About this mod

The fireplace in your house does nothing more than to light up and produce some smoke. With this mod it needs a few pieces of wood every day in winter and without the warmth of the fire you will get cold and lose health and stamina.

Permissions and credits
When I first played Stardew Valley I realized that the fireplace is only aesthetic furniture. But during the winter I still had the need to light it up every day so me and my cat were not freezing. With this mod this idea is implemented into the game.

What it does:
  • You need a few pieces of wood (default 5) to light you fireplace.
  • It will burn the whole day and night until the next morning.
  • If it is winter and the fire was not burning during the night, your character loses some health and stamina (default 50%). (And you should feel bad about your poor pet).

  1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
  2. Download this mod and unzip it into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  3. Run the game using SMAPI.

  • Remove the folder of this mod.


You can change some values in the config.json file:
  • wood_pieces: amount of wood consumed to light the fire.
  • penalty: true means that your health and stamina is reduced in the morning if the fire wasn't lit.
  • reduce_health: value x between 0 and 1. You will lose  x*100% of your health.
  • reduce_stamina: value x between 0 and 1. You will lose  x*100% of your stamina.
  • showMessageOnStartOfDay: set to false to remove the message popping up in the morning.

  • Tested with Stardew Valley 1.3.36 on Linux and Windows.
  • Tested in Multiplayer (but due to the regeneration in bed the health/stamina penalty is useless).
  • Not compatible with some mods that also change the health or stamina values after waking up. But it shouldn't break anything.
  • German translation available.
