I have to truly thank you for introducing me to Harmony. It's a fantastic tool that makes what used to be absolutely nightmarish a lot easier. Had some issues with internal errors while trying to get it to work, but I've seemingly accomplished the goal with it [though not in exactly the documented way]. Still can't see the item during the animation, likely a bug with my draw code for it (still wrapping my head around the TemporaryAnimatedSprite class), but at least the weeds are gone as the original function no longer runs on custom items. Soon as I get the draw fixed, I'll separate the custom object code from my project and wrap it into a neat little utility mod. You got me past the wall I hit, thanks so much! Also, my code is MIT [I'll get that documented on the repo later] so if anyone needs it, steal away Edit: Anyone interested is welcome to follow the new repo here: https://github.com/avarisc/StardewCustoms It's very, very early. Haven't even ported all the item code yet.
