Creating and Updating Workshop Items
To create a new workshop item you need to author a new json file or modify the template provided:

{ "Title": "New Item", "Description": "My new item description", "ChangeNote": "Version 1.0", "PreviewFile": "C:\\Test\\Preview.jpg", "ContentPath": "C:\\Test", "PublishedFileId": 0, "Tags": [ "Localization", "Another tag" ] }
  • File and folder paths must be absolute paths and slashes must be escaped.
  • All text should be plain text with no special characters.
  • Preview images MUST be <1MB.

To create a new item:
PublishedFileId must be unset or 0.
Note: PublishedFileId value will be updated in json file on successful creation of a new workshop item.

To update an existing item:
PublishedFileId must be set to the existing item's id.

Use the workshop tool to run the upload_item command, specifying the absolute path to your json file:

Workshop>upload_item “C:\My Test.json”

Newly created items can take a few minutes to appear in the workshop. Don’t be surprised if it doesn’t show up immediately in the workshop.

My Anti Virus is picking this up as a Trojan when I try to run this.

I am not a game dev. This is absolutely useless. I like the game lately, but the latest stable patch is not available for me, and this workshop option is a complete shot in the dark. Get it to work on steam.

Frustrating as fuck!

I guess I'll have to wait until they publish a video showing how to do it, or maybe implement an efficient and easy way to publish maps like literally every other game has..?
