### Re: Extended Life

Found a compact AK47 (p94 glider gun)

Code: Select all

x = 24, y = 25, rule = extendedlife

And with perma-on-cells as glider eaters - I find perma-on-cell-eaters quite counterintuitive, therefore I like them: Code: Select all x = 20, y = 25, rule = extendedlife 14.2A$14.2A$8.FA$8.2A$4.F4$19.E5$8.A$7.A.A$6.A3.A$E5.A3.A$6.A3.A$7.A.

And a small 4-barreled p44 glider gun:

Code: Select all

x = 6, y = 3, rule = extendedlife

The glider streams are p41.
This is perhaps the most compact 4-barreled glider gun so far, using just 10 cells.

I can make it nine:

Code: Select all

x = 6, y = 6, rule = extendedlife

Sorry, I didn't remember it from a year ago. It could be reduced to 4-barrel, requiring eight cells to start. But that is not very satisfying, for sure.

This 16-barrel p3671 gun starts from just 5 cells:

### Re: Extended Life

I was playing around with stabilizing wicks using Extended Life and came across a p72 oscillator which, when perturbed, can be made into a p72 herschel factory. Here, I've added a h -> g to make a glider gun:

Code: Select all

x = 45, y = 29, rule = extendedlife
2.E3.4E.14E.4E3.E$16.4A14.2A$2A12.2A18.3A$2A12.A17.EA2.A$14.A5.A12.A.

Another way to make a gun:

Code: Select all

x = 72, y = 35, rule = extendedlife
