Actually it's a 20-bit still life.

Each of the blocks can be replaced by a glider, giving a 10-glider synthesis:

Courtesy Catagolue: 10-glider synthesis for 14.352, previously from 15 gliders - for almost two decades, the last remaining still-life up to 14 bits that could not be synthesized for <= 1 glider/bit. This yields trivial 12-glider syntheses for the related boat versions 15.615 and 15.618, beehive version 16.1314, barge versions 16.1312 and 16.1320, and loaf versions 17.2052 and 17.2063:

I specifically listed the 2 15-bit ones, because I already had syntheses for those, and I'm specifically tracking all the 15-bit ones. I only included the larger ones because those were trivial to make with 2 extra gliders. I know a 2-glider tub-to-bun converter, but the 2-glider tub-to-mango and 3-glider tub-to-bookend converters are new to me. Thanks!

### Re: Syntheses of Unusual Still Lifes

A 16-bit still-life (moose antlers with one eater head replaced by a tub) showed up in a random soup that I was running, formed by adding a blinker to a common predecessor of moose antlers. Using 4 gliders to build moose antlers gives this 6-glider synthesis:
`x = 24, y = 16, rule = B3/S239bo\$10b2o\$9b2o\$20bo\$20bobo\$4bo15b2o\$2bobo\$3b2o3\$3o\$2bo\$bo6b3o\$10bo10b3o\$9bo11bo\$22bo!`

I don't see this object in Mark Niemiec's list of still-lifes buildable from 6 gliders (or fewer), so maybe this is an improvement.

But the same mechanism occurs in some random soups in the Catagolue, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's been found before.

This is 16.1452, and it has no explicit synthesis yet in my own internal database (it implicitly takes 7 - 4 for antlers + 3 for eater head-to-tub), although I haven't yet had a chance to examine all of Bob Shemyakin's small syntheses to see if any of those include this object. He might be able to answer that.

### Re: Syntheses of Unusual Still Lifes

Mark Niemiec's database gives a 14-glider synthesis of the 16-bit still life "teardrop tie loaf". Here's one with 12 gliders:
`x = 105, y = 80, rule = B3/S23104bo\$102b2o\$103b2o15\$bo\$2bo\$3o10\$65bobo\$65b2o\$66bo8\$43bobo\$35bo8b2o\$36bo7bo\$34b3o3\$64b2o\$63b2o\$65bo5\$59b2o\$58b2o\$60bo2\$33b2o\$32bobo\$34bo\$40bo\$40b2o\$39bobo2\$54bo\$53b2o\$53bobo4\$57b3o\$57bo\$58bo6\$26b2o\$25bobo\$27bo!`

This showed up in a 5-glider collision, forming in generation 1958, but with so much extra junk that cleaning it up with fewer than 7 more gliders seems difficult:
`x = 37, y = 32, rule = B3/S2314bo\$15b2o\$14b2o2\$o\$b2o\$2o6\$18bobo\$19b2o\$19bo3\$19bo\$18b2o\$18bobo10\$35bo\$34b2o\$34bobo!`

Nice improvement! (I should have noticed that.)

Meanwhile, I found a 7-glider synthesis, based on one of the 1144 soups in the Catagolue that produces this object:

I only looked at the first 20 or so of the soups. There could be something even better among the others.

(Edited to add link to the other soups. And now there are 1145 of them.)

Excellent!

Thanks. From now on I'll compare any of my 'improved' syntheses to yours in that thread. Are there any other synthesis collections that I should know about?

By the way, I see that many of the RLE files in 5gliders.rar have bad headers, like "x = -78, y = -60, rule = S S23/B3" in p2o8g5-bipole.lif. Golly ignores the negative x and y values, but interprets the rule as one in which every cell dies, so I've edited my copies to correct that. I've seen this rule error before; do you know what causes it?

The pattern must have been saved in Life32. Version 2.16 was the only one that did that, if I recall correctly. EDIT: I recognize both the negative dimensions and the extra S in "S S23/B3". Very strange bug -- it only happened sometimes. But Golly came along, and then a new patched version of Life32 never surfaced.

Or WinLife32. I use v2.2.0 (preferred for its drag and drop sensibility). I haven't noticed the negative dimensions, but always have to open the RLE in a word processor to swap the S23/B3 to B3/S23 before posting up the patterns.
Golly doesn't seem to mind the reversal though.

Very nice! My synthesis would now actually take 6, since it was based on 12.28 (block on down long bookend) + 2
gliders for eater-head-to-down-boat, but Bob Shemyakin had recently (within the past couple of years) reduced 12.28 to 4 gliders. Unfortunately, that one synthesis forms the basis for literally hundreds of others, so I haven't yet had the time to update everything it affects yet.

Replacing 2 of the gliders that form a blinker by 2 that form a blinker and a loaf gets rid of the escaping glider, so this uses 16 gliders:

I specifically listed the 2 15-bit ones, because I already had syntheses for those, and I'm specifically tracking all the 15-bit ones. I only included the larger ones because those were trivial to make with 2 extra gliders. I know a 2-glider tub-to-bun converter, but the 2-glider tub-to-mango and 3-glider tub-to-bookend converters are new to me. Thanks!
