How to Add a Custom Map to Your Rust Server

If you want to use custom maps on your Rust server hosting, you'll need to use the RustEdit Oxide extension.

This article assumes you already have Oxide installed.

  1. Download the RustEdit Oxide extension, located here. The file you downloaded should be called Oxide.Ext.RustEdit.dll.
  2. On your control panel, navigate to the File Manager
  3. Upload Oxide.Ext.RustEdit.dllto the /RustDedicated_Data/Managed/ folder.
  4. After the extension has finished uploading, navigate to the /server/my_server_identity/cfg/ folder and edit the server.cfg file. If it doesn't exist, create it.
  5. At the bottom of your server.cfg, add a new line and add the text levelurl "(url)", replacing the (url) with a direct download link to your custom map file. An example configuration has been provided below:
server.description "Welcome to my Rust server!"
server.url "https://discord.gg/"
levelurl "https://www.dropbox.com/"

You can use a service like Dropbox to upload your map file and generate a direct link. Simply upload the file to Dropbox, then create a share link by clicking the "Share" button followed by "Create Link". Paste that generated link into your server.cfg, replacing the ?dl=0 with ?dl=1 as shown in the example.

Save the changes you've made to the server.cfgfile, then restart your server. Your server should now load with the custom map that you added.
