Hosting custom maps

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I own a cod4x 1.8 server and it is hosted by a server hosting company. I would like to add a few custom maps to the server, I have downloaded the custom map files and have uploaded them to the usermaps folder of the server and have updated the server.cfg but the server doesn't load these maps and says a mod is needed. Can you guys please guide me on how to install and run these custom maps?

actually no mod is needed to run custom maps but you must call it as a mod


I use the following for my sniper server
I made a directory in mods called sniper
in there i put just my server config called sniper.cfg which contains
among other server items this

// Client Downloadsettings (0=off/1=on)
set sv_allowdownload "1"
set sv_wwwDownload "1"
set sv_wwwbaseurl "http://www.name.com" ///your map host adress
set sv_wwwDlDisconnected "0"


I then call it like you would any other mod  on my startup
D:\cod4x2\cod4x18_dedrun.exe +set fs_game mods/sniper +exec sniper.cfg +set net_port 28960 +map_rotate

 

it will act as a mod without having to download an actual mod but will allow downloading of custom maps

Thank you for your reply. Incidentally my server is also sniper only ans is based in India. I'm sorry but I don't understand the last step about the mod on the startup, what exactly am i supposed to do? Sorry this is my first experience with owning a server and modding. Could you also pls tell me what all custom maps you have installed on your server?

the above example is if you run a server  on your own computer

below is an example of how I would run it on a paid server using escape turkey (my provider) in the control panel

Call Of Duty 4
b3_xml_file_location="/b3/b3k.xml"
server_exec="cod4_lnxded-bin"
game_directory="cod4"
server_mod_directory="mods/sniper"
server_port="28960"
rcon_password="put rcon password here"
server_log_name="games_mp.log"
server_vm=""
server_dedicated="2"
server_ip="108.178.55.6"
server_sv_maxclients="64"
server_logfile="3"
server_sv_pure="1"
server_sv_punkbuster="0"
server_config1="sniper.cfg"
start_map="mp_crash"
username="your assigned username"

not knowing how you run your server is hard to tell you what you need.

Thank you, that was really helpful. I've rented a server from a company called smvhost. I will try what you have said and get back to you with the result.
