WHAT THIS DOES

With this mod, your cat will sometimes leave you a random gift on your doorstep. Dogs will dig up gifts at a random location. Gifts can be anything from a wide range of items of varying quality (ie. trash, forage items, seeds, fish or even gems). The more valuable the gift, the rarer it will appear.

NEWS
  • Cross compatibility with my Free Dusty mod! If Dusty is on your farm because you married Alex, there is a small chance he will dig up a gift for you instead of your cat/dog.
  • Players will now receive HUD messages when they receive a gift

CONFIGURATION

If you do not want to know about drop chances etc and rather just enjoy your gifts, stop reading here.

I have not played with the drop chances I put in extensively yet, so I don't fully know if they are feasible. For that reason you can configure pretty much all chances. Here they are in detail and what they mean (open the config.json and change the values):

THRESHOLD_1 = 300
THRESHOLD_2 = 1000
THRESHOLD_3 = 1000

I've put in three friendship thresholds, each with different drop chances. Friendship ranges from 0 - 1000. Default values mean the first drop chances is used for a friendship of 0 - 300, the second from 300 - 1000 and the third for max level.

GIFT_CHANCE_1 = 20
GIFT_CHANCE_2 = 30
GIFT_CHANCE_3 = 40
FARMHAND_CHANCE = 30

Chances in percent for each day to have received a gift. In conjunction with the thresholds this means: 20% chance of receiving a gift from 0 - 300 friendship points, 30% chance from 300 - 1000 and 40% for max friendship level. 
FARMHAND_CHANCE is the chance for the player in case he joins a multiplayer game.

LOW_CHANCE = 40
MID_CHANCE = 40
HI_CHANCE = 20

Chances in percent for the different item qualities. They must add up to 100%, so keep that in mind if you change them.

MAX_WEEKLY_GIFTS = 3

Upper limit for weekly gifts. Statistics are a bitch and even with low gift chances it may happend that the cat would bring you seven gifts in a row. This limit will prevent that.
