    AN UPDATED 2019 VERSION



    A BIGGER, better Hilltop

    Hi! I really love the Hilltop map, but as everybody who has ever played on it, I ran out of space pretty quickly. I tried looking for mods which make it larger, but all of them were a bit too extreme for me. So I made my own one! :D

    My mod ads a medium sized space on the right side of the farm, it also does the following:
    -Adds a staircase from Grandpas grave to mining area
    -Moves the pond from the left bottom corner to the right bottom corner
    -Changes all the bridges to stone ones
    -A few visual improvements

    Mods that expand the farm also make the way to the bus stop much longer, and I didn't really like that, so I added a forest on the right top corner which makes the way much shorter:

    Screenshot of the whole map:

    It should be compatible with saved games, because it doesn't remove anything, doesn't move or replace any bushes and doesn't block any free space that was there before :)

    YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT HERE
    Just put the file into Game directory/Content/Maps/

    If you don't want to replace any files, I highly recommend Entoarox's XNB Loader...

    I'm open to ideas, if you want something added or have an idea for improvement, just tell me!

    • Woah! It looks nice! I have a personal request, could you make a version of the Riverland Farm? Because I haven't much space to plant my seeds and also I was thinking about a lake inside one of the Riverland Farm's island, you know, like a new circular island with a lake inside it to make a beautiful relax zone with trees, sit benches and etc. ¿Could you?

          Ill definitely look into making the other farms large if I have time for it in the future :D To be honest though, I have never played on a Riverland Farm before, but I could definitely look into it... someday :D

            Oh my gosh this is perfect for my current hilltop playthrough! I was actually finding that I was struggling to find enough space for a barn, and the space you added it amazing for it! ♥♥♥♥

                My only~ issue, or question is, is there a possibility that you can change those ugly wooden bridges to something else? I've never gotten into map editing myself, as I'd be completely lost on where to even start as much as I've love to try, so I'm not sure if it's possible, but.. Worth asking. x)

                  Thats exactly what Im planning to do! :D The problem is the bridge textures are from a different tilesheet, and I have yet to learn how to properly add it to the Farm map :p

                      Could you make an all grass version? :O

                      • That gave me a awesome idea about what to do in that case.

                            I hope this is okay to share, If not let me know and I'll take it down right away. I had already made this map into grass (mostly) for myself last night , and I also removed the river (oops... people probably wanted that) figured I'd share in case anyone wants it. I also added some forest style tree cover on the lower half of the farm.

                                  Just saying, but where you exit the map on the right hand side near the shipping bin, when you come back in that entrance, it sort of glitches you out and you automatically exit again. Found that out on my game last night and had to swap the map back out :(

                                        In the attached image, when you exit out of there and try to come back in, it glitches you. You can't move, but when you press the key to move, it exits you out of the map again. It's an endless loop. You have to enter through the north side to get back to your farm.

                                        Edit: image doesn't work. Thanks imgur...
