Nothing too exciting, but a spartan version of the *WSS -> G may be possible along these lines:

Code: Select all

Pi-to-glider and two variants of a pi-to-pi:

Code: Select all

x = 103, y = 73, rule = LifeHistory
41.2A$41.2A3$63.2A$64.A$63.A$64.3A$66.A3$47.3C$47.C.C$47.C.C$39.A.2A$
37.3A.2A$36.A$37.3A.2A14.2A$39.A.A15.2A$39.A.A$40.A24$19.A$16.A2.3A$
16.3A3.A73.A$19.3A72.3A$14.4A.A73.A$14.A2.2A74.2A5$27.3D70.3D$29.D72.
D$27.3D70.3D7$11.3C70.3C$11.C.C70.C.C$11.C.C70.C.C$3.A.2A69.A.2A$.3A.
2A67.3A.2A$A72.A$.3A.2A14.2A51.3A.2A14.2A$3.A.A15.2A53.A.A15.2A$3.A.A
70.A.A$4.A72.A!
I currently don't know of any way to get a signal in, but HF95P comes closest to working, interfering with the eater 2 further back on both sides.

EDIT: And here's a pi-to-R:

Code: Select all

x = 27, y = 21, rule = LifeHistory
10.2A$10.A5.2A$11.3A.A.A5.2A$13.A.A6.A.A$14.2A6.A$21.2A$20.A$20.3A$
23.A$22.2A2$2A$2A2$15.3C$15.C.C$10.D4.C.C5.2A$10.3D10.A.A$11.D13.A$
15.2D8.2A$15.2D!
This might end up being useful if the indicated block (beehive, pond, etc.) could be restored at the indicated place, by catalyzing the R in some way. (The block at left just deletes a beehive, which could also be used to interact with the R.)

Has anybody noticed that this old discovery can be used as a G18 to pi?

Code: Select all

x = 40, y = 25, rule = B3/S23

Hmm, there's some interesting stuff here. It will take some work to figure out if the various potential outputs can really connect to anything.

The tub-with-tail looks like it can be replaced by a regular fishhook eater in almost all cases. Suppressing the Herschel's first natural block with an eater3 looks like it does something significantly different. I've added the two standard eater positions below (from F117 and Fx77) for comparison:

Several of the reactions in the larger stamp collection look familiar, but either my memory isn't what it used to be or there are a lot more elementary conduits to memorize nowadays. Probably both.

The third one is the beginning of F117, and I've posted the first and fourth ones here before:

@dvgrn If you use the fishhook eater, a boat suddenly pops out and it's not easy to clean (pretty weird). Also that eater3 is not just doing trivial block eating... At least Ihaven't found any 1-catalyst that could replace the eater3.

Only if you use the wrong fishhook eater, though. Check the F117 and Fx77 comparison above -- the pattern on the left remains identical with the F117's active reaction below it, until the interaction with the next catalyst.

To put it another way, here's the no-boat version I was describing on the left, compared with the boat you described, on the right:

Code: Select all

x = 75, y = 17, rule = LifeHistory
3.2A49.A$4.A49.3A$4.A.A50.A$5.2A49.2A5$23.2A48.2A$23.2A48.2A$5.A49.A$

26.2A20.2A$2A48.2A!
Eater in F117 position on the left, and Fx77 position on the right. The difference is subtle, but information about the position of the eater is communicated through the active reaction at near lightspeed. As you say, it's a weird effect, and it's tripped me up more times than I really want to admit...!

Yes, didn't mean to imply that the Fx77-position eater was doing the same thing as the eater3 -- it's significantly different -- just that it's generally worth checking any catalyst placed in the vicinity of the first natural block, against both of those eater placements, to make sure that there's no equivalence.

@dvgrn EEK... My bad :oops: Didn't know there were two of the eaters and read your sentence wrong about the eater3. Oops...

Well, I should probably have been less vague about the eater3. And those two eaters are really tricky.

I think my worst confusion was one time when I got the wrong eater on an L156 somehow. Have a look: the next two catalysts still seem to work fine, and it's only after that point that the wrong eater placement has an effect -- a mysterious blow-up almost twenty cells away from the problem:

Sorry, didn't notice this question a few days ago -- and I'm not sure I understand it now. This would be part of a memory loop circuit holding a single-lane construction recipe? Maybe with a recovery time less than 90?

For there to be parity issues, it seems like the leading glider would have to be produced by some kind of gun -- but a p120 gun would be too slow, and any faster gun would limit the relative timings of gliders in the single-lane recipe, which I _think_ would more than erase any gains from a faster circuit. So I'm probably guessing wrong and you're not thinking about a gun.

If you're planning to generate tandem gliders to populate a recipe memory loop, then maybe it makes sense to start at the transmission side instead of the receiving side. If a tandem-glider output can be found, in the H-to-Gn stamp collection or elsewhere, that has a low recovery time and makes a likely looking active reaction out of the blinker, then it might make sense to run a search based on that.

In that situation there wouldn't be any parity issues, because the tandem gliders would have a fixed relative position -- the first glider makes the blinker and the second one operates on it and gets back to stable again. Pretend example:

This H-to-Gn definitely doesn't work, but it has a nice recovery time (80) and there wouldn't be any parity issues if it did work -- the next tandem glider could have even or odd relative timing.

I suppose you'd have parity problems if you applied the gliders in the other order -- first one hits blinker and makes an output signal, second one restores the blinker. That could work if the tandem gliders were farther apart. But in that case is it likely that the tandem glider transmitter would recover in less than 90 ticks?

If the transmitter were big and complicated and included an edge shooter for the second glider, it could easily recover in say 78 ticks... but that would be a pain to use in self-constructing circuitry, for sure, and then we still have the parity problem, to say nothing of the chirality problem.

(Chirality problem = only one of the two mirror-image orientations of the tandem-glider transmitter will work. By Murphy's Law, usually this turns out to be a horrible layout headache.)

I think we'll just have to re-run toolkit searches for each actual transceiver we find, to see if there's a universal set of one-lane construction elbow operations. It's certainly plausible that if we could handle signals spaced 60+2N ticks apart, the faster recovery time would make up for the parity problem. I kind of doubt that we'd do more than barely break even in that case, but we're going to have to put together a dedicated search program to find out for sure.

We need the search program anyway, to see how far simeks' toolkit can be extended! More elbow ops are certainly out there waiting, and probably more elbow types as well.

This is the same mechanism used in 47P72, but the blockers are replaced with stable objects that take longer to recover. It also has a smaller bounding box than the blocker version.

Finally, a pond pushing reaction (plus annoying blinker):
