BepInEx pack for Valheim. Preconfigured and includes unstripped Unity DLLs.

Preferred version: 5.4.2202



A mod that reduces the discovery radius of workstations to 0 so that you have to interact with them to gain the discovery, not just be near them.

Version checks with itself. If installed on the server, it will kick clients who do not have it installed.

This mod uses ServerSync, if installed on the server and all clients, it will sync all configs to client

This mod uses a file watcher. If the configuration file is not changed with BepInEx Configuration manager, but changed in the file directly on the server, upon file save, it will sync the changes to all clients.

The LimitWorkstationDiscovery mod enhances the gameplay experience by requiring players to interact directly with workstations to discover them. This change encourages deliberate exploration and interaction in multiplayer environments, ensuring that knowledge acquisition is a conscious choice rather than a passive occurrence. Ward mods or other mods that deny interaction with the crafting station should be compatible with this mod, as it only changes the discovery radius of the workstations. Meaning, if the ward denies the interaction, the discovery will not occur as the vanilla code for that runs only if interaction is allowed.
