Build Your Own Lockout Lines
by Jakhob and wooferzfg

Normal Sudoku rules apply.

There are hidden lockout lines in the grid. Each pair of diamonds with the same letter must be connected by a line. Lines can only move orthogonally and cannot branch. Lines cannot cross themselves, other lines, or other diamonds.

Digits on a lockout line cannot be between or equal to the digits on the diamond endpoints. Digits on the endpoints must differ by at least 4.
