And there are also neutral clues in some Castle Walls. Why not all?

@JonaS2010 I was not aware of this puzzle, thanks for sharing! I think I have seen this idea used elsewhere, although I cannot remember.

That was fun! I made a puzzle with the same rules a while ago: https://logic-masters.de/Raetselportal/Raetsel/zeigen.php?id=0002NX
Did you know about this or did you come up with it independently?
Also, @Feadoor: My Yajilin contest from last year has two hybrids which include the inside/outside clues.

@jessica6 it is not a strict "either or": clues may give both the number of blackened cells and the length of segments.

@Feadoor you’re probably right, but I’m not sure how to rename it... although in a lot of castle wall puzzles, the inside/outside constraints are only used trivially.

Calling this a Castle Wall hybrid feels funny to me, as I would say that the defining characteristic of a Castle Wall is the topological inside/outside the loop constraints. But maybe that's just me...

is this a strict "either or", that is, a clue which gives both the number of blackened cells AND length of segments in that direction is not allowed?
