New Valheim Patch Fixes That Devastating Missing Tombstone Bug
Valheim is shaping up to be the breakout survival game star of 2021. Since its release the game has surpassed 3 million sales and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. As one would expect, though, an Early Access title such as this one is still prone to being buggy despite the game’s overall solid design. Thankfully, one of the more impactful bugs that has cropped up has been squashed thanks to a newly released patch.
Valheim developer Iron Gate took to Steam to detail the patch notes for build 0.145.6. The patch does a few miscellaneous things such as save system tweaks and an update to the game’s credits, though it also resolves an issue related to missing tombstones. For those unfamiliar, players drop a tombstone upon death that contains their gear. Think of it as the Dark Souls death system but with items instead of one’s souls. Unfortunately said gravestones have started disappearing on players upon their return to the site of their last death, something no player wants to see given that their hard earned gear disappears along with the gravestones. Thankfully the new patch takes care of that by implementing ‘extra checks’ in order to help prevent them from disappearing.
Here are the full patch notes:
- Disable google analytics
- Updated Unity engine
- Forest crypt fixes
- Credits updated
- Save system returned to old-new
- Pickables sync fix (stones,carrots etc)
- Dedicated server CPU usage fix (Framerate limiter)
- Hearth smoke building fix
- Save system tweaks
- Console “save” function can be used remotely if player is added to admin list
- Autosave every 20min (instead of 30min)
- Manual join IP function (dedicated servers only)
- Extra tombstone checks ( to prevent them from disappearing )
- Better broken world handling ( crash/exit instead of loading an empty world )
- Localization fixes
Valheim is now available in Early Access on Steam.
