This mod lets you play Conway's Game of Life on your farm. Watered dirt grows and dies in complex patterns. Optionally allow it to hoe new tiles and even remove debris as it grows.  Not very useful, but a bit of silly fun when you get tired of working.  Retaining Soil can be especially fun, since you will wake up to a random starting pattern each day.  Best not to play Game of Life after spending time watering all your crops, though!

Install
  1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
  2. Download this mod and unzip it into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  3. Run the game using SMAPI.

How to use
Go to your farm, have some tilled dirt (the kind you can plant seeds in), water some of it, and play the Game of Life!  Dry dirt with three adjacent watered spaces will become watered.  Watered dirt with two or three adjacent watered spaces will stay watered.  All other watered spaces will dry out.  This happens once per second by default; the speed can be adjusted in game.  Pause the Game of Life any time (Hold L and press P).

Key Bindings
Hold L (configurable) and press one of the following.  Pressing L alone will show a reminder.
  • P : Play/Pause Game of Life
  • + : Increase speed (maximum 20 ticks per second)
  • - : Decrease speed (minimum 1 tick every 10 seconds)
  • . : Step forward one tick

Configuration
After using the mod for the first time, config.json will appear in the mod folder.  Edit this file to control the mod's options. You can change the modifier key from L to something else, change the default speed, allow Game of Life to till new dirt, and more. Here's a sample config.json with comments explaining the options.
