How to make a mod playable

I am new to modding and have only uploaded some maps. However, people seem to have a problem playing them. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thank you for your help.

you have to make sure u create a zip file with the right path
For example u want to make a datamod for the file empires2_x2_p1.dat

for the upload u have to zip it like this resources_common\dat\empires2_x2_p1.dat
So if people download the mod it will be extracted to
C:\Users\USERNAME\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\Long_ID\mods\subscribed\MODNAME\resources_common\dat

same for all other files u modify :slight_smile: i hope the example helps
download some maps from mods and see the folder structure in your modfolder so you know how to zip them before upload
Here a 2cond example
C:\Users\User\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\LONG_ID\mods\subscribed\20260_Hitch Map Pack\resources_common\random-map-scripts

Thank you for your reply! :pray: I had no idea that I had to use several folders. The maps are ok when I subscribe to them, so they should work for others as well. For the record the folders should be: resources\ _common\ scenario → map file, then ZIP it and upload.
