Automatics - Valheim Mod

Automatics is a mod that automates the tedious tasks of life in Valheim. Most of its features exist in existing mods, but it has been re-designed to make it easier for me to use.


Each of the features described below can be completely disabled using the "Disable Module" option in the configuration.

Automatic door

Automatically opens and closes the door near the player. The interval and distance to detect the player can be changed from the configuration.

Automatic mapping

Automatic pinning animals, monsters, floras, veins, dungeons, etc. that exist around the player to the map. The pinning allows for each object and the detection range of the object can be changed from the config.

Custom icon pack: You can also define your own icons in png and json files. See docs/custom-icon-pack.adoc for custom icon pack specifications.

Document - Custom Icon Pack

Automatic processing

Refueling pieces that need fuel. Deliver materials to pieces that process materials, and store items produced by pieces. These tasks can be automated via containers around the piece.

Automatic feeding

Modifies tamable creatures so that they can eat food from containers and the player’s inventory, not just items on the ground.

Automatic repair

It can automatically repair items when the player is near a crafting station or when the crafting station GUI is opened or automatically repair nearby pieces when the player has a hammer equipped.

Automatic mining

Automatically mines minerals in the player’s surroundings. You can also add a shortcut key that allows you to mine at any time.

Automatic pickup

Automatically pick up items around the player. You can also add a shortcut key that searches the surroundings for the same items as the interacted item and pick up them all.

Console commands

Automatics add a few commands to help the user.


Usage: automatics (OPTIONS…​)

Displays the usage of commands added by Automatics.


Option Description
-i, --include=VALUE Show only commands whose names include the word specified in this option.
-e, --exclude=VALUE Exclude commands whose names contain the word specified with this option.
-v, --verbose Displays detailed usage of the command.
-h, --help Displays a help message and exits the command.


Usage: printnames (OPTIONS…​) (WORD|REGEXP)…​

Outputs internal or display names that contain the specified string or match the specified regular expression. If multiple arguments are specified, only those matching all of them will be output.

WORD A text contained in the internal or display name. (e.g. $enemy_, $item_, $piece_, Boar, Mushroom, Wood door); All partially matching internal and display names are output.

REGEXP A regular expression of the internal or display name to be output. Must be prefixed with r/ (e.g. r/^[$]item\_, r/^boar$)


Option Description
-h, --help Displays a help message and exits the command.


  • printnames ling r/^[$]enemy_

  • printnames r/^[[email protected]]location_.+(?<!_(enter|exit))$

  • printnames mushroom r/^[$]item_.+(?<!_description)$


Usage: printobjects [TYPE] (OPTIONS…​)

Display objects that can be handled by Automatics in the nearby.

TYPE Type of object to be displayed. Specify one of the following: animal, monster, flora, mineral, spawner, vehicle, dungeon, spot, other.


Option Description
-r, --radius=VALUE Specify the range within which the object is to be searched. [Default: 32] (Unit: Meters)
-n, --number=VALUE Specify how many objects matching the condition are to be displayed. [Default: 4]
-i, --include=VALUE Show only objects whose internal or display names match the word specified in this option. It works as a regular expression by concatenating r/ at the beginning of the string.
-e, --exclude=VALUE Exclude objects whose internal names or display names match the word specified with this option. It works as a regular expression by concatenating r/ at the beginning of the string.
-h, --help Displays a help message and exits the command.

The result of this command may show objects that you feel are not of the target type. For example, a Flint appear in the Flora search. This is not a bug but means that Automatics can treat Flint as Flora.


I recommend using Configuration Manager.

Configuration Menu (Click to view full size)

The README would be too large if we described all the details of the configuration, so we split it into separate file.

Open CONFIG.adoc to see the configuration details.

Adding object definitions to Automatics

You can use the Configuration Manager to define objects that you want Automatics to work with.

User-defined objects in GUI

Open docs/add-user-defined-object.adoc to learn more about adding user-defined objects.

About deprecated options

Resources Directory / [resources_directory]

Provided to load custom icon packs, this option will be discontinued in the near future as Automatics can now load custom icon packs from the BepInEx plugin folder.

Supplementary explanation

Matching by "Display name" and "Internal name"

In some features of Automatics, there is an option that allows the user to add targets as needed. The "Display name" and "Internal name" are used to identify these targets. The display name and internal name are matched according to different rules.

Display name

Display names are the names that appear in the game, such as Boar, Deer, Dandelion, etc. The matching rule for "Display name" is a partial match, meaning that if the target display name contains the specified string, it matches. It is case-insensitive.

Internal name

Internal names are the names used inside the game program, such as $enemy_boar, $enemy_deer, $item_dandelion, etc. The matching rule for "Internal name" is an exact match, meaning that if the target internal name is identical to the specified string, it matches. It is case-insensitive. Note that internal names for translations added by Automatics are prefixed with @, not $, as in @internal_name

Matching Samples

Display name Internal name
Greyling $enemy_greyling
Greydwarf $enemy_greydwarf
Surtling $enemy_surtling

Target data

Grey ling $enemy_greyling $enemy_greydwarf $enemy_
Greyling Match Match Match No match No match
Greydwarf Match No match No match Match No match
Surtling No match Match No match No match No match
