A failed synthesis that actually synthesizes something completely different than intended:
x = 16, y = 19, rule = B3/S23

R + Beehive + blinker = HWSS + B + TL. I'm sure one could make a HWSS gun out of it with Herschel circuits (I put a subconduit and a snark above the reaction to output a Herschel and delete the TL), but I don't know how to work with Herschels, so this is just a curiosity. Unfortunately, the reaction cannot be combined with a block to make a wick that releases HWSSs.

x = 41, y = 37, rule = B3/S23

EDIT: There's this wick, though. Any simple one-time glider reflectors out there, besides boats? I want to kick those gliders back at the debris to clean up the reaction, but boat reflectors don't work.

I found this unusual (perhaps already known) flip-flop stabilizer, but it doesn't seem to be able to be stabiliezd with anything... It is due to the fact that while others flip-flops don't change "polarity", this one does.

People have been rediscovering that one a lot lately. Were you using the Seeds of Destruction Game, by any chance? Paul Chapman ran into that reaction while testing out an early SODGame release last year, and I think I've seen it somewhere else more recently.

Speaking of *WSSes, here's an incredibly weird HWSS edge-shooter from oblique's slow-salvo spaceship seed search software:

12$3C!

There are lots more where that came from -- though maybe not too many that look quite that improbable!

Nope. Chasing a wild hair looking for that elusive (23,5)c79 helix seed.
More than a few xWSS+object to Herschel have surfaced, but none that can be cleanly resolved to said object and repeated @ p79.
Thought I'd try a more complex seed. I seem to recall a couple of herschel+xWSS combos resolving to eater during my experiments. Killing time on a Sunday morning.

This reduces to a 2-glider-blinker collision that leaves a HWSS and a debris block (or blinker+3 gliders to HWSS). Except for the phasing of the activation glider (that is important) and the phasing of the debris removal glider (that isn't), this is almost identical to a similar HWSS that I have in my collection from Jan. 18, that I think I distilled from another post on this forum (or a similar one). Here are the new and old ones in the one instance I could find where this mechanism improves an existing incremental two-spaceship flotilla synthesis:

The period-12 oscillator core (top left) is well-known. It can be hassled by many things whose periods divide 12 (e.g. caterers and jams). I'm not sure if this unix-supported variant has been used before, but it works the same way as the others.

Although this specific set of pieces may be new, the mangled 3/4-traffic-light turning into a bi-hat (bottom right) has been known for a long time.

Yeah, there are versions in the DRH Oscillators file which use caterers, but I hadn't seen any that use unixes. What about this? Has this been done before?

Two recent pulsar discoveries:
1. R + loaf = pulsar + B

x = 12, y = 6, rule = B3/S23

2. Pi + 2 MWSSes = sort of double pulsar at gen 182

x = 35, y = 14, rule = B3/S23

Here's an odd result from the Half-Baked Knightship project: this morning was looking for ways to suppress the output from a chain of half-bakery pairs -- i.e., the gliders coming from the northeast (except the first one has been delayed with one extra half-bakery reaction).

The spacing happened to work out to produce an unlikely-looking clean Herschel seed. I couldn't use it, but didn't want it to go to waste:

x = 25, y = 39, rule = LifeHistory

Interesting:
x = 27, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
