Adds hoppers and pipes to transport items.

Smelter Sorter


Real ingame hoppers

Different hopper types are available, all can be found in the hammer crafting tab:

Icon Name Cost
icon Bronze hopper 6 wood, 4 bronze nails
icon Bronze side hopper 6 wood, 4 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe 4m 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe 2m 2 wood, 1 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe up 4m 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe up 2m 2 wood, 1 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe down 4m 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe down 2m 2 wood, 1 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe up 26° 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe down 26° 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe up 45° 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Bronze pipe down 45° 4 wood, 2 bronze nails
icon Iron hopper 6 wood, 2 iron nails
icon Iron side hopper 6 wood, 2 iron nails

The transfer speed of all hopper and pipes are identical. The bronze hopper has one slot while the iron hopper has three. Hoppers can pickup and move items, while pipes can only move items.

Individual hopper settings

Every hopper can have it's own setting. They appear in a custom UI when the hopper is opened.

  • Filter Items: this can be used for automate item routing. The last item will be remembered with a "ghost" item and only this item type will be moved to the hopper.
  • Enable Item Dropping: if enabled and the hopper has no target inventory they will dropped like the smelter does for example.
  • Enable Item Pickup: if disabled the hopper will not pickup items from the ground.

Seamless multiplayer

The mod aims to work without interruption or major behavior differences of hoppers and pipes in multiplayer.

Manual Installation

This mod requires BepInEx, Jötunn and MultiUserChest.
Extract the content of ValheimHopper into the BepInEx/plugins folder or any subfolder.

The mod must be installed on all clients and the server, otherwise the connection will fail.
