Introduction

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 Mordhau.mod.io

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 mod.io 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:

/Script/Mordhau.MordhauGameSession

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 mod.io 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.


End

Thanks for reading my Guide.

I hope I could help you setting up your Server.

KnightofOlde @knightofolde

chhrisiotkerson @chhrisiotkerson

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

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

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

this guide doesnt work. I put the Auth code in the correct spot and nothing happens
maps are all downloaded but the sever wont switch to that map
==========================================================
I have the same problem.. I can download my custom map, you can see my SSD space decreased 59gb>58gb. But when it's finished he reset. ( see pictures)
There is no .pak inside the \Mordhau\Content\.modio\mods, only my: modio.json. When I add manually my .pak file into it, it will work.
Is it maybe because my map is 2.5 GB ? is it too much for the mordhau servers? Imgur.com

I hope there comes a hotfix asap. Because it sucks now very hard, I spend around 120 hours into my map, and now it's unplayable.

Thanks for the guide! Could you also show us how to place custom maps into the rotation, and change the default map?

Hi,
I'm in trouble. I have a dedicated server, and i don't understand how to add a custom map. I follow your guide but when i paste the "ServModAuthToken" i can't see my server on Mordhau.

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
Sorry, I am an Asian player. My English is not very good.
What is this doing? Why are the maps I downloaded are .pak instead of .uexp or .uasset
希望 有教學視頻
Hope there is a teaching video
謝謝你

Are you a server owner or only a player ?

my sv admin

TAIWAN @taiwan

每當伺服器重開 他又重新下載一樣的mod都要等待一段時間 我的sv才會讀取完畢
是否能修復這問題
Whenever the server is reopened, he will re-download the same mod and wait for a while. My sv will be read.
Can you fix this problem?

TAIWAN
TAIWAN @taiwan

照理來將它不應該下載本來就已經下載好的mod
It is reasonable to not download the mod that has been downloaded.

TAIWAN
TAIWAN @taiwan

尤其當你訂閱大量地圖
你的伺服器必須要等待一段很久時間
因為他們正在做重複的下載
導致伺服器讀取 更久要等下載完畢才能賭取完
你才會在客戶端看到你的伺服器出現
Especially when you subscribe to a lot of maps
Your server has to wait for a long time
Because they are doing repeated downloads
Cause the server to read longer. Wait until the download is complete before you can finish the bet.
You will see your server appear on the client side.

I'm not getting that "huge text" part either. Does anyone know how to fix that?
