FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):
Is this compatible with Stardew Valley Expanded?
Yes, yes it is.
Is this compatible with (insert mod here)?
Ridgeside Village barely touches any vanilla/base game assets besides a small portion of the Bus Stop, and so, is fairly compatible with any other mod out there!
Do I need to start a new game to play this mod?
Nope! On the contrary, this mod is safe to install in an existing save. Though it is still BEST installed for a new playthrough for the best experience.
What will happen if I install this mod mid-save?
Nothing game breaking! Just the new NPCs acting like they already know the farmer/lack of introductions, sudden influx of events, and maybe random bushes or two in altered maps.
My quests and special order boards are blank!
