only takes two gliders.
x = 169, y = 14, rule = B3/S23
