Width-17 odd-symmetric 2c/7 search finished without results. Best partial: <snip partial 2c/7 That looks very promising - you will almost certainly find a ship with a width 19 search (w10) if you can run it (how long did the w9 search take?).

Re: Rules with small adjustable spaceships

So assuming you meant 'make that orthogonal adjustable speed ship consisting of the glider + dot bounce reaction go much faster", the answer is in my previous reply: c/8 is as fast as it can be made to go. To go faster requires different reactions.

Re: Research on orthogonal lightspeed signals traveling through striped media

I hope to see some success with this investigation, though it seems to be tricky to get many things to work because it's so easy for zebra stripes to explode. I suspect though that, as dvgrn said, some tools other than brute force enumeration will be required. Java Life Search (JLS), Win Life Search...

How did you find them?
I used my usual technique for finding catalyst type reactions with JLS to find an appropriate type of spark, and then used a symmetric JLS oscillator search to find the individual oscillators.

In terms of engineering, the c/8d spaceship's formation rate is such that the rule may or may not allow engineering.

If yes that means you can run "rustc --version" without error and "which cargo" should return the path to the cargo binary. 2) Which shell are you using? If bash and you inst...
