p71 honey farm hassler
p71 honey farm hassler is a period-71 oscillator found by Mitchell Riley and reduced to its current form by iNoMed on September 1, 2022. In terms of its minimum population of 112 cells, it is the smallest known oscillator of this period; it is also the only known oscillator of this period that does not rely on glider loops or Herschel track technology. It consists of two honey farms being hassled by six eater 1s and two copies of a drifter variant of eater 3. The original form before iNoMed's reduction used actual eater 3s.
