The WillLem - Permanent skill. At random times, the WillLem will get an idea, stop what it's doing and wander off to post on an internet forum about joke ideas for skills, objects and levels. If two WillLems exist in a level, there is a small chance that one of them will read the other one's ideas and immediately implement them, changing the gameplay of the level you are currently playing.

Now this is an idea I like! :thumbsup: :crylaugh:

The Harpooner. This is a 3/4 joke, 1/4 serious suggestion ;) : A combination of several of the skills currently in the running for the 20th skill:

The lemming throws a modern-day whaling harpoon with a detonating end piece. This is a long, thin projectile that causes an explosion when it hits and has a rope attached to it.
- The shape of the harpoon would be identical to the spear of the Spear Thrower and could therefore be used as such.
- The detonation on impact creates a Bomber crater. This and the arc of motion would be that of a Mortar.
- Attached to the harpoon is a rope. This could serve as a surrogate Roper, but with a fixed arc - and thus potentially serve as a downward Builder.
- If you exceed the maximum length of the rope, the rope will tear, leaving behind just the harpoon with the detonating end piece. Now you have a genuine Mortar and Spear Thrower at once! ;) This projectile without the rope is going to continue on its parabolic trajectory until it hits terrain.
- If you shoot up into the ceiling, with thin-enough terrain, you can find Laser-Blaster-like applications.
- The Harpooner can kill Zombies.

I don't know, maybe this would be a valid compromise for a lot of people who are currently espousing either the Spear Thrower, the Mortar, the Laser Blaster, or a downward Builder? ???

It won't be a stand-in for the Slider, but it could fullfil a lot of these other purposes... while still being logically consistent (after all, these modern whaling harpoons with detonating end pieces do exist, unfortunately). :8():
My packs so far:
Lemmings World Tour (New & Old Formats), my music-themed flagship pack, 320 levels - Let's Played by Colorful Arty
Paralems (Old Formats), a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems (Old Formats), a more puzzly one, 100 levels - Let's Played by nin10doadict
Lemmicks, a pack for (very old) NeoLemmix 1.43 full of gimmicks, 170 levels

This is actually a good idea!

Just whilst we're riffing, though:

The Puddler - a lemming that becomes a puddle, and is then able to flow wherever they like (kind of like T-1000).

The Temperamental Teleporter - a teleporter that sometimes doesn't work, and requires a Disarmer to come and fix it (thus creating another use for the Disarmer!)

The High Maintenance Teleporter - a teleporter that only works if the lemmings assure it of their continuing love and affection.

The Dairy Farmer - Interacts with new Cow objects to produce Milk, which can either be sold for tokens to buy more skills, or processed further at the Cheese Factory object for increased token yield.

Inspired by this video.

the Policer to arrest naughty lemmings no discernible skill just for my own amusement to be used in combination with the cannoner

the cannoner operates a vehicle mounted water cannon to blast away zombies
