About this mod

A farm map which includes a river and an area for ranching, as well as plenty of farmland and an additional cave you can plant in. With optional Content Patcher compatibility.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
I wanted a map with lots of green grass that still had a lot of farmable area, since in the base maps you only seem to get one or the other!
It's been play tested on the Stardew Valley 1.3 beta and should be fully compatible.
There's an option to use this with Content Patcher

Features:
This is a split level map with a large grassy area on a cliff, perfect for ranching or trees, an expanse of farmland for crops, and a river valley and a small pond behind the farm house which are both fishable and water sources for your watering can.
The grassy area should spawn long grass, and is also hoeable if you wanted to plant there for any reason.

I also added an extra cave with hoeable dirt squares that are the size of iridium sprinklers, some area for storage, and a little pond you can fill your watering can from.
It could be a perfect area for crops and kegs :D

Crops you plant in the cave will stay during any season changes, just like in the greenhouse.
I tested the map throughout the first season change to make sure everything works ok.

I couldn't figure out the coding for an additional cave so I just altered the existing farm cave to add the extra area. There's a blank area between them and they're far apart from each other so at normal zoom, you can't see the "other cave" whilst you're in either one.
This means that although you have to replace the farm cave file with my file, it shouldn't interfere with your playing on other maps still :)

Installation:
At the moment, my map replaces the riverland farm map, and the farm cave map.
To install, all you need to do is replace the original files with my files in your Stardew Valley maps folder.

If you use Steam on Windows, this should be the file path:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\Content\Maps

Just change the original filenames Farm_Fishing.xnb and FarmCave.xnb to something like Farm_Fishing_Backup.xnb and FarmCave_Backup.xnb in order to keep them safe, then copy my two files into the folder.
Then run the game as normal and it should work fine. :)

Extra Notes:
By default this replaces the riverland farm map, but you can change it to replace any map by changing the filename from "Farm_Fishing.xnb" to:
"Farm.xnb" (To replace the basic map)
"Farm_Foraging.xnb" (To replace the forest farm)
"Farm_Mining.xnb" (To replace the hilltop farm)
"Farm_Combat.xnb" (To replace the wilderness farm. Please note: The monsters at night are coded in so they will still spawn even with a replacement map!)

Installation (with content patcher):
The map still replaces the riverland farm map, and the farm cave map.
This is compatible with the multiplayer update so make sure you have the appropriate versions of SMAPI and Content Patcher.
To install, all you need to do is unzip the folder into your Stardew Valley mods folder.
If you use Steam on Windows, this should be the file path:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\Mods
Then run the game as normal. :)

Extra Notes:
If your want to replace a map other than the fishing map when using Content Patcher, it's pretty simple.
All you do is go into the Green Pastures mod folder, and open up content.json in a text editor.
Then, where it says:
"Target": "Maps/Farm_Fishing",
Just change Farm_Fishing to whatever farm type you want to replace, using the same names as above (But not writing the file extension).


This is my first map so I hope you like it, and if you notice any errors please let me know. :)
