How to set up custom maps on your Mordhau server

A Guide on how to set up your Server so you can play with custom Maps!


Posted by on


Hello! Today I'm going to teach you how to install Custom Maps on your Server!
If you do not have a Server or are not a Server Owner you do not need this Tutorial

Step 1 / Source for Maps!

First of all, you will need a source for your average dose of dank and epic maps!
For that we will go to

You will need to create an Account to make a Server Token!

Step 2 / Finding Maps, Getting them and your ServerAuthToken!

Now click on the Mordhau Logo on the left side of the website.

Congratulations! You are now on the Mods/ Maps overview page.

You can subscribe to them by clicking the red eye symbol top right corner on each picture for the maps.

Now we come to the ServerAuthToken, for that click on your Profile Picture.

Once you have done that navigate to API access (on the left side, under the logo)

Here you can see OAuth 2 Managment that is the place you create all of your tokens for your Servers if you have multiple they will be listed.

Now scroll down and enter a Name for your Token in the bar saying "Token Name". After that click create token.


After you have done that a huge text should appear like this:
Click on Copy Token

Step 3 / Where does the Token go?

If you are hosting from a website like g-portal

1. Go to your Server
2. Click on Configuration data on the left side.
3. Open up the Game.ini

Now look for ServerModAuthToken=

Paste your token you just copied in there like this:

If you are hosting differently

You will need to access the Game.ini file on your Server located under:


Look for ServerModAuthToken=

And paste the token in there like this:

ServerModAuthToken=(your token)

Step 4/ Aftermath and Starting the Map on your Server

Well done! You now have installed the Map you wanted on your Server! (Every Map or Mod you subscribe to in the page the Server will install automaticly)

If you now join your Server you should be able to open up the Map via Console.

The Command to change the map would be:

ChangeMap (you do not need to type the < and > and this text)

So for example you have installed DiningHall you can open it with:

ChangeMap DiningHall

You will have to find out what the Names of the Servers are either by asking the map creator itself or reading the description.

KnightofOlde @knightofolde

what about certain maps that are stuck on preparing to download?

chhrisiotkerson @chhrisiotkerson

@knighttofolde Are you hosting a server or do you have a problem joining?

Eldasck @ya-ebanulsa

I just can instal mods, i subscribe and nothing

chhrisiotkerson @chhrisiotkerson

Eldasck did you put in the token? and restarted your server after putting it in?

Eldasck @ya-ebanulsa

Np, i not have server, i cant play on mod server, i cant download mods, i dont know why

chhrisiotkerson @chhrisiotkerson

If you are not a Server Owner you should not use It's for server owners only. You just join a server and it will automatically download the mods for you.
