    Hello! I was just wondering if adding TOO many mods would crash/make stardew super slow?

    So far, all i have is mods that make my stardew look more cute and pastel (building changes, hair and clothes changes, interface color changes) And I wanted to add some color scheme mods as well.

    I don't know if theres a limit because some of these mod are so cute and I already know im going to be adding a lot of them, so I just wanted to make sure!

      I have around 50 (half SMAPI, half XNB ) and have had no issues beyond one or two conflicts to sort out.

          You can mod the game until it doesn't even look like the same game and it should still run fine. If you're only swapping out xnb's then its just the visuals that change, you're not messing with the coding itself. Mod away!

            I have some issue sometime when launching the game.
            it takes 30 minutes or so for the game to load properly.

            I have like 31 .dll mods and about 60+ .xnb re-texture/overhaul mods (I use XNBLoader to load .xnb file tho).

            I don't know if it's just me... I'm not bothered at all tho.

            The game runs fine btw, it just takes forever to load sometime.
            sometime it will run immediately

              i think there are a few mods that conflict with one another but for the most part they can all get along. the modding community seems to work together very well

                I idly wonder if there's a Ship of Theseus threshold for replacing game files with mods. :poke:

                  I was actually just wondering, where is the point where you're no longer playing SDV and playing a different game 'based' on the SDV engine? heh

                    I have 437 mods, no issues.
                    I use a i5 8600k and an RX580 8GB. I play at 4K too.
                    Takes 1-2 minutes to load the game from my m.2 ssd though.

                      i have 200+ mods, so far no problems. takes 6 minutes to open the game [yes i used a potato] and around 5 to 7 minutes to load.

                        I'm currently downloading mods to play with I have around 80 so far, I think it depends on how good your pc is. It takes a couple of minutes to upload the game but so far its good, a slight lag but my pc isn't the best gaming computer.
