Re: Execution of Old Guns by Variable-Speed Firing Squad

p25 gun reduced from 26x21 (546-cell BB) to 24x22 (528-cell BB), ignoring the BB-glitched Catagolue gun:

Code: Select all

``````x = 22, y = 24, rule = B3/S23
15b2o\$15bo\$12bo4bo2b2o\$12b5obo2bo\$10b2o4bobobo\$9bo2b4o2bob2o\$6bo2b3o2b

7bo\$o2b3o4bob3o\$2o3\$13bo\$14bo\$12b3o!``````
This doesn't reduce p50 (37x22 is 814, 39x21 is 819), but it does reduce p75: (40x22 is 880, 42x21 is 882)

Code: Select all

``````x = 40, y = 22, rule = B3/S23

Edit: Turns out I contradicted myself with the p50 gun; it does indeed get reduced to 36x22 with the help of a modified glider filter:

Code: Select all

``````x = 36, y = 22, rule = B3/S23

Edit 2: p100 gun reduced to 37x37; is there any good p5 toad replacement using the empty space available for a theoretical 37x32 build?

This isn't a record, but it's period 1875. The leftmost output outputs 3 gliders, at glider numbers #0, 11, and 44 with a cycle length of 75.

Re: Execution of Old Guns by Variable-Speed Firing Squad

Smaller p51-based p17 gun

Probably room for improvement here (maybe Jormungant's herschel factory can be made to work)

Notice that the one instance of this new p59 reflector is supported by a pre-Herschel rather than a glider. There might be a slightly smaller solution using the same ideas. Keep in mind that several different timings and lanes can be used for the input glider of the new p59 reflector. Here are just two examples to give the idea:

Could there be a way to support the new reflector with one of the small p59 oscillators to make a gun directly? I couldn't find a solution.

The p4 sparker for the 180-degree 22hd reflector seems to be optimized for southwest clearance, but in this case we need clearance in the north. A simple replacement saves two rows at the top.

The guns in my recent two posts in this thread may be called "LCM guns", analogous to the spark-coupled "LCM oscillators". See how they tend to be compact, sometimes even more so compared with period-multiplied small guns? This is not unprecedented: the good old period-690 glider gun is an early example of an LCM gun. More related ideas:
• For p30n, David Bell invented an elegant mechanism in 1995 (per this post) that only gives an output glider for exact one phase-aligned input. The modern version of this mechanism is shown below. Examples: gun_1290 (=lcm(30,43)), gun_1560 (=lcm(30,104)), gun_2730 (=lcm(30,91)).

As for now, I am looking for a collection of small edgy banana sparkers that produces 3o2\$o! or 3o2\$b2o!, and another collection of small edgy duoplet or domino sparkers.
