wkRandomMap is a WormKit module that allows you to download a random map from WMDB right from map selection screen. The map being downloaded is random but with certain parameters, like type of the map.

Since W:A version using this module is deprecated, use wkWMDB instead.


  • Downloading map right before playing
  • Map name, type, author is displayed while downloading
  • All downloaded maps are saved in history folder, separated by map type
  • Customisable parameters of maps to choose


  • While downloading is in process, the game freezes, and the download progress cannot be stopped (You see progress while downloading)
  • If WMDB site changes its design, the module may stop working.

Creating custom search parameters

  • First of all, go to WMDB.org and make a search of the maps you want to. For example you may search for a map of certain type (e.g. Shoppa) and certain features (e.g. "good graphics")
  • Create a file with any name and ".PnG" extension (Case sensitive, this is important!)
  • Open this file with notepad and write:
    • LOAD xxx
    • where xxx is copied part of URL started with "/Maps/..." (First slash is required)
  • Put this file into WA/User/SavedLevels/ folder to make it accessible from ingame


File named

Random Shoppa with good graphics.PnG

containing string

LOAD /maps/?map[type]=shopper&map[feature_graphics]=1

while opening in W:A will turn into random shoppa map with good graphics
