About this mod

Take a secret passage into the abandoned Joja Mart, where nature has begun reclaiming the space and you can use it howe

Permissions and credits
Tired of those ugly Joja ruins contributing nothing to Pelican Town? Need some more farm space for crops or lumber trees?  Wish that mysterious box behind Joja Mart actually did something?  Well now you can have all three!

With the Community Center restored and the citizens of Stardew Valley boycotting Joja Mart, Morris and his cronies left town forever, but they left behind a crumbling building.  Now you can enter that building through a secret passage in the fenced off area behind it, and use it for your own ends.  Nature has begun reclaiming the space and some of the aisles and flooring have been broken down, leaving tillable land for you to grow crops and trees on.  One of the empty display bins has filled with water and can be used as a water source for your watering can.  Grass can be planted and harvested for hay.  As a parting gift, Morris even left one of the registers on; it mostly sells garbage now, but even that can have a purpose with your recycling machines.  And keep checking the register; it sells different things on different days, and who knows, some of those items might come in handy.

The area is indoors, so you can grow any crops regardless of season.  There is one big tillable area that is optimized to fit 4 Iridium Sprinklers, as well as several individual tillable tiles to add to the aesthetic and plant trees in.  Saplings cannot be planted in the Joja Mart, but Pine, Oak, and Maple can.  There are some forest trees and grass already growing, but if you cut them you will need to replant them to get more; grass can be planted, but will not regrow or spread.  Most of the individual tillable tiles outside of the main crop area are optimized for tree growth.

Installation:  Place both folders, [TMX] Abandoned Joja Mart and [CP] Abandoned Joja Mart, in your Mods folder.  That’s it.  Requires Smapi, TMX Loader, and Content Patcher.

Uninstallation: Remove both folders from your Mods folder.  Remember to remove any objects you have stored in the abandoned Joja Mart, as they will be deleted once the mods are removed.

Known Issues: Certain of the items available at the register have limited inventory on the days they are available, for balancing purposes.  However, closing and re-opening the sale screen will replenish the stock, so an unlimited supply can be purchased.  Currently, this is an issue with how the base game reads the instructions, and there is no workaround to truly implement the inventory limit.  I guess you’re on the honor system, or you can just buy as much as you want, I won’t judge.

Special thanks to RyuuProductions_ryu's JuniMart, one of the primary inspirations for the aesthetics on this mod.  This mod will only affect the inside of the Joja Mart, so it works just fine with JuniMart, as you can see in the screenshot, and I highly recommend it.

2.0 New Features

-There are now a couple events and quests that will change the inside of the abandoned Joja Mart to be more cleaned up and pretty, giving you more room to work with.
-Once the expanded version is unlocked, you will be able to pick from three alternate maps; the default expanded map, a forest map for foraging, and a greenhouse map primarily for cultivating crops and trees.
-The maps can be swapped through a config file, the options are "Default", "Forage", and "Greenhouse".

The Default Mart
-Essentially the same as the first version but with more space available.
-The shop remains, focusing on trash items and resource items.

The Forest
-Lots of trees for wood resources; unlike the default map, these will grow back on their own when chopped down.
-A small pond with a rotating selection of fish.
-An alternate shop that sells out of season foraging items.

The Greenhouse
-Tons more space for crops; a 20x10 tile block and 10 individual spaces for trees.
-A Rabbit Statue that can warp you back to the Rabbit Statue on your farm.  Note: it will warp you when you walk in front of it, it is not based on pressing an action button.  It only goes one way, so only step on it if you are ready to go home for a while.
-An alternate shop that focuses on gardening tools and resources.


-The alternate maps are fully separate maps, technically what's changing is the warp into them.  This means that any items or crops you have in one map will not carry over to another map when you change it, but they will remain in the original whenever you swap back to it.
-The expanded default map is not a separate map, so any items or crops in it when you complete the quests to expand the original map will remain upon expansion.
-The expansion happens after a cutscene when you enter the building with the last requested item, but you will need to leave the building and return into it for the expansion to go into effect.
-Saplings still cannot normally be planted in any of the maps, including the Greenhouse, but will work if you have mods that allow them to be planted outside of the farm.  CatCattyCat's Better Fruit Trees works wonders for this, though for some odd reason they will still only produce during their season even when the game considers the building indoors.

2.1 Changelist

For version 2.0, I accidentally replaced a line in the code; with that line missing, the warp into the Abandoned Joja Mart was active early.  With this code added back in, the warp into the building will not activate until the player has complete the Community Center and seen the re-opening event.

2.2 Changelist

A line in the manifest incorrectly required JSON Assets.  The line has been removed and the mod can be used without JSON Assets.
