Step 3

If it doesnt look like the picture above, then open the file and have a look to find a folder containing all of these files within.

Step 4

Create a new folder and name it what you want you world to be called, dont leave spaces within the name.

For example if I download a map for my spawn I might name it spawnworld

Step 5

Drag and drop all the files that match the picture above into your new folder, this is now the folder you will need to upload so you can go ahead and delete the first zip file your downloaded.

Step 6

Log onto your server files using FileZilla and simply drag your new folder from your pc side over to your servers main files.

Step 7

Now on your multicraft control panel, type the new world name just as you named it in the folder onto your world tab (it is case sensitive)

Once you’ve changed the name to the new map you want to use then tap save underneath and start your server back up.

If you rather carry on using your main world for a spawn and run a multiverse plugin then leave your world name as it is and you can run a /mv import (worldname) whilst in game
