Valheim content update!

Post by Boss Llama » Tue Mar 01, 2022 8:44 am

Valheim just dropped a big shiny new patch with a heap more content! What's more, because the content is focused on the Mountain biome, and we haven't really gotten into those yet on our brand new server, it all should generate without issue on our current map! Patch includes...

New Content
* Frost Caves added as a new dungeon
* New enemies: Ulv, Cultist, Bat
* New crafting materials: Red jute, Fenring hair, Fenring claw
* New armour set: Fenris Coat, Fenris Leggings, Fenris Hood (equip all at once for an extra bonus!)
* New weapon: Flesh Rippers (Fists)
* New build pieces: Red jute carpet, Red jute curtain, Standing brazier
* New event: “You stirred the cauldron”

Other items:
Fixes & Improvements:
* FPS limiter setting and option to reduce GPU usage when minimised, menu FPS capped to 60
* Various console command improvements and additions, see console ‘help’
* Fixed some dungeon parts not being fully deterministic (ends)
* Nomap mode improvements (vegvisr alternative, nomap is server setting, max distance for shouting, random build/spawn rotation, ‘noportals’ command)
* Resolution now only shows refresh rate when forcing exclusive fullscreen
* Various UI fixes
* Changed name of Unarmed skill to Fists
* Helmets covering the player character’s face should now hide beard
* “Reduce background performance” is available as a setting
* Recipes for Jack-o-turnip + Yule stuff disabled

Quality of Life:
* Building marker is more subtle and indicates piece rotation
* Corpse run gives carry weight bonus to compensate for unequipped belt
* Crafting stackable items while having full inventory now possible if there are are available stack slots
* Fixed a bug where sometimes stackable items won’t be taken when having full inventory and pressing ‘Take All’ in a chest
* Chat can now be closed using esc, mouse or gamepad B

Gamepad support:
* Full controller support!
* Controller legend visible in pause menu and settings
* Controller text input when running in Steam big picture mode. Chat, characters, signs, pets etc can now be named using the controller.
* Controller mapping of all game features
* Context menus will now always show controller buttons when using controller
* Alternative controller glyph style option
* Skills window scrollable with gamepad
* Crafting can be cancelled if pressing the button again (like with mouse)
* Fixed some missing/misplaced gamepad tooltips

Steam Deck:
* Steam Deck controller layout shows when playing on Steam Deck
* Loads default settings catered to the Steam Deck

* Improvements for several community translated languages
