How to turn on creative mode in Valheim

To turn on creative mode in Valheim, you must first type imacheater and then follow it by debugmode; after this, you will be in creative mode.

Once creative mode is activated, you can then use the following controls.

  • B for no placement cost mode; also you to build things without it costing any precious resources.
  • K to kill all bad things in the area.
  • Z to toggle fly mode.

Also, while in creative mode, you will be able to craft anything you want instead of choosing from a traditional spawn menu, which in the end is a more hands-off take on the conventional creative mode.

How to spawn items in Valheim

If you want to spawn items in Valheim, you can do so by typing imacheater in the console and then follow by spawn (itemName) (Amount) or (Level). If you want to spawn an item, you will need to type, for example, Amber 20. 

But if you want to spawn an entity or monster, you will need to type Boar followed by the level you want it to be. That said, you can spawn many items and entities, so check out the helpful guide steam user Sonata made for the entire spawn list.
