Hello guys!

This is a hold featuring one my favourite elements of TSS, lemmings!
There are several types of puzzles, some of them involving interactions that are not present in TSS and some others regarding interactions with many different elements.
The difficulty varies from room to room but overall this should be a pretty challenging hold.

I could have not done this without the help of many people, like Nuntar for helping me with challenge scripting and all the testers (larrymurk, Insoluble, Komachi, LeoS, blorx1, chaco and disoriented), who found tons of USs. Thank you very much, you guys are the best!

I forgot to review this when it came out, but it's a really solid hold. Lots of cool rooms, not too much stuff that's fiddly, and the worst offenders are challenges or do warn you.

Challenge bug: 2N2W challenge is unlocked upon clearing the room even when you've locked yourself in the process, which means it's broken.

Suggested fix: Unlock challenge only if player has went out of the enclosed area (rectangle from 1,2 to 36,29).

Hello Guys,

Obstinate Louisiana angler Thomas Gonzales doesn't comprehend what will hit him next. Following quite a while of typhoons and oil slicks, he faces another danger - swarms of huge 20 pound overwhelm rodents. Known as "nutria", these obtrusive South American rodents breed quicker than the meandering squads of seekers can control them. What's more, with their orange teeth and insatiable hunger they are gobbling up the seaside wetlands that ensure Thomas and his town of Delacroix Island from typhoons. In any case, the general population who have lived here for ages are not the sort of people who will surrender without a battle. Thomas and a pack of energetic abundance seekers are hellbent on sparing Louisiana before it breaks down underneath their feet. It is man versus rat. May the best warm-blooded creature win.

I haven't been to that room yet, but from looking at the map I think I see a solution and will attach a screenshot of it. :) Keep in mind how lemmings interact with rafts and that they can't turn back around on hot tiles without dying. Of course, setting this up probably requires shuffling around rafts for a few miles, so there might be a more efficient solution.
