I agree, we're half way through the calendar and so far only one level from TRForge and 2 (as of today) from Levelbase. I love Xmas levels and think it's a sad state of affairs that builders don't want to make them anymore :(

Although the competition is a nice idea - I can't build so am out of that unfortunately.

I hate to correct you in this case but there hasn't been a single level in the forge-calendar yet.
About the competition: We try to have a big variety in tasks, so it's definitely not needed to be a builder. So far only 1 of 12 daily challenges required LE-knowledge.

I actually find it hugely disrespectful of people to complain about the lack of levels this year. It basically devaluates all the (usually brilliant and entertaining) non-level content from the advent calendars.

Also, no one here is in any position to actually expect to get (or even demand) advent levels (or really just custom levels in general). Builders put a huge amount of time, work and dedication into a level and the fact that you people all get them for free to play in your leisure time is pretty damn nice of all those level builders (attention: gigantic understatement!). If you do get levels, be happy and enjoy them. If you don't get any, you have absolutely no right to mope or complain. Try to build a custom level yourself for a change and maybe you'll start to recognise the work that is being put into them (and thus recognise your lack of proper appreciation for the level builders).

Meh, just my two cents. It really bothers me to see how some people think about the whole custom-level thing, especially now with the advent calendars.

Couldn't agree more Nadine :)

There are nice recipes to try out as well as guessing games that can keep you busy. Apart from the over 2000 other levels that are there :D
Oops, I did it again... Image

I merely stated an observation Nadine, not a complaint. I KNOW it takes a lot of effort and huge amount of time to build a level (whatever the theme) - I'm sad that there seems to be less and less builders making Xmas themed levels each year.

That is all.

Nothing works. Maybe it's something wrong with my computer?

I downloaded few times. Always the same. I think the only way is to wait for Piper and ask her to fix it.

there should ne nothing wrong with the file. I downloaded it and got a perfect zip-package, that could be extracted with any unzipping-software (I'm using IzArc)

What is the problem:
Can't you unpack the package,
or can you unpack, but the game is crashing?

The second one, the game is crashing. I'll try again.
