OpenDatabase is a mod for Valheim it requires BepInEx for Valheim. With this mod you are able to control all recipes via JSON files.


Download and extract the latest version of OpenDatabase into the BepInEx plugin folder (usually Valheim/BepInEx/plugins )

Now run Valheim and join a world. After that go to Valheim/BepInEx/plugins/. There should be a folder called OpenDatabase, inside of that folder are currently two folders /Items/ and /Recipes/. Inside those folders are JSON files that you can now modify.

Configuration file BepInEx/config/Botan.OpenDatabase.cfg

Enable or disable the mod. If ShowZerosInJSON is set true, Zeros inside of a json file are not removed on generation.

Console Commands

While in game press F5 to open the game console then type help for more information. If it's your first time running the mod you must run the opendatabase.generate command for all of the files to generate.

opendatabase.reload - will reload all json files. You can modify json files without closing the game. opendatabase.generate all/items/recipes - will clear associated folders and regenerate the json files. opendatabase.config.reload - Reloads the config file

(Note!: If you want json files to have default values, close the game and delete the Opendatabase folder).

  • [x] Able to modify recipes.


The Club recipe for example looks like this:

	"result_item_id": "Club",
	"result_amount": 1,
	"RepairStation": "$piece_workbench",
	"CraftingStation": "",
	"minStationLevel": 1,
	"ingredients": [
			"id": "Wood",
			"amount": 6
			"id": "BoneFragments",
			"amount": 0

You will however not see "CraftingStation": "" empty values are not included in the json generation. This also applies to int/float by default if the value is 0.


This is the Club.json file inside of BepInEx/plugins/OpenDatabase/Items

"name": ... is the ItemId

"m_name": ... is the displayed name

	"name": "Club",
	"itemData": {
		"m_name": "$item_club",
		"m_description": "$item_club_description",
		"m_weight": 2,
		"m_maxStackSize": 1,
		"m_armor": 20,
		"m_armorPerLevel": 1,
		"m_blockPower": 10,
		"m_canBeReparied": true,
		"m_damages": {
			"m_blunt": 12
		"m_damagesPerLevel": {
			"m_blunt": 6
		"m_timedBlockBonus": 2,
		"m_deflectionForce": 20,
		"m_deflectionForcePerLevel": 5,
		"m_destroyBroken": false,
		"m_dodgeable": true,
		"m_maxDurability": 100,
		"m_durabilityPerLevel": 50,
		"m_maxQuality": 4,
		"m_useDurability": true,
		"m_useDurabilityDrain": 1,
