    It is very easy to get this one confused. On this website the description states "Create (a) Forge Map" - while in reality the achievement is for creating (50) forge maps - at least according to the Xbox App after I unlocked the achievement...

    The best method indeed is to place a prop down and then use CTRL + D to replicate the object. If you keep an eye on the object counter you can easily tell when you have 50. Then I went in and "Saved as new" and named it. From there I just kept hitting CTRL + S.

    The achievement does not appear to be "bugged" in any way. It is just that people are saving after placing 50 props on a single maps, and are not getting the achievement. Each time you save (CTRL + S) it "creates" a new map, even though it doesn't create a new map file in "Your Files".

    Hopefully this helps, and hopefully the achievement description gets updated.

    adraedinThe line paragraph with "Each time you save (CTRL + S) it "creates" a new map, even though it doesn't create a new map file in "Your Files"." is a bit misleading - I suggest phrasing it more succinctly.

    As the other guide says - add/have 50+ props in your game, press ESC & hit SAVE MAP AS and then spam the save button for 3 minutes or so; it's not necessary to add 50 props into 50 separate games.

    Since the described method does not work anymore:

    I created a forge map from scratch and added 50 objects. I saved that map and started to spam ctrl-s. If this method does not work, try saving the same map with a different name! This worked for me :)

    psportalThis works with any map. Just make sure you add 50 props of your own; the preset props don't count towards the achievement.

    For example, the map I choose already 830 props. I just bumped up the count to 880 and THEN the achievement started to track.

    The save-spamming trick does work, however.
