Fellow Valheimians!

We're hosting our first Valheim build contest for creative vikings with Steam prizes, digital trophies for your profile and of course friendly competition & inspiration! It's an open theme but does have some important rules to keep things fair. Full contest details here.

We're excited to see what the community builds and hope you enjoy the contest.

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions!

Hi all, just found you via the Valheim reddit and saw your contest. Is it allowed to enter with builds already posted over on reddit (of course stuff from myself :D). Or should it be a new one?

Welcome! It would be nice if it was built for the contest. However, as long as it is yours & built in the Meadows, it qualifies!

Vaheim is still very new and we're just getting established. Maybe future contests, year+ out, will ask that builds be built for the contest. Right now, everything everyone has built is relatively new (few months).

I'm excited.
For the devcommands, can people spawn anything on the command list also? including floating rock? It would be wild to do so.
Just want to make sure I understand the rules correctly.
Thanks,
Arch G

Good question. I looked up the full list of what you can spawn and didn't realize the scope. It makes sense considering it's for literally debugging the game.

When I wrote the rules, my intention was simply to allow creative mode / unlimited materials. I think most like to see builds that are somewhat possible in the game. That said, while you can spawn 10,000 item frames in debugmode, you're not realistically going to do that in the game, so where would we draw the line? The line could be, items available in the build menu but I also don't care about a few raspberry bushes to accent a home.

I'm not going to be overly strict for this contest considering it's our first, we're all figuring out what is possible / accepted and how far we can push building in general. The contest is an experiment in itself that is meant to motivate everyone to build something that pushes their own abilities.

The rules state you can use devcommands. I don't know how many read that and might already be working on entries. If this ultimately results in entries that the community is against in future contest, then we'll learn from it and revise the rules going forward.

Agreed. I'll stick to something available and buildable in the game, and also reasonable too; for example, the tall rock pillar in the Plains can be spawn using devcommands, but in the Meadows context, that doesn't make any sense.
I like the idea of seeing how far we can push building to a new level.
Can't wait to see everyone's entry.
