So now Stardew Valley has been Officially Released for Mac and Linux I thought I would post about mods I am using. I don't know how well the mods work on Mac and Linux -- though I plan to test the Linux ones, natch -- but this is just here for general reference. Also, for an overview of mods on an Official Review Site, here's one on PC Gamer.

I basically categorize the types of mods I use into two: gameplay mods and cosmetic mods. There are also two install methods. In one, you backup your Stardew Valley folder (backup: important), and then replace a particular file with a mod file. So you can replace the file for cows with a new file and viola, different cows! In another, you use a mod manager called SMAPI. You place the mods inside the SMAPI folder, then launch the game from SMAPI. (This is used for more complex mods, like "make fishing easier" and "let me summon my goddamn horse").

Note: it's good to install mods from a reputable source, and I use either nexusmods or stardewmods.

So, ONWARD.

Gameplay Mods to save time, mental energy, and head desking

    Time Speed Adjust the day length so if you don't want to feel rushed, you don't have to ([personal profile] tyger this mod is for you!)
  • NPC Map Locations For when you have to give an NPC a quest item/present and don't feel like finding out where they are/might be on the wiki every 5 minutes.

  • Chest Labels because my memory is not that great and this way I can actually sort things and not go "where the fuck is that thing I need" all the time

  • Signs for your fruit trees so you can remember what you planted, where

  • Tapper's dream mod (technically a cheat) makes the non-fruit trees grow in winter and other things that just make them easier to grow. Note: because it makes it easier to harvest the seeds so they grow on purpose rather than everywheres, can affect lumber production if you don't stay on top of purposeful planting

  • Horse Whistle which teleports your horse to your location. Which just...trust me, if you don't have a horse yet. IT'S BETTER.

  • Slower fence decay because I have better things to do than repair fences all the goddamn time

  • Show sell price so you can scroll over your inventory and see item sell price


    • There's also an easier fishing mod that might be useful (linked from PC Gamer article) but it's not from one of the modding sites I usually use.

      Cosmetic mod post coming later when I'm not trying to adulting.
