Advanced server settings

How do I upload my own scenario?

  3. Before you continue, you should stop the server, as with any change to the server (in the web interface on our website, just click on the appropriate button at the top)
  4. Now establish a FTP connection to your server
    -> We recommend a program like FileZilla for the FTP connection
    -> You can also find more information about the FTP connection HERE

  5. Now upload the scenario to the following path on your server (right side in the FTP-Tool):
    -> /ConfigID/Content/Scenarios
  6. After uploading the scenario, you have to rename the uploaded folder to the following name
    -> The folder has the respective workshop ID of the scenario (you can also find the ID in the direct link to the workshop item)
    -> The folder must now be renamed to the name of the scenario (ex.: Reforged Eden)
