How to release your map


Want to share your map with us? Proceed with the following steps!

 [*] Take screenshots by zooming out in the editor and pressing Print Screen (next to F12). Open MS Paint and press [Ctrl] + V. Save the picture. It'd be a good idea to edit the picture with a more advanced image editor, if you're not already saving in a different one from the start, so you can save it in a better file format.

[*] Get your map zipped 'n packed with the Soldat Map Packer or Maps/Prefabs Archiver.

[*] Instead of hosting it on a separate website, you can attach files to your forum posts; just click Additional Options... and you can stick one or two files right into the post.

[*] You could also host your map completely on sites like the
The Mapping Showcase, Soldat Mappers' League [defunct], or on the SoldatPage. If you do so, skip the next two steps.

[*] Take screenshots and upload them to ImageShack, TinyPic, or some other image-hosting site.

[*] Upload your map file (.ZIP, .RAR, etc.) to (Links all dead) m00net, Leo's uploader, R5000's uploader,, or your own choice of file-hosting website.

[*] Make a topic about it in the New maps section.[/list]
