Stardew Valley’s developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has fired off his newest patch be aware for the sport’s upcoming 1.6 replace, and it’s fairly probably the funniest one but. ConcernedApe is tweeting out a single element from the 1.6 replace’s patch notes as soon as a day till it drops for PC on March 19, and so they have all been probably the most obscure fixes and tweaks you can think about. The primary repair he shared will add saplings to fruit timber, permitting gamers to extra simply relocate their timber in the event that they wanted or needed to. Stardew Valley gamers misplaced it over that one. Then ConcernedApe confirmed a fan principle that harvesting in a single path was quicker than one other, and promised a repair that’d make it simply as quick each methods. One other patch be aware addressed the radius of the participant’s downward sword swing and simply yesterday, the developer introduced the replace would make it ever so barely simpler to push your pets out of the best way. I actually thought that final one could be the funniest one, however as we speak ConcernedApe outdid themselves.

Their newest replace on 1.6’s content material targets a glitch that many didn’t even know existed. Stardew Valley permits gamers to pursue romances with the residents of Pelican City, which may ultimately end in a wedding. First, you need to work together with a personality, give them presents, and max out your relationship with them, which is represented by hearts. At ten hearts, gamers can suggest marriage and have a marriage, however afterwards their spouses achieve extra hearts, reducing the worth of the earlier most. This is able to generally end in a glitch the place, instantly after getting married, spouses would hilariously spiral right into a melancholy and spend the primary week of marriage unhappy and in mattress.

Now, spouses will expertise a “honeymoon” part within the first week that forestalls them from instantly turning into hole shells of themselves. That’s proper, Stardew’s developer is fixing all of your marriages. Everybody, say thanks.

The neighborhood understandably misplaced it. Many responded to ConcernedApe’s tweet by shouting at others about what they had been as much as that was miserable their spouses. It’s particularly humorous as a result of nobody I do know who performs Stardew has ever been regular in regards to the characters they romance. Far too lots of my family members and shut buddies are unnaturally drawn to Stardew’s brooding alcoholic Shane, doting on him to alarming extents. And don’t even get me began on the Abigail and Leah lovers on the earth.

My buddies’ hyperfixations on their in-game romances seemingly ensured that the glitch by no means reared its ugly head. Others did get it and will by no means clarify why it occurred. Stardew’s 1.6 replace will now assure completely happy marriages for all, until you hunt down a divorce in fact. Anybody else really feel that chill fall over the room?

Along with all these tweaks and fixes, Stardew’s 1.6 replace will probably be introducing a bunch of contemporary content material, like a brand new pageant, making it a jam-packed, expansion-sized addition to the sport. It’ll additionally make the sport simpler to mod, however that hasn’t stopped ConcernedApe from sprucing it to a tee earlier than presumably handing it over to the modding neighborhood for the foreseeable future. Afterwards, all eyes are on the eventual console and cellular ports of 1.6 and ConcernedApe’s subsequent recreation, Haunted Chocolatier, which seems rather a lot like Stardew however with a bit extra motion and doubtless extra ghosts.
