The best Valheim mods

 First-person view, Sauron's tower, gameplay improvements, pre-built houses and other modifications for Valheim to look out for


Valheim made a splash on Twitch in February and burst into the top 5 most played games on Steam . Although it was made by only 5 people, and Valheim itself weighs less than 1 gigabyte, the game is full of interesting content and offers many possibilities . Here, for example, you can build beautiful Scandinavian-style wooden houses, upgrade your Viking's equipment, go sailing on a drakkar, fight ancient monsters, and look for tons of other adventures on your head.


As often happens in such a situation, Valheim immediately attracted the attention of modders: in just 3 weeks, more than 200 modifications were released on NexusMods. There are many ready-made houses among them, as well as various edits for Valheim and other gameplay improvements that will make your virtual life easier. We have selected the best mods.


BepInExPack Valheim - mod support



Author: denikson.

First, you need to prepare the game so that it can "pick up" third-party developments. This will require a special framework. The most popular one for today is BepInExPack Valheim. This is a new build of a framework for modding games on Unity.

  • Download the BepInExPack Valheim platformfor Valheim.
Installation: download the archive from the link above and unpack the contents of the BepInExPack_Valheim folder inside the archive into the root directory of the game.

Ivy's Texture Pack - improved textures

Ivy's Texture Pack - improved textures

Author: PoisonIvy.

Not everyone liked the graphics in Valheim (although you can get used to it pretty quickly). Landscapes look good, but the surfaces of objects close up are frustrating with oversized pixels. A modder under the nickname PoisonIvy is trying to fix this. So far, not all surfaces have been reworked, but those that have turned out now really look good (see illustrations above).

  • Download the Ivy's Texture Pack modfor Valheim.

Installation:

  1. First download the CustomTextures plugin and unpack it at Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins .
  2. Now download the archive from Ivy's Texture Pack and unzip it at Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins \ CustomTextures .

Improved Build HUD - improved building interface

Improved Build HUD - improved building interface

Author: RandyKnapp.

In the game, it is not always clear how many units of the necessary resources are in the inventory during construction. You have to double-check every time. With this mod, additional indicators with numbers in brackets will appear in the construction window: next to the name of the product - the maximum amount to create, and next to the required resources - how much is in the inventory. Very comfortably!

Installation: download the archive from the link above and unpack it to Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins .


Equipment and Quick Slots - Improved Inventory

Equipment and Quick Slots - Improved Inventory

Author: RandyKnapp.

Another important omission is that there are no separate slots for armor and other equipment in the game. Fortunately, with this modification, they will finally appear. Also on the keys Z, X and C it will be possible to assign a quick reception of potions.

  • Download the Equipment and Quick Slots modfor Valheim.
IMPORTANT: remove all armor from the character before installing the mod.

Also in Valheim it is difficult to get rid of an unnecessary item. You just have to throw it to the ground. And if you do this near the house or near the workshop, then the discarded items will randomly appear in the inventory. With this mod, it will be possible to destroy unnecessary junk by simply pressing Delete on your keyboard.

AutoMapPins - automatic marking of ores on the map

Author: bdew.

Many of the mods that make life easier in Valheim are downright cheating. But there are also just useful additions that add a little comfort. One of these is AutoMapPins. It automatically marks all discovered ore deposits on the map.

Installation: download the archive from the link above and unpack it to Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins .


First Person View - First Person Game

First Person View - First Person Game

Author: Kailen_.

Not all third-person games look good from the outside, as this was simply not considered during development. Fortunately, this does not seem to be the case for Vaheim. With this modification, archery and building will become much more convenient.

To go to the first person view in the game, you just need to zoom in as much as possible with the mouse wheel.

  • Download mod First Person View for Valheim.
Installation: download the archive from the link above and unpack it to Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins .

Clock - clock in the interface (or time of day)

Clock - clock in the interface (or time of day)

Author: aedenthorn.

As with most survivors, Valheim has to navigate in time by the Sun and Moon. After installing the Clock mod, a chronometer with minutes and hours will appear in the interface. But if this seems like cheating to you, then you can choose a descriptive option ("early morning", "late evening", etc.).

Installation: download the archive from the link above and unpack it to Valheim \ BepInEx \ Plugins .


Quick Stack - fast storage of resources
