If you’re looking for custom maps, mods, music, art, animations, tutorials or more just search for it using our product search widget located on our menu or you can browse the product categories if you like.

We use PayPal as our payment processor, but you DO NOT need PayPal just to make a purchase, you can choose debit/credit through the PayPal interface when checking out.

*Please read the description on any product before purchasing and follow the directions of the seller to make sure you get exactly what you want. You can send them pics and descriptions of whatever you like in order to get exactly what you want.

Please Use Our Marketplace Instead of Privately Paying the Seller: This is to ensure your safety and security of purchase.

Shipping and Handling is included with all physical products and shipped worldwide per seller’s option.

Refunds: We do not collect any of the money except a small transaction fee. If you need a refund, please contact the seller for one. If you are having trouble contacting the seller, we can provide their email per receipt of purchase. Any refund must be claimed 30 days after purchase or refund will not apply.

Legal: You promise not to sell whatever you purchase. Whatever you purchase must be custom made for you. Remember you are not buying a product, you’re buying a service.

When you ‘buy’ an item, you’re paying a price to the author for the right to use that item; you’re not actually buying the item itself. What you get includes a Licence directly from the author to use that item. Items are subject to specific terms of use, and these terms are the ‘license’ that we set on behalf of authors.
