More Music

Stardew Valley More Music Mod

Download here

A straightforward mod that does its job well. Stardew Valley has roughly two full hours of original music in it already, but much of that is spread across four seasons and different locations, weather conditions, etc. It's not unreasonable to want a few more songs added to your farming routine. Modder Drogean has borrowed seamlessly looping songs from the likes of Undertale, Dropsy, and more to give Stardew Valley a little more variety without feeling too far out of its style. Additionally, the songs have been put over ambient sound tracks, meaning the world won't otherwise feel quiet while they're playing. It's a small touch, but one that makes a big difference.

In-Game Cheat Menu

Download here (requires SMAPI)

This is a very far complex and impressive mod that adds an extensive cheat menu inside the game. You can teleport anywhere, adjust your skill levels on the fly, change the weather, freeze time, give yourself money, increase movement speed, turn on god mode, adjust fishing difficulty, make your watering can never run out, and a whole heck of a lot more—all from within the game. The cheat menu actually has some features of other mods on this list built in, so if you liked the look of some of the mods on the previous page, they may be covered here.

CJB Item Spawner

This mod—potentially combined with the cheat menu above from the same modder—might be the closest Stardew Valley gets to having a "creative mode" for a while. You can spawn any items you may want directly into your inventory, allowing you to build your dream farm immediately. Flick on the cheat menu's infinite stamina option and freeze time, and you could build the entire thing before the first day even passes. Item spawners are a powerful tool, and hopefully this will lead to some amazing looking farms that would otherwise taking hundreds of hours to create.

Weather Controller Mod

Download here (requires SMAPI)

Want to save yourself some watering? Just make it rain! This mod adds a console command that lets you set the weather to whatever you'd like in the middle of the game. Sure it doesn't make sense that it's snowing in Summer, but don't focus too hard on that. Just enjoy your new godlike powers and bring the thunder.  

Stardew Valley Save Editor

This save editor is a seperate tool, not technically a mod, that allows you to adjust certain variables about your save file without having to dig around in a text editor. Sure, you could use it to cheat money and power into your game, but it also lets you do more difficult things than that. You can rename your farm, change your outfit, and even move farm buildings—all things that were otherwise unchangeable once set. The save editor can be used to cheat your way through the game, but it can also be used to subtly adjust variables that you couldn't control any other way, making it a valuable tool even for those of us using no mods at all.
