X-6 May 22, (solved by Alfred - silmilar to mine, but using different UR at step 2)

// SS(2)bf9.fa4; -2a8
1. UR(17)ab.26::(2)c5=(2-1)a4=*(9)b2-bc1=(9-5)f1=c1-(5=6)c6 # -(56)c5
2. UR(68)gh.35::(8)g2=*(6)b3-(6=9)b1-(9=1)b2 # -1g2
// HW(13)h3/i17.(6)h8; -1h8
--------------------------------------
.75 + .75 + .25 + .25 = 2.0 *

X-7
path posted by cenoman (ditto sotir) - I find 11 AIC steps two much of a slog;
mild pattern chaining reduces this to 3 AIC + kraken.

1. aahs[(9=2)e2-f1=(72')gi1-(693')i137=*(3)i9-(3=9)g7-g2=de2] - (9=8)e3

(3)i5-d5=WW(78)d5,e9/g59-(7)e4=e9 # -8e9

the long loop extension on step 1 reaches STE immediately!
note: '--' indicates a derived (already mapped) non-native weak link.
