Actually, 23334M has an 11 cell form, as I reported here a while back.BlinkerSpawn wrote: ... Excluding that one, all shorter-lived methuselahs have a smaller bounding box (excl. Bunnies 9) and lower initial population (excl. 23334M), and in both exceptions the methuselahs are equal. ...

Nice! I remember there being a 13-cell predecessor of Lidka here, but that lasted for only 29101 generations.simeks wrote:My ongoing methuselah search found a 71 generation predecessor of Lidka:
It has a population of 13 cells in a 9-by-6 bounding box and lasts for 29126 generations.
Lidka has a population of 13 cells in a 15-by-9 bounding box and lasts for 29055 generation.

Yes, I've searched all n-by-2 patterns up to n=16 for all on-bit counts. The longest-lasting is this (23662 gens, 20 on-cells):BlinkerSpawn wrote:Have you tried looking for long-lasting 1xn or 2xn patterns?
