General Discussion / Greetings!

Hello from the UK! I thought i'd just make a quick introductory post.

Like most (probably), my Lemmings interest stems back to the early 90's. My friend had an Acorn Archimedes and introduced me to Lemmings, as well as it being present on the school computers of the time, and from that i got the game for my Megadrive/Genesis. I was very obsessed with Lemmings as a child :D  The Archimedes port really does hit the nostalgia spot for me though, despite numerous flaws in how the gameplay worked, the music and general presentation is still incredible in my opinion. I have visited this site on and off over the years but never got around to being active until recently.

I am also a serial game modder and have been messing around with that kinda thing for years, with games such as C&C, various simracing games and Doom (i have a large and ever growing catalogue of Doom maps and am pretty active in that community), and of course Lemmings. I remember making some Lemmings levels many, many years ago, with a program called LemEdit (iirc), although they are long gone now. I also remember playing some classic addon level packs like MazuLems back then.

I recently discovered the NeoLemmix port and the impressive array of modding tools available for that and have been making a few levels. I'm impressed and relieved at how quick and easy it is to create things for Lemmings - this is coming from Doom mapping where it is easy to spend literally 100+ hours working on a sole map depending on how ambitious and large it is. It's great to see a port that is still actively supported by the community and has great editing and modding tools - i think these are such important assets to the longevity of any classic game.

IRL i'm an engineer and huge car nut, and have worked in motor racing on and off for a while now.

Anyway, seeya around!
Scotty
