Hello. This sudoku variant has zones of different shapes, separated by thicker borders (that can be red or black, for ... reasons).
Fill it with numbers in range 1 to 10, following all the given instructions.
If you like Sudoku variants, you will love this!
Cells inside red dashed rectangles have Calcudoku/KenKen clues.
Green cells in row J form a four digits number. Multiply it by 6; the result is given in the GREY cells in column 1, and the numbers have three digits in common. (Read the digits in the "normal" order).
FYI: yellow, red and blue zones may overlap in some areas, they have a different "mixed" color (like red + blue = violet). Green and grey cells don't belong to these zones though!
Yellow cells form a "PYRAMID"; the value of a cell is either the sum or the difference of the two cells under it (except the base of the pyramid itself). Difference in absolute value. Some numbers repeat inside the pyramid.
Due to the symmetry of the rule, you can consider C2 or G6 as the vertex point of the pyramid - as you prefer... If you take G6, in the rule change "under" with "on the left". (Similarly, you can take the cell G2 as the vertex, changing the rules accordingly).
Red cells form a "SUDOKU DIAGONAL"; all different symbols, 1 to 9.
Blue cells form an "IDENTICAL PENTOMINO"; it's repeated identical in the two occurrencies.
Rectangle A6 to FK: KROPKI sudoku, all marks including the external RED border given. Black mark = numbers are double, White mark = consecutive.
Rectangle A1 to D5: SKYSCRAPERS, black walls are transparent but you cannot see through the red walls.
Clues are referred to both sides of the enclosing rectangle, see the text.
Some cells can have arrows; "SEARCH TO 10" tips, you will find a 10 at a distance equal to the number written in that cell.
Lösungscode: Column 5 followed by row A

OH BOY The file is messed up with all those symbols so the arrow ... I guess it went out of nowhere! SORRY

Thank you for this very nice puzzle.
It drove me crazy till i recognized that there is an addational arrow in the new picture with the darker grey cells. The arrow in J1 was not in the picture with the light grey cells. I ignored the arrow and everything worked fine after i stepped in a few trapps.

It is really hard to recognize the grey cells. Could you please change this colour?

@sf2l please sorry! I am going to remove the anti knight rule altogether now ...
@Luigi hi! The pyramid rule is symmetrical, so you can take any of the three terminal points as the apex :)

Just to clarify the rules for yellow: The pyramid is laying on the side. Top of the pyramid is the field G2?

Please clarify the last sentence. There CAN or CAN'T be identical digits a knight's move apart in circled cells? And there CAN or CAN'T be identical digits in one circled cell and in another uncircled cell a knight's move apart?
