@Mark Sweep: Thanks! I'm really pleased you enjoyed solving it :-)
Those who want to teleport and observe the landscape, may also want to try Mark's wonderful Panorama sudoku (id=0005RT).

Great puzzle! Interestingly, I found the intial break-in relatively easy, but had more struggles mid-solve.

@Storm Thanks for trying it! I'm pleased you gave Lizzy01's puzzle a go. It needed more attention which the flood of puzzles didn't allow in the first place.

Wonderful logic! Really enjoyed the concept.
Also thanks for the link to Lizzy01's puzzle :-)

Beautiful logic throughout the solve, from start to finish!
Thanks for the very enjoyable skyscraper :-D
Thanks for giving it a go and for your feedback. :-)
I'm glad it was an entertaining solve.

@Lizzy01 Thanks for the kind feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed it after the tricky opening. :-)

Very nice! Of course I just had to try this puzzle, after that introduction. It turned out a bit harder than I expected, given the hint of it being inspired by my puzzle, but once I found the break-in I could see the similarities, and a few more through the solve.

Yesterday I found a 6x6 puzzle by CHalb in 2011 on the portal that uses the same multi-way skyscraper clues. If you want to try that one, it has id=00015K

Anyone who does try this puzzle, do also give Lizzy01's very unique Rook sudoku (id=0003XE) a try. It only needs a few more solves and ratings to get its well-deserved rating.

@Voyager Thanks for testing and retesting the sudoku. :-) I'm glad it was an interesting challenge. The puzzle difficulty is either 3 or 4 stars depending on whether you spot the break-in and middle logic, so thanks for reassuring me. Being optimistic, I'm hoping most successful solvers will eventually spot the logic.
@cdwg2000 I'm sorry that you did not spot the logical route. I will some time in the future (maybe in a week after people have given it a go) add a hidden comment of my intended solution path. Thinking about the minimum/maximum number of visible skyscrapers in rows/columns is important along with some geometry.
@marcmees I'm glad you enjoyed the skyscraper sudoku. :-)
First understanding the property of the normal grey skyscraper clues (which are all different) is the key to starting and solving this puzzle.

needed a lot of thought on the outside skyscraper hints before hitting the right buttons - pure logic-
wonderful puzzle. thanks

It turned out that I missed the logical path, and I finally made it through repeated attempts. It's really a big problem!

I checked my solution threefold - imho this puzzle has exactly one solution and a logical solving path (i.e. I needed no T+E). But it is "close-knit" - a VERY carefully counting of the possibilities of seen scyscrapers was necessary for me while solving - but that's OK. After all an interesting puzzle. The designated difficulty of 3 stars is imho also OK.

I hope the above example makes it clear what the green multi-way skyscraper clues are. Remember that the normal grey skyscraper clues have to be different.
