Welcome to Diverse Stardew Valley!


Diverse Stardew Valley edits the villagers of Pelican Town to add ethnic, cultural, gender identity and body type diversity. The mod includes a full set of seasonal outfits for every character, and the ability to choose between DSV and vanilla variants — or disable parts of the mod entirely to use other NPC mods instead.

The Diverse Stardew Valley project was started by notsnufffie, and is now being continued by the community. The art and coding of this mod was made by the DSV Team with the help of many generous contributors. ***Here is a complete spreadsheet of DSV's credits!***


A complete visual readme and configuration guide can be found in the download!

Installation
This mod requires Content Patcher! Simply unpack and place the "[CP] Seasonal Villager Outfits for Diverse Stardew Valley" folder into your Mods folder. 

You can choose which version of each character you would like to use in the config, as well as disable any characters that you may want to use another mod for.

For more detailed installation instructions, check out the readme included in the download.

If you are updating DSV, delete any previous files from your Mods folder before moving the new files.

NOTE: We do not recommend using Vortex to install Diverse Stardew Valley or other SDV mods. Vortex sometimes fails to correctly remove files when updating or removing mods, which can cause problems. Thanks to SMAPI and Content Patcher, SDV mods are simple to install or uninstall manually.


Config Options
To simplify the process of configuring this mod, we recommend that you use the Generic Mod Config Menu, which will also allow you to configure all your other content packs in-game. Alternatively, you can open the pre-made example-config.json file from the mod folder with a text editor on your computer. If this is your first time using the mod, rename the file to config.json for its settings to be recognized by the mod. A full list of the options and the choices for each one is included in the PDF readme and is available to view on the DSV wiki.

 Some options in the config.json only apply to certain variants of characters or depend on the values of other options. Do not delete options from the config file even if they seem irrelevant to your game! If for some reason you delete, rename or corrupt the config.json file, it will be recreated automatically the next time the game launches, with default options selected.

If you would rather not select individual character options or would like to jump straight in with modded characters variants, DSV includes two “premade_config_1.json" and “premade_config_2.json” sample files with a random selection of non-vanilla character options - simply rename one to config.json and play.

The readme is available to download separately from the Miscellaneous Downloads section, available in three different fonts to hopefully assist users with dyslexia. We're also interested in translating our readme to different languages - if you're a translator and would like to help out, we'd love to hear from you!

Compatibility
To use different portrait/character sprite mods with DSV, just set the affected characters’ variants to “off” in this mod. Many alternate character designs from other modders (including all of the variants from previous versions of the mod) can be found in the optional Add-On character packs, which will be uploaded once they've been updated for 1.5 compatibility.

Diverse Stardew Valley is not compatible with Seasonal Villager Outfits, as both mods have the same function. However, Diverse Stardew Valley also includes seasonal outfits for all of the vanilla characters, so DSV can be used as a replacement for SVO if you prefer the vanilla character designs.

DSV is compatible with Surfing Festival by default and characters will wear swimwear at the festival. The latest version of DSV (available on ModDrop) is compatible with Shane's New Job by default and Shane's new animations will automatically detect the correct variant and outfit. Compatibility patches for other mods are coming soon.

We will not offer compatibility support for Stardew Valley Expanded
, so if you are using SVE, you must set Gunther, Marlon, and Morris to "off" and Linus to "off" or "vanilla" in DSV's configuration options. Please see the DSV Compatibility readme (coming soon) for more information.
