Rules for the Level Packs board - please read before posting
« on: September 22, 2016, 07:57:01 pm »
I won't make this too complicated. Just a few things to keep this board tidy. Note that if a topic doesn't comply with all of these, it may be because it was created (and moved from another board to this one) before this board existed, so don't worry too much about reporting older topics, though if you have any of your own, I encourage you to fix them up to comply.

1. The main board is for released packs only. Any in-development packs should go into the "In Development" subforum. A demo does not count as "released"; only the full game does. (However, it doesn't have to be finalized - if the full game is released, but you suspect an update might occur, that's okay.)

2. Don't prefix with [NeoLemmix] anymore because all packs on this board are NeoLemmix.

3. Strictly one topic per pack, per board (ie: one topic on the In Development board, and one topic for the release on the main board). For the purpose of this rule, releases of the same pack for two (or more) different engines still count as the same pack. Multiple packs in one topic is allowed, and encouraged in the case of a series or otherwise strongly-related packs once they've been out for a while.

4. When a release topic in the main forum is created, please close the development topic (if any) in the In Development subforum.

5. This subforum is not for mere ideas. If you aren't seriously working on a pack (or making a serious proposal that you genuinely expect will go somewhere, in the case of eg. community packs), don't create the topic here.


Now that this forum exists, any topics that are suitable for it that are made on the NeoLemmix or Other Projects boards will be moved here. I will leave it to the discretion of the moderators of the Lix and SuperLemmini forums how they want to act in relation to their projects' boards, though I do encourage pushing people towards this board.

For NeoLemmix packs, please include the following icons to indicate version compatibility:

Incompatible with older versions
:compat-new:
:compat-new:
Not compatible with V1.43n-F, V1.47n or V1.48 / V10.010.XXX. This is a single icon as a shortcut rather than typing them out individually.



V10.011.XXX and V10.12.XX

To do these, you use two smileys together - the first one states the version, and the second states the compatibility.

Versions (click to show/hide)

Compatibility (click to show/hide)

Examples (click to show/hide)






Note that V1.48 and V10.010.XXX are the same thing (just different numbering schemes, and versions within V1.48 / V10.010.XXX's life cycle have used both schemes), which is why they're grouped together on a single part of the icons.

Can I also add that if users must use dropbox to host their level pack content.

You'll get a link which looks like the one below most of the time (this is just an example, not an actual link)

https://www.dropbox.com/s/user/filename.zip?dl=0

Could you please change the end of the link from an zero to a one so it instead looks like this.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/user/filename.zip?dl=1

This is so the download link downloads easier and does not require someone to have a dropbox account to download your content, it means your content will be accessible to more Lemming forums users :)

I may have already edited some posts already to make this change for you if I have seen an instance of this.
Don't tell me solutions to levels which I have not solved.

Lemmings: Gotta Go Fast - My NEW (in development) Sonic tileset dedicated level pack :)
SEB Lems - My first level pack (175 levels)
