Configuration File
The Config file name is supposed to be “valheim_plus.cfg” and it needs to be placed in “BepInExconfig”.

You can turn off and on every feature of V+ via the config file, by default all settings are turned off.

When hosting a server, the server configuration file overwrites the client’s configuration file on connect.

Only the server configuration file (located in the server files) needs to be set up when hosting a server with V+.

When hosting for other players over steam, every player will need v+ and they will receive the local settings from the host’s game folder.

Valheim also changes the time for items to despawn after they are dropped on the ground.

2. Extract the contents of the .zip file into your root server folder.
3. Open valheim_plus.cfg under BepInExconfig with any text editor and configure the mod to your needs.

Please read the section about Server Config & Version Control (About Version Enforcement) below.

Unix

Game

1. Download the [latest package called UnixServer.zip over this link](https://github.com/valheimPlus/ValheimPlus/releases/latest/). (Scroll down and click “assets”)
2. Locate your game folder manually or start Steam client and right-click the Valheim game in your Steam library and select Manage -> browse local files for Steam to open your game folder.
3. Extract the contents of the archive into the game folder.
4. Make sure to run ‘chmod u+x start_game_bepinex.sh’ to make the start script executable.
5. Right-click the Valheim game in your Steam library.
6. Go to “Properties…” -> “Launch options” and input “./start_game_bepinex.sh %command%”.

Server

This guide does not cover how to create a dedicated server. These are the steps to install the mod:

1. Download the [latest package called UnixServer.zip over this link](https://github.com/valheimPlus/ValheimPlus/releases/latest/). (Scroll down and click “assets”)
2. Extract the contents of the .zip file into your root server folder.
3. Make sure to run ‘chmod u+x start_server_bepinex.sh’ to make the start script executable.
4. Make sure that all uploaded files belong to the owner and group who owns and starts the Valheim server, e.g ‘chown -R steam:steam ./valheim/
5. Configure server startup parameters:

  • If you intend to run the script directly, open it and edit the variables at the top (description included in the file).
  • If you want to define the parameters elsewhere, you can pass them to start_server_bepinex.sh as you would to the valheim server executable (description included in the file). This is recommended over the first approach, as updates will overwrite the start script and you would have to configure it again.
  • If you are using https://linuxgsm.com, go inside your instance config file and change executable to “./start_server_bepinex.sh” to load the mod and your server arguments. More on LGSM config files can be found on their homepage.

6. Make sure to start the server via start_server_bepinex.sh, else the mod will not be loaded.

  • Uses libc6-dev
  • Most server hosters do not allow you to upload script files or make your own scripts executable (for very good reasons). You will have to wait until your hoster adapts V+ for his servers.
  • Please read the section about Server Config & Version Control (About Version Enforcement) below.
