README

ESP

This mod adds lots of new information to tooltips and visualizes many hidden mechanics which can be used to improve your gameplay and perfect your build.

Works on dedicated servers for server admins.

Some use cases:

  • Perfecting your builds with a better understanding of structure support, structure health, cover and smoke mechanics.
  • Spawn proofing your bases with the player base effect visualized.
  • Finding the best ways to deal with tougher enemies by knowing their resistances and attacks.
  • Getting deeper insight of exact mechanics and interaction by looking at the detailed visualizations and tooltips.

Manual Installation

  1. Install the BepInExPack Valheim
  2. Download the latest zip.
  3. Extract it in the <GameDirectory>\BepInEx\plugins\ folder.
  4. Recommended to also install the Configuration manager for easier configuring.

Note: For all the mods I'm working on, this has the lowest priority and probably won't get update for a while.

Configuration

By default, most features are active which adds too much information for most use cases. It's recommended to turn off most features, until you have a better idea what you are looking for.

The best way is to use the configuration manager since it provides a decent UI and works during the game. Three values are possible for features:

  • 1: Feature is enabled.
  • 0: Feature is hidden. Enabling the feature will instantly make it visible.
  • -1: Feature is disabled. Enabling the feature may not appear until the area/object is reloaded.

Another way is to use the commands esp_toggle, esp_enable and esp_disable.

  • esp_toggle: Switches the value between 0 and 1.
  • esp_enable: Sets the value to 1.
  • esp_disable: Sets the value to -1.

However once you know what you need, you should bind the esp_toggle command to a key to quick turn features on/off. For example: bind o esp_toggle HUD ExtraInfo would toggle the HUD and extra hover texts when pressing O button.

Parameter * affects all settings. For example esp_disable * hides all features.

Unfortunately the feature names for commands aren't documented yet (but the commands support autocomplete).
