    Sharing Maps and Prefabs
    So you've got an awesome map or prefab that you want to share with the world but don't know how?

    First, make sure it's saved in either Documents\Guncraft\Maps (for maps) or Documents\Guncraft\Prefabs (for prefabs). Now load it up and take a screenshot of it to use as your preview image. You can press F6 to remove the UI in game.

    Now go to Foundry->Steam Workshop and go to the Maps/Prefabs tab, select the one you want and click share.

    Type a description, choose your preview image and select what visibility you want your workshop item to have.

    Once you've got that all ready to go, select Share. Guncraft will open up the Steam overlay to your new workshop item and have a message at the top of the screen once it's done.

    If you ever want to update your file, go back to the workshop screen, select the item and choose Update.

    Select your preview image and visibility, then click on the name of the updated map

    Sharing Guns and Skins
    You made a sweet gun or skin that everybody should be playing with? Here's how to share it.

    If it hasn't been approved yet, then you need to wait until it has been, we don't want people sharing guns that others can't use. Once it's approved go to Foundry->Steam Workshop and go to the Custom Guns/Custom Skins tab and select the one you want to share.

    You don't need a preview image for guns or skins, we generate that for you. Just write your description, choose your visibility and share.

    Updating skins works the same as updating maps and prefabs. Guns can only be updated if they need to be rebalanced. Go to the Custom Guns tab and select Rebalance.

    This will take you to the stats screen. Choose your new stats and select Finalize Stats. This will update the gun in your inventory so you can use it again and, if it's been shared on Workshop, will also update the workshop item.
