    Simply place any file named .unlocker into the map directory (the one that contains Level.dat file).

    As easy as pie.

    P.S. If Windows Explorer tells you that "You must type a file name" look up for possible solutions here: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=windows+dot+file

    PEI in editor (sorry for JPEG, Imgur converts large PNG's to JPEG automatically):

    So .unlocker can be any type of file? How do we get a default file like you have in the image above?

    The content of the file does not matter, what matters is the file name itself (e.g. you can rename Breaking.Bad.S01E01.720p.HDTV.x264.mkv into .unlocker and it'll work).

    If Windows Explorer gives you an error when you try to rename the file, read this: http://unturned.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_unlock_any_map

    Well then I can say text files don't work if it's titled .unlocker or not.

    You probably have "Hide extensions for known file types" enabled in your Windows Explorer, so the file .unlocker.txt you created shows up as .unlocker, which is not the same thing at all.
