color logic to get all but the green inside the "r" and then edge logic to solve that last green part
no guessing

you can use edge logic on the green 2 clues in r9 and r10
i will be very deliberate so you can tell me how many steps ahead this actually is (because i dont think it has ever actually been clarified on this site what constitutes a "step")
does a step include any dots/pixels that can be immediately placed as a direct result of placing another dot/pixel (or set of dots/pixels?)

lets say we place the green 2 in r9c5/6
we must dot r10c6
we must place a green in r10c5
(this is all one step is it not?)
the next 2 moves can be done in either order and still constitute one step as they simultaneously occur
we must place a green in r10c4 and
we must dot r9c4
this gives the error (2 moves ahead)

technically, should placing the dot in r9c4 after placing the green 2 clue in r9c5/6 actually count as part of the first step? if so then this edge logic is technically is only even just one move ahead

repeat similar logic in r10 on the green 2 clue
then repeat similar logic on the green 2 clue in r13

Found to be logically solvable by gator.
