Thanks iCS! Excellent video!!!

I got great FEM feeling from the pictures and video clips at the beginning. The tractor was funny :D And the recs and players' skills are amazing. Maybe this is the best FEM video ever? ;) Thank you everyone!

Re: GAA suggestions thread 2018

I agree with Ramone in the sense that I think that it's more important to have good playability than a good-looking level. But the best levels have them both. I think level designing means both of them: designing the styles and designing the outlook.

Good idea tej, but some levels are very much different without apples. In level 11 the apple is important: you have to dodge it to get to the secret area. And in level 15 you have to take left gravity apple to reach the secret area. So please play the original levels :)
