Loved Labels 2.0

Adds a customize-able mouse hover label (tooltip) to make it easier to see if you have petted a pet

  1. Advize


    This mod was a professional collaboration between Jinxiewinxie and myself.

    Requires SMAPI or later.

    It adds a tooltip label near your cursor when you mouse-over a pet or farm animal letting you know if they have been petted or not. You can customize the text that the label uses in the config file.

    Here's a .gif showing the mod in action:



    Download Here from the Nexus. Ensure you are using SMAPI or above.

    Installation Instructions:

    • Download the mod
    • Extract the archive
    • Go to %AppData%\Roaming\StardewValley
    • Add the folder inside the Mods folder

    To use:

    Just start your game using StardewModdingAPI.exe, the config file will be created when you first load up the game.

    You can edit the text the labels use by editing the config file. Replace the words inside the quotes for each one to specify a different label to use. For example:

    You can change this

    "AlreadyPettedLabel": "Is Loved",
    "NeedsToBePettedLabel": "Needs Love"

    To this

    "AlreadyPettedLabel": "Has already been petted",
    "NeedsToBePettedLabel": "Needs to be petted"

    and you'll see the new labels in game.


    The initial idea for this was inspired by Orspeeder's Chest Label System mod. Also, thank you to Legiion/TheCatMan of NPC Gift Taste Helper for helping Jinxie gain a better understanding of using custom assets.

    Fantastic mod one of my top 10 quality of life mods, makes livestock raising much better and something I think should be in the game by default.

    First found on Nexus, going through Chuckle fish now to rate things. This falls under the category of 'could have been part of the base game' mods. Download. Install. Try hard not to forget it's a mod that may need updating as the game is updated, and not part of the vanilla game.

      Installation instructions are in bold text in the mod description both here and on the Nexus. If you had asked for help in the discussion in any of the three locations where this mod is hosted you would have received help, and there are PLENTY of video tutorials on how to install SMAPI mods.
