Sorry, I wasn't very precise about what I meant. I wasn't <br> suggesting any<br> changes regarding the invisible face, but rather the hyperstickers on <br> the<br> outside 'edges' of all the visible faces.<br>
The reason being that when you are trying to place the inside <br> cubelets<br> of each face, part of the problem is actually verifying what colour <br> they<br> are, since they are obscured by the outer hyperstickers. I found <br> myself<br> wiggling it round a lot to see between the gaps.<br>
If you could make the outside hyperstickers transparent (e.g. <br> wireframe,<br> so you could still tell they were there) this would make the job <br> easier,<br> since the inside cubelets would then be clearly visible. But then <br> perhaps<br> I'm just lazy &#58;)<br>
This only applies to the 4&#94;4 and 5&#94;4 since they have substantial <br> inner<br> bits (2x2x2, 3x3x3) that need arranging.


P.S. (OFF-TOPIC) I recently moved to Paris and am having trouble
finding a
job in software testing/development. If anyone has useful
I’d be very grateful. Thanks.
