Valheim is one of those survival games that you always find yourself circling back to, whether it be due to a new update from Iron Gate Studio or just a random uptick in your Viking-related interests. The developer just released a new update for the game’s public test branch, and the patch notes detail the arrival of a much-awaited feature. With version 0.217.19 of Valheim, you can finally use world modifiers on dedicated servers.
That’s right. The first big bug-busting patch since Hildir’s Request was released is here and it packs quite the content-fueled punch. With a variety of fixes to already existing features such as the snapping system and some enemy overhauls, the new update is more than reason enough to hop back into your game. It’s also the perfect time to power up your dedicated server since you can now use world modifiers.
“One of the more notable fixes is of course the added functionality which lets you use the world modifiers on dedicated servers,” Iron Gate Studio writes alongside its patch notes. “World modifiers and presets can now be set to dedicated servers using parameters in the startup bat file or using the console as an admin.” This capability isn’t the only massive change, though. You’ll also notice some new buildable structures, like the blue standing brazier.
Building in-game is more comfortable overall, with smoother snap points and other such snapping-related tweaks. There are plenty of balance adjustments with 0.217.19, too, including some changes to enemy health. For instance, mini-bosses that spawn during Hildir events now have 50% less health.
