I believe the original 19glider synthesis was found by Jason Summers, although I don't know when, since it was from earlier than when I started keeping track of dates. Catagolue lists a 13glider one, but I don't know where that's from. This could be reduced to 12, if one could make the loaf+ship constellation from 3 gliders.

Reduced by one:

Note that loaf, ship and pi are all producible from blinker+glider, which might lead to further reduction. The idea doesn't help to reduce the loaf+ship, though:
Code: Select all
x = 73, y = 28, rule = B3/S23

It's also the first asymmetric xs42 (it is born symmetrically but is shortly thereafter altered).

Here's the key part (@ 1150) for the Confused Eaters:
Code: Select all
x=10, y=13
o$3o$3bo$2b2o3$6bo2$3bo3b2o$4b2o2b2o$5b2obo2$4bo!
Turning this into a construction would be a useful exercise for those wanting to try and see how it's done. The constructions I have take at least 25 Gliders, and do not attach to an existing Fishhook Eater, so finding this would make possible all sorts of Confused Eaterlike oscillators constructions.

No, because there are still gaps at 45k and 46k. My prediction is that more gaps will be created (beyond 47k) before you manage to fill those.
