About this mod

Adds over 175+ lines of dialogue for the lovable barkeep of the Stardrop Saloon! Hear his adventures as a cook around the world, get to know him, and he'll reveal secrets, including town gossip!

Permissions and credits
Gus is one of the most requested characters I've ever gotten for a narrative overhaul, and he was always on my list!

This mod takes Gus and fills him with much needed personality! As you get to know him, he'll reveal his love of cooking, his adventures around the world, tales of forbidden love, and more! Like town gossip? He'll drop some from time to time!

 This mod adds in over 175+ lines of unique dialogue! That's new lines for every weekday, of every season , and every heart level!

I've applied my narrative design philosophy to make becoming friends with Gus a worthwhile experience. He is not romance-able, however!

1.3 And Beyond
With 1.3, the way .xnb files are found has been changed! In order to use my mods, you must
use the versatile and friendly Content Patcher.

How to install Content Patcher and the Mods:
  1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
  2. Download Content Patcher
  3. Unzip the contents of Content Patcher into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  4. Install any content packs (Narrative Overhauls) you want by unzipping them into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  5. Run the game using SMAPI.

A bit more complicated versus what it was before, but at least it will be possible!

Perfect 10 Edition Extra File:
❤For people who got Gus Heart Level to 10!❤

A best of mix of all the dialogue from this mod for every day of every season. This is for people who have had Gus at heart level 10 for awhile, or got tired of what he says at level 10 with the N.O.

With this, you'll see dialogue you may have missed, and he'll have something different to say the whole year long!

The install instructions are the same as above, however, the perfect 10 edition overwrites the previous mod! Which is okay if he's at Heart Level 10.

I'm looking for FEEDBACK!
