Very impressive design and fun puzzle. 🙂 Must’ve hit the expert time almost exactly, but I needed a good minute or two to realise that it wasn’t accepting my solution because I had shaded some cells below the grid to tick off the pentominoes. 😀

I really enjoyed the puzzle 🙂

I have one suggestion. This ruleset would be simpler and easier to think about if all of the numbers had the same meaning. As far as I can tell, all of the values can be converted to the other color’s system with one rule without changing the result of the puzzle. Having to “do the math” isn’t really a benefit to the puzzle.
