Ambox notice.png This template needs to be fixed so that some of the parameters are not reliant on output offset in order to appear.

This is an infobox template for conduits, e.g. Herschel conduits and converters. An example can be seen to the right. For general information about how to use pattern templates, see LifeWiki:Style guide/Pattern layout. To see a live example of this template in action, see F116 and BFx59H.

Special parameters

The following parameters are optional and should only be specified if their values are known.

  • type: "elementary", "composite" or "converter".
  • conduitfor: pattern moved (e.g. "Herschel").
  • convertsto: output pattern, if different from input pattern (e.g. "B-heptomino").
  • recovery: recovery time (in ticks, ignore FNG)
  • overclock: minimum overclock time (in ticks, ignore FNG)
  • spartan: whether the conduit is Spartan (yes/no).
    • Also use "yes" if the conduit can (easily) be made Spartan, e.g. by replacing a snake with an eater.
  • dependent: whether the conduit is a dependent conduit (yes/no).
  • edgeshooter: whether the conduit is an edge shooter (yes/no).
  • clearance: clearance, measured in hd (e.g. "27hd" for the Fx119 inserter); should only be passed for edge shooters (i.e. if edgeshooter=yes).

The following paramaters should only be specified if neither the input pattern nor the output pattern is a spaceship:

  • m: output orientation (one of R, L, B, F, Rx, Lx, Bx, Fx, T)
    • Rf, Lf, Bf and Ff are accepted as alternatives to Rx, Lx, Bx, Fx, but the latter, which are more in line with current terminology, are preferred.
    • T, B, F can be used when the input signal has a horizontal line of symmetry -- e.g., P (pi-heptomino) or Q (queen bee).
      • F* = F or Fx
      • B* = B or Bx
  • step: time taken to move the pattern (in ticks)
  • dx / dy: output offset.
    • This is measured in reference to the somewhat arbitrarily-defined "centers" of the input/output pattern:
