The lack of official support didn't stop crafty players from putting together a handful of Valheim mods that add small but welcome changes and tweaks to how the base game works. The keyword is customization, although that's likely bound to change as time passes, especially if the game maintains its current popularity.
Valheim Plus lets players customize various aspects of their survival experience, increasing the production rates of Fermenters, Furnaces, and Kilns, among others. It also allows you to change your character's weight values, the maximum number of players on a server, but also remove building deterioration resulting from weather.
It also adds a shared map system "that respects player map visibility settings," while giving you the option of reducing the weight of all items by a set percentage. If you're a fan of setting up your own home and base in Valheim, you'll also find its advanced building and editing modes quite useful. You can grab Valheim Plus from Nexus Mods.
In contrast to the mod above, Super Jump is a more focused offering. It essentially allows you to set the number of jumps your character can perform while in mid-air. You can opt for the traditional double jump, go higher, or even set it to infinite. Get it from Nexus Mods.
If you're looking to tweak the color, range, intensity, and shadow strength or torches and fire pits, the Torch mod has you covered. You can make them more efficient at piercing through the darkness or simply look prettier.
If you find yourself crafting a whole lot, one mod enables the use of resources found in nearby containers. Survival games can be quite harsh with the loot they dole out as you keep pushing forward. If Valheim feels like it's a bit on the punishing side, the Loot Multiplier mod lets you customize the amount of stuff you get when you destroy, kill or pick up something.
The Kat Edition mod brings another series of tweaks, including the removal of experience loss upon death, auto repair when using crafting station, and increased sneak speed. A first-person mod has also been released into the wild, although it's very much a work in progress at the moment.
Valheim's Improved Build HUD mod lets you know the maximum amount of items you can build alongside how many relevant resources you've stocked up.
The Equipment and Quick Slots mod then gives equipped items their own dedicated inventory slots while adding three quick slots with hotkeys. As tempting as it sounds, it's worth keeping in mind that some players have reported losing valuable items when using it and creator RandyKnapp warns that this is a potential outcome.
We wouldn't be surprised to see more Valheim mods pop up as the survival game's stay in Early Access continues, and we'll feature the more interesting ones in this article. In the meantime, check out the 2021 roadmap to see what's coming in future updates.
