Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
I was working on something along the same lines, but without the eaters  seems like those would get in the way of reconstruction, or at least slow down the repeat time since a lot of gliders would have to cross the fireship lane.toroidalet wrote:Here's a start...gameoflifemaniac wrote: But how about a stable fireshiptocopperhead?
To continue: restore the block on table and leave an excess glider to hit the ship. Shouldn't be too hard.
With a tenminute investigation I could only come up with a fourobject proof of concept:

Theoretically a bait object with only one protruding cell will also interact with the fireship's sparks, slightly later, but everything I tried destroyed the fireship pretty quickly  at least with no further catalysts added.
Is there a synthesis that would allow "firing up" a copperhead after it's already in motion? That would require a much uglier converter, though, since I don't think there are any Heisenburp options available for a plain copperhead. (?)
Even if a stable Heisenburptype reaction could be found, it would probably be just as easy to use a nice simple copperheadtoglider converter, and then wire up a glidertofireship. There's also a fireshiptoglider, but I think for that case the Heisenburp approach will probably be a little more reasonable than rebuilding an entire copperhead.

This produces a sideways HWSS from a block on ship with catalyzing tub (unfortunately, the tub, which becomes a boat, later gets in the way of the fireship, but only just):

The problem with that is that the contraption would have to somehow detect the copperhead and then fire the glider on precisely the correct generation.towerator wrote:A very simple reactionn for a simple fireship to copperhead:Fireship + glider = copperhead + blinkerCode: Select all

AbhpzTa's idea is technically possible to hook up to a slow salvo generator although there's far faster methods available given one output glider.
Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
Shouldn't it be possible to build a detector that emits a glider that is split and reflected to rebuild the first detector and to do the fireship+glider thing later on? The speed is only c/10, so catching up with a reflector is trivial, as far as I can tell. Rebuilding the "detector" constellation is trivial and can be done within a finite number of generations  of course, repeat time may or may not be high, but it is possible to do so.BlinkerSpawn wrote: The problem with that is that the contraption would have to somehow detect the copperhead and then fire the glider on precisely the correct generation.

Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
What if we just turn the fireship into a glider somehow and then split that into a synchronized glider synthesis and then synthesize a copperhead? No I'm not stupid, I'm just saying.

That's what this proofofconcept pattern was. The question is if it can be done with fewer still lifes, or some constellation that's easier to reconstruct.BlinkerSpawn wrote:Is it possible to do a nondestructive read on a fireship with still lifes?

Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
Well, here's a potential starting bait that should serve as an improvement over the previously shared ones, seeing that it only needs a biblock and a ship to be reconstructed:
The ship itself is only there to convert a rapidly formed blinker into a plume that lends itself more readily to forming a workable output.

Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
That's certainly workable, with a slowsalvo reconstruction if nothing else. It would be nice if the output glider didn't have to cross the fireship lane, but actually that has advantages for rebuilding a biblock in that orientation, using two synchronized gliders not a slow salvo.Rhombic wrote:Clean:Code: Select all

People seem to be missing the clean conversion of glider_rider's that gameoflifemaniac pointed out at the top of this page, that started this whole conversation. Yes, once we have an output signal, timing that glider will be trivial. Rebuilding the bait is the painful part, so it's worth investing some time making sure that the bait is really minimal.Rhombic wrote:Something like that with a reflector&splitter and then this can be timed.towerator wrote:A very simple reaction for a simple fireship to copperhead:Fireship + glider = copperhead + blinkerCode: Select all

Really that's about as good a bait as we can reasonably hope for. Six gliders could reconstitute it  or five synchronized gliders plus a cleanup, if the catalyst block is taken out (it barely gets in the way of the cheap eater synthesis).Extrementhusiast wrote:This one isn't too bad, I guess...

The fastest possible repeat time would no doubt involve some kind of horrible multistage recovery system. Onetime turners and splitters would be arranged to reconstruct the bait as quickly as possible, while at the same time a huge and awkward pile of circuitry is started up, to rebuild the various turners and splitters.
... Ugh. It still won't be either fast or elegant. So at the moment I'm not tempted to try and minimize the repeat time. Maybe minimize the Heisenburp detector bounding box, and not worry about repeat time. How often do you really see a closepacked stream of fireships going by, anyway?

Re: is this c/10 spaceship known?
Yes, as Blinkerspawn pointed out, that's the reaction from three posts up that allows a rebuild with a couple of pairs of synchronized gliders, plus a cleanup. The block is a good trick but as far as I could see, it ends up just getting in the way and doesn't save anything on the total complexity.Ethanagor wrote:Is this useful?
Edit 2: adding one block to the first pattern can eliminate the bee hive for free...
The p30 glider gun testing for the presence of a block is a good idea, but it limits the timing of the fireships that can go past:Ethanagor wrote:Edit: Here's a proofofconcept for if anyone can find a cheaper blockproducing reaction...
