Valheim Plus

Introduction to Valheim Plus

A HarmonyX Mod aimed at improving the gameplay quality of Valheim. The mod includes several different main features that allow users to modify the stats of players, buildings and entities. Valheim Plus also offers players the ability to build and place objects with very high precision through a sophisticated system, as well as tweaking and modifying already placed objects with equal precision. The goal is to provide V+ as a base modification for Valheim to increase quality of life, tweak the game’s difficulty, and in general, improve the player’s experience. Valheim Plus also comes with a version and configuration control system for servers and users, enabling server owners to ensure that only players with the same configuration are able to join the server.

All features can be enabled and tweaked through the V+ config file.

Then Valheim can be started and the setup at the client is finished.

~~That means, you – as a server admin – have to share your “valheim_plus.cfg” with your players, so they can drag the config into the Valheim Steam folder and then into the subfolder BepInEx\config\valheim_plus.cfg. ~~

Valheim’s incompatible version error and fixing it

Valheim’s incompatible version error is caused by a mismatch between the game file versions on the player’s end and the remote server’s end. The best way to overcome this issue at the earliest is by updating the player’s game files to the remote server’s game version.

Players can update their game files by running the auto-update feature on Steam. If a player does not have automatic updates enabled, they can do so by following a few simple steps:

  • Right-click on Valheim in the player’s Steam library
  • Click on “Properties” from the drop-down menu.
  • Click on the “Updates” tab and download any pending updates

This will allow the player to update their game files to the latest version of Valheim.

Once the player has successfully updated their game files, they will need to ensure that the remote server is also updated to the latest version. Normally, Steam suggests the player update the Valheim servers every time they update the game.
