ECE - New 3x3 Solving Method

ECE is a fascinating method. I was messing around with it today and my first solve was a 37STM solution! Are there any algorithms for EO or does a list need yet to be made? Thanks for the SLS sheet @Silky, I was wondering where I would find WV algorithms that have only regard for CO. They look promising, along with the entire method. I have my doubts on if this method has world-class potential because L8E (however you want to call it) seems like a very unergonomic step. Especially EZD. Still a really cool method and I'll definitely be exploring it some more. I might even make it my main method.

One other question I had is if L5CP has been considered yet? It would just take the best algs from TTLL to solve the DFR and U layer corners. It certainly seems like a viable trick set.

Here's a list for EO => I'm working on an algset that will simultaneously orient and separate edges into layers to finish with EZD. Also am going to EZD+1 which allows one edge to be separated into the incorrect layer.

These algs could still be improved. All of them except for one preserve EO so we could gen to see if there are better ones that do no preserve it. I used Batch Solver so I could still use cubexplorer to find some better ones. I also made some GLS algs as well. I want to work on a megadocx for SSC/ECE which will include everything. Check this doc for OL5C, EZD, CTL, and CP => https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...cwI_Az3NDX72IxNvh1ZcgBNY1Y/edit#gid=299705860. OL5C is an alternative to SLS and is rather elegant imo. SLS is easier but OL5C is more efficient in my experience..

I proposed a bit ago to use TTLL for the Broken Variant and a L6CP variant. If you follow my progression thread I outline it a bit more there. I do plan to gen out 6CP for SSC at some point but they have already been developed for Mehta if you want to check that out.
