How To Add Mods To Stardew Valley 2020

Technically speaking, a “mod” is just a package of files. That package changes your Stardew Valley world in some way, most of the time in the way you would prefer to. For example:

  • Mods can contribute to the game with some specific features (ex. showing NPCs on the map),
  • Change game mechanics (ex. fences preserve looks for longer),
  • Create cosmetic changes (ex. your pet is fully customized),
  • And Much More

To take advantage of mods you should:

  1. Install SMAPI – That’s the mod loader for Stardew Valley. SMAPI launches the game with mod support and lets mods interact directly with the game code and that interaction creates wonders. SMAPI is safely installed alongside your regular Stardew Valley game, and you can uninstall it anytime you want.
  2. Unzip mods into your Stardew Valley Mods folder.
