I found a way to transport a Pi heptomino with pulsar debris.
There is also a farther version I found, taking advantage of the mini-pi at the front.

(Not sure if anyone found it yet)

I'm Sure somebody has already discovered this before, but I found this pattern of four beehives with tails added on to them. This turns into a two-step(is that what they're called?) pulsar. It creates a very interesting pattern while doing so.
The code is listed below.

I think the right one also takes advantage of the mini-pi, allowing it to escape, unlike if you just put it nearer with a 2 cell gap, which still transports it, but destroys it at the end.

Unfortunately, the left one destroys itself with its debris.

So I was messing around with R-Heptomino variations and found this strange heptomino(I'm calling it that because it fits Martian gardeners definition of it) . Can anybody tell me what it is called?

That's technically a polyplet but not a polyomino. However, it's a parent of the standard polyomino form of the B-heptomino.

I don't think there's any such thing as an R-heptomino, but you were probably looking at the R-pentomino (?).

Sorry, I'm Kind of new around here. Ill make sure to use the proper terms next time. by Heptomino I meant to say Methuselah, But that is incorrect as well.

Making a pentadecathlon out of two phi-sparks has been known since the beginning, as one of the phases of the pentadecathlon is literally two phi-sparks. Also, the fact that one glider-blinker collision makes a phi-spark has been known since the beginning, as all collisions of gliders into common objects had been explored very early on. Two blinkers plus two gliders to pentadecathlon is frequently the cheapest known way to edge-shoot a pentadecathlon, useful for adding a pentadecathlon to something else.

This seems like quite a lot of overkill - 16 gliders to produce a herschel plus a lot of junk, since you can get a clean herschel from only 3 gliders in many ways, or a herschel plus a block from 2 gliders in 3 ways.

How did you find it? It's pretty far from new. Generation 57 is identical to this beehive-puller Cordership from June 2005, by David Bell.

There's another variant where a block (instead of a beehive) is converted to a honeyfarm. It's used in Corder-lineship.rle in Golly's Spaceships collection, for example. The sparks allow a sideways glider stream to be turned into a forward one, which allows for high-period rakes and traveling data-storage loops or feedback loops. See here for a bigger list that includes these two patterns.

I added random junk into the 7-in-a-row cordership. It didn't disintegrate or turn into a puffer as it would do normally, so I thought it was interesting.

Wow, yeah, that doesn't happen too often -- a trailing component might fall off if it's damaged, but this seems like a more unlikely transformation. Makes it an extra-lucky Accidental (Re-)Discovery.

Do you still have the original pattern with the random junk? Maybe this would make another of those not really useful but maybe entertaining converters possible, where a Heisenburp reaction checks for the presence of a 7-in-a-row Cordership and converts it to a beehive-puller Cordership.

Wow, yeah, that doesn't happen too often -- a trailing component might fall off if it's damaged, but this seems like a more unlikely transformation. Makes it an extra-lucky Accidental (Re-)Discovery.

Do you still have the original pattern with the random junk? Maybe this would make another of those not really useful but maybe entertaining converters possible, where a Heisenburp reaction checks for the presence of a 7-in-a-row Cordership and converters it to a beehive-puller Cordership.
Nope, I used a rule called Energetic where there are photons that turn into live cells upon hitting a live cell. I was bombarding the ship with them, creating random junk inside of the ship.
