Valheim New Patch Now Available Fixing Bugs and Adding New Terrain Mod

Game developer Iron Gate Studios has rolled out the newest patch for video game Valheim today.

This new update will be making bugs go away and add a new terrain modification for the game. Players who have plans to make some big projects in the future, this will be the most useful tool to have. Update version 0.150.3 will be the patch to get today.

According to the developers, this new patch took a long time to develop due to the new terrain-modification system. Here’s how the rest of post states:

The new terrain modification system is made to reduce the number of network instances and make loading faster and smoother. Technically it’s a pretty big change but hopefully you should not notice that much of a difference except some minor behavior changes to the hoe and pickaxe and of course much smoother loading of areas with a lot of terrain modifications. All terrain modifications after this patch (using the hoe, pickaxe or cultivator) will automatically use the new modification system.

For existing areas where heavy terrain modifications have been made before this patch we have added a special console command “optterrain” that basically converts all the old terrain modifications in the nearby area to the new system. To use the “optterrain” console command, you first need to enable the ingame console by adding “-console” as a launch argument for the game.

Here’s the patch notes:

* Swamp draugr spawner location fix to prevent draugrs from spawning inside stones
* Lox pet-sfx fix
* Torches in locations should no longer support constructions
* Dolmen location stone size fix
* New terrain modification system
* Terrain-modification priority changed (Terrain modifications in an area should load before buildings, only applies to the new terrain modification system)
* World loading tweaks (to fix issues with ships and buildings getting damaged while loading)
* Stop server list download when leaving the start menu (to decrease network bandwidth usage)
* Lowered the amount of stone required to Raise ground using the hoe

Valheim new patch is now available on PC via Steam.
