    This mod is the successor to Gaveliere's original Anthro Characters mod. This mod builds upon Gaveliere's vision, deriving a complete experience thanks to Gaveliere with assisstance from many contributions from the community over the years. This mod overhauls every NPC in the game, creating a wholly re-imagined Stardew Valley experience for those who enjoy anthropomorphic animal characters.

    Gaveliere worked very hard to update the base mod for Stardew Valley patch 1.5 as fast as possible. If you've enjoyed the mod please consider buying Gav a coffee at:

    Thanks to the generous help of Krystedez we now have a functional Content Patcher version of the mod. Thank you to all of those who also offered support~

    Female to male genderswaps are once again functional and fully updated for Stardew Valley patch 1.5.

    This mod does not affect the player-character; ACC co-author Krystedez is currently developing an anthro farmer and children mod. Links will be added here when development on those is completed.

    The patches below are archived; they are unlikely to work as their respective mods and Stardew Valley have updated. They are here for archival purposes.

    ninjakaami has been working on an anthro children mod you can find here.

    Longevity Patch by Rydel:
    (NOTE: Not compatible with the Female->Male Genderswaps yet)

    The Siv's Marriage Mod patch can be found in the files below this post.
    This patch will likely only work with older versions of SMM for the time being.

    Lycanglass created a patch for Stardew Valley Expanded. You can find the link below:
    NOTE: These patches were not created by Gaveliere nor myself and as such we cannot assist with issues you might have with it.

    There are alternate versions of Alex, Emily, Demetrius, Evelyn and Robin available in the Alternate Character Designs file for those who prefer them.
    These are no longer functional in Stardew version 1.5 and on to our knowledge. Expect complications if using these.


    Installation Instructions:
    Extract the contents of the attached file using 7zip or a similar program and follow the instructions packaged within.

    Female to Male Marriage Candidate Genderswaps:
    We now have sprites and dialogue options for the eligible female to male gender-swapped characters!


    Female to Male Genderswap Installation Instructions:

    Just download the ACC Female to Male Genderswaps file, extract it with a .zip file extractor such as 7zip, then follow the instructions packaged within.

    If you encounter any bugs, please report them here or on the Nexus page after ensuring you installed everything correctly and there are no mod conflicts.

            I've added this mod to the Stardew Valley Nexus to increase exposure and hopefully boost the chances of getting some of the small-scale work still needed done. It can be found over here. (I'm mostly making this post to prove that I'm the one who posted the mod over there, as my username is different on the Nexus).

              I love Anthro Characters. Thank you very much.
              I upload sprite I previously edited personally.
              (Please advise me if there are any problems.)
              and previously I have also edited "Cursors.ja-JP.xnb" (I'm Japanese :D) , but it's not quite enough to be released (low quality ( ◞‸◟ ) )

                Do you mean you contributed to the mod? Did you help with Anthro Characters and want to be credited?

                Or are you trying to help out with the mod currently, making or editing sprites? Sorry, I'm having trouble understanding.

                  Really glad to see this is being revived. Which small sprites happen to be missing from the mod? Like, what is thier file name and directory in the games files?

                    I think figuring that out will take time; even I don't know every little possible non-replaced sprite due to the game updating and the fact that multiple people worked on the mod so it's not always straightforward. Every once in awhile you'll run into a standalone scene where a character reverts. Shane has at least one I know where he falls face down for a scene; I need to find time to do a deep dive and dig them up, unless someone else does it first.

                      If you're using my cursors then Shane will not revert when falling over

                        Does that include his talking head sprite? If that's the case there's barely anything missing from the main mod despite 1.1 and 1.2, though I keep being paranoid whenever someone brings up a "problem" from the old mod forum. (I'm once again going off of someone's bug report rather than my own experience in actually finding anything incomplete myself, which I should learn by now is a mistake, heh)

                          Make sure you have this one, it was posted by someone on the original thread (I can't remember who, I'm sorry). It contains the correct frames (it goes in the portrait section)

                            Yup, the October 4th one is the one I've got packed in here. Okay I do have all the Shane sprites then, I'm just paranoid. I'm..not sure if there is still sprite work missing. That's the problem with pulling a bunch of different pieces out from different people; it's hard to know if everything is there without knowing each scene. (I also haven't been at my own computer in several days to just confirm on my own) I'm fairly confident there isn't actually anything missing at this point, I'm just going off of people using the wrong cursors files, ect. left over from the original post or overwriting on their own. It's amazing how many problems that old mod has caused...

                            I'm going to edit the main thread to ask people if they encounter missing stuff to report it rather than confirming anything is missing. Thanks again Roskii, my bad.

                              Hey, I was browsing through the games files after installing the mod to start tracking down some missing sprites, and I noticed that on Sandy's sprite, her wings are missing on the animation cycle for walking to the left. Here's a fixed version.

                                Does Sandy ever walk to the left? xD (Really doesn't remember)

                                  I think she does? I may be thinking of extra scenes and walking cycles added in by siv's marriage mod though. Even if we never see it, my sprite ocd wouldn't let me ignore her missing wings ^^"

                                    Adding more compatability and flexibility is never a bad thing!

                                      He's added a fix for the cowPhotosWinter.xnb

                                      In its current state, it shows haley and the cows in summer instead of winter.

I've updated the main file and credited @ninjakaami and @HYODO for their contributions~ (and to Roskii for pointing out what I hadn't realized myself... >_>;; ) I'm about to do the same over at the Nexus.

                                          Thanks again, guys~
