Fatsack's Stardew Valley Modlist

/ 2 MIN read / MODDING

List of the mods used in my Stardew with M2 run. If there's any special config, or workaround for compatibility I'll mention it as well.

As of writing my Stardew Valley is version 1.4.5 for the Steam PC edition so, depending on when you're reading this, some or even all of these may be broken, outdated, or made obsolete. Be sure to check the latest updates, read the update notes, and poke around in the mod comment sections to get a feel if these mods still work. For multiplayer, both M2 and I have these mods installed.

  1. Farm Extended uses an outdated version of Farm Type Manager that comes bundled with the download. Thankfully, there’s an unofficial patch to the newer version on FTM’s Nexus page in the Option Files section that will enable the Farm Extended map to work properly. ↩︎

  2. NPC Map Locations has an extra file to make the farm on the map match the farm used in Extended Farm in the Optional Files section. ↩︎

  3. CJB Item Spawner was used when one of the quests to fetch specific items for NPCs bugged out and we needed another quest item. Otherwise it’s not needed unless you’re a filthy cheat. ↩︎

  4. Chests Anywhere has a Balanced version that we use. ↩︎
