I just did Medieval this morning; I'm going to attach it here as soon as I'm back home! :)

I also created a blank purple background though, so that it is possible to switch back to the original Medieval background with ease. That's something missing from the original graphic sets with background; although it's less dramatic when the regular background is pitch black - you can simply switch to a different main tileset. The magenta shade of the Medieval set is unique, however.

Sports, Highland, Polar, and Outdoor should also work. Shadow and Beach already have lots of no effect-objects that can be used to customise the background. I'm not sure about Space and Circus yet.

For the ONML graphic sets, I think namida already did a version of the Brick tileset with a complete brick wall as the background? I occasionally see that one popping up in LP videos.

I'd also recommend another background for the Dirt tileset, since the current Hunt the Nessy background is very limited in applicability ;) .
My packs so far:
Paralems, a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems, a more puzzly one, 100 levels
Lemmicks, a pack full of gimmicks, 170 levels - RECENTLY RELEASED

You don't need that actually.

In the editor simply choosing the medieval style as the main level theme activates the purple background.  After that you can lay a custom bg over it and/or choosing tiles from different tilesets.

The thing your custom bgs can have is a purple and a black bg version of them, so players can choose. Switching back to standard purple is simply made by deselecting the custom bg while having medieval as your main theme selected.

I am talking about the new editor here of course.

Which, you probably guessed, I am not using, which is why I created both ;) .

Here are my backgrounds for Medieval and Sports.

For Brick, I just went with namida's modification, a continuous wall:



For Medieval, I created a little landscape / scenery. This one is therefore more suitable for horizontal levels; actual L2 style levels with vertical scrolling should probably go with the classic purple background, since that's more in flavour for L2-style levels anyway :) .



The Sports background is a little more random and abstract. It's probably still more suitable for horizontal levels due to the way the elements are placed and partly cut off towards the top and bottom edges. Also, be aware that the regular background for Sports is quite a bright shade of blue / purple, so your levels will look considerably darker when applying this background to them.



I've also added all the objects collected in this thread thus far to the graphic sets for the old format, in case anyone wants to use them there :) . I know most people have moved to New Formats, so if no-one else is doing maintenance of the old graphic sets with these fancy new objects, I certainly will! :P

I reuploaded my "Strato's background mods" archive because the teleporters and receivers from the brick tileset were actually still missing trigger areas, i.e. they were not working. Oops, sorry!

As of now, they don't make any sound yet, but they work mechanic-wise.
