The 44P5H2V0 allows for both standard options -- placing an object with or without destruction of the spaceship:

Besides the blinker-puffer seed, I guess there's also a bit of work to do to complete a toolkit for a 35-degree slow^2 elbow. For maximum speed, the construction recipe will have to be made of *WSSes that don't overlap the blinker puffer or its burning fuse; analogous to the c/4 diagonal wickstretcher, the blinker-puffer seed will be built and triggered first, then the construction recipe will be sent, and finally the fuse will be lit at the right time to stop the blinker puffer at the target location.

However, I think it's not necessary to build a whole new slmake-ish database to construct arbitrary objects by splitting and moving a target block directly with *WSSes. Instead we can find a minimal set of *WSS recipes that produce a universal set of block moves and glider outputs. This will be the slow^2 elbow, and it will produce a standard glider slow salvo that will do the actual construction.

This will be inefficient, but not terribly so. For sufficiently fast Speed Orthogonoids the cost of the construction recipe won't make a significant difference, because we'll send the recipe and then wait around a long time to light the fuse anyway.

A good starting point would be a standard 13-glider construction for the fuse-stoppable version of a blinker puffer 1, which looks like this:

Code: Select all

```
x = 39, y = 53, rule = B3/S23

```

Anyone want to contribute a move in the Optimization Game here, with a reasonable single-digit number of synchronized gliders?

**EDIT:**There's actually a very nice two-object edgy seed for an HWSS in Mark Niemiec's database, but it doesn't seem to be quite compatible with the recipe that adds the central unstable xWSS, so something will have to get reworked somewhere:
