    Hey all,
    Just wanted to update that I was swamped with college stuff, so I don't think I'll be updating the tool anytime soon.

      Disappointed to say this doesn't work, unless I'm doing something wrong. I've made unique XNB files for each animal, named them after breeds, but they don't show up for sale anywhere. The only animals that look changed are the ones I manually copied over my base game. This doesn't seem to add "Species" only holds onto those skins for you to switch in/out of.

        Do you have this in your steam mods folder?

          Yeah, is there suppose to be another location? I put all of my mods there, and run the modded form of the game (ModdedAPI launcher) instead of the regular.

            Did you load your save into the toolkit when you launched it?

            Here, maybe dissect my file from my mods folder and see what is different
            this is only 48 hours so:

              Ah thank you! that helped input the breeds. :) I'll do another test but it seems to have worked.

                Dear persons, although this is probably just me, whenever I try to open the zipped folder, the computer says file may have been moved or deleted. Anyone else have the same problem?
                Edit 1: Figured out how to get it working...

                  A question: does it work with version 1.1? Since I've switched to it I cannot run the full version of the tool, however I have to admit that as a gog user it took a lot of trial and error to get this working properly, as in placing shortcut and folder on desktop and installing Stardew in a default steam directory. After a clean reinstall it seems this method is not working anymore, though. Did anyone have a similar problem?

                    Do you think you could relink, would really love to add new breeds, even if I have to manually do it, thanks! :)

                      I have toolkit and xnb_node both.. I somehow managed to make it a fullversion, now I'm on a new pc and I even don't know how I did it. Someone could help me please? :( There are no instructions anywhere and if you want to link me to the xnb_node guide thread, it doesn't explain how you make this toolkit work with it. :/

                        Hey, I'm not great at explaining things, but I did get it to work so I can try. :)
                        You have to put xnb_node in the same folder as the game. For example, I have the game on steam, so the file location is Local Disk (C:)/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Stardew Valley. That folder should also hold your Content and Mods folders.
                        The only way I've gotten the toolkit to work is on the desktop. With the xnb_node in that folder, and the toolkit on the desktop it should load the full version.
                        In the toolkit load your save file (found appdata/roaming/stardewvalley/saves) and that should show you all of the animals you own in your game. Next make sure to load farm animals to be sure you got all of the animals in your game. The next tab is where you add animals. It's fairly self explanatory. The last tab is where you manage the animals that are in your game, in case you want to delete some. Once you've added animals, go back to the first tab and change the animals you own into the new breeds, then save the game.
                        Hopefully that makes sense, good luck :)

                          I did what you said and still have the lite version. I only see 2 tabs, "Save Editor" and when loaded, "Farm Animals" too. Not 4 tabs like in fullversion. I don't get why it's so hard and there are no instructions in first post :x

                          My game is in "A:/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Stardew Valley", not sure if this works?

                            This could be where the problem is. The toolkit is looking for the xbn_node in a really particular spot. I think I just happened to get it right after messing around because I had no idea what I was doing.
                            Try checking your C drive to see if you have a copy of your game there, maybe?

                              Aaand it works in C: now.. Well who would've thought of it. Thank you so much!

                                No problem, glad I could help! I was in the same boat hoping for a tutorial, so I guess there is now :)

                                  I think I'm doing something wrong. I dropped the NXBnode on my game directory and the Toolkit on my desktop, as per instructed here, and yet, I'm still only getting the lite version instead of the full version.

                                    Is your game directory in your C drive or in a different drive?

                                      C: drive, I just let Steam instal wherever it wanted to so I have the default instal directory

                                        And you put XNBnode in the root, not the content or mods or any other folder?

                                          I put the XNB where I put SMAPI and that awesome thing works just fine *shrugs*
                                          I'll just double check if I did anything wrong once I get home from work since I was still half asleep when I tried to do this in the morning. xD
