This mod allows you to change the quality settings Valheim doesn't give you access to. The configuration uses BepInEx's builtin config-system. This allows a configuration even while the game is running.

The default configutation of this mod uses settings to maximize the game's framerate. Especially in regions where multible shadow-casting lightsources like bonfires and portals are present, this mod can make the diffrerence between slideshow and playable framerate.

  3. Move the contents of plugins folder into <GameDirectory>\BepInEx\plugins.
  4. Run the game.

Configuration

To configute this mod you can use the config file <GameDirectory>\BepInEx\config\KillerGoldFisch.ValheimFPSPlus.cfg (The config file gets created during the first start of the game with the mod installed).

Or you can use BepInEx's ConfigurationManager for the configutation in-game :

true

AnisotropicFiltering

Anisotropic filtering mode.

Value Description
Disable Disable anisotropic filtering for all textures.
Enable Enable anisotropic filtering, as set for each texture.
ForceEnable Enable anisotropic filtering for all textures.

Valheim Default

ForceEnable

Recommended

Disable

LodBias

Global multiplier for the LOD's switching distance. A larger value leads to a longer view distance before a lower resolution LOD is picked.

Valheim Default

2.0

Recommended

0.3

MasterTextureLimit

Setting this to one uses the first mipmap of each texture (so all textures are half size), setting this to two uses the second mipmap of each texture (so all textures are quarter size), etc.. This can be used to decrease video memory requirements on low-end computers. The default value is zero.

0 => no limit

Valheim Default

0

Recommended

1

MaximumLODLevel

A maximum LOD level. All LOD groups.

0 => no maximum

Valheim Default

MaxQueuedFrames

Maximum number of frames queued up by graphics driver.

Graphics drivers can queue up frames to be rendered. When CPU has much less work to do than the graphics card, is it possible for this queue to become quite large. In those cases, user's input will "lag behind" what is on the screen.

Use QualitySettings.maxQueuedFrames to limit maximum number of frames that are queued. On PC, the default value is 2, which strikes the best balance between frame latency and framerate.

Note that you can reduce input latency by using a smaller maxQueuedFrames because the CPU will be waiting until the graphics card finishes rendering previous frames. The downside of this however, is that it can result in a lower framerate.

SkinWeights

The maximum number of bones per vertex that are taken into account during skinning, for all meshes in the project.

The value can be either One Bone, Two Bones, Four Bones or Auto. Note that higher bone counts may have a performance cost, especially above 4 bones per vertex.

Value Description
OneBone One bone affects each vertex.
TwoBones Two bones affect each vertex.
FourBones Four bones affect each vertex.
Unlimited An unlimited number of bones affect each vertex.

Valheim Default

FourBones

Recommended

OneBone

SoftParticles

Should soft blending be used for particles?

Valheim Default

True

Recommended

False

SoftVegetation

Use a two-pass shader for the vegetation in the terrain engine.

If enabled, vegetation will have smoothed edges, if disabled all plants will have hard edges but are rendered roughly twice as fast.

Valheim Default

True

Recommended

False
