Stardew Valley multiplayer mod makes sharing invite codes easy

Stardew Valley's long-awaited multiplayer is finally here, and while it's still in beta, it's already pretty darn great. Developer Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe) is in the process of smoothing out kinks and integrating features and changes suggested by players, and I reckon Nexus modder CatCattyCat (opens in new tab) has a winning suggestion on their hands. 

Their new quality of life mod (which you can download here (opens in new tab)) lets you copy multiplayer invite codes to your clipboard and easily paste them into messages to your friends, which is much better than typing or saying the whole dang thing one character at a time. Here's a look at the mod's easy-to-use interface, which is accessed via the "Show Invite Code" menu (clipboard icon by Oomps62 (opens in new tab)):

You'll need to be in Stardew Valley's multiplayer beta to use the mod, naturally, and you'll also need the beta version of SMAPI (opens in new tab), Stardew's go-to mod loader. From there, just download CatCattyCat's mod and place it in your mods folder. You can find more detailed mod installation instructions in this handy wiki guide (opens in new tab).
