Many members of the community have contributed with a variety of software for the game, such as level editors, sites, LGR editors, level generators, and more. Some have shared helpful information about the game, such as .lev and .rec file structures. On top of that, some players have created APIs and software libraries to help others with the creation of programs, while some of the programs are as well open source. Mostly, all of this information can be found dispersedly in Mopolauta, but as time goes by, more people join the community and some of this helpful stuff tend to be forgotten and difficult to find.

The purpose of this section is to organize, maintain, and to provide helpful links and information about all the software related stuff that the community have created for the game, and for the developers that want to collaborate to improve our experience as players and as a community.
