Why Install a Map on Your GMod Server?

When first joining a GMod server, you are spawned into the default map Flatgrass. As this world is default and pretty bland, you may want to add your own custom map to your GMod server. This can be done pretty easily whether you are grabbing a map that you found online or if you have created your own map. In this guide, we will be teaching you how you can add a custom map on your GMod server.

How to Upload a Map

  1. Login to your FTP
  2. Go in to “Garry’s Mod” > “maps” 
  3. Upload your files to the “maps” folder.

How to change the map on the server

  1. Login to your Control panel
  2. Go in to “Configuration” > “Startup Parameters”
  3. Change the current map “gm_flatgrass” to your map name.
