"Remember to put a witty tagline here!" – 2022 edition.

Community Blog #001

This is the community blog! The community blog intends to explore every facet of the community, and share the amazing things that you guys have done with the game.


We don’t care when or how it was made, we just want to show some of the community’s cool stuff to the rest of you cool people. All of the original content is linked back to through either text or by clicking on some of the images.

The community blog will not be taking away from anything, just adding on! While it’ll primarily focus on showing the going-ons in the community, sometimes it will feature community events or link back to recent interviews and such too.

Community blog posts are planned to at least come out monthly, on Fridays, and help fill the gap between “mainline” blog posts (like the Unturned II Devlog).

Four unique styles, Four great artworks

Everyone has their own preferred style and technique, and their own ways of expressing their own creativity. Below we have four different styles, with four different techniques.

Not everything will be to your taste, but all the effort they've all put into their work is commendable.

I particularly like Youkushuijing's work, although I'm biased towards anything with a scarf. If you like any of their Unturned stuff, I recommend looking at what other games they've created artwork for too!

Creator Spotlight – Rice Chef

Rice Chef used to make videos, until he didn't. Now he's back, and he's recently reuploaded some of his older content too!

Mods, mods, mods!

There's mods for every kind of person—from makeshift handguns and craftable shorts, to French tanks and more bridge map objects, there's something for everyone out there.

All of the mods featured above also really focus on reproducing Unturned's artstyle too, if that's your thing.

Curated Map – Dango

Daniel "Danaby2" has been working on Dango—the next curated map for Unturned. You may recognize that Danaby, as he also created popular arena maps like Canyon Arena.

Update's trailer, featuring the Dango map.

Dango is not a traditional arena map. Instead, Danaby has created a custom gamemode called "Deathmatch". It feels similar to arena – but instead of players being sent back into a lobby upon death, they'll instead get to just respawn and hop straight back in to the fun.

Dango released today, with update Enjoying the map? Visit the Stockpile to support the creators!
