A map pack is a pack of maps (.bsp files).


To "install" a map pack, do the following:

  1. Note which game the map pack is for.
  2. Figure out which map appears to be the first one in the pack. (Usually it's the one with the lowest number.) Write this name down on paper for later.
  3. Copy the map (.bsp) files directly into the maps\ folder of the associated game. (<Installation path>\Steam\SteamApps\common\<game>\<game abbreviation>\maps\, for example C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\maps\.)
  4. If any node graph (.ain) files are present, copy them into the graphs\ subfolder of that maps\ folder.
  5. Start the associated game.
  6. Open the developer console.
  7. Type map <name of the first map> in the console to load the map.
