Valheim: Mods not working in Hearth and Home Update
The mods which are currently available for Valheim don’t have proper support for the new Hearth and Home Update of Valheim. This means that these mods are not compatible with the current version of the game and that is the reason why most mods are not working in-game.
It is often noticed that with all the mods active while loading in the Hearth and Home Update of Valheim, the game fails to start. This is because all mods rely on Unity Engine hooks through BepInEx or Harmony which aren’t compatible with the new update. So, the solution, for now, is to disable all the mods in-game for the time being and let the modders make them compatible with the current version of the game.
However, if you are really interested to try the mods on the new version, you need to check if the devs changed the Unity Engine version and then download and overwrite the DLLs with their unstripped version for the game. This method was suggested by a Reddit user, so there is no actual confirmation if this actually works. So, all we can do now is wait and let the modders do their job.
