4/5/22: Gotta Go Fast v1.56 is out.

Yes, you've guessed it, another back route fix for Chilli Dog 19....

past versions (click to show/hide)

Original Post
4 years ago today I released a pack called SEB Lems after making 175 levels in a little over 18 months with a lot of help from Wafflem.
Now I present to you after 4 whole years since SEB Lems.



To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, I am releasing a Lemmings pack entirely made of Sonic the Hedgehog tilesets.
Help guide the Sonic Lemmings to the exits in 189 levels across 9 ranks!
Help Sonic overcome Eggman's plans to take control of these mindless Sonic Lemmings and use them for his evil plans.



DISCLAIMERS (PLEASE READ):
1. This pack uses a lot of custom animations, and uses no effect trigger objects. These have been added for nostalgia purposes for the sake of trying to make the tilesets look as much like a Sonic game as possible. If you don't like this, please disable the background images in the config menu.
2. Most levels have 10 minute time limits by default, I discussed this with a few people before deciding on whether to implement this or not and I got all kinds of responses to this so my gut feeling was to just implement this feature. I am not going to have this pack topic descend into discussion about the time limits being unnecessary, this was also added for nostalgic purposes (Sonic would die if the time limit reached 10:00 on most Sonic games). I have added this to the levels where it is possible to solve the level significantly under the time limit (ie. you have at least 3 mins left) so I have added these time limits appropriately and not just to every single level.

This pack is deemed to be mostly on par with the difficulty of SEB Lems, however some testers have said that this pack is a little harder than SEB Lems even.

This pack is made up of 9 ranks, the first 7 of which are the main difficulty ranks and the last 2 are bonus ranks.
The pack also features custom sprites made to look like Sonic (thanks to Nessy for making these).
Each rank contains 21 levels, the final level in each rank is a boss stage and features a unique music track.
The first 7 ranks contain one level from each of the 21 main tilesets used in the pack.

With Special Thanks to
Nessy - for being the sole tester for this entire 4 year development cycle, helping me with making backgrounds and the lemming sprites. Such a great person to work with, always willing to help!
Also for providing the Hydrocity tileset for the pack.
Wafflem - "We've finally done it, the pack is finished. I wish you could be here to see it finished, please come back soon". For being a second tester when he was not away and being the pure inspiration behind this pack.
Lucia - Love Always xxxx
namida - for always being there to assist at the odd hours of the night when I would be cursing about why a certain new NL feature wasn't working or an update had broke the pack or tilesets! XD
WillLem - for testing/improvements on the 1st rank and providing an animation for the Scrap Brain buzzsaw, it looks great!
GigaLem - for the work you have done on making the Sonic tilesets look great.
Plom - for the Metro, Studiopolis and Press Garden tilesets
and anyone else who has been supportive of this pack over the years!


ROSE - Named after the stalker Amy Rose, this rank starts out with nice X of everything levels and a few other kinds of levels designed to ease you into the pack.


SHIELD - The 2nd rank, named after the Shield power up that Sonic collects on his travels. Still X of everythings in this rank but the difficulty is higher.


RING - The 3rd rank, named after those golden rings which Sonic collects on his travels. We now shift towards Puzzle style levels and the X of everything levels become much less common, unless X=1 of course :P.


SNEAKER - The 4th rank, named after Sonic's very speed shoes. The speed is largely getting up to running speed by this point, we are truely into the meat of the pack now and the difficulty is ramping up.


EMERALD - The 5th rank, named after those collectable jewels in the bonus stages of Sonic. Now we are truely heading into the harder levels in the pack, they are hard just like collecting the emeralds in the Sonic games!


SUPER SONIC - The 6th rank, named after Sonic's powerful form after collecting all the emeralds. Now the levels are getting larger and much more complex, a lot more abstract thinking required here.


CHILLI DOG - The 7th and final difficulty rank. Here we are, the last hurrah! The pack doesn't get any harder than this! Can you get to the coveted Chilli Dog at the end of the pack?


ENCORE - An overflow rank of levels which didn't fit into the main ranks but were still awesome enough to include in the pack. Including a few collabs with other level creators!


TOOLKIT - This rank is a certain type of level which I felt belonged in its own rank so that if you don't want to play these types, just stay out of this rank. These are levels with large skillsets and require a large amount of thinking and resources to solve. I know some people don't like this level type so I chose to separate them out (That's not to say the rest of the pack is entirely free of these "toolkit" type levels though!).


Now onto the tilesets by Flopsy.
Scrap Brain (Sonic 1) - the old favourite, remastered for GGF. Special thanks to WillLem for helping with the buzzsaw animation.


Happy Hour (Shield 10)

Star Light (Sonic 1) - remastered for GGF, now with added lighting effects.


Do You Believe in Magic? (Super Sonic 10)

Marble Garden (Sonic 3) - remastered for GGF with improved water animations.


Harden The Paint (Emerald 8)

Casino Night (Sonic 2) -  remastered for GGF with significant light effect improvements.


Casino is the Night (Ring 1)

Sandopolis (Sonic & Knuckles) - remastered for GGF with improved updraft symbolising.


Pedalpusher (Chilli Dog 8)

Mystic Cave (Sonic 2) - remastered for GGF with improved trap visibility


Shining Light (Sneaker 16)

Death Egg (Sonic & Knuckles) - remastered for GGF with improved animations


Death and Destruction (Emerald 14)

Labyrinth (Sonic 1) (in collab with GigaLem) - the water labyrinth of Sonic 1, possibly everyone's nightmare when playing Sonic. This tileset will feature water related Swimmer puzzles in most cases.


Let's Ride (Ring 21)

Chemical Plant (Sonic 2) (in collab with GigaLem) - the Chemical Plant from Sonic 2, featuring teleporter tubes and plenty of megamac to swim around in!


Lems at Work (Ring 20)

Lava Reef (NEW) (Sonic & Knuckles) - a new tileset, a cave filled with glorious lava. There is also a colder variant for where the lava has cooled (like Act 2). Needless to say the Lava will kill.


It's Tea and Biscuits Time! (Chilli Dog 19)

Oil Ocean (NEW) (Sonic 2) - the classic zone from Sonic 2 (which recently made an appearance in Sonic Mania, this tileset is based on the Sonic 2 classic zone. A tileset based on pipes and an oil water (can swim in). Similar to Sandopolis, oil slopes act as one way fields.


Past the Point of Delirium (Super Sonic 4)

Spring Yard (NEW) (Sonic 1) - the original pinball zone from Sonic 1, this tileset has a mesh similar to the crystal tileset in standard Lemmings which the Lemmings will be able to traverse.


Whodunnit? (Chilli Dog 5)

Hill Top (NEW) (Sonic 2) - a high altitude zone from Sonic 2, this zone has some grass terrain and even underground terrain. This tileset also features Lava, be very careful.


Down the Hillside (Emerald 16)

Marble Zone (NEW) (Sonic 1) - the original lava zone from Sonic 1, has some resemblances to Marble Garden Zone with the grass however this tileset features Lava, a pillar trap and ruins.


The Big Fat Greek Level (Super Sonic 18)

Metropolis (NEW) (Sonic 2) - the Scrap Brain of Sonic 2, this tileset features conveyor belts, molten lava and teleporters.


This is Lemmings! (Shield 21)

Ice Cap (NEW) (Sonic 3) - the last tileset to be made for the pack, felt like an ice tileset was what the pack needed to round out the variety of environments. Bears some resemblance to L2 Polar and ONML Snow but the crystal lattice pattern brings some uniqueness to this tileset.


The Last Blocker (Ring 11)


Guest Tilesets by other authors

Green Hill Zone (Sonic 1) (by GigaLem) - the original GHZ tileset by GigaLem, a must for a Sonic pack.


69 and OUT! (Sneaker 3)

Launch Base (Sonic 3) (by timfoxxy and GigaLem) - the final zone from Sonic 3, where Eggman originally planned to launch the Death Egg into space.


Geronimo! (Sneaker 15)

Studiopolis (Sonic Mania) (by Plom) - A newer Sonic Mania zone reimagined by Plom, a bit of a studio based zone.


The Cascade Swimathon (Sneaker 14)

Press Garden (Sonic Mania) (by Plom) - A newer Sonic Mania zone reimagined by Plom, a newspaper press mixed with Japanese cultured terrain.


Dawn Treader (by Flopsy/Wafflem) (Sneaker 21)

Hydrocity (Sonic 3) (by Nessy) (NEW) - the water zone from Sonic 3, reimagined by Nessy, a bit of a water rollercoaster!


Detonator (Chilli Dog 12)

plus more special guests!

These styles were all submitted to the styles manager earlier this week and namida has updated all these tilesets so you can either download them from within NeoLemmix's styles manager or alternately, the styles are included in the download anyway.

Download the music pack for Gotta Go Fast here
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ip0arwol1n0vnxy/lemmings_presents_ggf_musicpack.zip?dl=1
(71 tracks, 282MB size)

Optional download
Includes a few custom sounds for the pack - note that this will play on all packs you play and not just this pack. It is optional to download this but it will add a few more sounds which will improve the player experience.
Alternative "Let's Go" - instead of saying "Let's Go", a sound of Sonic saying "HERE WE GO!" will play like he does in Sonic Unleashed when beginning a level.
Success jingle which plays the Japanese version of Sonic CD's post level jingle.
Failure jingle which plays the game over tune for Sonic Spinball.
To download these sounds, download the "optional_ggf_sounds.zip" and extract to your NeoLemmix folder. You will have to overwrite existing files.

Congratulations on the release! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Onto my "to-play" list it goes. :)  It will probably be a little while before I get to it, but I bet in the meantime some people will give you some backroutes to worry about. ;P

I've solved first two ranks. 8-)
I attached replays and here're some feedback.
Well it was a perfect choice for me to play this pack during the holidays. :thumbsup:
(as I mentioned on discord, we are having long thanks giving holidays so I have plenty of time to play lemmings.)
The preview images are already nice-looking but GGF was beyond my expectation when I actually played it.
There are bunch of awesome styles, backgrounds, custom sounds and great puzzles! not to mention that the musics are fantastic. :D
Especially I’m so happy that you presented so many nice tilesets featuring various types of water. I’ve really hoped there are more styles with waterfall object & transparent water so I can make/play swimmer puzzle which is one of my favourite types of puzzle.
The first two ranks were not too hard. I think I breezed though most of the levels. I expect the difficulty to be much higher toward the end though.

Shield Rank (click to show/hide)

So far I’m very much enjoying the pack, and will definitely play more. :thumbsup: Let’s see how far I can get during the holidays. :laugh: Of course I will play though the entire pack but after the holidays I think I have to slow down the pace.

More replays incoming!
I solved 3rd rank today. :laugh:
The difficulty felt somewhat similar to first two ranks at the beginning but it becomes harder and harder toward the end of the rank.
There are another batch of really nice levels here!

namida helped me code most of these objects but the nxmo files for the corresponding objects in the flopsy styles should give you an idea what to write.
