==========Description==========

Marsarah Mod v5.1.1

The purpose of this mod is to make Valheim feel less grindy in general and to add interesting features to the game. This is mostly intended for subsequent playthroughs, as I recommend the vanilla experience for a first playthrough.

Short description:

  • HUD additions: time of day, smart biome text indicator, inventory weight, boat speed (HUD toggleable with the Insert key)
  • Reduces the amount of resources needed to craft or upgrade gear, as well as some build pieces. Most of the resource reductions for gear are made for metal.
  • Some items have their required resource types changed to match the biome they are in. For example, a Silver Sword will not require Iron anymore, but Obsidian.
  • Double bronze crafting
  • Iron age back piece with poison resist
  • Heavy armor speed penalties removed. Light armor speed buffs
  • Battleaxe and Shield speed penalties reduced
  • Shorter Forsaken powers cooldowns and longer durations
  • Lighter metal weight
  • Faster character walk speed
  • Larger pickup area
  • No skill level down when dying
  • Wet effect duration reduced
  • Larger explore radius on boat
  • Overall less stamina usage
  • Added better loadscreen tips
  • Reordered crafting recipes (food & gear ordered by biome)
  • More stacks when cooking some food recipes
  • Armor provides HPP
  • Bigger whisp radius
  • Friendly ballistas
  • Mage gear gives base eitr
  • Summoned skeletons improved gear
  • Less fall damage
  • Improved staff of frost accuracy and crossbows reload time reduced
  • Mistlands and Ashlands gear upgrade unlocker

==========Requirements=========

This mod needs BepInEx for Valheim in order to work.


===========Installation==========

Unpack the .zip file and copy the MarsarahMod.dll into the Valheim/BepInEx/Plugins folder.
If upgrading from version 2.1.0 specifically, remove that .dll file.


============Details============

The mod is split in sections which can be enabled/disabled individually in the config file (all are enabled by default). This file is created automatically when the game is run with the mod installed for the first time.

Nexusmods page: https://www.nexusmods.com/valheim/mods/1542

[Main Mod]

  • Toggles the entire mod on or off.

[Cheaper Gear Recipes]

  • Reduces the amount of resources needed to craft or upgrade gear. This does not modify the type of resources needed, just the amount.
  • Most metal resource requirements are reduced to half (for the majority of items).
  • Other non-metal resource amounts are either increased or decreased where needed for the sake of balance.

[Double Bronze Crafting]

  • Outputs double the amount of Bronze when smelting Copper and Tin at a Forge.
  • This section should equalize the Bronze gear with the other biomes, as the amount of Bronze needed to craft a piece of gear is not reduced by half.

[Alternate Gear Recipes]

  • Changes some gear material requirements for crafting or upgrading to match the biome the item comes from. Thus a player will not need to be pushed back to the previous biome to get the required material to craft it.
  • This section changes the required crafting/upgrading materials for gear items.
  • Specific details can be found in the Readme file in the Nexusmods page.

[Alternate Linen & Lox Cape]

  • Specific details can be found in the Readme file in the Nexusmods page.

[Alternate Build Pieces Materials]

  • Changes some material requirements for the build pieces below. This goes in line with the Alternate Gear Recipes section.
