    Question where does one find the higher versions of SMAPI? I can only find 39.2

      Here you go. Versions higher than 0.39.2 are currently all pre-releases, though. If you want the "latest release", just follow this link.

        So i noticed the tooltips are shown under the icons for npcs which is somewhat annoying, not a major issue though. is there anyway to sort that out?

          I personaly liked the names at the left bottom. Looks alot more "clean" to me. But it seems like i get "over"-voted :wut:

            I didn't update the SMAPI 0.39.2 version because zoom scaling is a lot uglier. SMAPI 0.39.3 and up handle zoom scaling on its own and textures look way better when resized. There's not much incentive for me to to update the 0.39.2 version because soon other modders will update their own mods up to 0.39.5. But what the heck, I'll update it for you :) again, you might notice text boxes and markers being ugly (have to use nearest-neighbor resizing [pixely] instead of bilinear resizing [anti-aliased, but fuzzy] because quality gets bad).

            At the moment these votes are so evenly distributed I don't know what to do D: If it continues to stay even, I'll probably just end up adding both.


            just updated 0.39.2 version.

              i don't mean to pressure you into releasing it earlier :), however am actually using the 39.5+ version with SMAPI 39.5 and thought you should know about this minor glitch that's all.

                You might want to test it out with SMAPI 0.39.6 (and make sure you use the latest version of the mod) -- it seems to works just fine, with no overlap and the NPC tooltip is placed right above location tooltip.

                  Yup, SMAPI 0.39.6 is backwards compatible with 0.39.2 mods, SMAPI versions 0.39.5, 0.39.4, and 0.39.3 were not. So now people can use SMAPI 0.39.6 for mods made for SMAPI 0.39.2 and up.

                    Fantastic, will do, thanks :D

                    Edit: Works perfectly with 39.6 and no overlapping :3

                      So I look at these poll results and like...
                      Total of 9 votes for bottom-left corner
                      Total of 16 votes for above location tooltip
                      total of 14 vote of below location tooltip


                      There's no clear winner, so what the heck, I made it so that you can just CHOOSE which one you want in the game.

                      When you have the map page opened, you can press the TAB key to switch among the three different modes. Whichever mode you settle on, it'll save to the config file so you don't have to switch it every time you play the game.

                      Also, if you don't like to use the TAB key, you can change it directly in the config.json file.

                      You can test it in the lastest update I just pushed. There's no longer a 0.39.2 version since SMAPI 0.39.6 is backwards compatible with 0.39.2. So I recommend you get the latest SMAPI version :)

                      I'll be releasing the stable version after few hours of testing.

                        Get SMAPI here:
                        Mod download link on the top right.

                        When I started the project two weeks ago I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and now I released my very first mod! Shout out to OrSpeeder for his guide to help get started and resources to study from. And of course shoutout to all the people who helped test the mod in its WIP stage, and to the people working on updating SMAPI :)

                        Additional notes:
                        - You shouldn't try to find NPC relative to your position since the game does not update your position on the Map real-time, just your general location.
                        - The map page scales inaccurately with the game map. I tried to compensate for it as best as I can, but do notify me if you see an NPC wandering off to Atlantis.

                        v1.0 Changes

                        - Fixed a bug where NPCs wouldn't show up on the map if the player was married.

                        When reporting bugs/errors, please provide me with the following:
                        - Year, Season, Day, Married status, Children (if any)
                        - Your SMAPI version and StardewValley game version
                        - Events/Actions during the game as error occured
                        - Error log from console (if any)

                        Or if SMAPI crashes, find the error logs file in

                              Are you using SMAPI 0.39.6? It's the recommended version since it's backwards compatible.

                                    Always happy to help and practice my Korean :D Thanks.
                                    Good thing Github has a feature to show me where people were referred from or else I would have never found out that there was a Korean community for this.
                                    I finished translating my mod to Korean, but now I have to figure out how to make the text be actual words and not symbols.

                                      I seem to always crash when the time is below 9:00 AM and after 6:00 PM but not in between... Now I have been using a older version of SMAPI but not too old so I am going to try again and get back to you...

                                          its hard to make your mod work only when u know the npc?
                                          I mean , if u dont know npc yet ( game start ) then the npc does not show on map ...
                                          I dunno if any of u guys asked before sooo...
