I created a custom gazebo world for my turtleBot constaining several walls and saved it as a .world file. However when I run the world file using the command

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch world_file:=/home/PI/turtlebot_custom_gazebo_worlds/

the walls that i created do not load. just the turtlebot loads. the process in the terminal starts without giving any error. when i check the .world file the code related to the walls is clearly present.

Might be a bug in your world file. Can you post the file?

Maybe copying the model that represents the walls to ~/.gazebo would solve the problem.

Sorry, silly mistake. The path to the world file was incorrect. It was not loading the custom world and just reverting to the default world without giving a traceback!
