The universe is expanding. Sudokus are a part of the universe and therefore do not escape to this trend.
Irregular scattered sudokurve
Each row and region must contain the digits from 1 to 9. Unlike a standard sudoku, the rows here sometimes bend along the indicated curves. Each row contains exactly 9 cells. Moreover, the nine shaded cells must also contain each of the digits from 1 to 9.
Lösungscode: Bent row passing through the central cell, followed by bent column passing through the central cell.

This problem doesn't appear in stage 2, it's clearer for the second puzzle of this series, fortunately ;)

Oh Yes, I do not know why I did not realize it this time, although having solved the second stage before. Thank you for this series in advance!

I'm sorry if the rule is not clear.
The fact is: rows and columns don't cross the empty spaces. They cross only if there is a grey line (bent or not) connecting cells. If you look at the 4 first rows in the left of the puzzle, you see that only rows 3 and 4 are connected to rows 3 and 4 of the right part of the puzzle. rows 1 and 2 are connected with lower rows on the left. The same for columns 1 and 2.
When designing the puzzle, I thought there might be confusion but I don't find a good way to show that rows and columns who are not connected can contain repeated digits.
Hope it is clearer, now.

Sorry, ich verstehe die Anweisung anscheinend nicht.
Mich irritieren die beiden 1en in der zweiten Zeile/1. Spalte. Anscheinend wird hier nach einer bestimmten Regel an bestimmten Orten abgebogen.
Könnte mir jemand bei diesem Rätsel auf die Sprünge helfen?
