About this mod

Automatically takes a screenshot of your entire farm when you exit your house for the first time each day.

Permissions and credits

This is an example of what you can do with this mod. You can customize the quality and size (this example is a lower quality due to file size restrictions on the website used to host this image). By taking a daily screenshot, eventually you'll have enough images to create a GIF that shows your farm progress over time!

  • One screenshot is automatically taken of your entire farm every day as soon as you leave your house.
  • Choose what time the screenshot gets taken.
  • Choose how often a screenshot gets taken (daily, weekly, monthly, etc).
  • Screenshots are sent to your StardewValley/Screenshots folder, with each save file getting its own "FarmName-Screenshots" folder. Screenshots between multiple save files will not get mixed up.
  • Easily access the screenshots in-game by scrolling to the bottom of the "Options" tab in the menu and clicking the "Open Destination Folder" button.
  • Super easy to gather screenshots to create a GIF that shows how your farm changes over time! GIF makers can be found online, such as ezgif GIF maker.
  • Keeps the screenshots in the correct order to make creating the GIF easier. This is achieved by naming each screenshot with a "year-season-day.png" numerical format. For example, on Year 1, Winter, Day 3, the screenshot would be named "01-04-03.png". 
  • Keyboard shortcut that takes a screenshot when pressed (set to "None" by default).
  • Can choose to disable automatic screenshots for rainy weather days (takes a screenshot every day regardless of weather by default).
  • Custom configuration options, including ability to add multiple custom rules! See below.
