[NeoLemmix] Lemmings United [Difficulty: Hard-Extreme]
« on: February 18, 2019, 08:48:42 pm »
Over 3 years in development and it's finally here: Lemmings United! :thumbsup:

1.) Download Links:

Lemmings United (V 7.1 ~ 619 KB): Lemmings United V 7.1

Contains the level pack in the newest version!

Lemmings United Music (~ 153 MB) : Lemmings United Music

Contains the music tracks! Extract all the tracks into the "music" folder of your NeoLemmix player. If the player does not have a "music" folder yet, create one in the same folder where the player is located.


To update you only need to redownload + replace the files of the previous version. The music only needs to be downloaded + configurated on your first download!

2.) Installation:

1. Get a NeoLemmix player from: https://www.neolemmix.com/  and extract it into a folder of your choice (if you already have an up-to-date player you can skip this step)
    Also make sure you got all the styles as well and extracted them into your player's "styles" folder.
2. Unzip "Lemmings_United.zip" into the "levels" folder of your Neolemmix player.  ../levels/Lemmings_United should exist now. If the "levels" folder does not exist create it.
3. Extract all the music files from "United_Music.zip" into the "music" folder of your NeoLemmix player. If the player does not have a "music" folder yet, create one in the same folder where the player is located.
4. Run "NeoLemmix.exe" and press F2 in the main menu so you can access the pack through the level browser.
5. Inform yourself about the basics, new NeoLemmix features and hotkeys with the manual: https://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?topic=4081.0
6. Enjoy!

3.) Ratings:

Pacifism

Island Of Dreams:



Here we start things of with a quick introduction followed by some simple puzzles. This should not be too hard for most people, but especially at the rank's end where I start to introduce some sneaky tricks you will need to start your thinking engine. ;)

Neutrality

Revenants:



More advanced tricks and more combinations of tricks await you here. You skills will start to be tested seriously now and you may even need to learn a few new tricks.

Tension

My Little Lemmagotchi:



Things start to get really difficult at this point. Even though there will be some breathers here and there, you must release all puzzling power that you have to make it through here. Already learned tricks might also resurface in a more unobvious environments and it is very likely that you will discover new tricks for your arsenal. I have learned quite a variety of tricks in my Lemmings history and by reaching this rank you prove to be a worthy test subject. :evil:

War

Kraft Und Licht:



Now I really want to see the steam come out of your head! Very complex skill combinations and unobvious behaviors will be required to survive (all while still being fair of course). Can you get through the onslaught of tough levels, or will you give up? :devil:

Genocide

Gate To The Inner Sanctum:



No more prisoners! It seems like I will need to release everything in terms of tricks and skills that I've learned on you! There is no more mercy! Face the puzzle nightmares I've prepared for you and you may make it in the end! :devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil::devil:

Bonus

The Adventures of Lemdiana Jones:



Here I gathered and roughly sorted in terms of difficulty all the additional contest, collaboration and single levels I've made during development. Enjoy this little extra!

Win a prize for solving ALL ofLemmings United!

I've prepared 3 prizes for the first 3 people who solve ALL of the pack with 100% backroute-free solutions. So sadly if you solved a few levels with backroutes you will still need to resolve my update until no more backroutes remain.

The prizes are copies of my hand-scribbled blueprints for a part of the levels, which will be sent to you after your solutions are accepted!

Congratulations, IchoTolot! :party::party::party:

Lemmings United certainly is one of the most expected releases in Lemmings custom level design scene, and it's soon 4 years since the groundbreaking Lemmings Reunion arised, huhhuh!

I like how the rating level previews and descriptions have changed since the development topic. :P

The prize idea is funny, though I doubt if anyone is going to solve the entire pack in a long time, given the assumed difficulty and enormous amount of levels, let alone that three people would achieve that! But now there's certainly loads of challenge in it, anyway. :D This might make people not to post their replay solutions in public, though.

Aaand again I have to think if I dare to tackle this pack immediately because of my schoolwork. I tend and like to get absorbed into games like this! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words. :)

I have to say I get a bit nostalgic thinking of the timespan from Reunion being around the first released NL packs back in the days and United now. So many things happened during that timeframe.

Yeah, sorry I couldn't really help with the testing anymore beyond the first rank ;) . I did solve some of the remaining levels in the meantime, but nothing really worth mentioning starting from rank 2. And I don't think the pack has gotten any easier since then.

Congratulations for the official release, IchoTolot! ;) I guess though that I should probably try completing Lemmings Reunion first before attempting to make further progress on United - after all, I give the same advice to players of my own packs (Open Air is going to be more difficult on average than World Tour).
Ghost Lemmings - help us test a possible new NeoLemmix skill!
My packs so far:
Lemmings World Tour, my music-themed flagship pack, 320 levels - Let's Played by Colorful Arty
Paralems, a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems, a more puzzly one, 100 levels - Let's Played by nin10doadict
Lemmicks, a pack for NeoLemmix 1.43 full of gimmicks, 170 levels

I managed to finish the Pacifism rank :) Since it is only the first rank I'll post my replays on the thread but I doubt anyone on this forum will steal them and pass them on as their own for the sake of the prize.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Also a big congratulations from me as well in finishing this pack! You worked hard on this pack and it shows :thumbsup:

Thanks for the replays and kind words! :thumbsup:

Great job on the first rank, everything intended or acceptable except: 1 26. ;)



Thanks why V 1.1 is out! With following changes:

- 1 26 backroute fix (moved a pair of arrows a bit higher)



As far in terms of replay steal: I doubt the first (or even 2nd and 3rd) rank will ever be the area of problems in terms of 100% completion + I look through all of these in detail and I am very confident that I will recognise duplicates. :evil:

Removed the "getting the non-standard NL tileset part (zanzindorf_agony)" from the download links + installation guide as it now part of the standard library of NL tilesets. :)

V 1.51 is out due to a little problem with a staircase!

The following level has received a fix:

- 3 20 (a staircase was fixed, level was still solvable though)
