About this mod

What do you get when you cross Lucille Bluth with a seemingly ageless ballerina who grew up among the Junimos and has a beef with the Wizard? A rude mess called Juna, that's what.

Permissions and credits
Juna is an adult (?), aromantic (so no, not datable), devious, ballet-loving woman with a strange past and a penchant for dramatics. She absolutely abhors walks on the beach, loves going outside in the rain without an umbrella, considers Robin the light of her life, rarely wears shoes, doesn't really get fishing or sincerity or picnics, and takes an inordinate amount of pleasure in tormenting the Wizard.

Includes heart events, lots of dialogue, seasonal clothing, a rather complicated schedule and a quest/special order or two. Juna will only participate in one festival per month; if you want a hint as to which she'll visit that particular month, talk to her on the 4th. ;)

All portraits and sprites made by the lovely (and patient) Hime Tarts. I endorse her for everything art related.

If you come across anything weird and/or buggy that is not mentioned under "Known issues" and/or "FAQ" below, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. (I feel like) I've tested Juna to the moon and back, but I'm only one person. Eventually you just gotta let it go and brace for the inevitable incompatibilities and missed typos.

💙 If you enjoy Juna's dancing and drama, she'd really like it if you endorsed this mod! 💚

1. Install the latest versions of SMAPI, Content Patcher and Custom NPC Fixes.
2. Install Custom Fixed Dialogue and Custom NPC Exclusions (optional but recommended - see Requirements)
3. Unzip the mod folder into Stardew Valley/Mods.
4. Run the game using SMAPI.
5. See "FAQ" below for more information on when Juna appears in the game.

See Articles.

1. Where is Juna?

Juna's introduction event will trigger once you've played at least 5 days in-game. To trigger her intro event, visit Cidersap Forest between 23.00 and midnight. Juna will show up at your door the following day.

Juna's home follows the normal rules for NPC's - i.e. you need to reach 2 hearts with her before you can enter her "house" (coughcavecough). Note: "opening hours" are 10 to 23, and you'll be transported there via magical warp (there won't be any visual change, all you have to do is walk up to the sign.)

2. Is Juna compatible with SVE?

She should be! However, do note the following:

- In Juna's config file, make sure you set "WizardSchedule" and "WizardStrings" to false before loading your SVE save.
- If you're adding Juna to an existing save file with SVE, you should use either Reset Terrain Features or the debug commands
debug removetf and debug removelargetf in the forest, or the entrance to Juna's home is gonna look a real mess.

- Juna expands quite a bit on the
Do with that what thy will.

3. Is Juna compatible with multiplayer?

I have absolutely no idea! I tend to run screaming in the opposite direction whenever I see the words "co-op" in a game description, so I really can't tell you what goes into making something compatible/incompatible with that. If someone discovers she's not and wants me to fix it, feel free to come shout at me.

4. Is Juna compatible with mobile SDV?

I don't think so? She uses 1.5 content, which I think is a dealbreaker.

5. Is Juna compatible with X?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The only thing I do know is this: if you play with a female version of the Wizard, Juna's story won't make much sense. I also don't know what happens if you marry him, since that would change his schedule. If you notice her clashing with something else, let me know!

6. Who is this Olive Juna keeps mentioning?!


7. Any trigger warnings?

If you're fine playing vanilla SDV, you shouldn't have any problems with Juna. But just in case:

8. Sometimes Juna talks as if she's talking to Robin/the Wizard/Emily etc. even though that person isn't there, so, like, what's up with that?!

Ah, elhrvy, always nice to hear from you. I know your critical voice well.
I've done my very best to immerse Juna in Pelican Town by patching vanilla dialogue and making conditional edits, but those kinds of edits will always be rather frail, I'm afraid. I mean, even in an un-modded game Demetrius has to dance alone like a chump whenever Robin is off building coops or whatever. Let us all just raise a glass to suspension of disbelief! *Cheers!*

9. Who is Lucille Bluth? (And related: how old are you?! I don't understand any of your references!)

Lucille Bluth / 😭

- Because I'm the dum-dum who decided to give my first custom NPC a super complicated schedule, and because SDV doesn't really like it when you change an NPC's spawn point, there's a bug where Juna might get stuck in bed following her 8 heart event. If this happens, just exit to title or desktop and re-start the game to get her going again.

Juna's config: unless you play with SVE or another mod that loads a schedule and/or schedule strings for the Wizard (see note on SVE above), you shouldn't have to do anything with this.

If you're interested in translating Juna into another language, I'd be super stoked to hear from you! My day job is translating from English to Swedish and vice versa, which I've been doing for close to 10 years now. One thing I've learnt from this is that it is always, always better to have a direct line of communication with the original author (because it's goddamn hard to know why writers make the choices they do sometimes). So, for everyone's peace of mind, but especially mine: please get in touch before you start digging into Juna's code? I'm reachable both here and on Discord (same user name).
