About this mod

Displays the current location as a popup when changing to a new location/map.

Permissions and credits

I got inspired by a similar mod by Omegasis which is also called "CurrentLocation". But i wasn't satisfied how it worked and how it displayed the names. So I made my own version with a little more features:
  • displays the name of a location as a popup in the bottom left corner or as on-screen message (new in version 1.4) for a few seconds after changing to a new location/map 
  • displays your real name of your farm instead of "Farm", e.g. "My Farm"
  • your farm name is displayed everywhere on your farm, e.g. when you're in a shed it displays "My Farm: Shed"
  • displays names of private rooms, e.g. Sebastian's room: "Carpenter's Shop: Sebastian's Room" because it's located in the Carpenter's Shop
  • displays level of current mine and skull cave when changing to a new level, e.g. "Mines: Level 23"
  • mostly it displays the same text as it is shown on the map
  • also works for special transportations like minecarts, the bus to Calico Desert and back or the Return Scepter from Krobus
  • also works for festivals (new in version 1.1)

Currently it's localized in german and english language, but defaults to english if you use another language.


  1. Install the latest stable version of SMAPI or from here on Nexus - no beta version.
  2. Optional but highly recommended: Download and install StardewConfigMenu by Juice805
  3. Download this mod and unzip it into "Stardew Valley/Mods".
  4. Run the game using SMAPI.

You can install it at any time during your current playthrough, you don't have to start a new game.


Delete the folder "CurrentLocation" in "Stardew Valley/Mods".
You can uninstall it at any time during gameplay, it will not touch or harm your savegame.


Developed on the following setup:
Windows 7 SP1 x64
Stardew Valley: 1.2
SMAPI: 2.5.5

This mod is currently not compatible with Stardew Valley 1.3beta. I will update it when Stardew Valley 1.3 is not in beta status anymore.

I can't test it on Mac or Linux.


Since version 1.3 of this mod you can easily configure the settings by using the Mod Options tab in the game when pressing Esc.

But you can still configure it manually:
After installing this mod start the game once and a config file config.json will be generated, where you can edit some settings, but it's not recommended.

You can also configure it by using the SMAPI console command "current_location" or "cl" (since version 1.3 of this mod).

Social Media

"Current Location" got promoted on Twitter - thank you :-)

Known issues

  • When using my mod in version 1.3+ with StardewConfigMenu together with UI Info Suite the two option tabs will overlap each other, but will still be working. It's just an aesthetical issue.
  • I've created a bug report for StardewConfigMenu.
    -> fixed in version 1.4.2; you also have to update StardewConfigMenu to version 1.0.4
  • version 1.4: when using the smoothed font for the on-screen message, numbers are smaller than letters -> can't be fixed
  • version 1.4: when using the pixelated font for the on-screen message, the message isn't always centered -> depends on screen resolution and UI scale -> try higher resolution
