Triangular Sudoku variant: TriDoku X

If you can have Diagonal Sudoku or Sudoku X puzzles, why not have a TriDoku X? Although it looks more like a TriDoku *, I decided to keep the “X” in the name. Perhaps it could be called a TriDoku Star? Whatever you call it, I think the additional rules are obvious: in addition to all the triangular nonets, outside and inner edges, hexagons etc., you now have 3 more lines of 9 cells that must follow the no-repeats rule. Those 3 lines are clearly indicated in the puzzle. And by the way: I switched the dark gray and light gray cells. I think the puzzle looks better this way. Let me know what you think.

    The first one was too easy, I thought. The second one a bit more difficult, but not really a challenge. All you have to pay attention to, is which cells have a touching point in common. Not much logic required. (I hope I don’t get shouted at this time, not by you Djape, don’t know who it was)

    You are right. The puzzle looks much better switching the dark gray and light gray cells.
