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.
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.
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.
