How to prepare your map files for Mordhau.mod.io

This guide assumes that you have created a modded level for Mordhau, if you don't know where to start : Discord.gg #modding-kit channel

Download the Mordhau Paker

Special thanks to Teslov for coding this usefull app !

1. Launch the app

2

2. Fill in the fields as follows :

The first one will be your .pak name.

7

The second one must be the folder where your cooked level + its assets are.

8

The third one is the folder where the map should be installed in Mordhau : Since you are paking a modded map, your path should be the same as this one (simply replace "FusionMod" by your map folder name)

9

The path must start with ../../../Mordhau/, and always end with *.*

- Click on "PAK my modpack" : the output will be displayed

Don't worry about the warnings they are normal. Just make sure the number of added files is correct (must be equal to the number of files you wanted to pak)

6

- Select the folder where you want your pak file to be created.

In my example i send the pak directly into the paks folder of Mordhau so i can test my map locally

4 1

When you do that, remember to remove this file from that paks/ folder once your mod will be shared on mod.io : you don't want to have 2 times the same level in your mordhau install (the mod.io version will be auto-downloaded in another folder)

3. Test your file :

Place your pak file in the Paks/ folder of Mordhau (see the path in the previous screenshot right above)

Launch Mordhau, open the console and type

"Open levelname" or "changelevel levelname"

Your level should load. Make sure that everything is in order : Assets, textures, blueprints that you eventually used, spawns, etc.

Troubleshooting : There have been cases where, when you place a pak in here for the very first time, it doesn't get loaded automatically, and you will have to type in the following command in the console :

MountPak C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mordhau\Mordhau\Content\Paks\Yourpak.pak

(Your path to mordhau may vary depending on where it's installed)

If everything is in order, zip your file and upload it to the mordhau.mod.io site through the mod creation page.

When posting your map, it is highly recommended to specify what are the level names since server owners can't access that information easily.

Is there going to be a tutorial for gamemode mods (For example: Horde mode without weapons etc...)?

2cool
2cool @2cool

If it's only about restricting weapons you can already do that with simple server modifications (you can find guides about that on the modding discord.)

theubre @theubre

Only guides I've been able to find are for dedicated servers. I use g-portal (The officially sponsored host) and I can only modify the Main.ini file.

2cool
2cool @2cool

With g-portal, you need to use a FTP connection to access other files G-portal.us?

Are we able to play these maps in a single player match?

2cool
2cool @2cool

Assuming you have already joined a server earlier that was running them, you should be able to play maps locally by typing "changelevel <levelname>" in the console, from the main menu. To get the level name, check the mod description. If the mod creator didn't specify the level(s) name(s), try with prefixes such as FFA_mapname, or use the mapname itself.
Another way, if you want to try the maps without connecting to a server running them in the first place, would be to download the .pak file from here, then mount manually this file in mordhau, like it is described in the "To test your file" part of this guide.

抱歉我是亞洲玩家 我的英語不太好
這個是哪來做什麼的 為什麼我下載 的地圖都是.pak而不是.uexp or .uasset

Followed it to the T. Tried to test ingame, didn't work. :(
Mountpak was successful, but that's as far as it would go.

2cool @2cool

nothing happens when you changelevel ? come to the modding discord and ask for help here, it will be easier to look for the issue in real time.

How does someone go about creating mods for Mordhau? I've always wanted to learn, but I have no idea where to go.
I've created a model in Blender, but I have no Idea how to get it set up and turned into a pak file.

Can some master over here help guide me?
