About 25 days in. The strawberries grew nicely, and are still producing seeds. I'm also getting a bit more income by reaping the benefits of those "Spring Rewards" seeds at the moment. I mined a bit too hard one night and passed out in the street. Thanks, Jojo...

Also, no girls wanted to dance with me at the first Flower Dance. Well, fuck you all too!

Cellars! If they're expandable, maybe I won't need to build spare barns for my brewing operations.

I wonder if "new farm types" means that the farm layouts are now completely randomized, or if it's something you select at the start of the game.

I believe there are now five farm types, depending on what you want to focus on, i.e. a fishing farm type with rivers, a mining farm type with a quarry area, a fighting farm type where monsters can spawn around your house etc.

I presume the layouts are still set, you just choose what kind of farm you want at the start. I'm all for more variety around the farm, if you look at my screenshots earlier in the thread I'm certainly not the type to go ham on turning everything to garden.

I guess this is becoming my primary podcast-listening-game again, sorry Rebel Galaxy and Blood Bowl. :pac

Actually if you go to the farm planner website you can preview what each of the farms looks like, use the [Layouts] drop-down.

So is 1.1 automatically downloaded to your computer when you start the game, or is there a process that needs to be done first?

Anything on Steam will automatically update itself assuming you haven't turned that feature off. So you probably already have 1.1 installed unless you keep Steam closed. If not it'll tell you via an "update required" or "update queued" next to the game(s) in your library.

I like his confusion about how it happened, the idea of sneaking up on rabbits with a lawnmower is pretty good.

I saw that Stardew Valley is now on PS4, and I'm considering trying it out (only $25 at Best Buy). I had thought that SV was sort of like a mobile game in that it was getting new content updates constantly. Is that incorrect, is it now a completed game?

It was always a completed game. Stardew was so content dense at launch that I still haven't seen all of it. But any game that sells this well and attracts as strong a following, especially if it's already a passion project like Stardew, is always gonna have continued content updates.

Get it, it's great.

Huh, I don't know how I got that impression. But yup, I will do so. Did you use any sort of guide to help you figure out how to do things? Or did you just go with the flow?

Aside from figuring out a few convenience things* I pretty much just winged it. Stardew has no particular time limits or missable events or whatever, so you can be as casual or as hardcore as you want.

* build yerself a storage chest early, that's probably one of the first things you'll need
* you can buy backpacks for more inventory space at the general store
* there's a bridge south of town you can repair for about 300 wood, could be useful
* sprinklers are clutch
* basically everyone likes sashimi and mayo

Since we were talking Stardew elsewhere, the big multiplayer update is still on the way, but apparently it'll also include new stuff for the main single player game. Only hint so far is we might be getting playable boats, or maybe an NPC boat we can take to a new area. So I'm looking forward to that a lot.

Yeah, just restarted since my old start file was in like, last March, and I forgot the chest by the house sold shit so I was using it thinking it was storage and lost all my starter seeds...

But I was only like 5 game days in, so whatever.

Already making way more progress and yes, I made 2 chests. Can't afford the backpack, though, which I desperately need. Should I sell all my parsnips or hold on to them for something? I'm still overwhelmed by the "what if I need this later?" aspect.

Once your crops are grown and harvested there's no particular raisin I can think of to hold onto them unless they're good for gifts or part of a recipe you wanna cook. But generally speaking there aren't many items in the game you can't find again later, especially crops. Pretty sure even the artifacts you can collect for the museum have duplicates laying around just in case you accidentally lose one.

If you do happen to lose something, or just wanna speed up searching for various items of interest, there's a special merchant who appears twice a week above the lake south of your farm who carries a randomized inventory. I'm fairly certain every item in the game has a chance to spawn on her list regardless of rarity, too.

Once you get the cutscene with the mayor about the community center you'll get a better idea of what sorta items you might wanna stockpile.

I would hold onto a few of each crop mostly because I was trying to fill out my recipe list and it was frustrating to learn a recipe that required strawberries the season after I sold them all.

Other than that the only real raisin to keep crops is to fill out the community centre, and if you want to win the autumn fair (you need 9 different items with gold stars, though I think it also needs to be a mix of plants and fish and shells and mushrooms etc).

There is also a seedmaker later on, so if you have a rare crop you could hold onto it to try and get more than one seed out of your harvest.
