Glider, block and LWSS collision and everyone survives:

Code: Select all

``````x = 17, y = 21, rule = B3/S23

...
I just realized that the glider is delayed by exactly 1 tick in the above reaction. This gave me an idea of making a 1-tick glider delayer, which could be useful for controlling glider timings very precisely. The general mechanism is displayed below (using xWSSes to avoid clearance issues):

Code: Select all

``````x = 28, y = 102, rule = B3/S23
5b2o\$5b3o\$4bob2o\$4b3o\$5bo4\$5bobo\$8bo\$8bo\$5bo2bo\$6b3o5\$8bobo\$11bo\$7bo3b

11bo3bo\$11bo\$12bobo4\$8b3o\$8bo2bo\$8bo\$8bo\$9bobo!
``````
When the glider is present, as shown above, your reaction produces a 1-tick delayed glider, moving the block in the process. Then the LWSS participating in the reaction gets destroyed by an eater 1, and 4 of the remaining xWSSes restore the block to its original position. The remaining LWSS is destroyed by another eater 1, and its purpose is to clean up the reaction if the glider is absent:

Code: Select all

``````x = 28, y = 102, rule = B3/S23
5b2o\$5b3o\$4bob2o\$4b3o\$5bo4\$5bobo\$8bo\$8bo\$5bo2bo\$6b3o5\$8bobo\$11bo\$7bo3b

11bo3bo\$11bo\$12bobo4\$8b3o\$8bo2bo\$8bo\$8bo\$9bobo!
``````
On their own, the 4 xWSSes that restore the block when the glider moves it in the previous reaction, now just create a single blinker (they also react with the block but leave it unaffected). The final LWSS cleans up this blinker. Overall, this mechanism will only work with periods that are multiple of 2 (because of the blinker), but what does it matter when you can adjust glider timings to anything at all. Just put some guns (of any period of your choosing) to fire these 6 xWSSes at the reaction site, and you're done. (This is why we use xWSSes instead of gliders, as guns tend to be much closer to the reaction site, probably not giving enough room for the input glider to enter.)

Long story short, this reaction is definitely not completely useless.
Could this be completed? I have no idea where to place the guns to complete this 1-tick glider delayer, though I know it is definitely possible.
My new p2p:

Code: Select all

I think we'd need a specific use case where this particular 1-tick delayer mechanism would be an improvement on every other 1-tick delayer that we already have available. Otherwise it's just a bit too complicated to synchronize all those glider and *WSS signals, just to do something that we can do without any synchronization.

When we want to delay a glider by one tick, we could either

1) build a one-time 0-degree 0-lane shifter on the glider lane, or
2) put a demultiplexer on the glider lane, just in front of a few Snarks that delay the glider a little bit. Route the deflected glider from the demultiplexer to a merge circuit that drops the glider back onto the same lane it would have been on otherwise, just one tick slower.

The second option gets used every now and again, in resettable guns and oscillators -- e.g., mersenne-82589933.mc.gz in Golly's Help > Online Archives > Computation ... Devices, which effectively speeds up a glider by one tick rather than slowing it down, but it would be easy to change it so that it added one to the period instead of subtracting one.

EDIT: On a second look, it seems a bit odd to use up so incredibly many *WSSes to do the block reset, when it's just a standard (2,1) block pull. Would something like this count as a completion?

However, the glider that restores the block could potentially collide with the LWSS stream from a gun. It also delays the glider by many ticks, not one. So I wouldn't consider this to be a 1-tick glider delayer.

I can, though it is periodic rather than stable. Replacing some catalysts with a figure eight according to one of my old posts yields a 0-degree colour-preserving reflector. With a repeat time of 80 ticks, the device shifts a glider by 6hd to a transparent lane.

In what way does it look like it's in jslife osc-supported? There isn't an "s0050.lif" file, and there doesn't seem to be anything relevant in Sokwe's osc-supplement either.

That's not to say that somebody hasn't found it before -- I haven't thoroughly looked at the three pages of p50s in the Oscillator Discussion thread, but the p50 honeyfarm hassler that shows up is a dimer, not a monomer like this one.

No doubt this can be done smaller with p5 bumpers or some such, but support is possible with just Snarks:

Of course, you can always put p159 guns to clear up the blocks, but that won't be an elegant solution.

Maybe—this conduit produces two gliders, but also two blocks.

Edit: The blocks can be cleaned up with one glider, but I can't seem to put some of the smaller reflectors together to get a 1hd offset:

The active region colliding with the block, strangely, is made up of a block and glider and another copy itself rotated 90 degrees.

### 2 new discoveries

Hello! I made 2 discoveries. I looked throught the entire https://playgameoflife.com/lexicon lexicon. Both are not in there. So I guess, they are new. I made the names too. Discovered 6th August 2023. So here they are:

2-Pi-heptomino-mess (2Phm)
2 Pi-heptominos facing witht he openings to eachother 2 bits apart.

P-pentomino-and-Block-glider-maker (PpaBgm)
a P-pentomino with a Block making a glider in generation 7.

I hope they are new discoveries. Please tell me, if they are or not.

### Re: 2 new discoveries

The first is notable, but it's already known; it's the basis of the p44 pi-heptomino hassler.

The second is just random scribbling. Pure glider generators stopped being notable in the early 1970s.

Plz, do your homework: read the forum rules. Learn the forum customs and respect them. ( hint: in the first post, newcomers humblily present themselves )

Teach yourself on the subject... ther are some patterns not covered in the lexicon. The book is a good starting point.

``````x = 18, y = 21, rule = LifeHistory

Don't start a new thread unless there is a very good reason. There are already too many of them.

What is this ?
The part to the northwest is a somewhat messy way of producing the same glider output as a glider-producing switch engine, but with four engines instead of one. So this is another case where it's possible to create millions of different puffer variants with the same number of switch engines, none of which are any more interesting than any of the others, that all produce the same glider output plus varying amounts of random junk.

The rest looks like chaotic leftover debris; it might be better to trim that kind of extraneous mess out before posting.

I removed the leftover debris.

Almost a pulsar.
