denikson-BepInExPack_Valheim-5.4.2202 icon

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

Preferred version: 5.4.2202


Increases the base map discovery range around the player as well as dynamically adjusts the range based on various visibility factors.

  • The discovery radius is generally increased compared to vanilla.
  • Discovery radius is further increased while on a boat.
  • Radius increases gradually based on altitude.
  • Radius increases or decreases based on current amount of daylight.
  • Radius can be decreased by weather effects such as fog, rain or snow.
  • Radius decreased by 30% while in a forested area.

Values listed above are defaults. All of them are configurable. Run the game once with the mod enabled to generate the config. See config for details on what each option does.

It is generally recommended to only adjust the radius values in the "Base" category of the config. Default values in the "Multipliers" category have been tweaked to try to approximate actual visibility changes, and changing them can significantly impact exploration radius in sometimes unexpected ways.

This mod is client only and does not need to be installed on dedicated servers. For the best experience, all clients should use the same configuration.


This mod is designed to install and run via r2modman. You can optionally install it manually following the steps below.

Manual Install

  1. Install BepInExPack Valheim
  2. Download latest Pathfinder.dll by clicking "Manual Download". Extract the dll from the zip file into [GameDirectory]\Bepinex\plugins. (You only need the dll.)
  3. Run the game once, then close it and edit the generated cfg file in [GameDirectory]\Bepinex\config if you want to customize anything.
