Valheim - Valhallall, Meadhallall, Shieldwallall

New Hearth and Home update info!

Hearth and Home is arriving tomorrow.

If you want to check everything new in the game without spoilers then don't check the trailer or patch notes, otherwise

Patch notes

A whopping 175MB download for Hearth & Home - nearly 1/5th of the install size!

Some people complain when they buy a game and it ends up being a tiny download - like, they're concerned about the dollars-per-byte ratio or something - but I'm always way more impressed by a great game with a tiny download/install footprint.

I've been reading a bit about the update because they recommend starting a new world if you want to experience all the changes as intended. Turns out that if you don't want to do that you need to drop and pick up stuff again in order to trigger the new things, and also new resources WILL NOT appear in EXPLORED areas.

Anyone starting over and want to share a sever? I didn’t get into this game initially due to time but hey I’m funemployed so may give it another whirl.

I installed docker on my old computer and got the Valheim dedicated server running. I don't want to open it to all as it probably can't handle 50 people's bases everywhere like the main GWJ server, but anyone who is planning on playing in the evening PST, I would be open to having some company.

Intriguing. I would be up for it. Jaya likely too.

Are people no longer using the other servers?

Edit: There's discussion on discord about doing a map reset. Due to the new resources are only found in unexplored areas.

Before we do that, I would like to grab some stuff and move it to a private instance.

Yeah that is a good idea - maybe give a day or two and some notice so people can do that. I don't want to build anything new but i do want to get back into when the new areas are in and I don't want to start from scratch. Thanks!

I've rolled all of my important stuff into a private server in case I ever do need it, but I've also deleted my character and have started again.
I can't wait for the new GWJ server to explore

I was thinking of giving us till the 22nd to gather what we need from the current server and then start over with a new map to take advantage of all the new stuff

Ranalin,
Are you looking at that for both servers? I'm still somewhat actively building and connecting my multiple monoliths on Server 2 (where Roo, Malor and I were most active.) Let me know if resetting them both, as it will take a significant amount of time to pull all my resources out...so I'll try to start in the AM - haha. Cheers.

Thanks

Can the db files be extracted? I know that on my server it backs up to a zip file every hour and I could take that zip and open it on my local machine. Maybe a solution could be to make a current backup available so people can just get to their stuff that way (or continue what they are doing locally).

Yeah the plan is to do both. I got clearance from Roo and figured the rest of you were on board.

I'll save the file as kazar suggested

Ran,
Working on it this AM. Started a new personal server to get the same vision of new changes, and taking pics of old things If you can give me part of tomorrow to get everything out, would appreciate it...but working it now!

Cheers

I just reinstalled my machine and don't have FTP software on it yet. To cut time spent at the desk i just put in a ticket to support to have them do the reset after 16:00 EST. They're rarely johnny-on-the-spot so it could happen then or between that and 00:00am. When i get confirmation i'll let folks know here and on discord.
