Re: Soup search results

Just wanted to mention that a new category yl72 has turned up in G1. The pattern consists of two block laying switch engines that are in sync such that the period halves from 144 to 72.

A well known c205 against the grain wick can be terminated on the right.

You‘re right, pasting error... I just wanted to get that thing out quickly, as I won‘t be able to spend much time on spaceship searching for the next two weeks. Maybe you could spend some time on c/6 grey ship components? You seem to succeed where I fail. Also 2c/5 and 2c/6 against the grain are sti...

Thanks for your constant support and fixes of my errors! I'm a little overworked and thus spend less attention on search setup and results and make silly mistakes.

Just to clarify the notion of greyship (as mentioned in the spaceship main article): A greyship in the sense I meant it is not a single spaceship, but rather a grammar of combinable components to build arbitrarily large ships of maximum average density. It is a long outstanding conjecture that the m...

Re: Challenge: Moving Rake Gun (AKA Rake Rake)

As the boundary of a finite pattern can only grow quadratically, the population growth can only be quadratically at most. Otherwise, at some point in time the boundary diamond would be too crowded with live cells and we would have sudden death through over population.

Re: Agar crawlers

Ooh, I see. Sorry. But the main point of the post was that the complex Puffer can be replaced by a simpler hive puffer! That is still valid. Only we need to go back to the U shape on the right. I‘ll fix this as soon as I get to it.

Wow! A true tour de force. You seem to have separated the task in subtasks and solved every one of them separately. All these subtasks have complex solutions only and all of them in the end must be put together. Great work! Could you give building a quarter max a try? That looks to me like needing a...

Wonderful! Another gap closed. This connection fits to all the standard parts we already have.

A 2c/5 grey stretcher still seems out of reach, unfortunately.
