It counts glide reflective puffers half the period

Why is this yl144 when the period is actually 288?

the "Constellation=producing switch engine" is commonly known as the glider producing switch engine.

This is the usual form of the Corderman Switch-Engine. It occurs naturally,BUT is extremely rare.Most efforts to stabilize the raw 8-bit engine produce this puffer. A 10-bit pattern was found that in over 200 generations becomes a Switch Engine and its stabilizer. The latter is reacted with about 100 gen. later. The smallest possible pattern that grows forever.

Somewhat rarer yet is the constellation=producing Switch Engine. Among the output is a glider heading in the same direction as the engine. It far outpaces it,and so is named by me,the Vanguard.

So they have pictures for the switch engines now too?

Really sorry. My bad. We really need a delete option over here.

Just for those who aren't sure, this is indeed the block-laying switch engine.
