### Re: Pulling blocks orthogonally

Any chance of being able to move them back as well? The same thing can be done. It takes me more spaceships, though. Here's one way x = 57, y = 161, rule = B3/S23 25boo28boo\$25boo28boo23\$25boo28boo\$25boo28boo23\$25boo28boo\$25boo28boo 5\$20bo9b3o\$19b3o7bobbo\$18boobo10bo\$18b3o7bo3bo\$18b3o11bo\$19boo8bob...

### Re: Pulling blocks orthogonally

You could turn the block into a glider and back; e.g. x = 78, y = 173, rule = B3/S23 30boo44boo\$30boo44boo29\$30boo44boo\$30boo44boo29\$30boo44boo\$30boo44boo 7\$36bo\$24b3o8b3o\$24bobbo6boobo\$24bo9b3o\$24bo3bo5b3o\$24bo10boo\$25bobo3\$ 39bo\$38b3o\$37boobo\$37b3o\$37b3o\$37b3o\$38boo14\$24bo\$23b3o\$23boboo\$24b3o\$ 24b...

### Re: Flyby Reactions

Here's a very incomplete, and possibly obsolete, file of "turn into glider" reactions where a passing spaceship convoy turns an object into a glider, or into a ship or traffic light that can be turned into a glider. x = 293, y = 302, rule = B3/S23 24bo57bo53bo52bo\$12b3o8b3o44b3o8b3o40b3o8b3o39b3o8b3...

### Re: Flyby Reactions

Here are some glider duplicators, mostly built from modified glider turners. I don't know of any general catalog of "flyby" reactions. Such a thing would be useful, but unless the search could be completely automated, might be impractical to create. x = 543, y = 433, rule = B3/S23 221b3o\$106b3o111bo...

This isn't a "hammering" reaction, but it's fast and unconditional. Note that it also works on MWSSs, though it takes longer to recover. ................* ..............**. ...............** ................. ................. ................. ................. ..**............. *....*......**... ....

BTW, is there an absolute (any period, like the hammer reaction: two spaceships), p30, or p60 HWSS-to-LWSS converter? Do you care what happens if the HWSS is not present? I didn't find anything ready-made to do that, though at p60 at least, one could probably be built from this simple reaction: ......

### Re: Spiders, spaceships and syntheses

Dave Greene sent me an e-mail message containing the following partial synthesis: ... The fact that a complicated predecessor like that exists doesn't really help, but finding a lot of them and watching them evolve is a good way to get clues about how to attack the problem. If I remember correctly,...

### Re: Help needed with synthesizing my methuselah

What methods would you generally use to find syntheses such as these? In this case, I used gencols to search for 3-glider collisions whose product has a population of exactly 45 cells, then manually scanned the results for the target object. For some objects, there is no gencols filter that works w...

### Re: Spiders, spaceships and syntheses

I think that the next speed to go will be 2c/7, since the weekender is so small. Weekender predecessors have already been found, which looks promising. I've never been able to make much headway in constructing a weekender. If there are any recent results in that direction that I might not know abou...
