The unprecedented success of Valheim continues. Going from a little known Viking survival RPG to the top-selling Steam game for two months running, Iron Gate AB's Valheim has been a huge triumph. One of the aspects of the title that helps it succeed is the community mods, whether that be fans recreating worlds or touching up the game to enhance it. One such recent mod overhauls Valheim with hundreds of texture improvements, and the results are very impressive.
Valheim is already a highly-reviewed game, and one of the facets of the game that makes it amazing is its visual aesthetics. The art design is generally perceived as fantastic. Viewed from a broad perspective, Valheim can be quite jaw-dropping, especially as an indie-developed title. However, some of the textures look muddy up close, and that is where a mod may improve the game.
A modder named "aC0C0NUT" has released an HD Texture Pack for Valheim that addresses over 255 items in the survival RPG. With this mod installed, players will instantly see an improvement over the muddy aesthetics of things like shrubbery, flowers, or large objects like ships. Included in the HD Texture Pack are grass, trees, shrubbery, wood and stone building mats, crafting/forging equipment, swords and shields, iron/silver/padded Armor, troll hide, capes, boats/ships, banners, and more. The mod also adds resolution enhancements.
Valheim, in many ways, is the type of game that is infinitely replayable, and that is likely why it is remaining so high on the Steam charts. It is great to see the community continue to enjoy it, create mods for it, and share among themselves. The game itself is special, but the community behind it will likely have the creativity to keep it going as well.
The newest game in the popular and ever-growing survival genre, Valheim has taken the world by storm. Selling 5 million copies in its first month, the Viking survival game has been compared to following the early trends of Minecraft in creating a very immersive survival experience with a great crafting and building system.
The game seems to be an unstoppable force at the moment and is due to get a bunch of content updates in the near future. Modding communities have already begun to appear with all kinds of creative additions for the game such as quality of life updates that make life as a Viking much easier. However, it is possible that one of the future official updates could include some of these changes. Here are 10 quality of life features we hope to get added in Valheim.
Having a messy inventory can lead to a lot of frustrating situations while playing Valheim. If the player needs to quickly find something in a completely full inventory, it can be fairly difficult. A sort button could solve this pretty easily by moving related items next to each other and quickly allowing the player easy access to items they need. This could help a ton when farming as sometimes junk items will be randomly picked up and having them in an organized section could be a lot easier than looking through everything. It would also help with player chests or community chests as those can sometimes get extremely unorganized through time.
