Is referencing The Island still required?

Hey Folks,
When creating a standard mod. Is referencing ‘The Island’ as a force load in the level world details still required? I ask because wouldn’t that exclude use on custom maps?

It was never “required” as far as I know… that’s just what it defaulted to in GenericMod which is where most get their base files from. To answer your question, it is not needed, and yes it will disable use on custom maps.


Not adding it and leaving it blank will also forward you to The Island. But yeah, right now its kinda hard to get a mod running while playing on a custom map without making a new entry level that is loading your gamedata and forceloading a new level.
