Maybe we could make something out of that p7 weak grin spark.
Well, it supports another p7 bumper variant (but I'm not sure how useful that necessarily is):

Here's a smaller p7 pipsquirter; not sure if it's known.

I "went down" from the same front end of the classic pipsquirter 2, but haven't searched exhaustively.

Wow. Definitely not known. It fits almost completely inside the bounding box of one of the standard high-clearance variants of the p7 pipsquirter on the LifeWiki, and even leaves an empty row that would allow the bouncer's eater to be replaced with a higher-clearance oscillator, if the period worked out.

It also compares very favorably with the "thin" pipsquirter variant advertised in the LifeWiki article -- same width on one side, with only a short section protruding farther than the old version (in a place where there isn't usually a problem because the glider has to go by there anyway, in the context of a bumper) and two extra rows on the other side:

Or the pipsquirter can be moved down one cell if necessary, and the bouncer works just the same and we're still ahead by one row.

EDIT: There are some obvious alternations to save a few cells and make the lower side slightly less obtrusive:

It would help if you explain why you need it. I might guess that you want to complete the following potential gun:

Code: Select all

If so, I don't know of any compatible sparker.

Maybe, but it's trivially constructible anyway. Still it's a nice demonstration on Block-keeping components.

It appears to be an unnoticed variant of caterer on figure eight with a smaller bounding box than the known version. Nice observation!

Wow! Congratulations -- that's something that doesn't come along every year, or even every half-decade. That's the first unknown oscillator period to show up since 2013. Do you have a name for it, or should it just be 122P23? (unless someone can reduce the stator, but I don't see any likely optimizations offhand.)

Only four periods left! (19, 38 41, and 34 if we insist on non-triviality.)

EDIT: A little misuse of SlowLife makes it into a symmetric oscillator with mod eleven-and-a-half (so to speak):

Code: Select all

``````x = 46, y = 41, rule = SlowLife

Very nice indeed, there is the obvious variant too that somewhat expose a weak spark, but I see no use to it sadly.
