Stardew Valley Expanded
We’re starting it out with arguably the best mod of not only last month, but likely of the year so far. This mod expands Stardew Valley in a way that feels like it comes straight from Eric Barone himself.
Not only are the visuals improved, but tons of new content is added as well. This includes:
- 12 new locations (five exterior and seven interior).
- 38 new character events.
- Over 500 location messages.
- Reimagined maps and festivals (all maps).
- Remastered Immersive Farm 2.
- And a new town map reflecting all changes.
Each main NPC has a whole new story event that adds background to their character and lore to the community of Stardew Valley itself. All of these events are interactive and contain sub events within them, so your choices will affect how the NPC event plays out.
Tiny new details have been added everywhere across the map, and the seasonal events have been adjusted with new dialog and decorations too.
There is also an optional download that lets you try a totally remastered immersive farm, with a new layout and several secret areas. The map is a remaster of zanderb14’s Immersive Farm 2 map, which released earlier this year in January.
In all, this mod is absolutely massive and is perfect for returning players who want Stardew Valley to feel fresh and new again. New players will get an even better experience if they download this mod before trying out the game as well.
It’s already at almost 100K downloads on Nexus Mods at the time of writing, even though it only released in early April.
