Stardew Valley MOD updates II: Ghibli Town and Mermaid island

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the late update but it’s been hard to find help with making this mod as I am just a graphic artists and any game related stuff has also a programming component.

After 5 brave souls attempted to make the mod and failed, scampering off once they saw they couldn’t tame the beast know as modding in Stardew Valley, one hero has risen.

So long story short, I have collaborated with  Trent previously on the New fish mod and we wanted to ad new fishing areas for people, because +90 fish wasn’t enough for us and with so many fish the spawning areas weren’t spawning properly anymore. We had to create new homes for our fish.

I had previously worked on many other mods with people, each group had ambitions ideas about desert or forest expansions and of course my Ghibli town as well. But sadly the ever changing landscape of the codding in SDV was just to much for them and many projects died in pre-production.

Thus I decided to take things slow and greed with Trent that we should first do a small island before we try and do the Ghibli mod, or the Oriental Mod (Desert mod).

The island has a middle aged mermaid selling fish related items in her shop. She will be in a relationship with Willy and a friend of Linus. We plan to give her heart events and anything else we will need for all my grand plans for the Ghibli mod. This little island mod will be our guinea pig for the Ghibli Town mod.

Thank you to Eimie and everybody else who agreed to donate their textures to this mod as it has greatly decreased my work load. The full list of modders who have donated textures or from who I took inspiration in making my own version of their aesthetics  see here.

For more updates you can join my Discord server and watch my Youtube videos. You can see there the NPCs and shops we plan to make.

Take care everyone and don’t forget to endorse and give kudos to all the awesome modders in the SDV community! Show them some love so they stay motivated (see if any need financial help as well).  A lot of projects die because people think nobody cares or the crazy people harass them. Both I and Trent have met some weirdos that have thrown insults and bigoted slurs at us and we are not the only ones. It’s just that we are a bit older maybe, and have a better understanding of the toxicity in any community.

In any case SDV is one of the best communities out there and thank you to everyone who strives to keep it awesome and please continue to support the modders as they keep the community going with new content every month.

And of course thank you to Eric Barone for making the game, Chuckle fish for connecting us and we look forward to all the new content from everyone.

Hugz,
Hisame

For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:

It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Halloween is my favorite holiday so for this Niels Feynman holidays special I added some extra easter eggs and references from the genera of cosmic horror and sci-fi as well as other artworks of mine. Hope you enjoy and I wish you the best!

So I like to keep my holiday specials detached temporal from the main story line so that I can showcase funny events and characters that will appear in future comic issues.

In the upper left we have the Mendls, cousins of Alfred Feynman, Niel’s dad. The family tree is available to my Patreon supporters, so if you wish to support us financially you will get access to extra content and behind the scenes materials.  They are costumed as the gods Odin and Kali, the original superheros so to speak and  Alfred is just wearing a Halloween pumpkin sweater. You can also see uncle Aubrey Mendl giving Marie a chocolate muffin which shouldn’t be much of an issue since Marie is a cyborg corgi and is much tougher than a normal dog. Also can you guess as what famous dog she’s dressed as?

On the upper right I drew the O’Haras, their family will appear in the comic story where Niels goes back in time to visits the famous admiral Zheng He. But more on that once we manage to finish the current story line:  Niels visits Isaac Newton.

Up on the stairs we have Niels costumed as the renowned physicist  Richard Feynman, while Ingrid is costumed as a firefighter and on the last step is Darsha costumed as Mary Jackson, one of  N.A.S.A.’s engineers that helped the Americans win the space race.

Watch on Youtube how we made the illustration.

 

Bellow we have Evangeline and Erwin discussing Erwin’s costume choice. Now I had a lot of fun making this relationship dynamic and referencing G.R.R. Martin and Robert W. Chambers ‘ works. “The King in Yellow” is a cosmic horror figure featured in Lovecraft‘s and Martin’s  works as well and since the action takes place in Cambridge U.K. the most scariest thing to adults is, and probably will continue to be, healthcare bills, hence Erwin’s outfit. Needles to say Eve’s parents who are English don’t find Erwin’s joke funny.

Evangeline is of course dressed as the breaker of chains, the mother  and the most bad-ass female super hero since Artemis and Athena.

As for references to my own work you can see a small ad for a sale on Ernest the Blue Bunny merchandise and a Y.A.N.A. online DLC pack. YANA, Long Feast and LDAD are there series of novels set in steam punk, futuristic and medieval worlds that I’m still working on. The drafts are done and I will polish and publish these books after I finish the Niels Feynman series. So expect a large shared, expansive universe with lots of adventures in the decades to come.

Hugz,
