    I am working on this, it is coming out better than expected.

    1) I actually managed to make sprinklers crafting cost, and their monetary value change as needed.

    2) I figured how to make a really cool editing screen in-game, no need to hack text files =D

    I think I can release this on Sunday probably.

    EDIT: need suggestions for what key to use to open the menu by default, right now I am using "K", for no reason in particular.

      Woot :D
      Do you think you could make the key rebindable?

        Yes, but I need a "default" key too, I mean, how you will rebind it the first time?

          Would be nice to see how you did that within Storm API.
          Don't forget that demmonic is currently rewriting the api for some reason.

            Technically you could make it part of the config file. That way people can rebind the key without needing to go ingame and call up the menu.

              I am doing it with SMAPI now. I won't touch Storm until the rewriting ends.

                This is true, but this is for convenience.
                another perspective would be that technically you could look something up in the encyclopedia, or you could bring up google and google it O:

                I think K would be fine. Do you think you could bring up a tooltip or something that reminds the user that its K?

                    I considered all that... the problem is that SDV code don't make that much practical, for now I doubt this can be really done in any practical manner.

                      After some snags (sorry for that) I managed to work again, and soon I will actually finish it!

                      Here is a preview:

                      For those wondering the colours meanings:

                      red is non-watered
                      green is watered
                      blue is the game watered tiles, you can't edit those.

                        Finished the coding! Now I need to cleanup my messes, take screenshots, write README, that stuff, soon I will upload it all :)

                            Nice work, linking to this one in my thread.

                            Maybe add the option to add custom sprinklers = like scarecrow as a sprinkler :p

                              This actually already works :p

                              I just didn't added it to the GUI, but if someone copy and paste the configuration for a normal sprinkler, and change the number to be the spritesheet of a scarecrow, it becomes a scarecrow that sprinkles :)

                              I dunno what happen if you mess with the GUI config after doing this though... I never tested...

                              EDIT: forgot to say that after the update, the mod also should work in all those custom maps mod (the 1.0 version only worked on the farm itself, the new version works on the entire world, as long the location is in the location list).

                                Not sure if it's this mod or something I did but after removing simplesprinklers and adding this mod, I now have 2 cursors. If I zoom in completely the second cursor disappears

                                edit: only in inventory or chest screens

                                  What version of the mod, and what version of SMAPI?

                                  EDIT: you are using my chest label mod?

                                    I just downloaded your mod so that one, and ... ah, it seems the SDVMM updated the smapi version automatically. to the latest. it's probably other mods that are breaking now SMAPI 0.39.5

                                    On another note, your sprinklers work in the extended map mod by advize :3

                                      Good to know! I on purpose changed some code to make sure it would work with Advize's mod, great to know that it actually worked :) (I didn't tested... sorry...)

                                        @OrSpeeder and you did it again. I love your mods, for some reason you just keep delivering things that add so much value to the game that I don't want to play without them anymore. And your efforts to keep the game balanced and challenging by adding mechanics makes it even better. Keep up the great work :)
