    Hey guys!

    Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to install Unturned Custom maps on OSX/Mac/Apple computers;

    Step 1: Open steam and go to library.
    Step 2: Right click (ctrl + click for macbook users;)) on Unturned and select Properties.
    Step 3: Go to the local files tab and press "search in local files" A finder window will pop up.
    Step 4: Open the folder "Maps" here you will find all your current maps.
    Step 5: Download your Custom Map if you haven't already, make sure it is a folder
    (If it isn't a folder but a .zip or a .rar, use a program like Unzip or Unrarx to turn it into a folder!)
    Step 6: Open you downloaded folder, and check if there are files in there like level.dat and Thumbs.tb
    This step is just to make sure that you have the map itself, because in some cases you find inside the folder you download another folder with the Custom Map, and also an install guide.
    Step 7: Place the whole folder of the Custom Map inside the "Maps" (<- the folder you opened in steps 1 to 4)
    Step 8: Close the Finder-Window
    Step 9: Open steam and run Unturned

    This is single player only, if you want to know how to do this with you server, just ask me and i'll make another Thread.

    Have fun playing you Custom Map!

    Just open your Commands.dat which is inside the server folder (if you have a server of course :p) search for the word "map" and change the name behind this to the map you want to change it into. You must have the map inside you "maps" folder (Where to find this folder is in the tutorial)
    For example: I currently have the devtest map as my server map, so what I will find inside my Commands.dat is: map Devtest
    If I want to change this to Devtest 2 (Which I have installed) I just replace "Devtest" with "Devtest 2" (so: map Devtest 2)

    Hi there joinho. I tried doing this but there must have been an update or something because all I saw was:

    Bundles (Folder)
    install_304930.vdf
    steam_appid.txt
    Unturned (Application)

    When I sifted through Bundles there was a folder called Levels and so I tried installing a map (Eagle Island) by dragging the folder into Levels. Nothing happened though. Please help! Thanks

    You're probably playing on a 2.0 version of Unturned. Unturned 2.0 doesn't support custom maps.

    Very nice, and I'm sure many will appreciate this in the long run, but maybe to liven it up some; perhaps post some pictures or maybe record a video of yourself doing these steps!

    For some reason, when I go to single player and click on the custom map I want to play on and hit play, it goes to the loading screen and the loading bar loads all the way, but then unturned quits responding and freezes...:/ Idk if anyone else is having this problem, but if there is a fix I would be much appreciative to hear it!

    @DippyC, @fierce_hen this means you're still on the 2.2.5 version - through steam you can use the beta code OPERATIONMAPLELEAF to access the 3.X preview.

    @BobaTheFett you will likely get a better response from posting to the support forum - I'm curious to get a hold of the log to see what the issue is

    Cheers guys
