Feature: Tread gently, for you tread on my cactus

New cactus mod for Stardew Valley has saved my chickens from a life of misery

Fear not, readers: I am still planning to turn my Stardew Valley farm into a battery chicken farm but progress has been slow on that front. Partly because I want to make it into a column called "Mother Cluckers" (which I, like your embarrassing uncle at every Sunday roast dinner, think is an extremely funny pun), but mostly because there are too many mods. And…

Stardew Valley’s next update will add “a significant new piece of endgame content”

If Stardew Valley were a flower it would be a perennial, constantly coming back each year with new blooms. Not long after releasing the massive 1.4 update that left a mark on every part of the game, developer ConcernedApe announced that he'd be working on yet another free content update. Over four years on, he's still got plans for new additions, which will include some…

Best Stardew Valley mods

I’m once again hacking my way through the undergrowth on the hunt for mods. This time it’s Stardew Valley, the game where you begin with a run-down farm and simply try and make it work. If you’re not terribly good at farming, don’t worry. I’m here to help. I’ve been picking games recently where the modders have expanded tools and mechanics in order to craft…

I am going to become a battery chicken farmer in Stardew Valley

I am not a very good Stardew Valley farmer. Really experienced players, who take their farming seriously, they know what's up. They make their own almanacs, they intensively farm pumpkins or sunflowers to get the best yeilds, and they know how to place sprinklers for peak watering efficiency. I do not know any of those things. My cruel predicament in Stardew is that really I…

Local man becomes Harvey from Stardew Valley to get his wife’s attention

I'll cop to the fact that Peter Chiykowski is only a local man if you, like him, live somewhere in Scotland, and on top of that, I actually suspect Peter may be having a little joke with us. But still, I found this tale of love and loss in Stardew Valley quite heartwarming. It all began back in February, when Chiykowski's wife discovered the inescapable…

Farmer recreates Nazca Lines in Stardew Valley, has my enduring respect

I first learnt about the Nazca Lines when I was quite small. There were a couple of Nancy Drew books knocking around at home, and one of the mysteries involved the Nazca Lines as a pivotal part of the solution. At the time, and because they were in a book, I assumed that they couldn't possibly be real - that nobody would make huge works…

Stardew Valley democratically decides to add banana “trees” next update

There was never really any question, was there? In the hierarchy of fruit popularity, bananas are right up there with apples and strawberries - not particularly exciting, but safe. Reliable. Always there when you need 'em. So when Stardew Valley asked players what fruit they'd like hanging out on their farms in the update 1.5, there was only ever one answer. Passionfruit was robbed.

This modder animated tons of furniture, food, and drinks in Stardew Valley

I'm always here for a nice Stardew Valley mod, especially one that's easy to slip into an existing save file without the pressure to start a brand new farm. Modder "Gervig91" has been hard at work on a suite of new mods that make a bunch of items in town just a bit more lively and sparkly. They've made animated versions of many of Stardew's…

Modding Stardew Valley to make it feel like Animal Crossing

I am not myself an Animal Crossing fan (or a "Crossie", as I believe they like to be called), but I know the game is big news at the moment, because approximately the entire rest of the RPS staff have been going on about it. They're all at it, and it's like people talking in a secret language I don't understand. Someone please buy and…

I am in awe of this Stardew Valley player’s one great trick to remember how many seeds they need

If you've ever made cautious forays into the online communities for Stardew Valley, you will know they are intimidating and inspiring in equal measure. Players post screenshots of their megafarms: "Autumn farm, year 6," they'll say, alongside a photo of vast fields of pumpkins, the space usage finely tuned to produce maximum yield for minimum effort. "Summer Year 4," another will announce, showing a holding…

Stardew Valley cheats and console commands (v1.4)

Every item has prerequisites, and the productivity of each day is dictated by your energy and the inevitable march of time. But our Stardew Valley cheats guide will walk you through how to break down all these limitations, from pausing time to spawning items, from insta-completing quests…

Developer ConcernedApe is celebrating the anniversary with a casual announcement that the sun is not setting on his continued work planting Stardew's future. He says that with Stardew Valley's extremely large 1.4 update now available on all platforms,…

This pacifist mod lets you hug all of Stardew Valley’s monsters

Alright folks, Stardew Valley just wasn't pleasant enough. The animals are cute, the spouses are cute, and even the monsters are cute. But you do have to kill the monsters and that is decidedly not cute. You've got to whack them with increasingly edgy swords as you dive deeper into the mines beneath the mountain. Who are you to come into the monsters' territory and smack…

This cute Stardew Valley mod adds Valentine letters from villagers

I've got over 200 hours in just regular, fresh out of the box Stardew Valley. I could probably keep on for another 200 without ever modding the game, but I've had my eye out lately for mods that would spruce up my I-don't-remember-how-manyth farm. Be My Valentine by Taskmaster on Nexus Mods is a small one, but just in time for actual Valentine's Day which…

Stardew Valley’s massive free update 1.4 finally arrives in 2 weeks

Stardew Valley is about to reap a bountiful harvest.

Forget fishponds: Stardew Valley’s next update has “everything”

Well, perhaps take that with a pinch of salt. Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone's upcoming work on the charming farming lifestyle sim won't contain the sum of all things. But that's what the Stardew Valley developer has begun calling the 1.4 update, and he's not exactly wrong. From fishponds to marriage, and dozens of vital little quality of life tweaks in between, very little is going to…
