x = 428, y = 439, rule = B3/S23

P14 glider gun ATTEMPT. Uses a 5G GIG mechanism instead of the usual 6G GIG. Doesn't beat any records, although the DIAGONAL bounding box is probably smaller.
Could any of these be helpful?

I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.

Sorry for being rude, but I think this can’t help much.(u can just put these things into the p14gun to see if they really work.

Here's a sample implementation of the Kazyanic filter, set here to septuple the period of a P144 glider gun to P1008. While this doesn't reduce anything in this case, I'm posting this in the hopes that this or something similar leads to an actual reduction!

x = 170, y = 209, rule = LifeHistory

EDIT: Here, I have reconfigured the Kazyanic filter to instead act as a period-quintupler (though there's the quinti-snark, though that's a pulse divider, NOT a filter). I know that it works with Fumarole, Hebdarole, and 50P9.

There may be smaller solutions. Here is slightly larger gun that is one cell thinner and one cell taller:

This second gun represents the minimum possible width, but not necessarily the minimum height at this width.

The period-3 eater replacement can reduce this to 47-by-47 (or the slightly smaller 48-by-46 using your previous pattern).

Did you set up the search with LLS? I must confess, I don't have any experience in that area.

A number of period-multiplied p87 guns will become smaller, as well.
All of these can be shrunk (including the p29) if the p3 can be reshaped to fit the p261 gun into the following bounding box:

Very nice! The small p87-based guns are thus as follows:

Code: Select all

RLE
...plus some potential for the p957 gun, which could be constructed from the p33 and p87 guns somehow(?). I'm also sure that there is a cheaper, non-Herschel based mechanism to add the extra gliders in a p27 gun.
I have no idea why the P3 bumper variant on the left is used if the one on the right fits:

Code: Select all

x = 54, y = 24, rule = B3/S23

Searching for "P33" in this thread didn't give any RLEs back to page 11, when said gun was still large, so the small P33 gun was apparently never posted here.

I'm afraid this thread has gotten into a semi-abandoned state, and we're very close to having the new Source of Truth be the Catagolue 'gun' textcensus.

Maybe we should start a new thread for post-Catagolue gun improvements, to try to get this most longest-runningest of the Pointless Optimization Games back on track again?

I think this thread isn't dead more than new discoveries of gun reductions; gun reduction posts still go here.
I guess this p33 didn't show up because there's this thread for new gun engine (but imho should have been reposted here, oops for all of us)

Using a recent p13 sparker, its bounding box can be reduced further, to 33×52
Using a different p9 spaker brings the bounding box down to 42×29:

Looking at https://catagolue.hatsya.com/textcensus ... -costs/gun, the new p117 gun appears to be the smallest odd-period gun by far.

Also, the multiples of 117 haven't been submitted yet. I'm not familiar with quinti-Snarks and whatever else there is, so I can't do it myself. It might also help for p39 pseudo-period.

It's easy to make a start -- just look up quinti-Snark, quadri-Snark, tremi-Snark, and semi-Snark on the LifeWiki or in the Life Lexicon in Golly. Maybe someone will look at an initial effort and manage some clever weld, or find that two semi-Snarks improbably fits a bounding box better than a single quadri-Snark somehow, but it's all progress anyway.

Here, I'll take the first turn: the period-doubled one looks complicated because you have to choose between CC and CP options for semi-Snarks and semi-cenarks, but usually the old CC semi-Snark is the smallest option for these kinds of things. I've notmagicboxed the likely candidate, which drops the p234 gun from 3726 cells to 2204 cells:

Code: Select all

x = 58, y = 38, rule = B3/S23

... There's nothing weird and wonderful that can be done with a filter to beat this, is there? Like some small p12 or p26 sparker that I have totally forgotten is a thing? No, p26 wouldn't work, would need p52. Anyway it's someone else's turn now.

That looks unlikely, since 39*2 is 78 which is just inside the range of a syringe, and we have a really efficient period-thickening trick for a small p78 Herschel factory.

We have straightforward period multipliers that can yield 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, and 8x periods...but 7x is tricky. Here's an awful proof of concept for a period septupler, in which the output of a quinti-snark (with an eater removed to use the obscure sexti-snark form) crosses paths with the 1x source stream. Attempts to use a single bumper, bouncer, or snark with this method didn't give me any obvious successes, but I figure someone can work with this.

Code: Select all

x = 106, y = 79, rule = LifeHistory
