    A special thank you to the community for requesting Gus! He's a great character, and I hope I did him justice!
    I'm also celebrating 1000 downloads of the mods! An amazing feat for me, and it's all thanks to everyone here and on Nexusmods. Thank you!

    Gus is one of the most requested characters I've ever gotten for a narrative overhaul, and he was always on my list!

    This mod takes Gus and fills him with much needed personality! As you get to know him, he'll reveal his love of cooking, his adventures around the world, tales of forbidden love, and more! Like town gossip? He'll drop some from time to time!

    This mod adds in over 175+ lines of unique dialogue! That's new lines for every weekday, of every season , and every heart level!

    I've applied my narrative design philosophy to make becoming friends with Gus a worthwhile experience. He is not romance-able, however!


    How to install:
    Incredibly simple:
    1. Download and Unzip the XNB file.
    2. Go to where you installed Stardew Valley.
    3. Go to Stardew Valley\Content\Characters\Dialogue
    4. Move the XNB file over and overwrite the old one.
    5. You're done!

    This mod is Rated E10+, and uses no Gender Pronouns for your player character.

    I'm looking for FEEDBACK!
    If you played this mod and liked it, or didn't like it, please let me know here on Nexus Mod or at my personal e-mail at

            I've been playing this for a few days on a fresh save and just wanted to say you're a terrific writer! I always thought Gus was a bit bland but you've somehow managed to flesh him out nicely and he still feels in character. Can't wait to see what else he has to say as I gain hearts, thank you for a great addition to the game :)

                    The Perfect 10 Edition is out now!
                    Get it here! Right here! Click here!

                    Perfect 10 Edition:

                    ❤For people who got Gus' Heart Level to 10!❤
                    A best of mix of all the dialogue from this mod for every day of every season. This is for people who have had Gus at heart level 10 for awhile, or got tired of what he says at level 10 with the N.O.

                    With this, you'll see dialogue you may have missed, and he'll have something different to say the whole year long!

                    The install instructions are the same as above, however, the perfect 10 edition overwrites the previous mod! Which is okay if he's at Heart Level 10.
