Equality Cages 119: Friendly, hostile, and neutral cages

(Eingestellt am 9. Januar 2024, 06:04 Uhr von gUBBLOR)

More Equality Cages, this time without much else. Special thanks to isajo4002 and cornish-john for their help and feedback while creating this. The previous and next puzzle in the series:
Equality Cages 118: Sum equally consecutive lines
Equality Cages 120: Parity?! It's called polarity!

All my series:
Equality Cages
EquaLite Cages
Shifter Lines
Shifter Dots

Normal Sudoku rules apply. Place the digits 1 through 9 in each empty cell. Digits must not repeat within the same row, column, or box.

Equality cages: Cages must have an equal number of low (1,2,3,4) and high (6,7,8,9) digits AND an equal number of even (2,4,6,8) and odd (1,3,7,9) digits. Equality cages can never contain 5. Digits may not repeat in a cage.

Friendly, hostile, and neutral:
- Green cages contain only friendly cells. Friendly cells have to match either their row, column, or box. I.e. if R1C6 was friendly, it would have to be 1, 6, or 2 (as it is in row 1, column 6, and box 2).
- Red cages contain only hostile cells. Hostile cells CAN NOT match their row, column or box. I.e. if R1C6 was hostile, it could never be 1, 6, or 2.
- Yellow cages are neutral, and exactly half the cells are friendly, and the other half are hostile.

I loved it. This is my first equality cage puzzle, at least that I can recall, I'm about to go down a serious rabbithole here.

Thank you.
