I reduced the cleanup of some Corderships to two gliders.

2-engine Cordership in 8 gliders, previously 9 gliders :

That makes for an awesome first post -- welcome to the forums! Might have to try a glider-to-Cordership converter rebuild now -- though there's still the problem of two of those gliders being retrograde ones, coming in down the middle of the Cordership's exit lane and making the repeat time worse.

I guess that's no different from current G-to-Cordership converters, though. It might be interesting to see what other discoveries from the last half-decade might contribute to making a smaller converter.

I found a way of adding that small component (muzik called it a "crotchet" a few posts up) onto the edge of an appropriate c/3 spaceship, so that entire family of c/3 ships should now have syntheses:

x = 53, y = 39, rule = B3/S23

A slightly better cleanup for the final step, two component applications found with transfer.py, and the following component improved using a 3G fast boat which previously costed 5G :

Found a strategy to make a loafer with a hypothetical repeat time of 137:

There is 1 less glider in the way of making that loaf... I am still hoping one can insert it and get a repeat time of 120 or 128, but maybe I am asking for too much, well, still better than the 144 I got before.

Addendum: strat with repeat time 130:

Code: Select all

x = 152, y = 103, rule = LifeHistory

My best bet to actually improve the repeat time is to manage to make the following spark:

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 13, rule = LifeHistory

the first four seems promising, only consumes a glider with 2 sparks, one domino soark or "preblinker-like, and one constrained banana spark or some equivalency of a large V spark... so not completely impossible to reach, I hope... anyways, gives great-grand parent:

Crab reduced to 11G:

Code: Select all

x = 49, y = 45, rule = B3/S23
35bo$33b2o$34b2o4$8bo$9b2o$8b2o3$48bo$46b2o$35bo11b2o$34bo$34b3o3$32bo

5b2o5bobo$obo4bobo7bo$9bo!
Edit: Alternate 11G synthesis with one less glider coming from the NE which should be slightly simpler to make into a 3-sided synthesis:

Code: Select all

x = 45, y = 51, rule = B3/S23
31bo$29b2o$30b2o4$4bo$5b2o$4b2o3$44bo$42b2o$43b2o2$25bobo$25b2o$26bo

EDIT by dvgrn: That's a big step down from Kazyan's 14G recipe from 2020! Have updated the LifeWiki Crab article.

Alternate way to make a loafer... there is probably a better way still to make the "top" spark on the glider, but here is 1 more that require to fit a B:

Code: Select all

x = 52, y = 50, rule = LifeHistory

23.C.C$25.C12.2C$37.2C$39.C$26.C$26.2C$25.C.C!
There is also this, but it has its own issues...

Code: Select all

x = 48, y = 25, rule = LifeHistory
4$19.C$17.C.C$18.2C4$7.A16.A$8.A13.2A$6.3A14.2A$37.2BA4.2B$13.2D22.3B

And this that is at least only using lwss and gliders, so hopefully the bottom bit of the loafer missing can be inserted from the north-side a bit easier:

Code: Select all

x = 100, y = 60, rule = LifeHistory

Im no synthesis expert, but I meshed together some synthesizes from Catagolue. resulting in the following 26 glider synthesis of the base still life ... 26 gliders seems like a lot, but Im sure it can be reduced.
EDIT: so close!! just need to insert the clocks ...
Nice work! Here's the completed synthesis from 79 gliders
1) The first third of your synthesis is rotated 90 degrees from the rest
2) Step #3 adds a block to the snake (which is then ignored; this step can be eliminated)
3) The long^4 snake in parts 8-16 is one shorter than what was created earlier
(although it goes back to the correct length for the last two steps)
4) Clocks are generally difficult to add; those should be added BEFORE any of the other still-lifes
