I had this idea last night while

I think it can be very, very, very useful for odd cubes (5x5x5 and 7x7x7). In fact, the bigger the cube, the more useful this is, I

The idea: Maximizing solved centers for odd cubes. How? Do exactly the same as you would for a 4x4x4: Look for the side with most number of solved centers,

(r l') (u' d) (f b') (r l'), its inverse, and u m2 e' m2 d'.

I dunno if I'm using conventional notation and I'm too lazy to figure out the conventional notation for these algs, so this is what I mean: Lower case udfbrl mean the slice AND all layers 'outside' it, lower case m and e mean ONLY the central slice. Okay I know there's definitely a better fingertrickish way to do them but I'll wait for somebody to discover that and tell me

If this isn't a new idea and is what everyone else is doing now, tell me, link me to a thread (or page for that matter), and I'll delete this.

Edit: Wait, I just discovered I'm not

*trying*to sleep (been rolling all over my bed for more than an hour but had this inexplicable one-night-insomnia thing for no reason whatsoever ). Disclaimer: I*think*it's a new idea because it just came from my head and I've never read about it anywhere else before, though to be honest, I haven't really read much literature on big cube BLD, yet. So yeah.I think it can be very, very, very useful for odd cubes (5x5x5 and 7x7x7). In fact, the bigger the cube, the more useful this is, I

*think*, it's just pure intuition without mathematical backing (I'll prove/disprove this later once I*know*nobody's done this before, so I don't waste my time ).The idea: Maximizing solved centers for odd cubes. How? Do exactly the same as you would for a 4x4x4: Look for the side with most number of solved centers,

*. Then solve the whole thing normally like you would on any even cube, and finally, the three most important algorithms that are so intuitive I don't think they deserve to be called algorithms:*__ignoring the 'center center'__(r l') (u' d) (f b') (r l'), its inverse, and u m2 e' m2 d'.

*author*ized to delete this thread though I'm the*author*, irony?
