I've increased the scale of the setup diagram slightly to make viewing it somewhat easier (e.g. to see the board co-ordinates), without the diagram being longer than I can fully see on my laptop, that is without using the sidebar. Note that I've now used a proper 4D alternating checkering pattern for the 25 5x5 2D mini-boards. I could not manage to do so, in using the Diagram Designer, without increasing (i.e. doubling) the thickness of the spacing for the inner mini-board border margins, a consequence of there being an odd number of squares for the mini-board ranks or files, unlike for my earlier 4D chess variants, which used 16 4x4 2D mini-boards.
