Valheim is a game that brings out the creative juices in players, whether they create castles from their favorite movies or try out their own designs. One player, a Warcraft fan who goes by the Steam user name of "F3Rs" has managed to recreate the dwarven capital of Ironforge in Valheim.

 Ironforge, one of the oldest cities in Azeroth, should be a familiar sight to anyone who's played World of Warcraft. This city, built into the snowy mountain peak of Khaz Modan, is mostly a large cavernous locale under the earth, just how dwarves like it. However, there's still a portion of it above the surface that consists of some stone towers and a large gate. And that's the part F3Rs recreated. In an hour-long video, F3Rs shows off the sped-up process of shaping and mining the mountain peak as he builds the aboveground part of Ironforge. You can see a shorter version that shows off the final creation below:

Like with Helm's Deep, mods played a big part in the construction. In particular, F3Rs used the True Creative Mode mod, which effectively gives players a Creative Mode like in Minecraft to build free from worries about constraints like tool durability, enemies, and carrying capacity. Unfortunately, it's currently not available for download because its page on Nexus Mods is hidden. The only reason, as explained by mod creator "mabridgland," is due to too many bugs. While this version of Ironforge may not have the great underground city part, it's still an impressive and imposing sight.

Valheim is available on Steam. As for the True Creative Mode mod, you can find it here on Nexus Mods, but it's currently hidden due to "too many bugs here."
