Did your opinions about it, I call this thing "The Gosper Machine".

thanks

Nice one, this is basically a GGG stargun which uses a 4 shuttles reactions to stabilize.

another chapter of my "project Gosper Machine"... :roll:

I made some improvements in the stabilization
I managed to stabilize the 4 guns in the center with a figure more symmetrical as possible (I think)
I think this is the final version now (I hope)
Thank's all for your patience and comments

for even more symmetricality:

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

WOW Man !

was exactly what I wanted ...
I think the design is perfect now !
and revealed a beautiful symmetry in the center of the figure

thank you very much for you help!
P.S. the final design of this thing was simpler than I expected, it was just a question of doing the right thing! :wink:

The next step would be to build a pseudo agar with this...

Here it is. It only works for a few generations due to the rogue gliders, but it's pretty.

very interesting! I will keep this pattern in my file
i think this pattern helps me to understand a lot of things about how Life works
I need study it ...

to make an agar I think in something like that.
the middle part is a bit difficult , maybe with Gosper guns firing out the gliders.

this is a prototype agar (work in progress)
ideas are very welcome :)

Gosper (pseudo?) agar

Due to the fact that queen bees repeat themselves facing the opposite direction (plus a beehive) it is trivial to make the 'agar' totally symmetrical:

Exactly! With a little practice it becomes trivial ...
I think I'm learning to "play" Game of Life now. In my opinion, this is some kind of "reverse modeling process"
What do you think?

The Frankgosper is a very problematic design
the only thing salvageable in this concept is a stabilization with only three sides, as shown below:

Man, if there was the price of the strangest GGG...
It reminds me that, before creating the actual gun model, Bill created a 6-shuttle gun, but it didn't work because the escaping glider crashed a shuttle.
However, notice well your gun is 2 separate multi-shuttle objects

This is a blockless trigun which uses shuttles to make it's own gliders collide the beehives created by the gun.

EDITED: The Gosper Caterpillar

I think this is the smallest device possible that can shoot 16 gliders in 1 cycle of 30 generations.
can be used in form of juxtaposed modules, if you need a large flow of gliders for something (for bombing a random soup for example :P )

This is a blockless trigun which uses shuttles to make it's own gliders collide the beehives created by the gun.
broken the bee hive with a glider .... hummm .... very smart!
I will try use this in my future designs

thank you!

Notice the upper reaction, where the glider collides with the turning shuttle. The collision doesn't damages the shuttles which successfully goes back to the bow phase, bu it prevents it to create a beehive.

For me, the one thing I would find interesting for queen bees would be A new useful reaction for queen bees other than the GGG reaction, buckaroo reflector or the production of hives.
Just for demonstration of how easy it is to engineer these patterns, here is a stator-less gun:

well ... I'm still learning to play "Life" and you criticism make me complexify my models and this is a good thing for me
as you know, create something totally new with this reaction is a very difficult thing
by the way ... i found in my experiments a "new" (at least i supose it is new) reaction Involved queens bees. It's does nothing, only not explodes and complete one cycle in 30 generations.
but this reaction form some interesting patterns in the midlle.
maybe this could be connected with another type of cycle, the type that occurs in perpendicular axis to the cycle of queen bees
Take a look at this, maybe someone with more experience / ability can do something useful with it.

there's still thousands of similar fuse-burning reactions to be found. Who knows? Some of them may be interesting!

Dear friends,

Firstly I would like to thank you all for your patience with my silly "discoveries" and the constructive criticism and suggestions
I'll stop posting about GGG I promise, but I think that sometimes even the simplest things can reveal a surprising complexity.
The truth is: the cycle of GGG always intrigued me and, looking at it, I always thought he was part of something bigger.
What I've been trying to do with all these posts (fighting my bad skills in Life, fighting my poor english, fighting all) is to say that the GGG, as designed by Bill Gosper in 1970 with her cycle 30p, is only a small piece of a bigger thing, this thing is what i called "Gosper Machine" and now I think it comes in this final version.
You may say that I drew is just a trivial thing, that thing just shoots a lot of gliders without doing anything useful, it is only done with collage of parts already well known, without adding anything new ... all is right!
But I think looking at the complete structure of these thing reveals fundamental truths about the nature of the game "Life", for example, the spiral nature of the buildings that evolve spontaneously in the game and - if you just consider each arm of the machine individually - the complete cycle of the oscillator 30p appears (of which only a part is GGG) firing 4 gliders every cycle.

eureka!

I found my friends! I found!
was a long road, but I found ! :twisted:

the final version of each arm of the my Gosper Machine fires 3 gliders each period of 30 generations.
the first glider in generation 10 the second in generation 20 and third in generation 30. ( each arm fire a glider every 10 generations, forming a period of 30 generations in total ).
this is the real cycle that the cycle of Gosper Glider Gun is only one part!
what I mean is that : the cycle of the Gosper Glider Gun (30p), as found by Bill Gosper in 1970 is only a part of a bigger mechanism

Look the mechanism of the true and complete Gosper Machine and understand what I'm saying
