Great Job!

Which still-lifes are still left?

I've got stuck on 15.310.

I couldn't synthesise it, or some smaller still-lifes that can be used to make it (in a 16 glider sythesis) in few enough gliders.

As I had mentioned earlier, I am attempting to create a complete database, and finally finished all the bookkeeping for the 14-bit still-lifes a few years ago, but only had about half the 15-bit ones synthesized. Bob Shemyakin synthesized all the rest, plus he found many other, cheaper syntheses of some of the smaller ones. I am in the process of assimilating all his data, but there are over 2000 syntheses I need to examine in order to do so, so it will take a while before my list is up to date. Thus, my own list is missing about half of the 15-bit ones, including many of the expensive ones. (I also have the 700 or so difficult 18-bit still-lifes to assimilate, and those are in a more difficult format).

There is an impossible glider crossing in that pattern but it can be fixed by making the pond sufficiently early.

Ah, I see.

Well according to BobShemyakin's database, 15.297 takes 15 gliders like this:

`x = 79, y = 20, rule = B3/S2317bobo40bo\$17b2o41bobo\$6bo11bo41b2o\$7bo\$5b3o51bo\$57bobo3bo\$58b2o2bo\$62b3o2\$58bobo3bo\$11bo17b2o18b2o7b2o3b2o4b2o\$9bobo18bo19bo8bo3bobo4bo6bo\$10b2o8bo9bob2o16bob2o16bob2o2bobo\$20bobo8b2obobo14b2obobo14b2obo2bo\$20b2o13b2o18b2o18b2o\$17b2o\$5b2o4b2o3b2o44b2o\$3o3b2o2bobo5bo39bo2b2o\$2bo2bo6bo45b2o3bo\$bo55bobo!`

A different order yields a better synthesis from 11 gliders:

`x = 50, y = 50, rule = B3/S2347bobo\$47b2o\$6bo41bo\$7bo\$5b3o14\$30bobo\$30b2o\$31bo3\$33bo\$31bobo\$32b2o2\$33b3o\$33bo\$34bo9\$16b2o\$17b2o2b2o\$16bo3bobo\$22bo24b2o\$36b3o8bobo\$36bo10bo\$37bo2\$5b3o\$3o4bo\$2bo3bo\$bo!`

I believe that now all 15-bit still-lifes from 15.1 to 15.300 have syntheses in less than 15 gliders.

This is actually 15.287. In my collection, I try, for multi-part objects, I try, whenever possible, to provide the smallest synthesis, as well as all syntheses beginning with any of the parts. This facilitates future, larger incremental syntheses in which those parts may be already attached to something else. Such techniques would yield both your synthesis and his, with yours being the cheaper path (and, at least at present, there is no "natural" atomic synthesis that is better.)

I believe that now all 15-bit still-lifes from 15.1 to 15.300 have syntheses in less than 15 gliders.[/quote]
By examining Bob Shemyakin's most recent still15.rar archive, I found the following additional still-lifes that aren't on my lists:
Equals: 15.365 15.402 15.410 15.431 15.446 15.487 15.506 15.516 15.751 15.786
15.839 15.855 15.890 15.919 15.931 15.934 15.939 15.942 15.949 15.1024
15.1033 15.1034 15.1036 15.1088 15.1103 15.1207
Greater: 15.182 15.252 15.304 15.416 15.457 15.507 15.508 15.562 15.578 15.620
15.698 15.723 15.791 15.797 15.840 15.848 15.849 15.889 15.923 15.947
15.960 15.983 15.1012 15.1035 15.1065
(15.182 and 15.252 remain unoptimized, from 22 and 16 gliders respectively (EDIT: as Bob just pointed out), and 15.304 from 16 for the next batch.)

A weird pulsar variant in D4_+1:

I think a synthesis is possible based on this for the [cis x2]-two-quadrant and double-mirrored four-quadrant versions.

From here, for 15.297:

Oh sorry, I must have missed those.

Nice! Here is 15.252 and 15.304 both in 12 gliders.

`x = 111, y = 121, rule = B3/S23106bo\$105bo\$105b3o40\$73bo\$73bobo\$44bo28b2o\$45b2o\$44b2o11\$56bo\$54bobo\$55b2o2\$57bo\$57bobo\$57b2o14\$55b3o2b2o\$57bo2bobo\$56bo3bo16\$13b2o\$14b2o\$13bo7\$3b3o\$5bo\$4bo3\$b2o\$obo\$2bo5\$3o\$2bo\$bo106b2o\$108bobo\$108bo!`

Now all 15-bit still-lifes from 15.1 to 15.300 have syntheses in less than 15 gliders!
