Valheim 0.145.6 patch notes: Disappearing tombstone & hearth smoke fix, save system changes, more

Studio Iron Gates continues to improve its megahit survival RPG Valheim, which has sold over two million copies in less than two weeks since the release.

The latest update for the Early Access game brings fixes to some buggy interactions and introduces several improvements to the game's save system.

Probably the biggest fix released with this update is the one regarding disappearing tombstones.

When you die in Valheim and respawn back in your bed, you still need to go to the location of your death to collect your belongings from your "corpse" which is represented with a tombstone.

But, apparently, some players were encountering a rather annoying issue where sometimes tombstone would simply fail to appear, which can be quite problematic, as you will be left without all the items you had in your inventory the moment you died. Luckily, today's patch should fix this issue.

Patch 0.145.6 also bring a fix to "hearth smoke building " which is probably related to the accumulation of smoke when you build a campfire inside your house. We are not exactly sure how will this affect the game, but we will check!

In addition, Patch 0.145.6 introduces several changes and improvements to the game's save system, one of them being that the game will now autosave every 20 minutes instead of 30.
