Frequently Asked Questions
Will my custom made content appear on another computer?
Unfortunately locally created items are not saved to the game's steam cloud and therefore will not be available if the user switches computers. All locally created items will be replaced with temporary placeholder items within the game, however will revert back to their original state when the user switches back to their original computer.
If I get a new computer, will I lose all of my created items?
As explained above locally created items are not saved to the cloud and therefore will not be available on a new computer. However, by making a backup copy of your "Localmods" folder and copying it over to your new computer, you can keep all of your locally created items.
The folder can be found here:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\LocalLow\Two Point Studios\Two Point Hospital
~/.config/unity3d/Two Point Studios/Two Point Hospital
I'm having an issue uploading a picture. What can I do?
It's possible that the workshop feature doesn't support the image that you are attempting to upload. For recommended image sizes and formats please see the Image Recommendations page.
Can I publish Sandbox hospitals with locally created items in them?
Again, due to locally made items not being saved to the cloud, any locally made items within a sandbox hospital will not be published along with the hospital. If the user is planning to publish a sandbox hospital, we recommend only using items subscribed from the steam workshop within that hospital.
Can I subscribe to my own published items?
Yes, users are more than welcome to subscribe to their own published items. Though this will create two versions of that item within the user's "Items" list. The subscribed version of the item will have the workshop icon next to it letting the user differentiate between the two. In addition, the subscribed version of the item can be used in Sandbox hospitals the user wishes to publish.
When creating a bundle, can i cut and paste my item's folder rather than copying and pasting?'
Copying and pasting an item's folder into a bundle folder will create two instances of that item within the "Items" menu. Cutting and pasting the item's folder can be used as an alternative to avoid this. However, in order to cut and paste, users will need to make sure that there are no instances of the item placed within any hospital in game. This is because, once the item folder has been cut and pasted, the original item file will no longer exist. As a result, any instances of that item placed within hospitals will be replaced with temporary placeholder items.
If I've copied and pasted files into my bundle folder, can i delete the bundle folder after it's been published to avoid cluttering my "Items" list?'
Users can delete the bundle's folder to avoid cluttering their "Items" list. This will remove the copies from the list, however the user will not be able to add more items to the bundle or edit the bundle through the "Two Point Hospital" application once it has been deleted. Users will still be able to edit the bundle's title and description through the steam workshop page.
