Modding Stardew Valley to make it feel like Animal Crossing

I’m not myself an Animal Crossing fan (or a “Crossie”, as I consider they prefer to be known as), however I do know the sport is large information in the meanwhile, as a result of roughly the whole remainder of the RPS workers have been happening about it. They’re all at it, and it’s like individuals speaking in a secret language I don’t perceive. Someone please purchase and ship me a Switch.

The closest I believe I get to enjoying Animal Crossing is enjoying Stardew Valley. This isn’t a foul commerce off, as a result of Stardew Valley is excellent, and seems on a lot of our bestest greatest lists (like greatest RPGs, greatest administration video games, and greatest co-op video games). But within the spirit of inquiry, I’ve been investigating mods which make Stardew Valley really feel extra like Animal Crossing. Spoilers: you possibly can’t do something very drastic. I’m not about to disclose a complete conversion mod, right here. But you may make a few small however important modifications.

Part of my course of concerned discovering out what Animal Crossing is definitely like, so I attempted researching amongst my colleagues, however obtained caught for a very long time on understanding the hierarchy of fruit within the recreation. What fruit you get to begin with is outwardly as monstrously vital as it’s completely meaningless.

Anyway, from what I collect, Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing have already got a variety of overlap in that each video games contain farming, repetitive chores, and lovebombing individuals with produce till they’re your folks. Both video games fulfil roughly the identical mighty want. One large distinction, nonetheless, is that point in Animal Crossing is measured out in keeping with an correct 24 hour clock, so if it’s 11:20 am in actual life, that’s what time it’s in your AC city, and it’ll take 10 precise minutes till it’s 11:30. In Stardew Valley, in the meantime, a day is about 17 minutes, and you’ll solely keep up till 2am anyway.

There are a few mods which put Stardew Valley onto an correct, 24 hour clock, though some at the moment are old-fashioned. There’s the easy sufficient Real Time, for instance, though I want TimeSpeed (and going by the downloads, so do a great deal of others) as a result of it comes with a time freeze operate, and you may also pace up and decelerate time at your whim.

The second large distinction is that in Stardew Valley, you possibly can solely save by hauling ass all the way in which again to your home with a purpose to get into mattress and have a sleep. You can principally solely shut the sport after enjoying out a full day, or progress will reset to the beginning of the latest day once you load the sport once more. This is smart in a recreation the place the times take 1 / 4 of an hour to move, however particularly should you’re staring down the barrel of a 24 hour play session, you don’t wish to should energy by means of to the tip earlier than you possibly can give up. So Save Anywhere is principally important.

Unfortunately, the mod that whacked the AC music into Stardew Valley obtained axed for utilizing Nintendo music, however you need to use this cool Animal Crossing Music plugin for Chrome to get basically the identical impact. It performs the suitable music for the precise time of day, and Graham and Katharine each rave about it on a regular basis. You simply want to show off the Stardew Valley music and have this dangerous boy enjoying within the background.

By the by, should you’ve not completed a variety of modding, or have by no means modded Stardew Valley earlier than, it’s best to in all probability first obtain SMAPI, which is a quite simple to make use of, very suitable mod loader for Stardew Valley. It comes with very comprehensive instructions, and the creator, Pathoschild, even has a listing of advisable mods for a first playthrough.

I’d additionally recommend Simple Crop Label, which is nice should you’re not in a position to determine crops simply by trying on the seeds. But in all probability my favorite of Pathoschild’s advisable mods is the Stone Bridge Over Pond mod. It whacks an enormous ol’ bridge over the pond on the backside of your farm, which can be much less picturesque, however does make life very barely simpler. And isn’t that what intensive farming is all about?

It’s value noting that, whereas there aren’t masses of any stripe, there are different small mods that don’t use SMAPI, however add a little bit of AC aptitude to your recreation. If you’re into customized furnishings, there’s a complete set themed around the New Leaf Mermaid series. This popular one modifications the little worms to be present in Stardew Valley into the Animal Crossing digspot marker. And should you really feel prefer it, you possibly can change all the ducks in the game into Scoot. I haven’t examined these ones, so I can’t say for certain they gained’t make your PC explode, however they’re cute concepts.
