My Valheim mods are not appearing in game:
Oftentimes, this can occur by not completing all of the steps outlined above. Ensure you have installed Valheim Plus on both the server and client to allow plugins to run. In addition, ensure the mod .dll files are installed in the /BepInEx/plugins/ folder, or it will not load.
My Valheim mods appear, but have bugs and other issues:
This can often occur if the mod is outdated or has an issue in the coding. We recommend checking the “Last Updated” section of the mod page to see if it is recent. Otherwise, each mod page should come with a “Bugs” tab to report possible issues for the author to fix.
My players are not able to join or use the mods:
This can occur if the players do not have the mods installed on their own games as well. It is important that the mods are installed on the server and every player’s game, otherwise they may not be able to join and play properly.
