Well, it took long enough, but I'm happy to say that I've finished my Half-and-Half cube.

Here are the new pictures:

Reminds me a little bit on the top of a skyscraper. If you build a couple of them with different height and stickers, you could remodel NY ;)

Ehh... I'm not feeling like anyone cares to much about my puzzles because (and don't take this the wrong way) people like Drewseph (and I mean this in a non-derogatory way) are making puzzles with the same mechanism (but who am I to speak :lol:) just doing things like rounding them off and stuff. Its not that spectacular to me, but what do I know! Again Drewseph, I apologize to you or anyone else who is somehow offended by this.

And please save your rants about this for someone who cares :wink:

Great Job! I wish you had two or three of them stacked on top of each other. Before it was stickered it reminded me a little of Bullet Bill from Super Mario...

Explain to me exactly how building a Teraminx is simply "rounding things off". ;)

I believe Drew was trying to achieve that specific shape, it wasn't like he was trying to get extra mileage out of the puzzle he already had, rather he had a shape in mind and wanted to see it come to life. Whatever the case may be I must say your statement was quite ironic considering the 3x3 mod.

All that aside, nice work and it is good seeing you on again. Its been an impressive year for the master builders, let them have their moment and don't let it get you jaded.

hey man you have done alot of mods and have alot of youtube subscribers who are wondering whats next. you have more mods completed than most people. we do care. we do look up to you. dont quit modding and making videos cause a few people have negative comments. amen.

BTW the capsule cube is not that creative cause its mostly just stuff we've all done with truncated 3x3. not that its not cool. just that people have a liking to regular polyhedra and the current trend is pillowing or Reuleaux on all the same old regular polyhedra. not saying you have to be like them but you can see why we say things like that. house cube was cool cause its a house. you could have made more money on that than a capsule cube. anyway keep modding. the world is watching.

I'll keep modding don't worry about that :)
It's just I have alot of other stuff to do, especially school. It may take longer for me to make puzzles, but I'll try to keep coming up with ideas. I'm going to have to learn how to do 3D modeling so I can make some new mechanisms I've designed.

It's creative because he came up with it, and it's never been done before. That in itself is good enough to make them. You have a right to your opinion, but it's not very nice to tell someone their work isn't creative.

The build is very clean. I see no flaws in the work. That in itself makes this a great puzzle.

You said this was your final addition to the capsule cube collection? What were the other pieces to this collection? :)
