You've tamed them, fed them, bred them and love them. They love you too, but they're always looking for attention and getting in the way. And you have to pet each of them to get them to do what you want.
What you need is a little obedience training. With WolfPack, one keystroke will get all your tame wolves (or other creatures) to follow or stay at the same time.
DetectionRange: The maximum distance from a player that creatures will be affected by a Follow or Stay command. Default value is 50. Can be set from 1 to 150.
TrainableCreatures: a comma delimited list of creature names that will respond to Follow and Stay. Only tamed creatures will be affected. Default value is "wolf". NOTE: Values can be a creature, display, or prefab name. (see LogCreatureNames below)
Example 1: [ wolf,boar,lox ] Calls either wolves, boars, or loxes (loxen?), depending on which was the current selection (see CharacterSelectionKey below).
Example 2: [ Human*,*dwarf,*spider* ] You can add an asterisk (*) as the first and/or last character in a partial creature name to include all creatures who's name begins with, ends with or contains the partial text.
Example 3: [ * ] Calls all tamed creatures.
PackBehaviorShortcut: The keystroke to toggle between Follow and Stay for the currently selected creature. If you set UseTwoKeys to True (see below), this key will only issue the Follow command. Default is LeftAlt+T
UseTwoKeys: If set to True will use a separate keystroke for the Stay command as configured in AlternateStayShortcut (see below). Default is False
AlternateStayShortcut: The keystroke to call creatures to Stay. Only used if UseTwoKeys (above) is set to True. Default is LeftAlt+Y
CreatureSelectorShortcut: The keystroke to rotate through the list of TrainableCreatures (above). Pressing this key repeatedly will cycle through the configured list. If UseMouseWheel (see below) is set to True, holding this key down while spinning the mouse wheel will cycle through the configured list. The current selected creature will appear in the message area in the center of the screen (or top left under the hot bar as configured by Notifications below). Default is LeftAlt+U
MinimumCreatureLevel: The 'lowest' level of creature (in 'stars') affected by Follow and Stay. Default is 0. Can be set from 0 to 2. Affects all creatures.
UseMouseWheel: If set to True, the mouse wheel is used to cycle through the TrainableCreatures list to set the current creature. Hold down the CreatureSelectorShortcut key while spinning the mouse wheel. If you don't have a mouse with a wheel or use another input device that makes this difficult, set to False. Default is True
Notifications: The location of the creature selector message. Default is "Center" in the middle of the screen. You can also set this value to TopLeft under the hot bar, however the center text has a much quicker response.
StrictObedience: Sets the amount of 'wandering' when creatures are 'stayed'. If set to 0, creatures will obediently remain in one place. Default is 10. Can be set from 0 to 30. Affects all creatures.
UseSound: If set to True, will use the sound configured in PackCallSound (below) whenever creatures are called to follow.
PackCallSound: The audio clip played when creatures are called to Follow. Default is Whistle.wav. WolfPack is distributed with three audio clips; Whistle.wav, Horn1.wav, and Horn2.wav.
Whistle is a sharp finger whistle, Horn1 is a traditional hunting horn, and Horn2 is a deeper battle horn. These clips are located in the same folder as WolfPack.dll (...\BepInEx\plugins\Neobotics-WolfPack)
NOTE: You can put your own audio clips in this folder, and set PackCallSound to your file name. Be advised, however, this is 'at your own risk'. WolfPack has only been tested with the three included files, which are 16-bit uncompressed PCM .wav files sampled at 44100. WolfPack will attempt to load .wav, .mp3 and .wma files.
If you add your own clips, all players in multiplayer must have the same clip installed locally if they want to hear the calls of their fellow players. WolfPack will play the clip configured by each player, as long as it has that clip present locally in the mod folder.
MouseWheelLatency: Controls the mouse wheel spin behavior so 'big' spins don't 'overshoot' the next creature in the configured list. The default is 3, which should be sufficient for most users. Increase this value if the wheel spin is too sensitive and you find yourself 'skipping' over creatures in the list. Decrease this value if you find the wheel's response is too 'sluggish'. Can be set from 0 to 10.
LogCreatureNames: If set to True, will log all 'found' creatures called with Follow and Stay. This may be useful to identify the creature name when configuring the TrainableCreatures list.
You can edit the config file, or use Configuration Manager (or similar) to change the configuration without exiting the game, and then have WolfPack reload it's configuration from the chat window (Enter) by typing
You can also modify many of WolfPack's settings directly from the chat window using this syntax:
/wolfpack command_name=value, e.g.,
/wolfpack PackCallSound=Horn2.wav would change the configured wolf call sound to "Horn2".
While every effort goes into ensuring it works as described, there's no way to test every possible game scenario, especially with other mods or multiplayer.
WolfPack tries to "play nice", and shouldn't be doing anything that interferes with other mods. That being said, if another mod has its own method for controlling tames, you may experience conflicts. If you find a compatibility issue you can post it on NexusMods at: https://www.nexusmods.com/valheim/mods/1549?tab=posts. Be sure to include the mod name and version you think may be incompatible.
If you have a bug please report it on NexusMods at https://www.nexusmods.com/valheim/mods/1549?tab=bugs. If you do post a bug report, please make sure to include the following:
WolfPack does not modify any 'pet' interactions with creatures. In other words, you can't use WolfPack to pet individual creatures, such as Lox to Follow or Stay (like Wolves) without some other mod to tame them such as AllTameable (https://www.nexusmods.com/valheim/mods/1571).
You may find a 'wander' limit (set by StrictObedience_) of 0 too restrictive. A low, non-zero number gives the creatures a bit of 'wiggle room' while still keeping them grouped together.
'Petting' a 'following' wolf will cause it to Stay, regardless of who it's currently following. This is by design to allow players to 'trade' creatures.
Wolves have a limited attention span. If you leave the game, wolves will get bored and start wandering again, regardless of your StrictObedience settng.
You can mount up and ride at the forefront of a herd of charging Lox!
