Admin Panel Switch Map List is Wierd

I've got UMMs loaded on my server and have them listed in the [AAGame.AADataStore_OnlineGameSearch] section of the AAGame.ini (MapRotationList, and MapVoteList entries). These entries show up under correctly under the Call Vote Change Map and Set Next Map dialogs, but the list that shows up under the Admin Panel Switch Map dialog is doesn't have the same maps listed.

What .ini does the Admin Panel Switch Map get its list of maps from? How do I configure that list?

    admin pulls them from steam manager ugc, you can have maps there "on the server" that arnt in the rotation , so only admin can switch to them

    Thanks (Beer_me)lobo! I have confirmed this is true ... the Admin Panel - Switch Map map list is not affected by the .ini files. The list seems to be compiled from the .umap files the game can find on the server. It seems to search ../aapg/AAGame/CookedPC/Maps/
    and then
    ../aapg/Binaries/Win32/steamapps/workshop/content/203290/
    looking for all *valid* .umap files. Not sure what makes one valid or not-valid :angry:

    If it's in the server store at .../aapg/Binaries/Win32/steamapps/workshop/content/203290/ then it's literally loaded on the server. That's why it goes to the Admin list, and how it decides what's "valid.' It is on the server - VALID! :)

    It is removed from there if you delete the UGCmanager listing of it...

    out of date maps ( legacy/bin files) , weve also found map files in other map folders in the 203290 folder , so it pays to go through all your content folders in the 203290,
