As written, this looks like a conduit that changes empty space into a herschel and a century, which would indeed be truly remarkable. I assume that the herschel should be green. When you post, it is usually a good idea to hit "preview" first instead of "submit" to make sure the post is as intended. Embedded patterns (even in LifeHistory now) should be run in the LifeViewer, to make sure they perform as expected. I have frequently found typos or pattern errors in my posts this way.Gustavo6046 wrote:EDIT: GUYS QUICK look what I found!!!! ...

That format is, in fact, used in the Elementary Conduits Collection, so there's nothing inherently wrong with it; it just makes it slightly harder for other users to see whether it works. By the way, white or possibly yellow are also acceptable colors.

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
Yes, if all the inputs were green/white/yellow in the ECC, you couldn't reliably run the stamp collection pattern  stray outputs would be flying all over the place. So there you generally just change the one input you're interested in.A for awesome wrote:That format is, in fact, used in the Elementary Conduits Collection, so there's nothing inherently wrong with it; it just makes it slightly harder for other users to see whether it works.

When there's just one pattern being quoted on the forums, if it's supposed to be runnable, it's really nice if it's in a form that LifeViewer can run. It definitely increases the audience: relatively few people will bother to copy the pattern out into Golly to see exactly what it does.
In this case, the pattern does indeed convert a Herschel into a century. However, the "output" century is completely surrounded by still lifes, and within ten ticks it crashes into two of those catalysts, without ever going outside of its previous reaction envelope. So it's impossible to add any further catalysts, which makes it pretty definitely a dead end.

An eater4 can eat half of a traffic light:
That makes them useful for hassling traffic lights, if nothing else... See for example the p29 and p58 oscillators in Dean Hickerson's stamp collection (in Golly's Patterns/Life/Oscillators/).

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
Being my thread lowtraffic I'd like to point out a new possible gliderconverting arrangement if the red dot that forms upon the glider's contact can be transformed into anything useful:
I have also found several other similiar interactions where only a single dot arises after a glider contact; and the catalog is here:
It's still growing; so the full one is still Coming Soon™.

x = 10, y = 11, rule = LifeHistory

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
The last one is probably the best, since a failure to use it results in a clean destruction. (But that's just my opinion.)

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
Indeed. After all, using the dots is quite a difficult task.Gamedziner wrote:The last one is probably the best, since a failure to use it results in a clean destruction. (But that's just my opinion.)
And I found out this reaction to be semiinteresting for me:
Code: Select all
x = 13, y = 13, rule = LifeHistory
6.C$5.C$5.3C2$3.D$2E.2E$2E.E.E$3.E.3E$3.2E3.E$6.2E.E$7.E.E$5.E3.E.2E$
5.2E2.2E.E!
EDIT: And this supertiny variation is easier:
Code: Select all
x = 9, y = 13, rule = LifeHistory
6.C$5.C2B$4.B3C$2ED2.2B$.E2.3B$.E.2E$2E.E.E$3.E.3E$3.2E3.E$6.2E$3.2E.

Thanks! I guess I remember that one from somewhere.. Anyways, I want to find new reactions, glidertodot converters where the dot is open for any catalysis.gmc_nxtman wrote: It can be made into a true glider eater:

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
Just out of curiosity, have this already been found?

x = 15, y = 14, rule = LifeHistory

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
If it was, it was marked as uninteresting by its discoverer. The discoverer was probably a search program for turners and splitters from glider collisions with closely separated spartan objects, though all such searches I know had a small bounding box and might not have actually gotten to the one you put.
Yours is uninteresting because onetime splitters and turners work with gliders, which are longrange signals, while Herschels are shortrange; they need an immediate conduit or they just make the familiar dinosaur head. This would have been marked by the program mentioned above as an unsuccessful constellation and it would have moved on.
No real project of interest is likely to use both Herschel conduits and onetimeturners/splitters, so something with a little bit of each actually is useful to neither.

Can you please explain what the "dinosaur head" is?biggiemac wrote:familiar dinosaur head

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns
Run Gustavo's pattern to T=72. You'll see a glider heading northwest, a 7bit pattern heading south which is called a "Herschel", and some fastfading sparks.drc wrote:Can you please explain what the "dinosaur head" is?biggiemac wrote:familiar dinosaur head
Keep running the pattern for another 128 ticks, to T=200, and (if you're running in Golly's LifeHistory rule or in LifeViewer with the standard theme) the Herschel's "reaction envelope" will appear  upside down in this case. The dinosaur head is mostly made of blue OFF cells, and has a ship for an eye, a blunt nose, and a couple of blocks decorating the neck.
If you run any methuselah, you'll see Herschelgenerated "dinosaur heads" popping up all round the edges of the active area. Acorn produces at least four, for example. Rpentominoes and Bheptominoes both naturally evolve into Herschels while moving a fair distance, so this is one of the most common ways that chaotic Life patterns colonize new territory.
