Seeds of Destruction Game

Postby Entity Valkyrie » October 12th, 2018, 3:19 am

This is a thread for still life destruction.

I will start with the phrase I say all the time when I go to the doctor, "No syringes"!
(4G destruction)
x = 45, y = 77, rule = B3/S23

Let's get a link to the latest Seeds of Destruction Game file early in this thread, so people don't have to go hunting for it.

There seem to be lots of ways to get rid of a syringe with four gliders:

x = 174, y = 96, rule = LifeHistory
172.A$171.A$171.3A22$A.A$.2A$.A9$33.A.A$34.2A$34.A14$118.A$118.A.A$
118.2A19$84.2A11.A$84.2A10.A.A$96.A.A2.2A3.A$95.2A.2A2.A2.A.A$99.A.A
3.A.A$95.2A.A2.4A.A$95.2A.A.A3.A$99.A.A3.A$100.A.A3.A$101.A3.2A4$92.
2A$92.2A$77.2A$76.A2.A$75.A.2A$75.A$74.2A$89.2A$89.A$90.3A$92.A!

So I bet someone can find a way to do it with three gliders. Two could be possible, but it might take an exhaustive search with a script to find it.

Yes, there are many ways to do it with 3G, here one example:
x = 56, y = 42, rule = B3/S23
55bo$53b2o$54b2o15$35bo$10b2o11bo10bo$10b2o10bobo9b3o$22bobo2b2o3bo$

o16bobo3bo$8b2o17bo3b2o$8bo3$18b2o$18b2o$3b2o$2bo2bo$bob2o$bo$2o$15b2o
$15bo$16b3o$18bo!
based on this nice destruction
x = 19, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
17bo$5bo10bo$4bobo9b3o$4bobo2b2o3bo$3b2ob2o2bo2bobo$7bobo3bobo$3b2obo
2b4obo$3b2obobo3bo$7bobo3bo$8bobo3bo$9bo3b2o4$2o$2o!

Maybe there is a 2G option, but definitively no 1G.

Edit1:
A 2G destruction seems to be in range of possible outcomes, here five 2G collisions which yield a single blinker:
x = 197, y = 159, rule = B3/S23

I've decided going insane and trying to destroy random.rle is bad for your health so I chose bi-loaf
x = 13, y = 18, rule = B3/S23

That induction coil is extremely rare and doesn't have a name. I'd go for 'ohm' or 'omega' or something related to that.
Please stop using my full name. Refer to me as dani.

It actually is called "Omega" in Mark Niemiec's database; see, for example, "block on up large omega w/ curly tail" from this list.
