### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits

Here's a Pi-to-R, but the R is well inside the reaction envelope, so right now I think the R-to-G with a pond in it is the only thing that hooks up:

And that's really just Guam's BR146H G4 transmitter, connected in a slightly nonstandard way to a HF95Pi, so it has no more clearance than the standard pi outputs.

I had similar trouble connecting up the output to anything -- even the pi-to-Gs all seem to explode, thanks to that unusual leading spark and glider. Am I missing a rare exception? That eater on the inside corner is in a really awkward position.

Almost a dozen ticks when parts of both sides of the pre-honeyfarm can be reached by catalysts.

Here's something a little bizarre: a backwards Pi-to-Pi. Can't be flipped back onto itself to make an oscillator, though. Into the bin it goes.

A new H-to-G with a boat and a ship that suffers a lot of damage before getting restored.

Known lane but new timing, NW16T96, and it seems to be a lot smaller than any previous H-to-G with that particular mod-8 timing:

### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits

If you can clean the mess after the glider pair appear without touching the "in-front" block, you can use this glider pair as reflecting signal (good enough for most self replicating applications):

I'm fairly sure this new Pierce Reflector (doesn't that have a nice ring to it?) can be made Spartan with some more fiddling. Anyway, I'll keep you all updated if I find any more fun things in the neverending quest for a Spartan G-to-X. The search is getting quite thorny.

I hope someone will find at least another glider output, this will make it really usable. Having only reflector is cool but kinda useless, the real use comes from extra signal (glider/H/B/R) that is triggered by the input. Also the repeat time is worse than Silver's so it will be hard to convince someone to use it.

I'm not sure if it's possible to clean up enough of the junk to make it useful. Maybe modifying one or more of the Herschel outputs to send gliders back at the junk? In any case, both FNGs need to be removed.

Having only reflector is cool but kinda useless, the real use comes from extra signal (glider/H/B/R) that is triggered by the input. Also the repeat time is worse than Silver's so it will be hard to convince someone to use it.

It's already a G2/3/4 to 90-degree glider converter -- two different output lanes, since a tub-with-tail eater or chris_c's Spartan eater can suppress either one of the G3 outputs.

Also, two 90-degree input gliders can produce a glider or G3 output in quite a few different ways, so it could be used as a glider retimer / color changer / turner, with a 90-degree glider to reset or pre-set it:

We haven't had many tandem-glider receivers where the leftover object was a block. It's nice having all those adjacent lanes available for annihilation reactions. But yes, it would be really nice to find a good Herschel output along with the G3 tandem glider. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5634 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits A Spartan HL153B: x = 36, y = 42, rule = LifeHistory22.A$20.3A$19.A$19.2A$16.5B3.2A$15.4B5.A$15.5B.BA.A$12.D7B.B2A$11.2D9B$10.2D11B$11.2D11B$12.13B2.B$11.2B.11B.3B5.2A$11.14B.3B5.A$10.20B.BA.A$2A8.20B.B2A$A.A4.25B$2.A4.25B$2.2A.27B$4.28B$4.27B$4.26B$5.25B$6.24B$9.20B$13.10B.4B$12.13B$11.15B$10.16B$9.17B$10.16B$11.13B$11.5B2A2B.4B$13.3B2A2B2.4B$13.8B2.4B$12.3B3D2B4.4B$12.4BD3B5.4B$12.2B3D2B7.4B$12.7B8.4B$13.6B9.4B$13.6B10.4B$14.5B11.4B!

Unfortunately, the only conduit that can attach to it (that I know of) is Conduit 1, which requires one eater to be modified to a hook-with-tail:

You posted only the catalysts.
Why did you leave out the reactions, is this meant to be a puzzle?

No he didn't, he posted in LifeHistory rule which needs golly to show all the states. The viewer doesn't support states 3-4 from LifeHistory.

Lobbying is currently ongoing for a slight update to the viewer, so that all states in LifeHistory can be displayed in the viewer, maybe only for T=0. In the meantime, it's possible to add script commands to make the extra states visible -- might as well in this case, since the viewer can't run the pattern anyway:

One of the state-3 Herschels was drawn in upside down, so I've taken that excuse to repost both patterns with the Herschels in standard orientation. Probably the Herschel traveling up _ought_ to be the standard orientation, since then you can tell left turns from right turns more easily... but Herschels traveling right, with FNGs heading southwest, has been Hersrch-standard for the last decade, and the elementary-conduits collection follows that standard. #C [[ THUMBNAIL STOP 201 ]]x = 44, y = 48, rule = LifeHistory32.B$31.3D$31.BDB$30.2B3D$30.5B$30.6B$30.6B$30.5B$29.6B$30.6B$29.7B$25.2A2.6B$25.A3.6B$26.A2.6B$23.3A2.8B$23.A5.8B$20.3B5.9B$19.5B4.9B$18.6B4.10B$18.8B2.5B2A3B$18.8B2.5B2A4B3.2A$12.B4.9B2.11B3.A$11.3B3.23BA.A$9.6B2.21B2.2A$9.7B.20B$.AB4.22B.5B$2B2AD2.28B$3BACBD30B$4BDCDB2A28B$5ABDB2A28B$3BAB2.31B$8.28B.B2A$10.24B3.BA.A$9.27B4.A$8.25B.2A4.2A$7.9B.15B2.A$6.4B.20B4.3A$5.4B2.4B.12B9.A$4.4B8.14B$3.4B9.15B$3.3B11.13B$3.2B13.10B$3.B17.5B$22.6B$26.2A$26.A$27.3A$29.A!

### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits

A small note on HL153B--use a hook-with-tail for a smaller population in non-self-constructing circuits, and a hat for self-constructors. The latter is more common by a factor of *checks Catagolue* 38, and we already have an excuse to build hats.
