How to change maps:

We have tried to make changing maps as easy as possible, and can now be done with the click of a button.

To get started, log on to your control panel, and navigate to the command line manager from here you will see a list of game modes and maps, simply select the one you would like to play and start the server.

If the map you are looking for is not on the list, press custom command lines then press new, fill out all the settings you would like to implement, including one of the following maps from the drop-down box:

  • The Island
  • The Center
  • Scorched Earth
  • Ragnarok
  • Crystal Isles
  • Valhalla - custom
  • Shigo Islands - custom
  • Mortem Tupiu - custom
  • The Volcano - custom
  • Thieves Island - custom
  • Skies of Nazzca - custom
  • Madagascar Evolved - custom
  • The old Island - custom
  • Olympus - custom
  • The Sunken World - custom

NOTE: If you are using custom command lines make sure to check the box to the left of any options you are setting / changing and only those options

Custom Maps

If the map you want to use has "- custom" on the end it means it is not a map that comes with the game by default, and you will need to follow these additional instructions

1. Find the map mod that you want to use on the steam workshop.
For example "The Volcano" would be 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=715028562
2. In the game panel click on "Steam Workshop", search for the map mod, then click the green install button below it.
3. Once the mod install process has been completed, create a custom command line using the command line manager.
 Make sure to select the map for the "Map" parameter (and tick the tick-box!)
 Make sure to enter the custom map's mod ID in the MapModID field, the modID can be found from the Steam Workshop URL as shown in the screenshot below:

It will look similar to this:

4. Save the command line and start the server, it will take a long time for the first startup as it has to load the custom map.


If the map you want to use can't be found in the drop-down menu for the custom command line field, let us know, and we will get it added for you!
