BepInEx pack for Valheim. Preconfigured and includes unstripped Unity DLLs.

AzuCraftyBoxes is a Valheim mod that allows players to access and use resources from nearby containers when crafting and building, based on a configurable range and item restrictions.


  • Automatically use resources from nearby containers within a configurable range when crafting or building
  • Restrict specific items from being pulled out of containers by defining rules in the configuration file in the BepInEx/config folder called Azumatt.AzuCraftyBoxes.yml
  • Toggle the mod on/off in-game using a configurable hotkey
  • Flashing UI text to indicate when resources are being pulled from nearby containers

Version checks with itself. If installed on the server, it will kick clients who do not have it installed.

This mod uses ServerSync, if installed on the server and all clients, it will sync all configs with [Synced with Server] tags to client

This mod uses a file watcher. If the configuration file is not changed with BepInEx Configuration manager, but changed in the file directly on the server, upon file save, it will sync the changes to all clients.

Example YAML
# Below you can find example groups. Groups are used to exclude or includeOverride quickly. They are reusable lists! 
# Please note that some of these groups/container limitations are kinda pointless but are here for example.
# Make sure to follow the format of the example below. If you have any questions, please ask in my discord.

# Full vanilla prefab name list:
# Item prefab name list:

# There are several predefined groups set up for you that are not listed. You can use these just like you would any group you create yourself.
# These are the "All", "Food", "Potion", "Fish", "Swords", "Bows", "Crossbows", "Axes", "Clubs", "Knives", "Pickaxes", "Polearms", "Spears", "Equipment", "Boss Trophy", "Trophy", "Crops", "Seeds", "Ores", "Metals", and "Woods" groups.

# By default, if you don't specify a container below, it will be considered as you want to allow pulling all objects for pulling from it.
# If you are having issues with a container, please make sure you have the full prefab name of the container. Additionally, make sure you have exclude or includeOverride set up correctly.
# Worst case you can define a container like this. This will allow everything to be pulled from the container.
# rk_barrel:  
#  includeOverride: []

## Please note that the below containers are just examples. You can add as many containers as you want.
## If you want to add a new container, just copy and paste the below example and change the name of the container to the prefab name of the container you want to add.
## The values are set up to include everything by using the includeOverride (aside from things that aren't really a part of vanilla recipes, like Swords or Bows). 
## This is to give you examples on how it's done, but still allow everything to be pulled from the container.

  exclude: # Exclude these items from being able to be pulled from the container
    #- Food # Exclude all in group
    - PickaxeBronze # Allow prefab names as well, in this case we will use something that isn't a food
    # - Food # This would not work, you cannot includeOverride a group that is excluded. You can only override prefabs from that group.
    - PickaxeBronze # You can however, be weird, and override a prefab name you have excluded.

# It's highly unlikely that you will need the armor, swords, bows, etc. groups below. These are just in case you want to use them. 
# They were also easy ways for me to show you how to use the groups without actually excluding something you might want to always pull by default.

    - Swords # Exclude all in group
    - Tier 2 Items # Exclude all in group
    - Bows # Exclude all in group
  includeOverride: # If the item is in the groups above, say, you were using a predefined group but want to override just one item to be ignored and allow pulling it
    - BowFineWood
    - Wood
    - Bronze

    - All # Exclude everything

    - Swords # Exclude all in group
    - Tier 2 Items # Exclude all in group
    - Bows # Exclude all in group
  includeOverride: # If the item is in the groups above, say, you were using a predefined group but want to override just one item to be ignored and allow pulling it

Version Update Notes
1.2.3 - Add back my normal filtering since AdventureBackpacks now adds a mock creator.
1.2.2 - Add compatibility with AdventureBackpacks. Since the container didn't have a creator, I had to make an exception for it. Typically the only containers without a creator are world containers, so it was skipped. Happy Crafting.
- Will probably look into making it compatible with Smoothbrain's Backpack mod soon, if it wasn't already.
1.2.1 - Remove the PullToInventory feature as this allows item duplication. This bug isn't an easy one to fix as it requires a server, multiple people (I usually test alone as no one really has the patience) and a decent amount of time. Currently, I am low on time until mid year 2024. If I manage to find a fix, it will be updated to be included again. Sorry for the inconvenience but I hope this at least stops the exploiting for now.
- If you just read that an think that it will take me until mid year 2024 to update, you're incorrect and worried for nothing. Low on time doesn't mean no time, just means my usual super fast updates aren't so super fast anymore :D
1.2.0 - Hildir Update. Not sure why? Hell, might not fix it for everyone.
- Also, change the version check to be hash check.
1.1.9 - Small temp bug workaround. Will properly fix later.
1.1.8 - Localization and other bug fixes
1.1.7 - Updates for Valheim 0.216.9.
- Bug fixes for duplication issue and a few others that were reported.
1.0.7 - Turns out, some mods just don't populate all expected things on ItemDrops. Added in more null checks and even fix some mod's issues related to the ItemDrop script. Should fix 99% of all issues with mod compatibility.
1.0.6 - Update Example.yml file to include the super awesome new features. Add a ton of comments to make even the dumbest of monkeys hopefully understand. Not that you're dumb, just's stupid simple.
- It is highly recommended that you regenerate your yml file and reconfigure it!
- You can now limit what goes into smelters, kilns, fireplaces, and cooking stations. Hopfully I didn't fuck up and the Example.yml is how everyone likes it by default.
- Hope you enjoy this update.
1.0.5 - All is normal. FPS issue fixed. Rest easy.
- Issue is caused by Therize's fancy Armory. You're never too fancy that I can't fix it.
- Special thank you to the few who rapidly tested my dlls. Zaphonia, SchwarzFenrir, and HunterAP. You're appreciated.
1.0.4 - Hotfix to attempt to reduce some lag added from the last patch. Hopefully this helps.
1.0.3 - Add quick fueling via hotkey (LeftShift + E by default) for cooking stations, fireplaces, smelters and kilns.
- Fix some errors that people can experience when using mods that do not populate the ItemDrop script appropriately based on what vanilla expects.
1.0.2 - Fix some NREs that can happen when WardIsLove is installed and you are loading into your world.
- Additionally, make pulling resources into your inventory work when building with the hammer.
- Note: Not all of the features from OdinsCraftyBoxes are in this mod yet. I am rewriting some of the patches to work better and be more performant. Bear with me.
1.0.1 - Fix some NREs
1.0.0 - Initial Release
