script for puffer producing given output

Postby HartmutHolzwart » June 4th, 2012, 4:28 pm

I want to produce a c/2 puffer producing the following output

x = 314, y = 86, rule = B3/S23
15$35b2o82b2o82b2o82b2o$35b2o82b2o82b2o82b2o3$109b2o82b2o82b2o$109b2o
82b2o82b2o3$99b2o82b2o82b2o$99b2o82b2o82b2o3$89b2o82b2o82b2o$89b2o82b
2o82b2o3$79b2o82b2o82b2o$79b2o82b2o82b2o3$69b2o82b2o82b2o$69b2o82b2o
82b2o$60bo83bo83bo$60bo83bo83bo$60bo83bo83bo2$50bo83bo83bo$50bo83bo83b
o$50bo83bo83bo2$40bo83bo83bo$40bo83bo83bo$40bo83bo83bo2$30bo83bo83bo$
30bo83bo83bo$30bo83bo83bo!


It is fairly easy to find a forward and backward rake of an appropriate period in Jasons rake collection. Also there are standard two glider collisions that produce blinkers resp. blocks.

But there are a lot of constraints that the gliders and rake engines do not interact with each other.

Is it possible to build a script that finds a solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Hartmut

Does the puffer move left, or right?

I don't know of any scripts that would help, but it looks straightforward to construct. I'd use rakes plus these reactions, if possible:

.....*..................*
*...*...............*..*.

Please clarify this abbreviation:
... blinkers resp. blocks.

The p168 rakes are a wide platform, but not insurmountable.
As Jason said, it appears fairly straightforward.
There are eight LWSS/glider collisions that are possible for side 'injection' assembly of block or blinker.
Awaiting more data.

I haven't seen anyone else asking a question like this, so there doesn't seem to be much call for such a program or script. If this is an one-off then it would be easier to produce the pattern by hand. I have constructed such a puffer and include it in a reply to the original request in the patterns forum.

Could you at least give some sort of tutorial or introduction how you do it?

Using layers in Golly might be useful, I guess.

Thanks in advance,
Hartmut
