Add Custom level category
Add custom level category for an increasing community of players that are streaming custom made games or levels such as TRLE levels (tomb raider level editor/ trle.net). Could also apply to other games with custom maps/mods etc.
There is a steadily increasing audience for these levels and it is detrimental to the streamer to have to set the game as "tomb raider the last revelation" most of the time, purely because this is the engine used, but not actually what is being streamed. People will open the stream for tomb raider 4 but leave when its not actually tomb raider 4.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. :)
I agree this should be a category on twitch, it would avoid people that doesn't know what trles are getting confused with the regular games.
Great idea, please do it.
Sounds like a winner to me

I'm here from the future to say that your efforts are successful. Twitch is now obligated by the laws of causality to adhere to your wishes.
Yes please, custom levels are amazing to watch! <3

Yes please! From a level builder <3
Please make it happen.
Upvote!! This needs to happen! Streaming TRLE levels is a great way to build community, bring in new fans who may not have heard of them is before, and keep the Tomb Raider fan base interested and engaged between major game releases. Please add this category!
Yes, completely agree with this idea. There are more people streaming Custom Levels than ever before and this is only set to grow.
I completely agree with this idea. ;)
The custom levels can be made for any of the 5 original TR games, adding this category would make things much better.
This new TRLE game category would be a huge help among the Tomb Raider fans. There's so many fan made levels that have become so popular and it's difficult to share them as the game would have to go under one of the official game titles. It's not so easy to find these fan made levels when you need to look through the other game titles and the talent put into these levels seemingly become lost.
Enough people stream these Level Editors that it would be a very welcomed addition to the games category.
You should really do this. Those custom levels are made in five different Tomb Raider engines so being able to only choose the original game as category confuses at least six groups of people. It happened many times the viewers felt misled or clickbaited and there's a risk it may backfire at streamers who didn't have bad intentions for as long as there is no separate custom level category provided. Please take care of this.
TRLEs are custom level created by fan of Tomb Raider franchise, using the engine of various original Tomb Raider games.
While it is a new game created by them, each level are unique, it's also an extraordinary wave of creativity, hard work, and imagination to make content for players.
Some levels created are action based, scary or funny, easy or challenging, with many aspects of gameplay, coding and design.
I can only recommended to promote this aspect of creating + gaming by adding a game category for it. The level editor tool is provided with the classic game Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation, to allow player to create more and make their own "game". But the creator is also able to use various ways of creating, based on all the first 5 classic games. That's why it's important to make a separate category for these created games.
Twitch has already expanded so much the categories, IRL, cooking, art, etc. and a place for TRLEs would definetely fit for the gaming and creativity side of Twitch. Players play, but also create!
Thank you for reading and looking forward seeing and playing more TRLEs creations! :)
I think a "Custom Level" category would have a real meaning on Twitch. I feel the platform thrives on user created content and sharing things between people and communities.
In this particular case, including this tag would help people find fan made levels within the Tomb Raider community. Known as a TRLE.
Other games might be custom Doom levels for example.
It can be used by streamers who have an interest in making levels, showing the process and get immediate feedback from viewers. This could attract viewers who may have completed a game they like and would like to continue playing it. For example, a fan made story or adventure.
Thank you Kara for the idea.

Karas right. TRLEs have their own large following and it’s about time they were acknowledged. TRLEs sustain the TR community immensely and without them Lara Croft would undoubtedly disappear. Or only be streamed very infrequently. Please listen Twitch. Thanks.
Good Idea Cara!
Yes please add this category, I stream custom tomb raider levels too, Add TRLES Please !!
