Stunning visuals! Compared with Lemmings tilesets, some Lix tiles lack powerful 3D-lighting, yet you have crafted great images with the Lix tiles. Some levels even thrive on the flat design. Study in Scarlet shows masterful tile grouping.

From playing the NL version at Icho's, I know about the quality in the easier half of the pack. These levels are already challenging. I'm looking forward to explore the other levels.

We can include this in the D Lix test versions, or maintain it as a separate download for now. It's your choice.

I had a look at almost all of the levels from Planet and Sun. Each level, I basically played for 10 minutes, and if I didn't make good progress I'd move on to some other one. Exceptions are the last two of Sun and Planet 5, 6 and 10 (either because I'd seen them before or because they looked too daunting).

I think some levels I backrouted pretty badly.
But quite a few I found excellent and great fun. Of the ones I solved Hope and Despair is my favourite one.

I'd like to write a bit more about some levels, but it's pretty late now and I probably won't have much time to play or write anytime soon, so I just want to get out what I have so far. But either way I've had a lot of fun so far and even the ones I haven't solved yet are quite intriguing.

Thanks for all the replays. Unfortunately most of them are backroutes, a lot of them introduced by subtle changes in the game mechanics of Lix compared to NeoLemmix and by slight inaccuracies when copying the terrain. In detail:

Here is version 1.2 with further fixes for backroutes found by Ramon and IchoTolot. Moreover imploder counts were reduced when they could never be part of a solution.

NepsterLix 1.6 is now part of the main D Lix download. All levels are proven solvable. I'll continue to watch this thread for updates.

See the first post for version 1.7 of NepsterLix. If you are using a lix version of 0.7 or newer, you should update this pack.
Main changes:
- New level "Haunted Walls".
- Moved level "We all fly down" to Outtakes, because the new digger mechanics make the solution very fiddly.
- Moved "Construction Zone" and "Woodworms" a rank down, to make place for the new level.
- References to oriental and occult pieces point to the new piece names (thanks to Simon for fixing that).
- The three levels in the oriental style ("Don't feed the frogs!", "Travelling lix" and "Chinese Lix") are recreated  with the new pieces.
- Backroute fix to "Blockers forever".

I removed the download option of this pack from the first post, as Lix now ships with the latest version of the pack and the version in this thread wasn't up-to-date anyway.

I still greatly appreciate any feedback in this thread, though.
