Easy Petting

Farm work definitely takes time, whether you’re watering your crops or caring for your cattle. This involves having to pet each and every animal in the morning to share some love and keep them happy. Once you manage to collect tons of animals, however, you might have a bit of trouble figuring out which animal you’ve already pet.

Luckily, this mod keeps track of who you’ve already cared for by displaying a heart over their head. When you’ve already pet them, the heart will disappear. That way, you can easily keep track of which animal you’ve already greeted in the morning.

Secret Garden Greenhouse

This Stardew Valley mod mixes things up a bit by completing redecorating your old greenhouse. Instead of a big field, you’ll be greeted with a beautiful enchanted garden upon entering. The new greenhouse works exactly like the old one, but it has its own water source and the fields are spread out evenly to give a bit more variety when farming.

Tool Upgrade Delivery Service

Upgrading your tools is one of the many things you’ll be doing in Stardew Valley. Having better equipment makes farming easier by saving both stamina and time. Clint, the local blacksmith, is in charge of handling your equipment.

To make things a bit easier on your part, this mod adds a delivery service that ships your upgraded tools straight to your farm. That way, you won’t have to shave off precious hours of your day just to pick them up.

Line Sprinklers

Sprinklers are hands-down the best thing in the game. They water your crops for you so you won’t have to toil hours under the hot sun every morning. However, the sprinklers in Stardew Valley don’t offer much variety apart from the fact that they reach more tiles.

If you want a different type of sprinkler, this mod adds line sprinklers to the game. They water crops in a straight line and even come with their own iridium variants. Adding this mod is a great way to test new crop layouts, so go ahead and get creative.

All NPC Character Dialogue Expansion

It’s really hard to mingle with townsfolk when they don’t have many lines. At most, you can only talk to them certain times per day before they stay silent and carry on with their daily activities. If you want to expand NPC interaction, then this Stardew Valley mod is for you.

These added lines are all lore-friendly, so you won’t have to worry about the NPCs talking about things that are completely off the radar. Here’s what it adds to the game:

  • Dialogue possibilities frequently change with the season, as with vanilla, but this is more likely to happen than before.
  • Bachelors and bachelorettes become more flirty at 10 hearts.
  • There are a dozen or so new multiple choice dialogue prompts.
  • There is new day-before-festival dialogue for many characters (but not in excess).
  • Most characters have unique messages to acknowledge new year’s eve and new year’s day, instead of just treating it like another ordinary day.

Campfire Cooking

Aside from ambiance, the campfire doesn’t really do much in Stardew Valley. If you’re looking to change things up, this mod actually lets you cook meals using your campfire. Not only does it make you feel like a camper, but it also opens up the possibility of cooking before you even get a kitchen through the house expansion. Now you won’t have to settle for the expensive meals down at the pub.

Gift Helper

Giving gifts is the best way to raise your friendship (or romance level) with the NPCs in Stardew Valley. However, each person has their interests and prefer certain items over others. After all, not everyone has the same taste. You can find out their favorite items through local gossip or from the person themselves, or you could simply search it up online.

On the other hand, you can add this mod to your game that tells you what they like without having to access the internet. When you open the calendar, you can pull up a list of all the best things to give them as gifts on their birthday.

Fast Paths

Adding paths to your Stardew Valley farm lets you walk over dirt without slowing down. What this mod does, however, is speed up your walking speed. That way, you can navigate through your farm faster and build your design around your paths. Either that or you can just add in the speed boost regardless of what terrain you’re walking on.

Bigger  Backpack

Stardew Valley mod

There are two base backpack expansions in Stardew Valley, but sometimes it feels like you still don’t have enough space. If you want more carrying room, you can add this mod to have a much bigger backpack. This mod adds a new expansion at Pierre’s shop that, while costly, will add more space to your inventory. Well worth the investment if you like to mine or fish.
