'Valheim' player builds the Eiffel Tower in seriously impressive feat of engineering

Building custom structures lies at the heart of Valheim, Iron Gate Studio and Coffee Stain Studios’ immensely popular game that’s centred around establishing your own custom Viking settlements in the tenth Norse world. 

One player decided to take the game’s structural possibilities to the next level, building the famously complex Eiffel Tower from the ground up — and lucky for us, they made a timelapse video of the process.

YouTuber Vot Te Game does engineer Gustave Eiffel proud, painstakingly laying out a custom cross-hatch wood design, piece by piece, to resemble the real tower’s complicated, wrought-iron lattice body. According to the YouTube video, the structure took “two people, two weeks, 40K blocks and a lot of patience.” As PC Gamer points out, this was probably done with creative mode cheats to unlock unlimited resources — which also explains why you can see the character building mid-air.

The thing that makes this design even more impressive, though? The designer built it with lighting in mind, as you’ll see the frame is embedded with torches (by the way, these usually have to be refilled individually, so we hope they have a cheat for that too). Plus, they included the Eiffel Tower’s visitor levels, including those with restaurants.
