About this mod

Middle Earth map, created using Better Continents mod v0.4.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
I have attempted to provide realistic and interesting biome placement, lots of rivers for ship navigation (most are navigable with long boat), and varied topology. There is still a lot of scope for improvement, but this represents many hours of editing and testing in game.
It includes a few examples of Better Continents new spawn placement system, but its use could be expanded a lot.
Please feel free to branch this to your own version, or join the discord linked below to share improvements.

Installation
To install this you should:
  1. Backup your worlds and characters
  2. Ensure you have the latest version of Better Continents installed (including its dependencies)
  3. Download this world save
  4. Unzip it into your worlds directory, which is located at C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\LocalLow\IronGate\Valheim\worlds
  5. Run the game and you should see MiddleEarthBC listed in the worlds list, so just load it like normal and play!


Server Installation
  1. Backup your worlds and characters
  2. Ensure you have the latest version of Better Continents installed (including its dependencies)
  3. Download this world save
  4. Unzip it anywhere you want
  5. Stop your server
  6. Make sure you have "enabled mods" on your server. How you do this will depend on your server provider. Their documentation should explain it. If you have full FTP access then you might need to upload BepInEx and configure it to be used by the server (see BepInEx Valheim documentation).
  7. Upload the world files to your server. This is probably be by FTP, but depends on your server provider. They should clearly indicate where to upload worlds to, if they are half way decent
  8. Upload the Better Continents dll from the mod to the server. Again, probably by FTP. It goes in the BepInEx\plugins directory as normal
  9. Modify your server to point at this world instead. How this is done again is dependent on the server provider, but an example is here. Enter MiddleEarthBC as the world name or save name, or however it is referred to by your provider
  10. Start your server again, it should launch MiddleEarthBC
  11. All clients MUST have the same version of Better Continents as the server, that is the only requirement. None of the Better Continents config settings have any affect on already created worlds, so don't worry about them. On connection to the server the world settings are sent to the client, and the version is verified (since 0.4.3). You can still connect to servers that don't use the mod at all, or that are running a world that doesn't use it, the version check is skipped entirely in these cases.
