Instead of placing sprinkers in certain areas of your greenhouse, with this mod you can now pay Robin to install ceiling sprinklers that water the whole of your greenhouse every morning.

You can also level up the sprinklers, making it so they run every morning and every night as well.

And for those who really hate watering their crops, leveling up these sprinklers a final time will allow Robin to add a network of hidden sprinklers underground all over your farm, which water all crops in the morning and the evening.

You’ll never have to worry about bringing along that cumbersome watering can ever again.

The next inclusion is actually four mods all from the same creator aedenthorn. It includes the Advanced Loot Framework mod, the Treasure Chests Expanded mod, the Overworld Chests mod, and Fishing Chests Expanded mod.

The Advanced Loot Framework provides an API for creating custom chests and loot lists which pairs with the three chest expansion mods. It’s sure to make getting to your items a lot easier.

The Overworld chest mods spawns random treasure chests throughout the Stardew Valley world every set number of days. Whereas the treasure and fish expansion chests greatly expands the range of items which can be found in the underground and fishing chests.

Capstone Profession

In Stardew Valley you get to choose between certain perks when you level up skills. However, there is no choice when you actually max out all your sets of skills.

This mod adds one final perk, allowing you to choose between making the day 20% longer or gaining a 5% profit on everything that ships from your farm.

Getting 100% for all your skills should come with a decent perk after all.

Greenhouse Gatherers

Best New Stardew Valley Mods January 2021

This Greenhouse Gatherers mod allows the sweet little Junimos to finally harvest crops inside buildings.

You will be able to make a new craftable item called the Harvest Statue, and when placed in your greenhouse Junimos can come in and collect up your crops for you. Not only do they collect crops, but they forage products and collect fruit from trees as well.

The Harvest Statue can only be placed indoors, and there can only be one per building.

Right clicking the Harvest Statue will open up a chest-like inventory, allowing you to extract the harvested items whenever you wish.

Goddess Statue Obelisk

Best New Stardew Valley Mods January 2021

Last but not least we have the Goddess Statue Obelisk mod, which has over 12,000 downloads at the time of writing.

This mod replaces the existing obelisks of Earth, Water, Desert, and Island, (and adds a new Farm one) with unique sprites of five beautiful goddesses pictured above.

For those not familiar with obelisks, they are placeable items that allow you to warp to various areas of the map. They are purchasable from the Wizard at the Wizard’s Tower after finishing the Goblin Problem quest, and for the Island Obelisk after unlocking Ginger Island as well.
