General FAQ

  1. My maps do not show up in the maps menu, what is wrong?
    • Nothing is wrong actually. The maps menu only lists only the official maps the game contains, in order to keep it clean, fast, and in order. To view your custom maps, all you need to do is type /showcustommaps and another menu will pop up which will contain all the custom maps found within your game.
  2. My textures do not show up in the texture browser, what am i doing wrong?
    • The textures defined in the texture browser are executed through default_map_settings.cfg, a config file located in the data folder. Placing a texture pack in the packages folder won't magically add it to the texture browser. In order for your custom textures to appear in the texture browser, you need to define your very own map config, and execute the texture pack's config from within it. If all is done correctly, the new textures will appear after the end of the default ones.
    • In case your textures really don't show up in the browser, it could mean you've made a mistake. Most common problems are mistyped file names, or wrong paths. Sometimes the format might even be wrong or unsupported, or the image its self could be corrupt. Make sure these cases are covered before asking for further help from someone.

How-To Guides

  1. Using custom texture packs
    • Texture packs usually come in their own directories along with a config named package.cfg which contains the order of texture, shader definitions and texture map usage. A texture pack cannot really be installed, since its advised NOT to modify the default_map_settings.cfg. The best and most compatible for everyone way is to execute the texture pack through your map's config file. This consists of adding a simple exec "path/package.cfg" line within the config, and then loading the map in order for the textures of the texture pack to appear in the browser.
