This mod requires the following mods to function

denikson-BepInExPack_Valheim-5.4.900 icon

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

Preferred version: 5.4.900



Give your ships names. This mod will let you interact with a ship (Longships, Karves or Rafts) and enter a name for the ship which will then be displayed based on the configuration settings. The interaction location on all of the ships is the area just in front of the mast on the ship's deck (for Longships and Karves, it's between the mast and the storage). Look down at the ship in that location and you should see an option to name the ship (note that if you enable requireKeyPress in the configuration, you'll have to hold the key defined in editKey -- default is RightControl -- to see the interact message).

You can configure the font used, font size, color, the location of the name, how far away you should see the name, whether or not the name fades out as you approach the max distance and whether or not the name should scale based on your distance from the ship (bigger as you get closer, smaller as you get further away). You can also configure whether or not to show the ship's name while you're on it.

Code can be found on github. Issues or change/feature requests can be sent via github or to @FixingDeer at the Valheim Modding Discord.
