About this mod

Removes roe from all shellfish pond loot tables, and replaces it with a chance to produce pearls. Optionally includes Clams, if you use Anything Ponds.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
In real life, oysters and other shellfish are capable of producing pearls. It's a long process though, but they are of course very valuable and worth it. Even if not for a profit, they're great as gifts! This is a configurable mod that allows for that same functionality in Stardew.


Config:
(The config.json will be generated in the mod's folder upon first launch of the game with it installed)

{
"Clams": "False",
"Cockles": "False",
"Mussels": "True",
"Oysters": "True",
"MorePearls": "False",
"FewerPearls": "False"
}

"Clams": True or False; Sets whether or not Clams are included in the mod's changes. Defaults to False. ( Clams are only supported if you're using Anything Ponds. )
"Cockles": True or False; Sets whether or not Cockles are included in the mod's changes. Defaults to False.
"Mussels": True or False; Sets whether or not Mussels are included in the mod's changes. Defaults to True.
"Oysters": True or False; Sets whether or not Oysters are included in the mod's changes. Defaults to True.
"MorePearls": True or False; Adjusts the drop chances to be weighted more toward Pearls. Defaults to False.
"FewerPearls": True or False; Adjusts the drop chances to make Pearls rarer. Defaults to False

Use:

Each shellfish pond will only start producing Pearls once it reaches a population of at least 8. They have multiple population gates, so this will take a few days. In the interest of balance, at a population of 8 the chance of them producing any Pearls is still fairly low (5%-8%). Once they reach maximum capacity with a population of 10, these values increase (10%-25%). The configuration value "MorePearls" will significantly boost these odds (5%-10% at 8, 10%-50% at 10) when set to True. With "FewerPearls", you will be facing slim chances (1%-2% at 8, 2.5%-4% at 10).

Oysters will always be more likely to produce Pearls than the others, and they have a chance to produce up to 3 at a time at a population of 10.
