Hi! These are some mods that I find pretty interesting for quality of life and minor flavor.

Currently only cover Quality of Life and game mechanics.

Mod Name Key Feature(s) Reason(s) to use Reason(s) not to use Category
Better Hay
  • Hay drops when cutting grass with the scythe before having silo
  • Farmer can pull hay from hoppers even if all animal feed locations are full
  • You can clear grass before building silo without feeling you wasted all those hays
  • You can directly purchase animals building instead of silo
  • You enjoy a slower progression


Water Bot
  • Farmer can be commanded to water the crops on their own.
  • You can avoid all those clicks
  • You want to maximize time efficiency after upgrading the watering can (The bot can't use wider area "power-up", yet?)
  • You get bothered with slightly incorrect animation
Stack Split Redux
  • Shift+right click can split the item stack into a specified amount instead of half.
  • You can quickly get the right amount of item
Forage Pointers
  • Blinking arrow appears on nearby forages and or digging spot (Range scales based on forage skill)
  • You have difficulty spotting the forages
  • You hate missing the forages behind trees, buildings, or grass (Yes, I'm talking about you truffles!)
  • You tend to forget digging spot exists
