Upload a Map or Existing World to Your 7 Days to Die Server

Uploading a custom world to your server is a great way to transfer your progress from a single-player world.
In addition, uploading a custom world or custom seed is super easy to do.

Before getting started, it is important to know the difference between a generation map and an existing world. A generation map is specific image data that determines how a world is generated. While a world is a directory containing all world data such as player inventories and structures after the chunk has been generated.

UPLOADING AN EXISTING WORLD TO YOUR SERVER

Before uploading your new world, you will want to ensure that your world is working in single-player first. Singleplayer worlds are located under: C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/7DaysToDie/Saves/<mapname>

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Login to your server via FTP (we recommend using FileZilla for this).
  3. Navigate to the /Saves/<mapname> directory and upload your world folder here.
  4. Now go back to your Multicraft Panel, navigate to Files > Config Files.
  5. On the Config Files page, select 7 Days To Die Server Settings

  6. Set the gameworld property to the name of the generation map such as Navezgane, PREGEN01, …

  7. Set the gamename property to the name of the world such as world, myworld, …

  8. As final outcome, you should now have your world located under the path /Saves/<gameworld>/<gamename>
  9. Now set the WorldGenSeed and WorldGenSize properties to the same values used at the creation of the map.
  10. Once set, at the bottom of the page, click the save button.
  11. If using a custom generated world, or if you have a generatedWorld folder present in your local gamefolder, continue to the second step of this article.

You can have as many world files in the worlds directory as you want - you can then change between these worlds by simply changing what world is selected in your 7daystodie.properties file.

UPLOADING A GENERATION MAP TO YOUR SERVER

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Download the generation map you wish to use, or navigate to your local game's generatedWorld folder.
  3. Login to your server via FTP (we recommend using FileZilla).
  4. Navigate to the /Data/Worlds directory and upload your map folder here.
  5. Now go back to your Multicraft Panel, navigate to Files > Config Files.
  6. On the Config Files page, select 7 Days To Die Server Settings
  7. Set your gameworld to your mapname.
  8. Once set, at the bottom of the page, click the Save button.
  9. Start the server from your control panel.
