Faster big cube algs?

Hey guys. I was thinking earlier today about the algs to solve parity on big cubes. These algs use slice moves, and can do things that are impossible on a 3x3, such at flipping a single edge.

I was wondering if this could be used to make OLL and PLL cases better. The advantage is you can use slice moves that are not available on the 3x3.
This might have been though up before, but I thought it'd be worth a try.

What do you think?

but slice moves take longer and are less finger-trickable.
Not if you are good at them...
I think it's possible, but these algs would be very hard to find. And slice moves are not so fast as normal OLL/PLL imo.
I intended this to make slow PLLs faster, like making N perms not suck.

Just made it up. Kinda weird XD
I'll try this...4x4 I'm guessing? And are the small letters slice moves or double layer turns?
and you think making an alg full of slices will be faster for an n perm?
and what about 5x5 and 7x7?
Yes.
Inteded for even layered cubes.

EWWWWWWWWWWWW

Equivalent to the 3x3 alg F2M2F2 U F2M2F2. (What, you didn't know that alg? :cool:)

Neat, but it's a lot longer than RB[PLLpar]B'R'.

Ha, wow. That is a pretty long alg. Here's another for this case: Rw2 D l U' R2 U l2 U' L2 U l U' M2 U' D Lw2


@ this topic: I don't think anything slice-based is going to end up faster than the standard 3x3 algs, especially for a fast turner who can do outer slice algs quickly.

My favourite part is "rblr" :D

Well, I derived it from a 4x4x4 alg. Point is, you can use double layer turns in some 3x3x3 algs if you wish.

I agree. Still gonna keep trying though :D
