Once you activate commands in Valheim, you can use another command called exploremap to reveal the entire world map. However, using the exploremap command won't reveal locations in your game. If you want to reveal locations, you need to use another cheat command. Luckily, you can use the printlocations command to display a list of locations in the console near you.

In the console list, you should see coordinates posted alongside the locations. You can use the goto command followed by the coordinates to teleport to them. The printlocations method will only reveal locations close to you, but if you want to reveal all locations, you must use third-party tools such as Valheim World Viewer or Seed Viewer

What is Valheim World Viewer, and how to use it?
