Minimum skills with maximum % Challenge
« on: August 28, 2009, 09:39:59 am »
This is the same as the Minimum Skills topic, except with one difference: You're now trying to save the maximum %, instead of just the requirement. This means for levels where 100% is possible, it's minimum skills to save 100%, and those where it isn't, the maximum known possible %.

Tricky: 2, 19, 26
Taxing: 3, 8-11, 21-22, 30
Mayhem: 3-4, 6, 11-13, 16, 20-21, 24, 27-28.
Crazy: 2, 4-7, 9, 16.
Wild: 4, 6-9, 16-17.
Wicked: 2-3, 5.
Havoc: 3-6, 9, 11-12, 14, 19.
Xmas '91: 4.
Xmas '92: 3-4.
Frost: 1, 5, 9-11, 13.
Hail: 1, 7-16
Flurry: 1, 8, 13, 15
Blitz: 2-4, 6, 8, 10-11, 14.

Please double-check your lists. At the very least, Taxing 22 and Mayhem 4 do not require 100%.

minimac94 clearly got his list from the Lemmings Encyclopedia which is based off of the Amiga version, where those 2 levels do require 100%.

Sorry, I didn't know Taxing 22 wasn't 100%. Mayhem 4 I was looking at the level solutions.

You can also copy over the numbers for any level where no known solution saves more than the required percentage. (Which, of course, includes 100% levels.) Also there are some levels where you don't have to use any extra skills to control the lemmings, and all the skills you use are for creating a path to the exit. This means you can copy over all of Tame, except level 7 where the 2-skill solution leaves some lemmings in the pit on the left.

Here are a couple of improvements to your list for Fun:

Fun 11: 3
Fun 17 (and Taxing 6): 4 [this is the 100% solution found for Taxing 6, so no replay attached]
Fun 25 and Mayhem 4: 4

I'm doing them in slightly random order, so this doesn't mean there aren't more for Fun.

[edit: silly me, Mayhem 4 can be done with 4 skills too. :-[ I've replaced my Fun 25 solution with the one from Mayhem 4.]

While not too impressive, here's Fun 29 100% with 14 skills.

Fun 15 and Tricky 3 can both be completed with 100% using 9 skills.

Fun 21: 3 skills
Fun 23: 5 skills
Fun 27 and Taxing 22: 5 skills

21 and 23 are pretty much what you'd expect, you've probably seen the various crowd control techniques dozens of times during, say, the "one worker lemming" challenge thread.  So unless you are in a very skeptical or curious mood for some reason, feel free to skip those replays. :P

I had similar ideas on both, but couldn't get them to work on either.

The Fun 27/Taxing 22 one, on the other hand, is plain impressive.

I did a few in Tricky.  The only one I think is replay worthy (and even this one isn't that great) is Tricky 12, 100% in 15 skills.

EDIT: And 13, done in 13 skills.
