Yup, fairly sure I would have noticed that if it had gone by already. Nice discovery! What search were you doing?calcyman wrote:It's definitely new  congratulations!AforAmpere wrote:Is this known? It seems to be too simple not to be.
It combines nicely with extensible fireship technology:

A width 12 even symmetric search with ntzfind (rokicki's). I noticed a repeating component, and substituted a Copperhead in for another part and got the ship.dvgrn wrote:What search were you doing?

Congrats on the new c/10 pushalong!
What about naming it "Coppergut"? Because at it's front is the copperhead's main head and at the back it has the little "tail" of a block.

Other potential possibilities: "Cuttlefish" (reused from a suggestion for Copperhead itself), "Chalcocite" (the mineral form of Cu₂S, as this ship has two Copperheadlike components and one distinct one), or simply "78P10H1V0".AforAmpere wrote:does anyone have any other suggestions for a name?

I was reserving that name for a new velocity, and would have named the fireship it. Fits here well, though.Apple Bottom wrote:Cottonmouth  sticking with the "snakes starting on C" theme.AforAmpere wrote:That name seems fine, but before I say yes, does anyone have any other suggestions for a name?

Check the fourth and fifth rows from the bottom in Golly's Patterns/Life/Spaceships/c4orthogonal.rle. There are lots of known completions with the same first seven rows. Might be some more matches hiding elsewhere, I didn't look really carefully.googleplex wrote:c/4 ikpx results:needs a tailCode: Select all

If a tail can be found to stabilize the next seven rows, that might be a new ship. But this may be search space that's already been covered pretty well. Not being a c/4 spaceship search expert, I wouldn't really know.

(There's some potential for confusion there, granted, but I don't see it being a problem in practice, anymore than  say  the existence of two different barges.)

Extending this C/8 partial at w10 g was negative:
The search took around 131 CPU hours. This still does not mean a C/8 does not exist at w10 g, but it does show that it does not with this frontend. Longest partial:
I am currently running a C/8 search at w10 u, which will probably be much, much longer.

Thank you for continuing to maintain this collection and confirming the ships I posted are worth including. I'm happy for WM to be used as it is unambiguous and relates to me. If you used 3 letter initialisations then AJP would be appropriate, but it doesn't seem like there's any need for that and the two letter forms do format nicely.
