3G table to (pseudo) long hook on trans-ship:

Code: Select all

```
x = 10, y = 17, rule = B3/S23
4b2o$4b2o2$4b4o$4bo2bo5$4b2o2b2o$3bobob2o$5bo3bo3$3o$2bo$bo!
```

3G table to long hook with tub:

Code: Select all

```
x = 10, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
5b2o$5b2o2$5b4o$5bo2bo5$4b2o$5b2ob2o$4bo2b2o$9bo$bo$b2o$obo!
```

Something similar is probably known, but a properly-placed domino spark at t=11 would allow a 6G table to long hook weld melusine:

Code: Select all

```
x = 8, y = 8, rule = B3/S23
4b2o$4b2o2$4b4o$3bo3bo$3bob2o$o$ob2ob2o!
```

Similarly with these two 3G table to long hook with beehive components, I doubt they reduce anything by themselves (except maybe by having higher clearance), but they allow a 5G table to long hook siamese eater head and a 6G table to long hook weld loop. (The two original components are mostly interchangeable aside from minor clearance differences.) [EDIT: the second and fourth below are actually known, although they were quite hard to find when I went looking.]

Code: Select all

EDIT: 3 gliders remove a feather, if such ever proves necessary:

Code: Select all

```
x = 8, y = 16, rule = B3/S23

EDIT 2: A couple less useful snake with feather(quetzal? I know the name's already used for something else)-to-X converters:

Code: Select all

```
x = 12, y = 14, rule = B3/S23
