The ridiculously large Stardew Valley 1.4 update is out

Posted by , | Views: 18,415

Stardew Valley, that relaxing and colourful game about taking over a worn-down farm just had a big 1.4 update release with a ton of new content and bug fixes.

The full details of the update are…how do I put this? Humongous? Yeah, that sounds about right. Looking over the changelog, I honestly don't know where to begin to talk about it.

For new content, there's a lot. 24 new hair styles, 181 new shorts, 35 hats, 14 new bottoms (pants) like skirts and shorts, 38 decorative items, two new fish, a Dark Sword, Golden Scythe, Workbench, Woodchipper and…you get the idea right? A lot of new stuff to find. In a relationship you don't like? Give them the boot with a Wilted Bouquet.

Plenty of multiplayer enhancements too. You can have seperated money, private messages, a ping command, a kick command, ban/unban commands, each farmer now has their own separate mailbox and spouse porch area, you can each now build a cellar and more. Nice to see such improvements, gives them the opportunity to keep on expanding what's possible for Stardew online.

On top of that it features a whole bunch of gamepad improvements too! There's an on-screen keyboard, left/right bumper hotkey for inventory menus, improved gamepad navigation in multiple screens, an added ability to stow an item freeing up your hands, switching between keyboard/mouse and gamepad is less finicky, improved placement login for crops and a gamepad and so on.

Another nice addition is the new large screenshot feature, letting you take a shot of your whole farm. I think I have a lot of work to do (click to enlarge):

Screenshots are stored in ~/.local/share/StardewValley/Screenshots/

Hard not to laugh at some of it though, like NPCs now actually close their eyes and do a sleeping pose when they go to bed. Poor people, having to sleep with their eyes open until now.

If you head to this page, it contains the full changelog with spoilers, just be prepared to scroll for a while.

If you wish to pick up a copy, you can do so on Humble Store, GOG and Steam. Do I recommend it? Without a doubt in my mind, it's a beautiful game.

Wow, you weren't kidding about the length of that changelist! I'm torn between wanting to know what's changed, and actually getting the experience of finding some of it out for myself for once.

Edit: Ooo, 14 new music tracks? Time to update my Stardew Valley OST folder…

PangaeaI sent an email directly to the developer to ask about this. Partly to inform about the lack of a GOG Linux build in case he wasn't aware of it, and partly in a hope that he can do something to make this happen on GOG's end. It's very frustrating. Time and time again Perhaps Eric has 2000 emails and won't get through it until mid-January, but it was worth a shot.

If it was possible to buy and download the game directly from the developer I'd probably just do that instead to be honest. No more problems.
1.4 is released on GOG for Linux now!

Yep, good to finally have it! Installed, updated SMAPI and UI Info suite and it started up. Good first sign

Ha. My username is supposed to be (and used to be) 014, but it was converted by some website DB process I'm guessing. My avatar is a 0, 1, and 4 all in one.
