Does any one know algorithms for patterns on a megaminx, like flower or checkerboard

(dont tell me its in the wrong spot I know i didnt know where to put it)

HI,

I believe that noone cares much for making longish pattern algorithms on megaminx. Anything close to or over 100 turns becomes too cumbersome and tiring...

try to go to the www.cutex.com site.it has a megaminx algorithms,hope it helps.
If you want to help someone, at least give them the right url.

The correct URL is cutex.info

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think a perfect checkerboard pattern on the megaminx (using opposite colours for the pattern) is impossible.

whenever I want a checkboard on my megaminx, I have to solve it into that position.

It's possible on the 6-color megaminx.

This is correct. There are 30 edges, so that pattern would involve 15 2-cycles (because each edge is swapped with its opposite). This is a parity position and so you can't do it without disassembling the puzzle.

You can, however, do this:

(276 moves is not optimal of course)

It's possible on the 6-color megaminx.
Maybe, but a 6-color megaminx is arguably about as silly as a 3-color 3x3x3.

The puzzle or its opposite-side-checkerboard?

The puzzle itself. It's just a silly idea to put the opposite sides as the same color... seems like just a sticker mod of a megaminx to make it easier to solve.

I usually just solve the megaminx into the pattern,because most patterns take a large number of moves to make on the megaminx. many are over a hundred...

Basically, "No body cares bro, it's too long".

All I'm really interested in is an alg for "12 dots" without solving into it. Is there a way to make a puzzle simulator that simulates a megaminx and finds an "optimal" solution for the megaminx?

I have translated this pattern to the colour scheme on the X-Man Galaxy 2:

this is how you do a megamix patern
