About this mod

Amends recipes to match cost of normal ingredients + 50%. Adds food related special orders, and new mail for completion.

Permissions and credits
Brief overview

This mod does a few things. First, it changes the base price of cooked items to be equal to the cost of normal quality ingredients, plus ~50%. This has a number of effects, not limited to:

  • Making it profitable for normal and silver quality items to be crafted and sold as meals. Once you are regularly producing gold and iridium crops, and have skills such as Tiller, Artisan and Rancher, this feature becomes loss-making.
  • Buying food at the Stardrop Saloon from Gus in most cases is significantly more expensive.
  • Qi seasoning adds 50% value to cooked meals, which will make crafting gold-quality crops profitable.

Secondly it adds eight new special orders, four repeatable and four non-repeatable, which require cooking items to complete. The four repeatable quests offer a monetary reward of just over 150% sell price of the cooking involved, plus one heart friendship with Jodi and a gift in the mail.  The four non-repeatable quests are more difficult, and (in most cases) offer larger monetary rewards, two heart friendship with the giver and a rarer gift in the mail*.

*The winter non-repeatable event grants 200% sell price gold and cool item, but no friendship.

A full list of what the mod changes is available at the bottom, under Spoilers.

Food price calculation

  • Food and drink will sell at cost of ingredients +50% (plus or minus a few percentages for my bad math). Some items have lost value, while others have greatly increased in value.
  • This also affects edible crafted items made in the inventory, such as Field Snack.
  • This does not affect the cost of artisan goods
  • The price for meals that use "Any Fish" are calculated using a 75g normal quality fish
  • The price for meals that use "Egg"  are calculated using a 50g small normal quality egg
  • The base cost of rice has been changed to 50g, to match wheat and sugar.
  • Gus sells food at 200% base value
  • Qi seasoning will increase the total base price by 50%.
