How to generate a custom world seed for your Valheim service

Looking to play on a specific world seed? This article has got you covered on how to do so.

Note: This requires you to have the PC version of Valheim, this will allow you to copy the world from your local installation to the server.

Note: You will also need to disable cloud saves in order to retrieve both .db & .fwl files.

How to generate a custom world seed for your valheim service

Start the Valheim game on your PC.
Select your character in-game and click Start
On the start window, click New
Enter the world name you wish to use and the custom seed you want to play on.
Click Done, select the world afterwards and click Start.
Using File Explorer on your desktop, go to C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\LocalLow\IronGate\Valheim\worlds_local
You'll be using both the .db & .fwl files of your world you just created
Open FileZilla (If you don't know how to connect to your service you can follow this article) and connect to your service.
Proceed to the .config\unity3d\IronGate\Valheim\worlds_local folder and upload both .db & .fwl files there.
Proceed to the startup section of your control panel now, and under the World Name Variable, enter your world name you just uploaded (Example: if the file names are "Dedicated.db & Dedicated.fwl" the world name will be "Dedicated", enter this into the variable input box).
