Valheim Plus

Valheim Plus is the undisputed top mod of the game so far. The mod changes everything from the ground up, and includes a ton of fantastically convenient improvements.

This includes removing the "Invalid Placement" when building, adjusting stamina usage and regeneration, carry weight, unarmed damage, and plenty more.

Craft from Containers

While Valheim Plus is more of a catch-all mod, Craft from Containers is a very straightforward mod that brings massive QOL improvements to your Valheim gameplay.

Quick Stack

One of the frustrating points of Valheim is the game's inventory management system. Items can be frustrating to stack, and with no quick key to get it done like many other games offer, a new mod has taken on the job.

Quick Stack lets players use a configurable key to quickly stack items from your inventory into containers without having to click and drag.


How to Download and Install Valheim Mods

Valheim mods can be downloaded and installed from popular gaming mod platform Nexus Mods.

THE FUTURE: Vortex has replaced Nexus Mod Manager

Valheim currently doesn't have a Steam Workshop page, so this will be the best resource for you to get mods into your game quickly and painlessly.

To download and install Valheim mods from Nexus Mods, you can use their client, Vortex, or download manually and put your files in the right spots if you already know what you're doing.

For first timers, we recommend the client approach.
