Valheim Hildir update 0.217.20 patch notes - A figure with a beard and dark coat in the Viking co-op survival game.

Valheim has given players plenty of reasons to come back lately, with the Valheim Hildir update providing a good opportunity to jump back into the Viking co-op survival game while we await more details on what the Valheim Ashlands will look like. Following an update to servers earlier in the week, developer Iron Gate Studio delivers a fresh set of Valheim patch notes, this time resolving issues with crafting stations and keybinds.

This latest Valheim patch changes the connection panel, making it easier to parse if you’re taking advantage of the new Valheim server modifiers introduced with the previous update. It also fixes a rather prominent bug in the survival game which was causing keyboard and mouse keybinds to not correctly save or load – something that might seem minor to some, but is a notable source of frustration for people like myself who like to tweak their controls to their liking.

The crafting station bug preventing extensions from updating has also been resolved, user profile pictures should now work correctly when playing with people on other platforms, and the new blue standing brazier added in the previous patch is now actually blue.
