About this mod

Replaces the museum artifact sprites with more detailed and historically accurate versions. Some have been totally redesigned. Complete with edited names and descriptions!

Permissions and credits
We all love Ape and his unique style of pixel art, but next to cometkins' gorgeous gems and minerals, the vanilla game's artifacts left my museum with... a weird vibe. ☉ ‿ ⚆

Anyway, about 20 hours of archaeological research (yes, I'm really that boring LOL), pixel art, and lore improvisations later, here we are! I present to you, historically-inspired, more visually detailed museum artifacts with a few creative embellishments that hopefully maintain lore immersion.

Featuring, but not limited to;
- a prehistoric creature skeleton that actually fits together!
- spooky doll replacements with even spookier descriptions (happy Halloween... month! ⊂(≖o≖⊂ )∘˚˳°)
- 3Dimension-ish textures
- your own choice of dwarven technology style, default is designed to compliment Gwen's Medieval Craftables' style of (1.5 spoiler ahead!)
farm computer

- ...and much more!

Only requires SMAPI and Content Patcher, but I highly recommend cometkins' Better Gems and Minerals (and undare's animated version), andril11's Museum Expansion, Airyn's Random Lost Library Book Covers, and Hesper's Rustic Country Town Interior for the optimal museum and artifact collection experience!

Replaces each sprite individually NOT the whole tilesheet, so should be compatible with just about everything!
However, the patch method used is edit rather than overlay, so it should override any other mods attempting to replace the same textures.

If you want to install a mod which replaces one of the museum artifacts (or just prefer how one of the vanilla versions looks), you can disable each artifact individually in the config. 

For more information, consult the Configuration_Guide.txt file included in the main download!

As always, huge thanks to my lovely datefriend seitanicbean for coaching me through writing and debugging the json, as well as answering hundreds of optometrist-style "this version or this version? darker or lighter?" questions.
My mods would not exist without them, so everyone say 'thank you, Bean!'
