Re: Small Spaceship Syntheses

Congratulations! This is the second c/4 orthogonal ship to be synthesised. Those two c/4 spaceships are a little less lonely now, because I found a 152-glider synthesis for xq4_y2oo7t0t7ooz2qgx8t2rgr2t8xgq2z122166y5661221, which has already been noticed and slightly improved by users on the Discord...

One of the guns in the quadrant that wwei23 constructed was out of phase by 32 ticks, but fortunately that was easy to fix. There's plenty of room for optimization if someone wants to, but it might be better to leave that to a script.
