Valheim Seeds - Making Custom Valheim Worlds

INTRODUCTION TO VALHEIM SEEDS

The world of Valheim brings you on a magnificent survival journey across procedurally generated worlds inspired by Norse mythology featuring towering skyscraper-like trees, beautiful waterfalls, chilly frosted fields, and an assortment of other unique biomes. With many unique areas inside Valheim, custom worlds using Valheim seeds enables you to generate your own entirely custom world where biomes and bosses can spawn in different locations.

By using custom Valheim seeds on a server everyone can experience your distinctive world whether you’re trying a seed that places all of the major biomes on your starting island or a seed that makes the game more difficult with a small starting island surrounded by a Black Forest. We invite fellow Vikings to join us as we explore Valheim seeds and how you can get a customized world with a custom seed added to your Valheim game server! 🗺️

VALHEIM SEEDS FOR SERVERS - IS IT POSSIBLE?

Valheim servers do support worlds that have a custom world seed, however, it is currently not possible to set a custom world seed directly on a server. Instead, the workaround of being able to use a custom world on a server does allow for using worlds with a custom seed, which can be uploaded from Valheim single-player to your server. Below, we will go over how you can create your own exclusive world with Valheim seeds and then upload that world to your dedicated Valheim server.

HOW TO CREATE WORLDS WITH VALHEIM SEEDS

CREATING THE CUSTOM WORLD IN SINGLE-PLAYER

  1. Open the Valheim game.
  2. Press “Start Game” and then select a character or create a new one.
  3. Under the “Select World” UI, press the “New” option.
    Valheim Seeds World Creator Menu

  4. You can now set the name and seed of the new world. Press “Done” afterward.

  5. Select that world and click “Move to Local” to allow you to find that world in the next steps to add that custom world to your server.
  6. Then press “Start”. This will spawn you into the world to be sure that is the world you’d like to use and add to your server.
    • If the world doesn’t look correct, or you’d prefer to try different Valheim seeds instead, back out to the main menu and repeat the steps above.

UPLOADING CUSTOM WORLDS TO YOUR VALHEIM SERVER

  1. To begin, access your single-player Valheim world files by first searching “%appdata%” on your Windows search and then pressing “Enter”.

  4. Find the world .fwl file for the world you’d like to upload to your server and keep this folder open. In our example, we will be uploading “NitradoTutorial.fwl”.
