So paths such as /maps/my_map/my_map.vpk are **not valid**.⤶ * The addon shortname needs to be the **exact same** as the vpk name.⤶ * The Zip itself should directly contain folders such as /maps, /materials, /models etc, no other subfolders before these.⤶ ⤶ ⤶ <warning>Renaming a vpk will break it, you'll need to either recompile your map under a new name or upload to a new addon if there is a naming mismatch!</warning>
