Permissions and credits

Configurable Special Orders Unlock
by Vertigon

This mod allows the player to decide when the Special Orders board should become available.

Choose the year, season and day, either through GMCM if installed, or manually via config file.

This mod has not been heavily tested, especially in regards to multiplayer, so if you run into any issues please report them!

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

Alternatively, if you are using a mod manager, download using your mod manager of choice (I recommend Mod Organizer 2 with the Simple Games Plugin).

If you are using Generic Mod Config Menu, you can simply launch the game and edit the parameters from within GMCM. There is no need to reload the game for changes to take effect.

If you are not using Generic Mod Config Menu, you will need to launch the game to generate the config.json file, which you can then edit. You will need to reload the game for changes to take effect. The parameters are as follows:

  • unlockYear: The year in which the board should be unlocked. Vanilla value is Year 1.
  • unlockSeason: The season in which the board should be unlocked. Vanilla value is "Fall". Acceptable values are "Spring", "Summer", "Fall", and "Winter" - not case sensitive.
  • unlockDay: The day of the season on which the board should be unlocked. Vanilla value is 2. Acceptable values are 1-28.

  • Works with Stardew Valley 1.5 on Windows. Linux/Mac have not been tested, but should work.
  • Works in single player and multiplayer. Again, multiplayer has not been extensively tested.
  • Not guaranteed to work with any mods which alter the Special Orders board or menu.
  • Please report any issues you encounter.
