Life Cycle

Even though I love playing Stardew Valley, sometimes I feel like I'm the only one progressing in town. This made me decide to make a mod that allows NPCs to date each other and much more.

Installation:
Installing dating version:
  1. SMAPI and Content Patcher must be installed.
  2. Download the file and unzip it.
  3. Delete from the folder the pairings you do not want and install only one pairing per NPC.
  4. Place the main folder [CP] Life Cycle in your Mods folder.

If you're starting a new save, substitute the Marnie-Lewis folder for the Marnie-Lewis new save file.

If you have seen Emily's 8 hearts event and therefore can't see Clint's 6 hearts event, 
substitute the Emily-Clint folder for the Emily-Clint event seen file.

Installing married version:
  1. SMAPI, Content Patcher and Mail Framework Mod must be installed.
  2. Complete all dating events of the couple you're installing.
  3. Delete the dating version of the pairing you're installing.
  4. Download the file and unzip it.
  5. Delete from the folder the pairings you do not want.
  6. Place the folder [CP] Life Cycle - Wedding in your Mods folder.

Installing living together+children version:
  1. SMAPI, Content Patcher, Custom NPC Fixes and TMXL Map Toolkit must be installed.
  2. Complete dating and wedding events of the couple you're installing.
  3. Delete the previous version of the pairing you're installing.
  4. Download the file and unzip it.
  5. There'll be two folders: [CP] Life Cycle - Moved In (Children) and [TMX] Life Cycle - Athanaeri Corner.
  6. Delete from [CP] Life Cycle - Moved In (Children) the pairings you do not want.
  7. Important!!! Enter the [CP] folder, then enter the folder with the pairing you want to install. There'll be a .tbin file, drag it to [TMX] Life Cycle - Athanaeri Corner/[TMX] Athanaeri Corner/assets. This is to make sure there's only one map for each house. 
  8. Place the folder [CP] Life Cycle - Moved In (Children) and [TMX] Life Cycle - Athanaeri Corner in your Mods folder.

If you want them to have children, follow these steps:
  1. Enter the folder of the pairing you want them to have children in [CP] Life Cycle - Moved In (Children).
  2. Open the config.json and change the variable to 'true' or 'false'.

Features:
For each pairing, there are:
  • New heart events.
  • New dialogue lines after every event for the couple.
  • After the 8 heart event is triggered, the couple's schedules change and they will occasionally meet up.
  • Also, after the 8 heart event, new dialogue lines are added to their family, that depends on your heart level with them.
  • Optional wedding event (at the moment only available for Sam and Penny).
  • Optional living together version. If you install this version, the pairing and their families will have dinner together in their house once a month (at the moment only available for Sam and Penny).
  • Optional children (at the moment only available for Sam and Penny).

Future updates:
I really enjoyed making this mod, but I also realized that modding takes a lot of time and right now I'm very busy with school. Nevertheless, I plan to make updates for more couples and even add friendly/family events for other NPCs. If you any suggestions, leave a post to let me know!

New location - Athanaeri Corner:
Athanaeri Corner is a new custom location where some married pairings will live. The access is northeast of the bus stop.

Special thanks:
Thanks to petriatnexus for helping me check the dialogues, to Lucypandyleo for helping me create Athanaeri Corner and being my pixel art helper and to Lemurkat for answering my doubts about modding! :)

This is the first mod that I've ever made and English is not my first language, so if there's any bug or some dialogues are not well written, please let me know. I hope you enjoy even more your experience in Stardew Valley with this mod!
