About this mod

Access all mini fridges in a farm house or cabin from its kitchen fridge. Default option also moves all mini fridges out of the map bounds during play to avoid cluttering the house (can be disabled).

Note of Warning
As before, I have not had the time to test this mod intensively.
It should run more stable since I've simplified a lot of things.
I have tested the basic functionality but not under many different conditions. 
If you are using this mod be aware that some bugs might appear.
I removed all the old issues since the code has been reworked from scratch almost.
I will try to fix at least more critical reported bugs that appear if I have the time.

Multiplayer has been tested simply on a local host.
I don't know the net code for Stardew Valley very much but I have tried to adjust for multiplayer in my implementation.

Here we are again with an update for the mod.
Its probably obvious for people who've been following this mod but I'm not much of a reliable modder.
I'll probably disappear again without warning but I will try to check in if any new issues are reported.
Currently I will not be looking into implementing feature suggestions or improvements.

The source code for this mod is on git.
Feel free to use it if anyone is interested in making their own fridge expansion mod.

Managing Mini Fridges
Access mini fridges through the kitchen fridge using inventory tabs. Simply place mini fridges in a farm house or cabin with a kitchen and they will be accessible from the kitchen fridge. The next day you will find your placed mini fridges moved away from your living space. They are placed in the first found free tiles within the house when the day ends so if the mod stops working you should still have your stuff. It should also work in multiplayer.

The mod should be compatible with most other mods that doesn't reinvent the fridges.
Other mods that access or slightly modifies fridges could result in some minor bugs.
