p37 gun partial based off a highly-forgotten p37 dependent reflector by Goldenratio, dot spark has absolutely no clearance issues whatsoever (Unlike HotdogPi's own partial p37 gun):

Highly-forgotten indeed. I don't remember it and can't seem to find where it was initially posted. Can you provide a link? (Edit: link provided on Discord. See edit below for details.)

Almost a p102 gun; we just need to delete the block. If one of the unices can replaced with a custom p6 sparker, it will work, and the bounding box will be 49×48 = 2352, much better than the current 3776. There are several spark locations that work that can delete the block, and fortunately, the unix spark and the block deletion spark must be on at the same time, making it easier to find.

x = 49, y = 48, rule = B3/S23

Here's a 27x27 "QBless" period-30 glider gun (An improvement over the Pi-factory "QBless" gun (42x31) and an earlier single-QB completion of this design (30x28)), using a p6 domino sparker initially designed to reduce a p72 oscillator:

There could be potential for a single-engine design too, but IDK...

Edit: Turns out I was somehow comparing against the p79 gun (which is still 65x64), not the old p83 gun (83x52)... :roll:

Nice! It's not really important, but you can save two cells on the stator by deleting the extra glider earlier:

Code: Select all

x = 66, y = 30, rule = B3/S23
