Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
Not to open another knightship can of worms, but has anyone looked at the possibility of knightgreyships? Are there any known edges that build, or eat, stripes agar at (2,1)c/something?
Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
@rokicki: That's a very nice partial.
On a more serious note, I can't recall any knight wise grey ship components being posted, though there have been a few higher period components found (like this c/6 erosion component and Hartmut has found some 2c/6 against the grain components, but not been able to complete a ship). There are surely (2,1)c/6 components to extend, and probably consume the stripes agar, but finding the corners to hold it together when we can't even find a single (2,1)c/6 elementary ship? Phew, the mind boggles.

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
As far as I know there has been very little searching done for a c/8 diagonal ship. I should point out that WLS and JLS are faster than gfind for diagonallyshaped searches. Searches for short, wide ships might also be useful. Sometimes you can find a short, wide component and use that as the wings of a long, skinny core. This is how 56P6H1V0 and lobster were found.AforAmpere wrote:searched up to w6 with gfind in all symmetries, how much has been previously searched?
This is known, and can be found in my moving object collection. This particular component is in velocityc5o/shipsc5owidth18.rle. In fact, every possible c/5 orthogonal width18 bilaterallysymmetric spaceship can be constructed using components from that collection. This was shown by Tim Coe using his Knightt program.AforAmpere wrote:Infinitely extensible C/5, I don't know if it is known

My WLS says it can't output to a file for some reason. I wanted it to output long partials, but it says it cannot create the file.

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
This works fine for me. Is WLS perhaps installed to a location which needs Administrator rights to modify files? Or perhaps the output file already exists and is open in another program?AforAmpere wrote:My WLS says it can't output to a file for some reason.

3c/10 w9 g is negative with zfinds. Not promising results either, as the longest partial was somewhere around length 300.

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
I just completed a search for asymmetric width11 spaceships at 2c/7 and the search completed with no results.
The longest partial reported is pretty long:
Total runtime was a little over two CPU days (but it completed overnight due to
multithreading).
I've also run width4 searches through p20, width5 searches through p15, width6
searches through p12, and width7 searches through p10, in four symmetries
(asymmetric, even, odd, and gutter), where the speed is k/p and gcd(k,p)=1 and
k<2*p, with no new results.

For width 11, 3c/8, even, odd, gutter, and asymmetric are all negative.
For width 11, 4c/9 even, odd, gutter, and asymmetric are all negative.
Longest partial among all of these is this 4c/9.
I believe both of these are just confirming earlier results from knight2.

w10 c1/8 asymmetric is negative, and surprisingly never found any partial
longer than 32! And it took 20 CPU days. w11 c1/8 is finding partials (so far)
of length 203 (this translates to 208/8 actual rows in a generation).
Here's one:

Owing to recent discoveries, has anyone tried looking for a (2,1)c/7 yet?

Useless, but (2,1)c/8 searched up to w9 with zfind 1.6, best partial:

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
When studying 3glider collision I noticed this TLparent glider collision:
I think it is known, however I have never seen it before. Maybe it can be used to construct a c/8speed spaceship (3c/24 or 6c/48 or higher periods). Any ideas? However, it can turn suitable c/8 rakes into a spaceship.
Maybe something weird knightshiplike could be engineered using 2G collisions which gives the G+TL:

x = 110, y = 55, rule = B3/S23

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread
rokicki, do you have the best partials from the 3c/8 searches on hand? I am compiling a chart of best partials for each speed and symmetry.
