Permissions and credits
Important Information:

So I've updated the licence on Github to MIT. 

I hope that someone will pickup this mod.


OpenDatabase is a mod for Valheim it requires BepInEx for Valheim.
With this mod you are able to controll all recipes and items via JSON files.


Download and extract the latest version of OpenDatabase into the BepInEx plugin folder (usually Valheim/BepInEx/plugins )
Now run Valheim and join a world. After that go to Valheim/BepInEx/plugins/. There should be a folder called OpenDatabase, inside of that folder are currently two folders /Items/ and /Recipes/. Inside those folders are JSON files that you can now modify.

Configuration file BepInEx/config/Botan.OpenDatabase.cfg

Enable or disable the mod.
If ShowZerosInJSON is set true, Zeros inside of a json file are not removed on generation.
