This mod requires the following mods to function

denikson-BepInExPack_Valheim-5.4.1901 icon

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

Preferred version: 5.4.1901
ValheimModding-Jotunn-2.10.0 icon

Jötunn (/ˈjɔːtʊn/, 'giant'), the Valheim Library was created with the goal of making the lives of mod developers easier. It enables you to create mods for Valheim using an abstracted API so you can focus on the actual content creation.

Preferred version: 2.10.0




Adds multiple variation of pressure plates which open and close doors.

  • Wooden pressure plate: 3 wood, 1 surtling core with the hammer. Requires a workbench in range
  • Stone pressure plate: 3 stone, 1 surtling core with the hammer. Requires a workbench in range
  • Crystal pressure plate, 1 crystal, 1 surtling core with the hammer. Requires a workbench in range


Ingame settings

Plate settings


Press 'E' when hovering over a plate to open its setting:

  • Trigger Radius: if a player is inside this range, the plate is pressed
  • Door Radius: all doors inside this radius are opened/closed
  • Activation Time: duration in which the plate is pressed
  • Trigger Delay: duration it takes before the plate is pressed
  • Invert Doors: inverts open/closed state
  • Toggle Mode: the plate stays active after the first press and needs to be pressed again to deactivate
  • Ignore wards: allows other players to open doors even they have no access
  • Only open if not permitted: The plate only interacts with players that don't have permission inside the ward area. Requires 'Ignore wards' to be active
  • Allow creatures to trigger: monster and creatures can also press the plate. Requires 'Ignore wards' to be active
  • Tame interaction: decides what certain tame status is needed in order to interact with the plate. Requires both 'Ignore wards' and 'Allow creatures to trigger' to be active

Global settings

Config file at BepInEx/config/com.maxsch.valheim.pressure_plate.cfg

  • Plate Volume: set the volume level of all plates. Can be changed while ingame

Manual Installation

  1. Install BepInEx and Jötunn, the Valheim Library
  2. Extract the content of Pressure-Plate into the BepInEx/plugins folder.

The mod can be installed at a server to enforce the installation on all clients.
