    I think because inspection is limited, I don't have the time to fully check the building difficulty of every star. I think that despite this, building a star is still easy most of the time. I am able to even track my plan my first pair, perhaps 10%(?) of the time. I'm not really sure about this figure.

    Nothing beyond F2L colour is fixed for me either. I like to have the choice of which side to solve next. Usually this is a side that is adjacent to last pair of the current side. Even on the last 2 sides, I choose to build the one which "looks" better.

    I have done enough solves on each different colour that I have a very good idea of what pieces I need to track for F2L, regardless of the star colour.

    I just dusted off an old megaminx from my drawer and am trying to get good at it. Does anyone know what kind of megaminx I have? I also have an old Mefferts and Dayan minx but this one is best. I just down know the brand and if it's still considered any good. PB is about 2:39 after three days of practice.

    Looks like an old shengshou.
    It's still considered a good minx, but the new ss aurora is much better, as it comes pre-florian modded, a must for that cube.
    I think I got to about 2-ish with a ss before I got a sculpted galaxy.

    Does anyone know what the move count is for a standard megaminx solve?
    I counted the moves of a few solves a couple weeks ago and they were all about ~195. I don't think there were any over 200. Best was like 185.
    Westlund/Balint, order neutral/fixed order?
    If there aren't any stats on this, can some of you just count the moves as you would in a regular speedsolve, not trying to be extra efficient?
