[WEBAPP] upload.farm, generate map and share Stardew Valley savegames!

    Hi all! A friend and I wrote a site to allow people to generate maps/family portraits, display stats, and share the savegames from Stardew Valley, just by uploading the savegame. It's at http://upload.farm. I posted a link here to a previous version (at the time named SDV Summary) about a month ago, and it seemed well-received. We hope this updated version is useful to the community!

    The generated pages look something like this:

    Please let us know if you like it (or find any bugs)!

      The map generation feature has a small layering problem at the lower edge of the map. The pine trees show up beneath the grassy edge of the cliff, which looks a bit odd. Still, this thing is great. The only other complaint I have is that it doesn't take into account if your greenhouse is repaired or not.

        Ooh, nice!

        Would you mind adding a LICENSE file to the repo? Once my degree project is over, I want to write an SDV launcher which guards against bug-induced losses in various ways and, once I start work on that, I'd be willing to try to work with you to produce a single, shared "read SDV saves in Python" module.

          Hey Indigo Rose and ssokolow, thanks for your feedback.

          We're still working on the map generation, and there are quite a few bugs with it still, so apologies there! We'll hopefully push an update in the next day or so.

          We'll also look at choosing a license for the project, and look forward to hearing if you want to write a savegame-handling module!

            This is amazing! Thank you so much for making sharing farms easier!

              I can't seem to find my save file, anyone care to help? I go to the SV folder but there isn't one named Saves anywhere...

                Hi benevapwnz! If you copy this: %APPDATA%\StardewValley\Saves and paste it in the dialogue box that appears on upload.farm and press enter, it should put you in the folder your savegames are in. I see this:

                upload_2016-4-20_21-33-25.png

                In my case, I would then double-click the folder Crono_116230451, and select the file named Crono_116230451 (same filename as the directory) and upload that.

                I hope that helps, let me know if you're still lost!

                  Tyvm! Just found it and uploaded it. That little pic of me with Harvey and my baby Anabelle is just so sweet, love the site!

                    Okay. This thing is BEYOND COOL. I love all the stats! It makes me feel proud of my accomplishments.

                    But my farm kinda sucks so now I need to make it look nice before I upload again. xD I just entered a new year so it looks like a mess now.

                      Glad to hear you like it MagicallyClueless! I hope it will become a useful resource for people wanting to share their accomplishments in-game.

                        Hi, I'm the author of a similar project (stardew farm). I found your site really well done and polished. I also noticed you used Python, which is nice.

                        I know how hard it is to build something like this, so congratulations on your cool achievement - *fist bump*. I hope you keep going!

                          Oh, hey! I saw a few people linking to your site yesterday, it's very clean and polished! I bet image generation with Go is lightning fast, I was very impressed with the language when I gave it a try a while back, but I just can't kick my Python habit... hehe

                              I'm in a similar situation, but more with Rust. Given how much of an ecosystem exists around projects like Django, I don't really see enough benefit in Go when I can instead wait for Rust's web-related ecosystem to fill out and get much stricter compile-time checks and no reliance on a garbage collector when I do switch. (Which will also minimize my monthly outlay for hosting.)

                              (My main pain point with Python is probably that, for projects I really care about, I tend to burn out while reinventing Rust-like strict checks via the Nose unit testing framework.)

                                hi, so i can upload, but can i download other farms too? if so, how?

                                  Hi Stug. You can only download farms that the original owner has enabled sharing for. If they have, the download link will appear underneath the minimap. If you want to enable sharing for your own uploads, you can enable it in the same place.

                                    Yo, I was going to update my farm today on the site to share it, but the site seems to be down? Is it just my own internet problems (which is COMPLETELY possible) or did the server get overloaded?

                                      Okay this a very cool page, I've already gone and uploaded my three save files!

                                        It shouldn't have been down but it's possible it was - it seems to be running OK at the minute! We had a huge spike in traffic during the night (I'm UK based), I might have to look at enabling queuing for processing uploads if it keeps up. Sorry for the outage you experienced!

                                          i think it was on my end, since i figured out what was wrong. the link in the thread doesn't work for me for some reason, but when i put "www" before the url, it seemed to work. i don't get why that happened though, since the link worked fine for me earlier.

                                          but yeah, definitely my end. sorry for the scare!
