Drat; nice to find it arising naturally from soup, though.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
The first of those patterns is called a blocklaying switch engine (or a type1 switch engine).
The second is a gliderproducing switch engine (or a type2 switch engine).

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
Thank you! I need to give myself a course in terminology from LifeWiki just so I can look for things....
Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
Hello community!
I´m new here, Life gained my interrest about a year ago already though...
(i hope my terms are correct, sorry for the bad english)
I was just playing with some rules, and in the B378/S23 I found that a randomly drawn soup emerged a quite nice puffer around gen 42.000 or so.
not only this, somewhen around gen 86.000 a even more complex rake evolves right above, which serves as a eater for the first puffer...
what also confuses me is: besides those complex things it only emerges normal gliders, no spaceships since now (even though they exist in that rule)
now i know that the puffer itself may be known, but i ask myself if there is something unusual about a soup emerging more complex struktures than gliders and small ships...
i newer saw something like this randomly emerging from a soup. especially not from conway...
is it only because of the additional Births of the rule?
are there any reference on such soups, that cause complex ships to emerge (even in conways rule)?
thank you for explaining!

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
It all depends on the rule. In the original GoL, natural puffers are practically nonexistant. In B3/S2378, infinite growth is common but there are no "organized" puffers than I am aware of in this rule. In B36/S235, puffers occur in practically every soup that has infinite growth.b_flat wrote: i newer saw something like this randomly emerging from a soup.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
There are two natural puffers, namely the blocklaying and gliderproducing switch engines. No other puffers have been discovered from random initial conditions.In the original GoL, natural puffers are practically nonexist[e]nt.
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the monoclinic!
Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
well, i see that B36/235 also has puffers, but it seem so me that they are a lot less complex that the one i found...
(by complex i mean the puffer exists with much fewer cells involved)
can you reproduce a puffer or similar object with such a complexity in a different soup/rule?
or if not, can you say, that one specific rule is the most "pufferaffine"?
sorry but i cannot find any information about this in the wiki.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
@above: In life, a switch engine can start from only 10 cells. One way for this to happen is
But yes, some rules definitely have more natural puffers. As for how that could be measured, I'm not sure.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
Hey, I'm new here. I'm not sure if this would be considered rare or interesting, but anyway... I was playing around with 8cell patterns and an unusual still life popped up in generation 2276 and survived for a little over two hundred generations. It pops up at the bottom  the Life Wiki says it's called a Big S.
Code: Select all
x = 20, y = 5, rule = B3/S23

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
I don't know if the Big S is considered rare or not. In the Online Soup Search it's in 26th place among still lives and oscillators.
Here is a seven cell predescessor:
Here is an eight cell pattern in which a Big S survives forever:

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
@davidspencer: the big S isn't that rare, but what is much more impressive is that you have found an 8 cell pattern which lasts for 5361 generations.

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
Mats  nice patterns, the seven cell one is pretty cool!
137ben  A longlasting pattern was actually my initial goal. I ran into other (but not many) patterns which lasted longer, but I only saved one, stabilizing at either 6515 or 6422 depending on how you look at it. The final bit of chaos turns into a glider at 6422, which later hits a block and both disappear at 6515. I wonder if anyone has tried all the possibilities with the rpentomino interacting with a blinker/block?
EDIT: I just found one that makes it to 9432.

It consists of a prehoney farm, two blinkers, a block, a beehive, a shape on the top that resembles a beehive right next to a theta spark, a shape on the left that generates a spark and an unimportant loaf, another shape that highly resembles a bookend, and a large shape down below that I do not know what the heck it is.Code: Select all

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
This is the general synthesis sequence: Start with a block on cap. Then, add a domino spark next to the end of the cap and off to the side (to turn the domino on top into an Stetromino), and at about the same time, delete the block with a glider. (Even though it is simultaneous, it shouldn't be too hard to do.) Now here comes the hard part. Place the following reaction at the appropriate location:Lewis wrote:P2 'Griddle on Beehive':Code: Select all

Re: Thread For Your Accidental Discoveries
Here's the recipe I have for making that class of object. It's ugly, not obvious, and I don't have a record of who came up with either part.
Another construction that converts a static inductor into the active oscillating part would be useful, too.
(Converting the block in place to another object is an exercise for the student...)
Then there's this, by Dean Hickerson, which might help you, too.
And for your amusement, here's something unrelated:
