When playing vanilla Conan Exiles, playing the normal maps may become tiresome. Due to vanilla having static maps, the developers can focus on adding more details, but some players may desire something new. Thankfully, custom maps are available from the Steam Workshop, allowing you to change your server’s map. Installing a custom map can be quite tricky at first, so we have created this Apex Hosting guide to ease you through the setup process.

Once the workshop content is fully installed through Steam, you can start Conan Exiles and wait for the launcher to open!
From here, you will need to upload the map’s mod file. For a more in-depth guide on installing mods, visit our page here.

Once the mod is uploaded and the map is ready, return to the main panel page and start up the server for use!
The map is not loading:
There are many reasons that the map may not be loading. Ensure that the modlist.txt file is properly filled out and that the .pak file is inside of the /ConanSandbox/Mods/ folder or it will not work. Once done, try to restart once again and see if anything changes.
I see a custom map logo, but the world isn’t correct:
Oftentimes, this occurs because the custom world was not properly set within the customizations area. Each map has a unique name that must be entered. If you are unsure, try the name of the .pak file. Otherwise, check the workshop page’s description to see if it specifies a map name.
It seems to work, but I can’t join:
If you are unable to join, we recommend checking for errors that you may receive. New players may receive an error that they don’t have the required mods installed. To fix this, players can check the option to download mods automatically or download them manually. Once complete, restart the game and try again.
