According to my experience is not possible with last version of Reanimator cook/uncook level rules file from Revival - data in file is damaged while processing.
You can try it with some older version of Reanimator, which used Seferoth while making Lost london. But it's not tested...

I'm a little puzzled Kikina, I didn't think either Revival or Unofficial Revival had the level_rules file.
If that's the case, then the cooked version from Lost London could be inserted into whichever mod.zip and installed normally. It doesn't need to be uncooked. In fact, the mod launcher probably won't like cooking a file if it was uncooked by the latest Reanimator.

To uncook: open the table in Reanimator, go to file -> Export, select your destination, click Save.

Sure, Revival not using modificated level rules file.
File from Lost london can be used in Revival, but compatibility of this file with my other changes in mod is NOT GUARANTEED.
Now to the reanimator error (btw, this error is the main reason why I failed to reconstruct Stonehenge).
It is ABSOLUTELY not possible to change the level rules file using the latest version of the Reanimator.
If you open this table with Reanimator and save it (it suffices without changes) - game crashes after aplication of this file, or some levels will do not work correctly.
If you save file via export in text form and then you cook it into Hellpack manually - game crashes after aplication of this file, or some levels will do not work correctly.
Thanks to research Black/LyraDarius in last days of work on Unofficial revival now we know, so its possible only one way - with some old version of Reanimator save level rules file in text form (export), then make changes in it through some text editor and then cook it manually with Hellpack.

Ah ok. I'll keep that in mind.
