You can play unzipped maps except in multi-player mode. It will do no harm. Evidently the zip file name is not correct or you have not selected the proper zip type. Winrar use rar format as default and you need to select regular zip

What is Windows default zipping format I don't have winrar this is how I do it I select all the folders that I want to be zipped together and I click on the share tab then I click on the zip icon. That is how I have been told to do it by other people on this site

Make sure you don't have an extra level of folders, as in if you unzip the file you just zipped, do you have another folder named "states" or  do you see the map folders (i.e. fruithuds, map, scripts, etc...).  If you have an extra folder in there you need to redo your zip and get ride of that level of folders.

Open the file you want zipped, select all files in the folder, then right click and select " send to" then select "Compressed (zipped) folder.
After compressing, find the zipped file you just made in the folders you just zipped, rename it to exactly the same name as the original folder, then " cut and paste" the new folder into your mods folder.
Make sure to remove the original mod from the mods folder.
