The crafting aspect of Valheim has made every player a talented architect and Valheim’s subreddit is the place to show off their marvelous creations. Each player has made their own rendition of a castle, a boathouse or even their own city in this beautiful game. If you’re looking for inspirations to make your own little wonderland in Valheim, I’ve gathered some of the best builds you can make in the game.
But wait! Before you get into your game and start to gather materials, just know that instead of investing hours and hours trying to gather materials, you can use a mod or some cheat codes to make the process a little easier.
Don’t know how? Let’s get right into how to use cheats and mods in Valheim before you start all the fabulous Valheim Builds!
1. How to Use Console Command for Cheats in Valheim?
To open console commands, press F5 on keyboard and type the command or cheat to use in the dialogue box. To enable cheats in game type imacheater and press enter. The same code needs to be typed again to disable cheater mode.
Reminder- Cheat mode and using cheat code in console command works for single player and not for multiplayer servers.
With the cheat mode enabled, the best cheat code you can use for materials is:
Command – spawn [item] [amount] [level]
Example: spawn FineWood 100 – This spawns 100 finewood planks on the ground so that you can have an easier time building your fortress.
Although the cheat codes are nice and fairly easy to use, it can get quite tiresome trying to spawn each item. One thing you can do is use mods.
2. How to Use Build Mods in Valheim?
To use the Builder Mod in Valheim, players have to extract the mod zip file and the manual, and paste the contents into Valheim’s local folder.
The BuildShare Mod is one of the best mods to use if you want to create beautiful and some of the most amazing bases in Valheim. You can also use other players’ beautiful builds and import them to your own game.
You can also use Valheim Plus to tweak even the minimal parts of your house design to make the perfect base. Note that Valheim Plus offers more than just the building part, but its advanced build option is the perfect mod to let your creative side shine.
