After reading about the p42/p63/p84 period-multiplying mechanisms I realised that the old blocker trick suffices to turn p84 into p168:
5 rows removed by replacing the overwhelmed Snark+blocker with an overwhelmed tremi-Snark:

Is there any catalyst that will allow this p86 gun to work while still creating the honey farm?

Is a p53 gun using this mechanism possible? Sparking this gliders by the dozen sequence results in two gliders and two Herschels while leaving behind the same sequence 53 generations later.

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 23, rule = B3/S23

5bo$2bo5bo$3bo3bo$4b3o4$2b4o$8o$2bo2bo!
EDIT (I don't want to triple post):
In 56 generations (also works in 55), the beehives reappear plus two H'. If we can get a p42+ sparker that leaves enough room for the H', we can get guns of multiple periods.

Code: Select all

x = 23, y = 23, rule = B3/S23

p45; the blocks are to suppress other blocks; move the catalyst and you'll have more room, or you can try to squeeze a p5 in there.

Not a record though — but maybe this might help to improve some different guns.

Ah... and while I am at it: p76 gun, not sure what it the state of the art for that one though...
Nowadays the SOTA is pretty much consistently on Catagolue at a page such as https://catagolue.hatsya.com/object/gun_76/b3s23

Yours is 92 * 68 = 6256 bounding box cells, which vastly improves on the current 7865 cells.
Well, I was not sure if kazyan found that one already (since he posted a very nice p70 gun with the same idea), but if it is not so, here some improved p76 gun then (with further reduction to the p4 spark:

here some improved p76 gun then (with further reduction to the p4 spark):
I used this as a basis to find a shorter solution with JLS:

There may be shorter solutions.

It's based on A for awesome's monomerization of hotdogPi's new p32 oscillator. The blinker-to-glider reaction was found by wwei23. I'm sure the large p4 sparkers can be reduced.

It also uses a p32 traffic light hassler found by Noam Elkies on April 6, 2010. At the time he made this prescient comment:
Noam Elkies wrote:Meanwhile here's a new TL push by the usual 3 cells but in the
novel 19 or 21 steps and an unexpected direction, shown here
as a back-and-forth hassler of period 21+11 = 32. This requires
deleting half of the TL; instead of deleting those two blinkers,
there might be a way to use them as glider fodder -- we have no
p32 guns yet, right?
Edit: reduced the largest p4 somewhat:

I actually found it yesterday and silently uploaded it to Catagolue, hoping that someone would find it and be shocked. However, given that it's been 17 hours, and people might not even realize that it's a completely different gun and not a reduction (they're both honey farm hasslers), I decided to post it here now.

I see I see, it is an improvement, indeed... glad you posted it here, you see, as I am shocked! Great find ^_^

There's one that requires catalyzing a wing to put a block in the correct position. The period will be odd and probably in the 40s, but it depends on how long it takes. (Kazyan has been doing the search and isn't done yet but has found nothing so far.)

The discussion started from the basic question thread.

Maybe post the "source of said block predecessor", then? Otherwise I have to make one up for testing purposes, but really I have no idea if I've got one that's compatible with your intended use.
An unsuppressed Fx119 has a very good dot spark hiding in it -- maybe this will be good enough until something better comes along.
...
Now that is something working! The block predecessor is from centinal:

Upon realizing that a centinal can be rephased by removing the transient pair of blocks, I tried to construct a MWSS gun at periods 46+100n. It turns out that the timing for a chain of 3 Snarks+syringe+L156 on the left is off by 4 ticks, and so cannot be fixed by moving the trombone slide. How, then, to circulate signal(s) on the left and send a glider to the right to complete the mechanism?
Best wishes to our brave taikonauts on Shenzhou 13!

Upon realizing that a centinal can be rephased by removing the transient pair of blocks, I tried to construct a MWSS gun at periods 46+100n. It turns out that the timing for a chain of 3 Snarks+syringe+L156 on the left is off by 4 ticks, and so cannot be fixed by moving the trombone slide. How, then, to circulate signal(s) on the left and send a glider to the right to complete the mechanism?
It's easier to answer this kind of question if I can look at the thing you built that doesn't quite work. How about a 3 snarks+syringe+L112+Bandersnatch? Moving the Bandersnatch to one side or the other of one of the Snarks will change the timing by 4 ticks.

Another thought, if the period is not a multiple of 8, can the timing problem be fixed by moving the trombone slide after all -- just moving it so far that you change the number of signals in the loop?

Never mind, the loaf2GtoG works in this situation if the twit eater is removed! Here is a large p746 MWSS gun:

How to reduce the bounding box at the bottom? It does not look like the idea will lead to any records for 46+100n in the gun collection...
Sorry for the long delay, but I had a terrible night with DryLife — I spent so much time that there is not any water to bath later!

How to reduce the bounding box at the bottom?
The first standard trick is just to add more pairs of Snarks. That never changes the timing mod 8, it just increases the total time by 8, so then you can move a trombone slide back one step to compensate for each added pair:

There's a bunch of extra time to use up in the bottom loop, so you can try things like mirroring the Bandersnatch so that it moves the glider away from instead of toward its target, and moving it to the other side of a Snark if you end up with a 4-mod-8 timing change.

Adding a twist so the glider path crosses itself often helps with denser packings. It didn't hurt at the top (shown above) but it didn't help anything either. For higher period guns it would work to add another twist toward the top right, to use up the empty space there.
