RELEASED Genderswapped Bachelors v1.5: just kidding about the names

Discussion in 'Characters' started by aracco, Mar 17, 2016.

    aracco Void-Bound Voyager

    Alex, Sam, Sabrina, Harriet and Ellie

    This changes all five characters' portraits and sprites, including flower dance dresses and wedding dresses! It also changes most, though not all, of the dialogue referencing these characters as male. (Some lines, such as Sam's "I'm a healthy boy" when she visits the doctor, are hardcoded and not so easily fixed. I apologize. Still, if you find an error, please let me know!)

    This mod does not currently change the characters' names. I've been busting my chops over this for some time and it is very complicated. See this post for more info.

    As an XNB mod, this mod is not easily compatible with others that change dialogue. If you'd like compatibility with some other mod, just let me know and I'll see what I can do. :)

    If you need help with anything please don't hesitate to ask. Seriously.

    Please post here if you have any issues, and enjoy!

    With short-haired Sam:

    With medium-haired Sam:

    Both hairstyles are now included in both downloads so you can easily switch between them! In the Content/Portraits folder, you should find an extra .xnb file called Sam_long or Sam_short, depending on your version. To change, simply rename your current Sam.xnb to something else, and then rename Sam_long.xnb or Sam_short.xnb to just Sam.xnb.

    1. Navigate to your Stardew Valley directory (eg, C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Stardew Valley (sorry GoG folks)).
    2. Back up the Content/Portraits, Content/Characters, and Content/Data folders, or just the relevant files -- or, heck, back up the whole thing.
    3. Extract GenderswappedBachelors_2.0 to the Stardew Valley folder. It will ask you if you want to overwrite files; say yes to all.

    - Fixed a file to make the game understand characters as female. Only works on a new game (unless you edit your save; remind me to make a guide for that)

    - Added a couple of dialogue changes I missed last time

    - Added per-character marriage dialogue replacements (1.06 update)

    - Released Harriet!
    - Removed Ellie's lipstick on her sprite

    - Made Sabrina and Ellie shorter
    - Adjusted the shading on Ellie's portrait to be more in line with the other characters, and made her closed-eye expression look happier
    - Added dialogue changes!
    - Finished reworking some of Sam, Alex, and Ellie's sprites (oops)
    - Added flower dance dresses and wedding dresses for everybody, yay~

    Thank you all for your lovely comments, compliments and criticism alike! I appreciate it all. <3

          I thought Sam is supposed to be teenager, female counterpart looks way older.

          Ellie also looks weird and very different from other three.

          Sabrina and Alex are really good though.

              I think maybe the dark makeup is giving you that impression? Still looks good though imo
              No idea what you're talking about regarding Ellie, she matches the style and looks great.
              All in all this is a great mod! Sebastian/Sabrina is my favorite <3

                Sam appears to be short a few animations. Sam currently flips between the male/female sprites while at the pool table on Friday nights. Slightly entertaining to watch.

                      All the marriable are meant to be early to mid 20s since it's XX(20) years since your grandpa died and things like leah leaving her apartment with her boyfriend to live on her own suggest ages from like 20-25.

                            I'm only using this for Alex and it's working fine even if you only pick one character. Thanks!

                              No problem! I'm assuming you're not using the dialogue files -- I don't recall Alex needing too many dialogue changes, but if you spot any inconsistencies I'd be happy to alter those files for you, just let me know!

                                I did put in the one that's called Alex. And she did refer to herself as female once, that pleased me!

                                  Actually, try Alex, Evelyn, George and Haley. You should be good with just those, without them affecting anyone else.

                                        Good news:


                                        Even better news: this was done through XNB modding! It requires a little find and replace on your save file, and if the various Elliott.xnb files remain you get this:


                                        But still -- it's possible and even easy! Hooray!

                                          At long last, my Stardew universe is once again in proper balance, i.e. surrounded by chicks with no competition. Great work on these sprites and portraits. It'll just be hard unseeing the bachelors...
