Uploading Your Map Mod
1) Create a folder (anywhere for now, desktop is handy) with the name of your mod (e.g BedfordFalls), place your mods preview picture (named preview.png) and a .txt file called "Workshop" which includes the following code:

version=1
title=Your Mod Name Here
description=Your mod description here
description=Second line of your mod description here (you can add more description= lines if you like)
tags=
visibility=public


then save the file.

2) Within the same folder as these 2 files create a new folder called "Contents", and inside the Contents folder add another folder called "mods". Inside the mods folder add another folder with the name of your mod (e.g. Bedford Falls). Inside this folder place a picture of your mod called "poster.png along with a text file named "mod.info" (change the .txt file extension to .info) which contains the following code:

name=The Name Of Your Mod Here
id=The Name Of the First Folder You Created Here (e.g. BedfordFalls)
description=Description Of Mod Here
poster=poster.png


then save the file.

3) In the same folder as these files create a new folder called "media", and in that folder, another folder called "maps", inside this folder create one last folder with the same name as the first folder you created (e.g. BedfordFalls), inside this folder is where you will place all of your lotheader, lotpack and chunkdata files, along with a thumbnail of your mod named "thumb.png", your "objects.lua" file for your map, your "spawnpoints.lua" file for your map and your "map.info" file containing:

title=Name Of Your Mod Here
lots=Muldraugh, KY
description=Description Of Your Mod Here


4) Once this is done cut/copy/paste the entire thing into your C":\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid\Workshop" folder and load up PZ. Click the "Workshop" button towards the bottom left and the click "create and update items", then select your mod (if it doesnt show dbl check you added it to the correct folder which will be shown at the top of the screen). Make sure the items details are correct and then press next, your mod will then be uploaded to steam workshop (wait for the upload confirmation)and should be viewable within the hour.
You now have a map mod on steam workshop!

5) Anytime you update your mod, simply copy/paste the updated files over the existing ones in your "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid\Workshop" folder and follow step 4 again, anyone subscribes will have the update pop up in their downloads automatically.
