World Rings System

The Valheim world is a circle with a default radius of 10,500 meters. In order to encourage and maintain exploration, I've defined a set of world rings that all locations in the More World Locations series will use when spawning in a world. Below are the defined world rings...

Ring # Start Distance (m) End Distance (m)
Ring 1 0 500
Ring 2 500 2000
Ring 3 1500 3000
Ring 4 2500 4000
Ring 5 3500 6000
Ring 6 4500 8500
Ring 7 5000 10500

Instructions

  • To add these locations to a non-existing world, no action is required. Ensure the mod is installed and create a new world.
  • To add these locations to an existing world, install the mod the Upgrade World. Then load into your existing world and paste this command in console. Note, you must have access to the console either via enabling it via Steam or using a mod.

Command: locations_add MWL_RuinsArena2, MWL_RuinsCastle1, MWL_RuinsCastle3, MWL_RuinsTower3, MWL_RuinsTower8, MWL_Tavern1, MWL_WoodTower1, MWL_WoodTower2, MWL_WoodTower3 start

Custom Creature Spawns and Loot Lists

The creatures and loot are all customizable. Modded creatures and items are supported. To customize, create a new YAML file in the BepinEx configuration folder. If using mod manager, then use the BepinEx config folder in your profile folder. All mods from the More World Locations series will share the same Yaml file so you only need to create it once.

For creatures, each instance of the location will randomly select from the list of creatures in the the file. First, it will pick a random index (an item in the list), then it will increment through the list, assigning creatures to available creature spawners until each creature spawner has a creature. For the best results, scatter higher tier creatures throughout the list. You must use the creature's prefab name and not it's in-game name. See here for a list of vanilla creature prefab names: Creatures List

For loot, the chests will randomly select items from the list.

More World Locations

The goal of the More World Locations series is to solve Valheims exploration problem. Valheim has a giant map but relatively few points of interest (POI) to find. Once a player learns that each biome is just a copy of what they've already seen, exploring the rest of the map feels unnecessary. The More World Locations series will fix this problem by adding dozens of handcrafted, unique, and interesting POIs to the Valheim world.
