Valheim has a rather large bug-fix release in testing

Ready for the next bigger patch for survival game Valheim? Developer Iron Gate has a new public test available with lots of fixes. This is not a content focused patch, that’s still to come a while later, this is just to clean up issues players have been reporting.

Since this is in the public test you can access it via the Betas option on Steam, you just need to enter the “yesimadebackups” password, because it can cause issues and they want to be sure you’re not diving in without thinking. If you don’t want a potential to mess up your worlds, wait for the main release.

Have a look and see if something that annoyed you is fixed:

Fixes & Improvements:

* Hildir locations should now generate correctly on dedicated servers

* You can now zoom the camera while using the hammer, hoe & cultivator if no rotation is possible while using the mouse, and always on gamepad
* Fixed issue where precision placing build pieces would appear to be a few centimetres off
* Removed possibility to build on fire pit
* Removing a piece is now done when you release the button rather then pressing it (to allow for button combinations and so you can change your mind and hover away)
* Prevent character from jumping when in piece selection
* Place stacks is now available only when a container has been opened (You can no longer press shift-e on a container to place stacks)
* You now have better control over growing plants as they will now grow into approximately their sapling’s rotation, but they start with a random rotation when planting.

* Reset “auto run” after dodge

* Fixed an issue where a world is saved twice when using manual save, doubling the amount of save time
* Fix memory leak when opening and closing the skill dialog
* Added check for available cloud storage after save and before world start (which should prevent world wipes after all)
