Butcher Mod 1.0.1Download link on nexus: https://www.nexusmods.com/stardewvalley/mods/1538/? Current Version: 1.0.1 Fix to reported incompatibility issues with other mods. New sprite for the Meat Cleaver. Installation: Install the latest version of SMAPI. Unzip the Butcher Mod into Stardew Valley/Mods. Unzip the MailFrameworkMod into Stardew Valley/Mods. Unzip the CustomElementHandler into Stardew Valley/Mods. Run the game using SMAPI. Obs. Always backup your save file before tying this kind of mod. Compatibility: This mod may conflict with other mods using the original meat sprites left in the game code. (objectInformation ids 639 to 644). It may also conflict with mods changing the mailbox, because of it's dependency on the MailFrameworkMod. Objective: To add meat and related features into the game. How does it work: Once you own a farm animal, you will receive a letter the next day with the Meat Cleaver. Using this tool on any adult animal twice will make meat pop in the air. If you trash the Meat Cleaver or lose it by any other means, you will receive the same letter the next day. If not, it's probably on some chest you forgot about. Baby animals can't be turned into meat. I don't plan on changing that. The more loved the animal is, the more meat you will receive. You can also get wool, duck feather and rabbit feet as well. Friendship and mood also affect the quality of the items. The total price sum of the items will always be higher than selling the animal directly. The total sum varies from that to about double of that value. You can sell meat using the shipping box or directly to Pierre and Marnie (I intend to disable selling to Marnie, it was something automatically enabled for the meat category, already in the games code). How to uninstall: Sell every meat you have. Trash the Meat Cleaver. Sleep to save the game. Delete the mod from the installation folder. Justification: CA intended to add meat from the start. That was one of the things that made me excited about the game and made me follow it's development for years. It was disappointing to knew it was cut out a few months before release. It was never about wanting to kill animals, it was about a whole aspect of the farming and lots of related items being removed from the game. Goals: (in no specific order) (done,working) Add the original meat items into the game. Add a way to turn animals into meat. Add a custom made sprite to the Meat Cleaver. Upload the source code of the mod. Add the original Cooking Items related to meat. Add a "friendly" none-violent option in the config. So people can add meat in the game and get it from their animals without having to use the Meat Cleaver. Make it compatible with most used mods if there are any conflicts. (on demand) Add a config file to customize the mod. Add a localization file to support multiple language. Make meat products count as animal items when selling it. Make some quests related to meat. Customize the villagers preferences to meat items (raw and cooked) Long term Goals for a 2.0 version: Original sprites for meat, with more than one kind from animal. Artisan goods from meat. New machinery to make Artisan goods related to meat. Original Cooking Items. Feedback: I'm open for ideas of different features and what should be priority on the list above. I'm also open for help. I have almost none experience with pixel art. Any contribution would be credited. I'm not from an english speaking country. So any typo or suggestions on how to improve the mods writing, please let me know.
