Map Conversion Guide

The guide below will teach you how to convert XML map files to YMAP.


Step 1)

  • Use Map Editor or Menyoo to create an XML map.

  • Ready!

Step 2)

  • Download XML to YMAP converter tool.
  • Export and open ME2YM.exe
  • Go to File > Open and open your XML map. (map.xml)
  • Go to Edit > Calc. Extents to calculate the boundaries of your map file.
  • Go to File > Export to export your map as a YMAP file. (Type the name only do NOT add extensions)
  • Your map file should look something like this. (map.ymap.xml)
Step 3)
  • Start OpenIV in edit mode.
  • Use the custom_maps DLC to install the map and finish the conversion.
  • Go to mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\custom_maps\dlc.rpf\x64\levels\gta5\_citye\maps\custom_maps.rpf\
  • Drop the map file into custom_maps.rpf to be converted. (map.ymap.xml)
  • Finished!
  • Drag your map out of OpenIV onto your Desktop or a folder. It will now be in the YMAP format.
  • Drop the YMAP file into the mb_maps resource to load maps onto your custom server.
  • Check for hash errors in the <archetypeName> space. Manually change hash to the model name. (0x000000)
