Sorry to cross-promote, but I think you’ll really like it! The mod adds the floaty thought bubbles over
villagers to indicate their favorite gifts from your inventory and when they’d
like to talk. The idea is to make it easier to manage friendships with
villagers without having to spend time on the wiki or other mod menus.
Please check it out and let me know if you think it’s useful!
