[Lemmings 2] Holiday Tribe 2020
« on: November 29, 2020, 06:09:09 PM »
After a tough 2020, the Lemmings have treated themselves to travelling to a far away tropical island to try and cheer themselves up. And hopefully, their adventures will cheer you up too.

Holiday Tribe 2020 is a 10 level Lemmings 2 pack, replacing all 10 levels of the Beach Tribe. While levels are more difficult than the official levels, that's not a terribly hard barrier to overcome, and the level pack as a whole is much easier than my other Lemmings 2 pack, Quest From Kieran 2.

As always with Lemmings 2, you are expected to save everyone where possible. In this pack you can save everybody, with the aim being to get the full 60 lemmings to the end. Some levels are extremely easy if you are OK with letting at least one lemming die. Saving them all is the real puzzle.



After not touching Lemmings for a long time, I felt in the mood for a quick one-off. Lemmings 2 Tribes are nice because they are only 10 levels long, and the level editing is pretty fast due to the restrictive grid massively limiting your options. This entire tribe was built in the span of a single weekend.

How to Install
Back up your current Lemmings 2 LEVELS folder, then extract the contents of the zip into there, overwriting the existing files.

Very nice! The 10 levels will fit into one or two evenings even in the busy December work schedule. The clams are already looking forward.

I'd be up to speed-solve them on livestream. geoo or anybody else: Who would be up for it?

In case there are no takers, I'll solve them peacefully at home and post written/video feedback in a couple weeks after the solving. geoo will play them on stream with me.

Haven't played any Lemmings levels in a while, but this is always a treat.

I'd be down for some speed-solving on stream, especially if the levels are not super tough. Some evening next weekend maybe?

geoo is happy with either of these two dates:

Saturday, December 5, 17:00 UTC
Sunday, December 6, 17:00 UTC

Kieran, which of these fits you better?

Thanks to Simon and geoo for their stream, found lots of backroutes.

I've attached v2 to the opening post to fix all of the backroutes, and I also replaced one of the levels! The new level is sadly a bit awkward with its execution requirements, but that's Lemmings 2 for you.

Went through the revised levels, I guess I found a couple of backroutes and a couple of intended solutions.

Thanks geoo. You will probably be able to determine from the changelog below which of your solutions were unintended and which weren't.

I think we got a bunch of backroutes and a few intended solutions again.

Thanks again geoo, getting a lot closer to a full set of intended solutions now.

Not too happy with the change I've had to make to level 10, adds a tiny bit of precision I originally wanted to try and avoid, but I guess it can't be helped.

I feel like I'm getting closer...2 and 9 look like they might be intended, while 10 looks like a hack.
