This incredibly awesome add-on created by a talented group of modders adds a complete aquarium to the game. Similar to Animal Crossing, the fish you donate to the aquarium become exhibits that you can see for yourself. The aquarium itself is located in a new beach area accessible via train in Pelican Town.
For those of us who are really struggling to choose a farm type when starting a new farm, Farm Extended provides the standard farm benefits of all specialty farms. The expanded farm has dedicated areas for fishing, foraging and mining, as well as fenced areas designed to prevent animals from escaping. Modder Forkmaster also added a wagon stop behind the farm for quick travel to other parts of the city directly from home.
Bath house improvement
Despite all the improvements Robin can add to her country house, she apparently wants to keep the bathhouse north of town to herself. This mod to add a bathroom to the second farm update gives you a private home spa to refresh your energy on busy farm days. This mod will not work with any other mod that changes the interior design of the second farm, so be careful!
Jamie’s Balanced Greenhouse
There are a ton of modifications to expand the greenhouse, most of which are excessively large. Personally, I don’t want to do all my farming inside the greenhouse. Jamie’s balanced greenhouse is a perfectly modest expansion of greenhouse space. Converts the center plot to a 15×15 square, which means you can place iridium or medium sprinklers evenly. It also adds 12 individual square plots intended for tree planting, as we were all planting our fruit trees in a ring around the default greenhouse plot.
Pelican Town may be a country town, but that doesn’t mean its villagers should settle for their average cup of coffee every morning. Coffee Shoppe adds a new espresso machine to create fancy drinks like maple macchiatos and mint mocha. There are a number of new pastry recipes that you also add for cake pops and petite fours to pair with these stylish urban drinks.
If you are running a trade with multiple other farmer friends, it can be difficult to keep track of which houses belong to which friends. Cabin Owner Shown is a quick fix that displays the name of a cabin owner when he logs in. No more pranking the wrong friend by accident.
Another useful way to control your multiplayer friends is the Multiplayer Backpacks mode, which lets you see what all of your fellow farmers are carrying. Ideally, you can use it to better plan as a group, but if you just need it to find out who’s been grabbing all the hoes, you can too.
Now that the official Stardew Valley multiplayer support is out, we no longer need the improvised multiplayer mod, but there are always higher heights that mod makers can aspire to. Unlimited Players removes the limit on the cabins that can be built on a farm and the limit on the number of farmers that can join a session. Only the player hosting the multiplayer session needs to install Unlimited Players, which means they may surprise some strangers with overcrowded farms.
Always on the server
This mod puts the farm host into a deep sleep, allowing the world to continue running without them playing games. This allows the rest of the farmers to play even when the host is not present, and the mod is smart enough to pause the action when no one is active so time doesn’t pass. The host will have to leave the game running on his computer, but that’s a small price to pay for a farm that never sleeps.
Warp to Friends adds an additional menu to Stardew Valley that shows the location of all the other farmers and a button to go directly to them. Especially useful for helping new friends if they get lost or need help in the depths of the mines.
