I feel certain that some absurdly shaped sparker will be found that will work for this.

"October 5: Based on a partial result by Mitchell Riley, iNoMed completes a p42 glider gun fitting in a 32×23 bounding box, making it currently the seventh smallest true-period glider gun."

@ iNoMed :

KUDOS !

Could you post the pattern here please ?

Thank You !

Unfortunately, it's larger than the standard 45x44 design as it has a 65x40 bounding box...

Edit: Here's a modified version that replaces the glider release with a different mechanism based on the p27 traffic light hassler:

Unfortunately the 8x multiplier mechanism isn't quite lightweight enough to improve on a quadri-Snark plus a semi-Snark. Three semi-Snarks is even lower population (549 cells):

Elementary period multipliers above 4x are still as rare as hens' teeth and are definitely worth collecting However, this particular mechanism is really a doubling of a known 4x, and we already have good ways to do that.

It's mostly the prime-period multipliers that will allow for new record-breaking guns at this point.
