About this mod

There's a new face in Pelican Town! Introducing: Paul the Optometrist!

Permissions and credits
UPDATE: with new portraits by Zosa!

Move over, Harvey! Paul is a hardworking Optometrist with a passion for nature and a heart of gold. You might find him reading his field journal, birdwatching, or anxiously awaiting the next time he can go fishing. He is marriageable with five different heart events, a unique spouse room, marriage dialogue, a detailed schedule, quests, and mail!

What began as an attempt to mod my real-life hubby into the game ended up being a pretty cool addition to the valley - so I thought I'd share him in case anyone else was interested!

To install:
1) Make sure you have "SMAPI,"  "Content Patcher," and "TMXLoader" installed
2) Place ALL THREE of the following into your Mods folder:
- "[CP] Paul"
- "[TMX] Paul at Festivals" 
- "[TMX] Paul Spouse Room"
3) Enjoy!

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs, mistakes, or inconsistencies! Also, if you know how to fix any of the current ones, totally tell me how! Much appreciated!

Known Bugs:
1) Paul disappears for the flower dance. He's definitely there, just wearing his invisibility cloak, I guess.
2) Paul's marriage cutscene is just a black screen with Lewis's dialogue over it.
3) Some punctuation (mostly apostrophes for some reason) disappear in his dialogue.

Special thanks to Zosa for the wonderful portraits, the Stardew Valley MOD Makers facebook group, and MissCoriel for helping me out when I got lost in the modding process!

I used the following awesome mod as a base for Paul's look!
