Stardew Valley | 30 mods to build a Stardew Valley 2 In this article? Oh, nothing much. Just the procedure to triple the content of the best game in the world and make it even more beautiful. Just the usual... :bandit:

There are over 9,800 mods for Stardew Valley. Some essential, some optional, some great, some questionable, some huge, some tiny. It's a gold mine, but you get lost very quickly. So I wanted to offer you a list of turnkey mods, which work right away and which is quite limited - 30 mods, not more - to avoid the installation taking three hours. The goal: to enrich the game considerably with a ton of new content, but also to renew it visually by giving it a more melancholic, more pastoral look.

All these mods are compatible with each other, up to date and without "triples the loading time" problems. Download them all (see box) and you have your Stardew Valley 2 without crashes or endless fiddling with the game files. For even more novelty, when creating a game, select the option that mixes the packages in the community center to have different objectives from those of your last adventure.


The colors are less blinding than in the base game, but they also create a more relaxing atmosphere.

Me, pickaxe and my fields. When looking for more content for Stardew Valley, the essential mod is Stardew Valley Expanded (SVE) This behemoth, acclaimed by the game community, adds 15 characters, 270 events, 50 locations and expands the Joja Mart branch of the main storyline. Very importantly, it also changes the terrain of the starting farm. Compatibility with SVE was one of the main criteria for selecting the mods in this list.

Once SVE is installed, there is no need to multiply the content mods : I just used Canon-friendly Dialogue Expansion to enrich the dialogues of the basic game and to New Clothes Every Day to bring variety to the hero's clothing. Finally, I chose the iconic Tractor Mod to provide agriculture with a powerful (but expensive) new tool.

After trying them, I can't do without a number of mods that improve the gameplay either. It goes from Lookup Anything and its integrated wiki. (pressing F1 while aiming at any object opens a very useful form). Forecaster Texts that tells you the weather forecast for the next day without having to watch TV, by way of Carry Chest which allows you to move the boxes even when they are full. In this regard, let's give a collective thumbs up to Convenient Chests and its tool to automatically put the right items in the right boxes.

The old one is a warm color. After that comes the big part: the graphics. The list is long, so I won't comment on everything, but remember that the most crucial element is to choose the right "recolor", the mod that will change the color palette of the whole game. In general, the idea is to reduce the brightness of Stardew Valley's colors to give them a pastel tint, a bit outdated, capable of resting the eyes and giving a little old-fashioned touch to the adventure. But beware, many of the most popular recolors are just dull and grayish, like Vibrant Pastoral Recolor or the Wittily Named Recolor. My preference is for Starblue Valley which manages to keep the colors bright, but I was very hesitant with the salmon elegance of the Rosier Colored Glass.

Couple that with mods that give buildings a picturesque architecture (Medieval Buildings, Rustic Country Town Interiors) as well as a series of mods that replace everything with grass and foliage, and you have a very different game. All you have to do is change the interface, the portraits and the animals (I never noticed before, but the basic animals in Stardew Valley are terrifying) and you're done! You just have to launch the game and say to yourself that no, finally after spending all this time modding, the desire to play is gone, it is better to uninstall it.


Fall (right) is probably the most beautiful season to appreciate the new foliage and its colors.


Summer at the farm.


The community center in the fall.
