what next? 3 8x8x8's
I still think I should go back and actually get a successful 7x7x7 BLD multi first. Someday...You should try multi - 8BLD.
If I had done it right away (even the next day), yes, I could have mostly done this. However, I wouldn't be surprised if there would be a few places where I wasn't sure how I had solved the pieces. The most common case of this is when there are just 2 centers to swap - you actually do a 3-cycle with a piece that's already solved, and you can choose a different piece. Also, I actually did a couple of the wings commutators with different commutators from the ones I normally use, simply because I happened to think of the other one while I was solving (some cases have more than one solution, even optimized, and sometimes I go one-move-sub-optimal because it seems more convenient or is easier to think of).Regarding reconstructions: for BLD solves obviously the solver would be the ideal person to do this?
From the memo you can write out the full solve.
As we’re talking “Big Mike” here I wouldn’t be surprised if the still knows the memo
and I also think that it's a major accomplishment to have a big reconstruction done by Brest, so I'm hoping. And his format is so very good. Although I admit this would be outlandishly time consuming, and I'm not expecting anything - just hoping.Should be really easy to reconstruct because it's mostly commutators and slow TPS. Just time consuming.
I wish I had thought about calculating this right after the solve, but I'm afraid I didn't, so I don't know the exact count here. But I would guess a typical solve would run somewhere around 36 images for wings, 30 for X centers, 30 for + centers, 30 for obliques, plus 3 or 4 for corners, so around 130 images, or 260 pieces. This one felt like a pretty bad case, with not as many centers solved as usual. My recent 1:08:00 attempt had a lot of centers solved - I'm guessing it was less than 250 pieces.BTW: how many targets do you have to memo for a typical 8x8x8 solve? (assuming reorientation to solve some centers from the start)
To my knowledge I'm the only one silly enough to have tried. However, there is a comment on YouTube thatWell done Mike. You have incredible determination. Sorry for my ignorance, but has this been done before or is this a first?
I wonder if that means he's tried it? If he actually got one, I have no doubt he'd be faster than me, although I am still quite happy with my time.SheldonSpeedcuber said:Matyas Kuti is even more faster.
Actually, I started to try an 11x11x11 once. I gave up for several reasons:Out of curiosity Mike, what is the craziest/biggest BLD challenge you reckon you will ever attempt? Would you say that this is the hardest BLD solve you have made so far, or has there been something harder?
Yes, I like one big cube best too. Multis and relays are fun in their own way, but somehow a single big cube seems more elegant to me.I love the idea of practising memorization with only ONE big cube instead of solving many 3x3x3s. So you would only need ONE cube.
I use images for letter pairs, with three images (hence 6 letters) per location, in rooms of 9 locations each. It takes me 6 such rooms to memorize an 8x8x8. I put wings and X centers in the first three rooms, and obliques in the last 3 rooms. I just use an audio loop for the corners. I memorize in the following order:wow that's amazing!! When you memorise the 8x8x8, which memorisation method do you use? I mean like, letter pairs, numbers? Are you familiar with the Self Enhancing Master Memory Matrix?
