...the requirement that the bit should be toggleable, not just settable, tends to make the circuitry quite a bit bigger.

Here's another idea. It's not necessarily an improvement as it stands -- but at least it works properly, unlike my previous two contributions, and maybe somebody can improve on it.

Maybe something like an L156 -- a conduit with an extra mid-conduit glider output -- could improve the geometry here?

Nice concept! This one might not be smaller, but it could be possibly more efficient than the LWSS stopper because one wouldn't need a G-to-LWSS converter for the read. For now, I'll just tighten the previous solution further:

Ooh, nice! The alternative Snark catalyst won't allow this circuitry to be slow-salvo constructed, unfortunately, whereas I imagine BlinkerSpawn's version might just about be constructible. (My well-spaced version is certainly constructible in every orientation.)
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

Seems to tighten things up a little bit, anyway. The closer the first glider output is to the H-to-2G, the less space is needed to delay the glider until one of the semi-Snark outputs can stop it. There are a few other Herschel conduits with mid-conduit outputs that might be worth looking at.

-- Still a long way from being a reasonable size, I'm afraid, especially once you grab a signal from OUT2 and route it back into TOGGLE, to allow for a non-destructive read of the boat-bit. There is actually a variant of the right-hand H-to-2G READ circuit that's completely Spartan, but that's pretty much irrelevant at this point.

Seems like there must be something cheaper that's already known. If there isn't, it will be necessary to invent it...!

Can someone reduce this synthesis for cis-boat and cap?
x = 14, y = 18, rule = B3/S23

The autogenerated synthesis link on my page (Cis-boat and cap) was broken, but it said that this still life can be synthesized with only 6 gliders.

For the LifeViewer Anniversary Holiday Challenge, I was thinking of making a waypoint script animation that would follow a signal through a figure-eight. It would start out as a glider, then meet other gliders that would turn it into a loafer (let's say), then back to a glider, then to an X66, then a glider again, then a dart, and so on.

It wouldn't be good to take up a lot of space with permanent multi-signal-synchronizing stuff like a G-to-loafer converter. That would shift the focus too much off of the single signal being followed.

But I think it might be reasonable to include smallish stable or oscillating spaceship-to-glider converters. Could make an arbitrary rule that 135-degree turns, even temporary ones, aren't allowed. So no loafer to 135-degree glider followed by a Snark, but maybe it's okay to allow a brief 90-degree turn and a little time as a Herschel:

x = 134, y = 96, rule = LifeHistory

-- Or maybe not. Would it be better to always have the 45-degree reflections produced by gliders? Then the loafer would look more like

x = 229, y = 176, rule = B3/S23

(except preferably without cheating with a kickback.)

It might be best if the conversion gliders came from the outside of the turn, as in the above example. Or maybe it would be more entertaining if the converting ships were something more interesting than gliders. What are the biggest weirdest ship collisions that produce clean glider outputs?

x = 94, y = 65, rule = LifeHistory

The following glider outputs are in the wrong direction, at least for the input glider I chose above -- but this is definitely something I didn't know about loafers:

x = 45, y = 37, rule = B3/S23

Lots of orthogonal spaceships to choose from. Anyone care to contribute some good 45-degree deflection reactions, to turn any of the following back into a single glider?

LWSS (3 gliders):
MWSS (3)
HWSS (3)
(sidecar? Big A? Coe ship?)
loafer (8)
x66 (13)
copperhead (14)
dart (25)
fireship (20)
25P3H1V0.1 (47)
25P3H1V0.2 (?) (only have partial synthesis so far)
puffership (60)
60P5H2V0 (61)
30P5H2V0 (65)
Pushalong 1 (77)
weekender (79)
30P4H2V0.4 (85)

If necessary, we could use gliders or whatever to build small constellations for the spaceship to collide with, too.
