Eric Barone, aka ConcernedApe, Stardew Valley creator has recently announced the release date for the 1.6 update. Mark your calendars everyone, as you can expect to play with the new features in a couple of weeks! It will first arrive for PC users. Console and mobile release will follow as soon as possible. The 1.6 update was thought to be a smaller update in the beginning, but started expanding to include new items, festivals, villager winter outfits, dialogue, late-game content, improvements, and so much more.
If you accept Wizard's "Prismatic Jelly" special order quest, you'll need to venture into the mines, quarry mines or Scull Cavern, find the prismatic slime and kill it. This is a rare slime that you can find on any level. It's much more powerful than regular slimes. Once you manage to kill it, it'll drop the prismatic jelly 100% of the time in Stardew Valley. Visit the Wizard and give him this item in order to complete the special order. You'll receive 5 000 gold and a recipe for monster musk, item that will spawn more monsters around.
Barn is a farm structure you can purchase from Robin for 6 000g, 350 wood and 150 stone. After three days, the barn will be built and you can put animals in it or upgrade it. To upgrade the barn, you'll need to bring additional resources and select the big barn option in the carpenter's shop. Later, you can do the same for the deluxe barn in Stardew Valley, which can hold all barn animals. These animals include cows, ostriches, goats, sheep and pigs. All of them provide different products, which will be better quality if the animals are happy.
Pale ale is an artisan good you'll need for the Pam's quest in Stardew Valley. You can make it by placing hops in a keg. Hops is a summer vegetable crop and keg is a machine you can craft after you reach level 8 in farming. Alternatively, you can buy pale ale form Gus at the Ginger island Beach Resort. It's a rather profitable item, especially if you age it. Moreover, you can give it to many NPCs who like it and if you're playing with remixed community center bundles, you may need pale ale in the brewer's bundle.
Sam is one of the marriage candidates in Stardew Valley that you can date and marry. To do that, you'll first need to level up your relationship by talking to him and giving him favorite gifts. Once you reach eight hearts with him, you can start dating. Purchase the bouquet item from Pierre's and give it to Sam to start dating. Then, reach ten hearts and you'll be able to marry Sam in Stardew Valley. Purchase the mermaid's pendant from old mariner near tidal pools and give it to Sam and you'll have a wedding in three days.
Sam is a young guy with spikey blonde hair who's one of the marriage candidates in Stardew Valley. The gifts Sam loves in Stardew Valley are universally loved gifts, cactus fruit, maple bar, pizza and tigerseye. Sam likes the following items: most universally liked gifts, Joja cola and most eggs. The gifts Sam is neutral toward include most neutral gifts, most fruit and all milk items. The gifts Sam dislikes are most universally disliked items, most vegetables, many foraging items and seaweed. The items Sam hates are metal bars, ores, coal, mayonnaise, duck mayonnaise, pickles and most universally hated gifts.
Sturgeon is a fish that can only be caught in the mountain lake during summer and winter seasons in Stardew Valley. The weather doesn't matter. The sturgeon's fish icon will move rather quickly and will change the direction often. To make it easier to catch the sturgeon, make your fishing green bar longer, by leveling up the fishing skill and using food buffs and cork bobber tackle. You can place the sturgeon in a fish pond and it'll produce roe that you can turn into caviar. Also, sturgeon is required to complete the lake fish bundle in the community center.
Stardew Valley's community has created hundreds and even thousands of mods that everyone can play. In this guide, we've covered some of the best ones out there including Stardew Valley Expanded, CJB Cheats Menu, Tractor Mod, Automate, Bigger Backpack, DaisyNiko's Earthy Recolour, Ridgeside Village, UI Info Suite, Lookup Anything and more. These mods provide new additional content to the base game, as well as improvements to the existing mechanics, features and sprites.
To download and install Stardew Valley mods, you'll need to make sure you have created backups of your worlds just in case and also installed SMAPI, app that's necessary for running mods. Then, visit Nexus Mods page and find the mod you want. After that, you can download it by clicking on the "Manual" button and then "Slow Download" button. Once the mod is downloaded, you can open its zipped file using WinRAR. After that, simply drag and drop the file inside to a Stardew Valley Mods folder. To play with mods, run the StardewModdingAPI app.
Stardew Valley creator ConcernedApe or Eric Barone dropped another teaser for the1.6 update. In the image, we can see that villagers are wearing their new winter clothes. Players are seen holding and setting off red fireworks, which produce a beautiful heart image in the air. Lastly, the villagers have gathered for a reason, and we assume it's a New Year festival. This could be a major festival the developer teased in the past.
