Epic Daily Views of Earth #

From the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory stationed at Earth-Sun Lagrange-1 (L-1). Here’s a picture of the dark side of the moon as it crossed Earth’s path in 2015.

Valheim Server Trouble

Having trouble connecting to a Valheim server that has been set up by yourself or a kind friend? Try the following:

Dedicated Server

  1. Make sure the dedicated server is set up and running.
  2. Open Steam and launch Valheim. Create a character if you haven’t already.
  3. Alt-tab back to Steam and on the top menu click ViewServers.
  4. On the bottom-right, click Add A Server and type the server DNS name or IP address followed by a colon and 2456, 2457, or 2458. For example: servername.host.tld:2457 or 00.000.00.000:2457. Then click Find Games at This Address, then click the server name in the server list, then on Add Selected Game Server To Favorites.
  5. Double-click the server name in the favorites list (if you don’t see it, click the Refresh button on the bottom). Type the server password and click OK.
  6. Alt-tab back to Valheim, select the character you want to play with and click Start. Type the server password in the input that appears then press Enter.

Hopefully this will fix your Valheim dedicated server connection troubles.

Regular In-Game Server

Having trouble finding a server hosted from within Valheim? Try this:

  1. Make sure all people who want to play together are logged into Steam Friends & Chat.
  2. Make sure you or a friend started the server with both Start Server and Community Server checkboxes checked, and that a password has been set and sent to the others.
  3. Make sure the person who started the server is in-game on the server.
  4. Have the people joining the server open Steam Friends & Chat, click on the name of the person who started the server, and click Join Game. Then input the password.

Enjoy the digital wilderness!

Weekly Highlights 19 #

A few highlights from the past week of streaming:

My day job is taking most of my time in February so my schedule has changed and I will be streaming less and somewhat more haphazardly during this month. I apologize for that, but until the streaming can pay the bills I have to keep up with work when I am lucky enough to get a gig.

Thank you so much for visiting my streams and brightening my day.
