All nine skills are functional now (though bugs still exist with most of them).

Here's a couple of videos showing actual solutions to a couple of levels from my pack - be warned that these show the actual solutions, so don't watch them if you want to avoid spoilers.

Tricky 40 "Data Corruption" https://youtu.be/SiOSSfy6YAs
Taxing 53 "Complimentary Lemmings" https://youtu.be/yjJ6Hm2I8YE

Ice and interactive objects, and RR adjustment, remain unsupported at this stage, though the intent is to support all three.

Lovely progress!

Single-minded development over days and weeks, where you pour all free time into one complex project, is pure bliss. Enjoy it! It can take years to find such a project for oneself. And with DireKrow, you have a profound playtester and thorough bug hunter.

I'll skip these spoiler videos from real levels. I haven't looked into your 3D pack yet. And it's getting to look like Loap will soon be the better engine to play your pack.

This video is a spoiler to an official level, specifically Fun 12. The level mostly revolves around bomber timing; the one non-bomber skill is extremely obvious where to place, so even if you haven't played the level this isn't really a huge loss.

Another preview video. This one doesn't show off a successful solution to any level; it shows the first thing people generally try on Mayhem 77 "Critical Path" (official), which doesn't actually work.

I can't get this to work. I've updated .NET but the program just hangs for a few seconds and then fails to open. Not sure what's going wrong or how to troubleshoot it.

EDIT: Never mind, it was because I didn't have the music. It's working now :thumbsup:

Postview screen coming along nicely.

(Video spoils one possible solution for a very easy X-of-everything level from my pack.)

Three of the traps - the bear trap, the squasher, and the trap from Taxing 55 / Taxing 58 / Mayhem 70 - are now implemented.

https://youtu.be/CgxF41CXwP0

The other two traps shouldn't be far behind.

You've probably seen in the release builds by now that the rest of the traps, and the teleporter and rope slide, are working now.

I just added springs to that list too. That leaves trampolines as the only physics feature not yet implemented.

Trampolines are now supported too. Not quite perfect to L3D, but then, few things in Loap are. :P

https://youtu.be/Tv7oIEUFqJc (Spoils the solution to an official Mayhem level; Mayhem 69 "Over The Top".)

At this point, at least in theory (more might arise due to minor differences / bugs with actual testing), there are only two publicly-released levels that Loap does not yet support, both of them from the official game - Fun 1 "Take A Dive" and Taxing 49 "Which Trampoline?", due to antisplat blocks not being implemented yet.

Loap now has one of NeoLemmix's most well-known and useful features. :D
