### Re: Thread for basic questions

What is the expected method / constraints? E.g. one could destroy the settled honeyfarm and construct a block in empty space by colliding gliders. Or one could use a slow salvo aimed at the settled honeyfarm to transform it into a block in the desired location. Can the honey farm be turned into a b...

### Re: Thread for basic questions

It is possible to make a converter with adjusting output clearance? If I understand correctly, you could create a block, then push the block as far as needed, and then convert the block into a sideways glider. (The repeat time would not be too good, but the lane of the output glider could be as far...

### Re: Thread for basic questions

It is possible to make a converter with adjusting output clearance? That is, you can make the output clearance as high as possible? One possibility of doing this is to make an X-to-wickstretcher converter plus a glider that be adjusted to different timings through the spacing of reflectors to ignite...

Why does the dove have a special role in conduits even though only 3 conduits are known with it as an input (and all output a glider, which can be easily obtained another way).
