Hey everyone!

The recent departure of HiGuy meant that he took down a lot of services he's made in the past, including his CLA website which webport relies on. This, and having always thought that Marble Blast custom levels are kind of a mess (they're all over the place and they're all uploaded in different formats with README instructions and so on), I decided I wanna try and improve things, so I spent the last couple of weeks creating Marbleland.

Marbleland is a website meant to contain *all* custom levels for Marble Blast. It allows you to search and download levels and also upload all your own levels. I also added a level pack feature which allows users to bundle multiple thematically related levels on Marbleland together which can then be downloaded all at once with a single click.

In order to add your own content to Marbleland, you'll need to create an account. I encourage every one of you to create an account, check if all your own custom levels are already there and if not, to add them. Additionally, it would be great if you could group your levels into your own level pack.

I already added the entire HiGuy CLA, Invictaa's 2016-2021 CLA and all PQ customs, which adds up to about 5000 levels which is over 5GB of content. Some levels might be duplicate and others missing or wrongly imported, and that's why I ask all of you to test this website as much as you can.

The goal of Marbleland is to ultimately replace the forum post custom level submission thing we've been doing for so many years and to have a single, standard place to share our custom levels.

Awesome alternative to HiGuy's CLA site. I've been seriously missing it since it got taken down so I'm thrilled to see something like this come to life. Thank you so much for making this.

Oftentimes named Chris.

Ah, before I forget. Stuff still is buggy and files missing in some zips, so would be cool to list all the bugs and missing features you find here in this thread so I can find them easily and fix 'em.

Thank you!

Seems like Chrome doesn't yet know my site and is flagging downloads as "not commonly downloaded and potentially dangerous". Sadly, there's little I can do about this. Let's hope it'll go away after some time.

Marbleland left beta and is now in v1.0.0! I added a bunch of features since then, the most notable being batch level download (available from the search page) allowing you to download a massive amount of levels at once.
