In Sukakuexplainer you have to input this directly in the JSON file. The GUI don't allows touching regions and don't color them.

A few diabolic and fiendish ones with diagonals:
Code: Select all

Here 2 examples found with a SE 4.2 rating, so human solvable? I doubt because they have a lot of generalized intersections.
Code: Select all
#1/X/B4,JSB
.........9...3...6..2.6.3.............9...4.............7.8.1..2...4...3.........
..........111..333.1.1133.3.11....33.21...43.22....44.2.2244.4.222..444..........

Code: Select all
#1/X/B4,JSB
.....2.........5...78...6..4.........................1..2...37...9.........6.....
..........111..333.1.1133.3.11....33.21...43.22....44.2.2244.4.222..444..........

Very nice puzzle layout:
The same layout, now up to Turbot-fish needed; point symmetric.
Code: Select all
#1/X/B4,JSB
..6.2.8..................5.....1....8..2.3..7....7.....5..................1.9.2..
..........111..333.1.1133.3.11....33.21...43.22....44.2.2244.4.222..444..........

And the same 4 Jigsaw-pieces, but no diagonals. SE about 6.3
Code: Select all
#1//B4,JSB
3..4..2...........4......8.7...1....6...9...3....2...6.8......1...........2..6..7
..........111..333.1.1133.3.11....33.21...43.22....44.2.2244.4.222..444..........

And this is a same layout, but with Ferz-Non-Consecutive constraint (diagonal adjacent cells are not consecutive) and point symmetric.
It starts with only 8 givens.
Code: Select all
#1/FNC/B4,JSB
.7.....86................2.............................3................25.....3.
..........111..333.1.1133.3.11....33.21...43.22....44.2.2244.4.222..444..........
and only Naked/Hidden Pairs (no Triples or Quads) and Pointing/Claiming is needed.
