The new items will only spawn in unexplored areas of the map in the biomes they're from. So if you have explored all of your Plains biomes, then you definitely will need to start a new world. If you haven't explored much you're probably fine to continue in the world you're in.

I'd recommend not getting TO attached to any map till the game is in retail release as future content additions will likely have the same requirement.

I'm fine with losing hundreds of hours of progress because to me this is all part of the process and I'm holding off on my real passion project building till retail release & just having fun till then. But I know some people are not prepared to let go of their maps and it's going to hurt! So just keep that in mind, have fun & play, but be ready to lose it all lol

The devs will continuously work on improving the support for controllers, gamepads, etc. The H&H update for example already contained some improvements (but afaik this was for the Xbox Controller only).

What I wantef to ask is:
What are the kind of game forums did/do you moderate. Do you prefer a specific genre/type of game?

Thank you! With the constant growth of the gaming industry and the rise of indie game developers and indie/micro publishers, I slowly migrated to working mainly within this industry. Previously, I have worked on streaming media platforms (e.g., streaming tv) and e-commerce sites. However, my first preference is with games as I enjoy them the most. I like mystery, sci-fi, simulation, puzzle, and survival games in no particular order. Some folks like music discovery; I love game discover... Read more

In short, content moderators ensure that user-generated content (UGC) is safe for users, is not illegal, and follows a platform's rules & guidelines. Of course, there is more to it than that, but that should give you a decent summary.

It has definitely been an exciting week for sure! As much as I would like to say that I know how users will react to a patch, I can't until it actually lands. Whether it is bug fixes or content being released, the reactions are diverse, to say the least. Content moderators have to be ready for an influx of activity across the grid, bringing challenges. Still, there is plenty of joy to be had as well.

You say "professionally". Does that mean you're actually paid? What kind of schedule do you work?

Thank you! As a content moderator, I get paid, but my work for Iron Gate is only on a volunteer basis. I am responsible for 127,001 users on Valheim alone and over 1.5 million users on and off the Steam platform. Due to the volume of users, my schedule runs around the clock. Therefore, I use a series of tools to ensure my job is more manageable.

Take care.

I'm doing well, got back from a vacation. I wasn't offended in any way. It was a conflict of interest, sadly. I needed to be able to perform my duties. It comes with the territory, I'm afraid.

Some individuals are curious about the world of content moderation, what it entails, and who takes on the task. Now is your chance to get to know one of your community moderators. You may ask anything, except for why someone in the community has been warned or banned. Please be respectful of one and another when discussing. Steam's rules and guidelines still apply in this thread.

Hi, my name is Node. I am a content moderator. I've been content moderating professionally since 2016 on various game hubs on Steam and communities outside of the Steam platform. While the work is challenging and trying at times, I enjoy ensuring that communities stay as safe as possible for others to enjoy.

NOTE: Discussions/questions of why you or someone in the community has been warned or banned are not permitted. Steam's rules and guidelines still apply in this thread.

For clarification: There are 2 test branches.

Public Test Branch, access for everyone. You get the code and instructions on Discord.

Private Test Branch, access only for verified and invited users.

The private testers (called "Protovikings") test major updates under NDA, the public testers can only test "normal" patches.

The folks taking part in the experimental branch submit plenty of negative feedback and are by no means "yes-men".

Like I said if you want to take part, join the Discord. Be a helpful community member, and you could possibly receive an invite. But, unfortunately, the branch is not available on Steam, nor is it available for download.

Such a branch exists, but you have to join Discord and be a good community member.

This is an early access game, you purchase it so that you get to be a tester of new features and give positive or negative feedback along with suggestions for new things. So it should really be expected that sometimes things will be released that you don't love. You give feedback on why it doesn't work and the developers look at it and see if it's valid & a change would benefit the game overall.

Re-balancing new mechanics are part of that cycle.

If you want a content release schedule that is more guaranteed, then ... Read more
