Lemmings Isolation Development Topic
« on: July 03, 2022, 12:28:52 PM »
I hereby officially announce that I am going to start working on a new pack called Lemmings Isolation.

How will it look like?

Before I wanted to open this topic I had to make up my mind about exactly what I want to do here and more specifically the stucture of the pack. I did not want to make just another huge pack with even bigger ranks and clubber everything together. Therefore I wanted to come up with a plan on how to make things a bit different and I found the solution by getting inspiration from the past and more specifically: PimoLems and NepsterLems.

I plan to make smaller ranks with a theme in addition to some classical ranks (but also smaller). I don't want to limit myself too much though and I doubt I make it as strict as "In this rank are only levels with a 1:00 timer", but rather "Here I made levels with a close timer".

What exactly those themed ranks gonna be I still need to work out and also I will leave it classified for now.

What about all these contest level I made in the past time between United and this?

Those will go in an extra rank. I don't want a big part of the pack to be just "Oh, I know this level, it was in a contest!". They still gonna be included, but as an extra rank - also this makes it way easier for possible LOTY nomination in the future. ;P

Why announce now and not now earlier?

The intro pack is finally done (at least until the new objects arrive) and I think I soon can divert some more attention into making some levels again. Do I already have levels apart from all the recent contest entries? No, but let's say this topic shall also serve as a little motivation for me to slowly fire up the engine again. ;)

Why Lemmings Isolation?

This came from trying to name it with some connection to Reunion and United: Isolation --> Reunion --> United.

What will the difficulty be like?

I want to make some more easy/medium difficulty stuff in here, but also still want to have a punch in the end, maybe even in something like a "Hardcore" rank. So a good portion of the pack should be relatively accesible. Although if I have an idea and it turns out harder than expected I still won't shy away from it - but maybe consider something like a "Fun" version or an easier level which takes inspiration from it.

When it will be done?

An IchoTolot pack is always ready at the right time. It is neither early or late. Or in short: It's done when it's done and an update will come when I feel like it is appropriate. ;)

The whole truth is really just the following:
