Launched at the start of February in Early Access, Valheim has become a beloved indie game by many players. On a base level, Valheim is a survival and crafting game inspired by Norse mythology. However, the imagination of players has created larger-than-life possibilities for the game. Iron Gate Studio is humbled by the game reaching over 5 million players, and the developer is committed to expanding the game's offering in the future.
The imagination of players majorly extends into the in-game creations in Valheim. Players create huge castles, fun mini-games, unique mods and more. Valheim players have made Viking beer pong tables, created expansive cities inspired by Lord of the Rings, and other exciting builds below.
One of the most impressive construction in the game so far is when Sauron's Tower got recreated in Valheim. Built by RalladoGamer, the tower was a massive undertaking which features the iconic Eye of Sauron at the top. While the creator took some liberties with the design of the tower, it is primarily made up of stone, and green torches help give off mood lighting. The Eye itself was apparently made from a mix of fireplaces and torches. Lord of the Rings continues to inspire interesting builds in all sorts of crafting games, and Sauron's Tower in Valheim's world is a sight to see.
Another player is creating the city of Whiterun from Skyrim in Valheim. Redditor Djchieu has been working on the expansive city for quite some time now, and recently posted the 14th update for the build. It's still incomplete, but it was a massive undertaking from the get-go, and progress is going smoothly. Going through Djchieu's videos, several recognizable locations in Whiterun can be seen. The blacksmith, Warmaiden's, is right inside the gates, the marketplace is about finished, and the stone streets help the build look believable. It will be a long while before Whiterun in Valheim is fully completed, but it will be awesome to see.
Another Reddit user, Ericxsg, set out to create Stormwind Harbor from World of Warcraft. As one of the most popular cities for the Alliance in the iconic MMO, there was plenty of inspiration for Ericxsg to use in the design in this build. The backdrop of mountain, high-scaling stone walls, and accurately placed stone staircases help make this build recognizable. The docks themselves also took plenty of time to complete, and multiple boats already line the harbor, completing the look of Valheim's version of Stormwind Harbor.
No crafting game would be truly complete without someone recreating an iconic locale or ship from Star Wars. Redditor Colonel-James-Parker set out to recreate Star Wars' Millenium Falcon in Valheim, and while he states it is only a test build, it looks pretty great. The exterior design of the iconic ship is immediately recognizable, and even the interior is explorable. While every detail can't be recreated accurately, notes like the green torch on the top, and an "open window" for the cockpit help add some flair. Plus, green torches line the back of the build to give the illusion of the glow of the ship's exhaust.
