Rename/Reupload Maps to the Vault (FAF Map editor)


I made a Map with FAF Map editor and uploaded it to the Vault.

Know i recognized a few things i want to there any Possibility to reuopload/rename my map?
It always says that my Map is already existing when i try to upload my new there anything i can do about?

And how can there be so many different versions of famous maps? How do the people rename it?

Moreover i find it strange that im not able to delete any uploaded Map, i just can Hide them...And if a Map is set to "hidden" i think there is no chance to get it back? Didnt find any setting for that...

Greetings Nils

You cannot remove maps for backwards compatibility - if you'd start a replay with a map but suddenly the map is missing and you don't have the map in question locally on your machine then the replay is broken!

From the top of my head: you can rename it via the Ozone editor by going to File -> Save as... and then choosing a folder with a different name.

If you want to update a map make sure to nudge the version number inside the Ozone editor by going to File -> Save as new version. This will make a new version of your map (along with the folder and other corrections) next to the original folder.

Also with regard to different versions of commonly played maps - that is technically against the vault rules 🙂 . Since biass took place as creative councilor about half a year back it is no longer allowed to make new versions of existing maps without explicit permission from the original author. The versions you see are from pre-biass time. For more information about the rules:

@Jip Hey Jip, thank you for your answer!
Now I understand a bit more why there is no way to delete a map and so on...

But my Problem is, that i cant update my own version in map vault, because even if i go "save as new version" FA recognizes that this map is already uploaded...
I can clearly see the second/new Version in map folder, but FA doesnt want it 😞

I know that the Vault is not for map testing purposes, but i spotted a few little things i would like to change...^^

The Link is great, thanks for that!
But i think i couldnt find a clear specific answer of my problem....I also thought that "save as new version" would work 😞


About what map are we talking? And can you give me a screenshot of the error in question produced by the client?

Maybe you can delete work-in-progress maps ? Also all replays are probably from the dev itself so they can be safely deleted too, cause there is 0 chance it's popular enough to be played.

@Jip I dont know why, but today it worked for me with "save as new version" the past i got always the failure message "Map_name.V0002 zip already exists", no matter what i tried...
Sounds stupid, but after trying it so often in the last days i dont know why it suddenly worked...^^ Hope i didnt waste your time...

Btw: Thank you for the Discord Link!
