Valheim gets christmassy, armour stands and silences tamed wolves

By - | Views: 16,456

Iron Gate have given Valheim players an early Christmas present with a fresh update adding in a couple of seasonal bits and some free content.

Do you have lots of wolves tamed? Good noise, they will no longer annoy the heck out of you by howling constantly. Troll animations were overhauled, tamed animals have decided they like fire now, there's a profanity filter for the server list, a new armour stand to show off what you've got and a Yule tree! You can even craft little present boxes that act like tiny storage chests - how sweet.

To actually get new items to show up in your list, you need to go do some gathering as it will make the game wake up and give you it all. It confused me today when trying it, as I couldn't find any of the new stuff until I picked up a few bits of fresh materials.

Plenty of other improvements came along like some locational music tweaks, drop and spawn tweaks for the Abomination, localization updates and enabled clipping check when placing thrones.

Valheim is available to buy on Humble Store or Steam.

Silencing tamed wolves is probably something all my neighbours would have appreciated when the server was up.

But, it was my spot originally, everyone was just welcome to live there. Regret asking mind you, place was laggy as hell with all the terraforming and amount of fire in the area, the amount of tree's cut down, etc.

Anyway, I think I'm waiting for mistlands before I play again, which I'm very itching to do!

Goddamit, Liam. I genuinely went to edit the article before I remembered how much you love a pun!

It was clearly my unintentional genius at work once again 👀

I was already using mods to silence those pesky wolves... I have two (pets) in my castle and 20 guarding the entrance! Also using a mod for tamed animals and fire as I like to see my piggies in the dark. Good to see these two things implemented as I'd rather not use mods.

Right, time to put up the Xmas decorations

Funny thing about the fire was that it didn't matter if it was behind a wall or not. I had move my pig pen a bit because of that without accidentally letting the pigs out. There were workarounds for the lights as there are few things that shine in the dark. Yellow mushrooms being easiest to acquire as long as you dare to go to the black forest.

I tried yellow mushrooms but they were only good for decoration, very little actual illumination. My pen is at the front of my castle, next to the veggie patch, so it was annoying not being able to light it up. All's good now though!
