Do you ever have a mod that doesn't get updated? Don't worry, just wait two years and you'll eventually get one! All jokes aside, I thought that account and the mod itself were gone forever. So imagine my surprise when I randomly found it two years later! It's mind-boggling. Anyway, I suppose I should get into the actual description.

A More Interesting (Updated) Sam

========================================================================================
While I could copy and paste my old description, I won't. Sam fills a very particular role for me. Not only do we share a nickname, but I find his carefree, kinda goofy attitude very sweet. I want to hear more from him! But as he is not one of the more popular bachelors (as far as I know), there aren't a lot of additions to his dialogue through modding. Well, I decided to add to the little pile!


New Unmarried Dialogue!
I wrote dialogue for every heart level during every season! And that is quite a bit since there wasn't much to begin with! So much that I can't bother counting it! He will now talk about the birthdays of his friends and family and comment on certain holidays. I always found it strange that the people of Stardew Valley don't really talk about those close to them, despite being apart of a "tight-knit" community. I tried to remedy this a little bit. He will also talk about his life in Zuzu City and offer some light-hearted fun along the way!


New Married Dialogue!
Now he is a bit more talkative when he is on your farm! Not only will he say his regular stuff, but I made it to where he will switch between the new and original dialogue. Additionally, I added lines where there weren't any originally and edited the strings that go along with your spouse to give them a little bit of Sam flavoring. Don't worry though! The strings are only changed if you marry Sam, so if you don't, they will simply remain the same.


Future Plans
That's right! I'll actually update this! Crazy, I know. I am already partially through writing the marriage dialogue and some of the string files that relate to that and I looking into adding new events to him as well. If you have any ideas or requests, don't be afraid to ask!

Recommended/Compatible Mods

MissCoriel's NPC Unique Courtship Response
by MissCoriel
It makes each character's reaction unique! I thought this mod did a well enough job on its own, so I didn't change anything that it does.

Unique Jealousy Responses
by minervamaga and shwetan 
Pretty much the same thing could be said here. I didn't change anything that it does, so it is fully compatible!

Platonic Relationships
by CherryChain
I actually edited Sam's ten heart dialogue when you have this mod and you are just friends, so it should be fully compatible! I recommend it because I like being friends with everyone!
Additional Info

It should be mentioned that I added a dependency to Canon-Friendly Dialogue Expansion for All Friend-able Characters, which means that this mod will be loaded after it, so you'll see my dialogue edits before that dialogue expansion. I play with both, and I love it, but if the dependency was not there, you would never see my edits! If you do want Canon-Friendly Dialogue Expansion to take priority over my mod, then just go into the manifest.json and delete the dependency lines that include it. If you have any trouble with the process, comment and I will try to help as best as I can!
