After the blossoming year, it developed into thousands of mods that do everything from making fishing an easy hobby to the change in how animals need to be perceived. Henceforth, there has been a completely overhauled guide to the ideal Stardew Valley of how the game should look. This will also be a convenient guide for understanding the farm life and how the game looks like.

Most of these notes are found on the official Stardew Valley mod’s forum Or are the game’s Nexus Mods page, Both of them are getting amazing mods on a daily basis. If you’re still wondering, try playing it on a multiplayer level and see how it works out for you.

One of the most important things is to start before jumping in the bandwagon of starting a valley is getting the updates right. Since there is not any official support until now, there stands a probability that these mods will break and will be reinstalled later after the update.

It is a smart move to back up all your files and modify, in case you feel like there should be some changes. Try saving your data in the backup file, just to be safe.

How to install Stardew Valley mods

As they call it as most of these mods are with the easy modifications to the game’s XNB files. All you have to do is to install the modified XNB files and find the corresponding XNB file in the Stardew Valley ‘Content’ folder. The default location is “C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\Content”, after this you can replace the authentic XNB one that you have downloaded initially. Always create a back-up of the original in case you wish to extract the mod.

Stardew Modding API (SMAPI)

Mods that create few more complex alterations. It may require the “Stardew Modding API”, or SMAPI to summarise. It is a community-made API which is frequently been updated and it also allows oneself to use DLL mods. It can sound as a slight huge hassle for the installation of these mods as compared to the XNB ones. You’ll first need to install SMAPI and then download DLL mods to place into SMAPI’s mod folder. But, however, been said that it allows the mods to make the much deeper alteration to the game. The player can easily download the SMAPI on the Stardew Valley modding forum and we will mark the mods that will be required in usage. 

Stardew Valley ModManager (SDVMM)

ModManager has made a great community which is known as SDVMM. It will help in installing and updating the SMAPI to keep the track of all the mods. It allows us to activate and deactivate various specific mods without extracting the files completely and providing more flexibility if you wish to try something on the list and potentially, to keep the mod for a lifetime!
