This was a long one! This patch has been taking extra long time to develop due to the new terrain-modification system. 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 behaviour 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.
According to the official Valheim Roadmap, at least 4 major updates are planned for Valheim later this year, as well as several minor fixes and game patches. While there is no official word on when these updates are supposed to release, we can expect one to drop every two to three months, if not sooner!
Take note that once a character has been saved in the new version of Valheim, they can no longer be played on older versions.
Valheim should update automatically. If it doesn't do so, select it in your Steam Library, then there should be an update button where the Play button usually is. Alternatively you can right click it from the leftside bar and press Update.
Simply click that, and you can find the progress in your Downloads tab by clicking the bar at the bottom of your steam window.
If for some reason your game does not automatically update, go to the Steam Library and right-click it from the left bar, then click Properties.
Click the Updates menu from the lefthand side of the window, and select the first gray box. Select
Always keep this game updated, or if you want to be sure, choose the high priority option.
