Some large handmade puzzles  Authority KwonTom Obsessive Puzzles: 3329 Best Total: 9m 56s  Posted  2013.12.06 17:21:49 Over a year since my last batch, wow. I've been slacking. After creating a whole bunch of these, I must say, 1 is definitely the most underrated number. It's amazing what someone can do with a couple wellplaced 1's. Anyway, hope you enjoy these. I have no idea how hard the first five are, since it's been several months since I set them. The last two shouldn't be too hard. Consider this an early Christmas present.

I seem to have become infatuated with repeating patterns for these ones, it really takes the grunt work out of coming up with a pleasing arrangement of numbers. As always, I hope you all enjoy, let me know what you think of them.

This is where Puzzle 43 is supposed to go, but it turns out that KwonTomLoop can't handle 50x50 sized puzzles. Who knew? The link takes you to my slitherlink site, where you can select "50x50" in the size menu and play the puzzle that way. I'd post the loopy string for that one, but it stretches the forum out way too far, and adding line breaks makes it uncopypasteable.
I will only consider making a 100x100 puzzle if I receive kind words about the quality of my slitherlinks.  MondSemmel KwonTom Obsessive Puzzles: 6159 Best Total: 7m 47s  Posted  2015.01.25 11:41:31 Thank you for making these, Authority! I've been enjoying them for the past few days. Now I've solved them up to #42  I didn't yet have time for your 50x50 behemoth.
My times and comments: #36  14m22s #37  09m25s; I found this puzzle aesthetically pleasing. #38  06m49s #39  08m50s; A memorable puzzle, probably due to the unconventional arrangement #40  08m52s; I was initially slightly annoyed at the gazillion fiddly 1s, but liked how fast these were ultimately to solve #41  ms; This seemed initially easy, but then I made at least 2 mistakes, didn't manage to solve it after >16 min, and now I frankly don't want to try that puzzle any more =/ #42  7m34s; Fun, maybe my favorite.
As I said, I haven't tried #43 yet. (EDIT: I did eventually solve it, in ~37 min.)
Concerning your 100x100 puzzle: I prefer to solve puzzles in single sessions, and that's already pushing it in case of difficult 40x30 beasts. Plus a 100x100 puzzle probably wouldn't fit on any single screen, so there would be lots of annoying scrolling involved. So from my perspective, the upper size limit of enjoyable Slither Link puzzles is probably below 100x100. But by all means, feel free to try this! I'm just saying, if you want to make a huge puzzle, maybe Slither Link isn't the perfect medium for it? For instance, average Nonogram sizes are way bigger than average Slither Link sizes.
