Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

Using the recent developments in 3c/7 technology, I constructed a psuedo-period p7 3c/7 rake. The true period is 84:

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.
