### Re: Small Spaceship Syntheses

I reduced the 46P4H1V0 synthesis from 88 to 79 gliders. Quite unfortunate that this reduction was made just one day after the completion of the first 46P4H1V0 gun . The synthesis has repeat time of 503 ticks. x = 1866, y = 567, rule = B3/S23 13bo550bo6bo$14bo547b2o6bo$12b3o548b2o5b3o2$20bo$21b2o$20b...

### Re: Stable signal converters

I have completed a glider-to-46P4H1V0 converter. It has a repeat time of 612 ticks: glider-to-c4! (rp 612).rle I made it using these two scripts by chris_c along with considerable usage of shift.py. The second script doesn't work perfectly so I had to place some of the edgeshooters manually. I also ...

Nice construction! I've been looking into creating a spaghetti monster heisenburp but it's quite difficult to find bait still-life constellations because of the lack of prominent sparks on the outer lanes of the spaghetti monster's path. Here's the best I could find. It has 5 bait still lifes and sh...
