This pack has been in development since shortly after the completion of SEB Lems and I've been mentioning this pack time and time again in the IRC so I thought it was time to formally announce it now that I have a name for the pack which I'm happy with.

So the gimmick in this pack is I will only be using SEGA themed or Sonic themed tilesets so the rule is I only use the following tilesets

Scrap Brain, Star Light, Marble Garden, Casino Night, Mystic Cave, Death Egg, Labyrinth, Sandopolis, City, SEGA, Green Hill, Launch Base, Press Garden and Studiopolis (plus other possible new tilesets by myself).

I will be using some returning levels from SEB Lems as well as some levels which are also in the upcoming collab pack MegSEGAbytes, I feel that due to the theme of this level pack, I feel like it is a collection of levels which use these tilesets in particular so I feel reusing the levels from other packs is relevant.

I have an initial target of 100 levels for this pack but knowing what happened with my previous pack SEB Lems, I had a target of 120 levels there and ended up with 175 levels so the 100 target on this pack may well be exceeded by up to 50%.

As of right now I have 45 levels already including possible inclusions from SEB Lems and MegSEGAbytes.
I have no idea about rank names or how many ranks the pack will have either. I will probably stick with the SEB Lems theme and have 20 levels per rank though when I do decide on the ranks :)

I have some early level images anyway of some of the entirely new levels.

If you're looking for rank ideas let me give a few

Set a
50cc
100cc
150cc
200cc
MAXcc

Set b
Cruse
Drive
Throttle
Race!
Light-Speed

Set c
D license
C license
B license
A license
S license

I know these are racing themed but I figure they have to do with speed so why the heck not?
if it helps, let me know your favorite.
also why not try the metropolis set? it is based on a sonic game

Hey Flopsy, could you explain the title? "Gotta Go Fast" to me doesn't contain any hint about Sonic. (I'm not an expert on the game though, so perhaps there's a reference in there that escapes me.)

Lemmings Mania is unfortunately already taken, as far as I know, by the follow-up to Lemmings Redux :) .

But what speaks against "Sonic Lems", "Sonic the Hedgelem", or something along those lines? :D

Gotta Go Fast is a tagline associated with Sonic, it's something which especially gets chanted at speedrunning events for the game. I felt like this was the best name for the pack personally. Also I have plans for other SEGA references for the pack so putting Sonic in the title is possibly better for this reason if I do go ahead with this.

Believe me, I have pondered for ages what the name of this pack should be and may be I might come with something better closer to release but Gotta Go Fast is a good working title for me personally.

I'm taking a break from this project for a while, the progress is on ice for the time being.

I feel like the recent contest's entries have not been well received and as a consequence, the future of this pack is hanging in the balance right now.
