I've sunk about 30 hours into it myself. Shame about the preg thing, although the dev has mentioned that expanding the marriage part of the game is on the top of his list.
What system is it on? 3DS, Steam, something *else*?
Also, is there a cost?
Steam, and last I checked either 14.99 or 19.99. I've been thinking about picking it up myself, as I'm a massive Harvest Moon/Rune Factory fan and it looks right up my alley.
There seem to be plenty of mods for the game already which makes me wonder if a pregnancy mod would be doable.
It would be an interesting development, since the game foesnt really have a 'pregnancy state'. Kids just basically show up the day after you want one. I could probably edit some sprites to make a character look pregnant.
Pixels have not made me this happy since I caught my first shiny pokemon.
give me a day or so and I can probably make preg edits for all the female characters. Granted they will be forever pregnant since this is an art alteration and not a pregnancy gameplay mod. But it's certainly fun to look at.
that was the most annoying thing about Harvest Moon, too. You get married and then you get locked out of your house for a day. But before then it's business as usual, there is no variation at all.
>>42>> Granted they will be forever pregnant
You call it a bug, I call it a feature.
I wonder if it'd be possible to tie it to the marriage or bouquet flag? Not that I'm asking, if you can *actually* get any sprite mods whatsoever into the game it'd more than make my day. What tools do you use for this sort of thing?
Stardew Valley uses the .xnb file system to store it's sprite sheets (I'm not…technical enough to know why) basically I found an .xnb to .png converter that somebody linked on steam, opened them up in photoshop (or any art program I guess as long as it can do pixels) to edit them, and then I'm going to find a .png to .xnb converter and zip them up. WHen I'm done, all anyone else would need to do is go in their steamapps folder to find the Stardew Valley files, and go into Content and Characters and replace the games files. There aren't really any tools to use on your end, all you'll need to do is drag and drop (and backup the files incase you ever want to go back)
Question though, which would you guys prefer, everyone to have bare bellies (like above) or clothed? Or maybe a mix depending on the characters personality? If so, who should go bare
So one can't mod the game logic itself?
Oh you can. There's a ton of mods out already that do that, it's just out of my experience range.
Personally, bare belly for Abigail and clothed for Maru seems appropriate to me, but I don't have very strong feelings either way. I'd probably go by what seems appropriate for what they're wearing. Jeans and a tee? Bare belly. Overalls? Covered belly.
Pretty sure those sprites are recycled for the wedding.
Dammit man, at this rate I'll be replaying the game just to marry huge Maru.
You sir, are a scholar and gentleman! Eagerly awaiting the mod.
those are looking really good
Looking adorable! I might try and write a little Stardew fanfic to go with these.
I wonder about the possibility of modding the player character's sprite? I had a look at the sheet, though, and it looked pretty complicated (compared to the NPCs) Not even sure how the shirts work in relation to the body model. Definitely don't care about the player character as much as the NPCs, mostly just curious as to how the game builds up the character model.
>>59> I might try and write a little Stardew fanfic to go with these.
Mmmm yes pls.
I also took a look at the player model. And I don't think it's currently possible. The clothing sprites are too densely packed onto their sheet to make any sort of bellies attached to them.
Also, I figured out how to alter dialog, so I'm gonna throw in some pregnancy related lines for everyone. Stuff like Abigail liking the summer rains because the water splashing against her belly makes her baby kick, Penny enjoying tutoring the kids because it will be good practice for when hers are bornn maybe Maru's dad being proud of how her daughter is popping out of all her overalls (she IS a daddys girl after all) etc etc And of course, altering the dialog for the spring dance to make it a straight up fertility festival *eyebrow wiggle*
Hmm, still looking at the player model, there's an underlying sprite onto which the clothes are applied. I wonder if we were to edit the underlying model and then either replace one of the shirts with a wholly transparent block, or just make the bottom transparent, would this have the desired result? There are still an awful lot of frames on the player character sheet and I'm not altogether sure what most of them are for, but it seems this method might be possible?>>61
Very cool. Are you using another mod for portraits already? Abigail and Maru don't look like the portraits I'm used to.
It's already on nexus. I like the lewd portraits, personally :Dhttp://www.nexusmods.com/stardewvalley/
I guess it would be possible to delete one of the shirt options and then make the base pregnant. But damn, that's a lot of base sprites to edit.http://imgur.com/gallery/WCfeO
here's a walkthrough I've been using for modding if any of you guys are curious/want to try. I wish there was some sort of time editor mod that let you jump around the calender to check out events.
anyone have any dialog requests?
God I forgot how much Windows CMD sucks. A small tip, rather than opening a CMD and navigating to the Stardew Valley folder, you can shift-click the folder and get the "open command window here" option.
Happily unpacking now, think I will have a poke at some of the dialogue myself!
Ah, my suspicions confirmed. MarriageDialogue.yaml One set of dialogue for all possible spouses. How disappointing. But perhaps this gives a little more scope for some interesting mod work…
Actually, there's specific dialog for each spouse included in that one file. For instance, it's separated out into lines like 'outdoor' 'outdoor_maru' 'outdoor_abigail' etc
and thanks for the tip! That should make my job a lot easier. Word of warning though, something's bugged up my ambient lighting in the game. Trying to source what file might have changed it, and where it had anything to do with the unpacking/packing stuff. I might just pack it somewhere else and then move over specific files to avoid touching anything else
This has some relevant advice for anyone editing dialogue. In particular it explains some of the text codes, e.g. how to show happy/sad portraits.
Yesss, love it when the ol' fetish manages to squirm its way into the games I'm interested in.
If any modders out there get to cracking pregnancy based dialogue/mods, might be neat to use this thread as a way for others to supply dialogue chains, sprite work, etc etc.
We could also start a chatgroup on whatever chat service is most popular. Might benefit from quicker file sharing and idea storming
Hurrah! Successfully modded some dialogue. Waifu Abigail now talks like she's huge and horny half the time.
Unfortunately it's a little difficult to see a lot of different spouse dialogue without just burning through the calendar. I wonder if there's a way to allow you to talk more in one day. Also I couldn't find the message that your spouse uses when they've watered crops / fed animals. Any idea where this is?
As promised: http://www.pregchan.com/c/res/4350.htm
(made the player character female 'cuz she is in my game. Called her "Jackie" since the protagonist in HM is "Jack", right?)
Awesome! I love it, and i love the idea behind it.
You're killin' me anon! I need this in my game.
Here's my own attempt at a dialogue mod. I've been running with this for several days in my game without encountering any issues, but if you're using it PLEASE BACKUP the files you're replacing and be warned. Instructions included inside:https://www.dropbox.com/s/evqk50r36xgr9i1/StardewValleyPregDialogueMod.rar?dl=0
This is dialogue ONLY, no sprites.
YML files included so you can see what I've changed.
Affects the dialogue for spouses, not unmarried girls. They'll talk about being pregnant a fair bit, and also have some hornier dialogue too. Finally, changed Abigail's dialogue when she receives a gift now so that she talks about being pregnant / cravings. Didn't do this for the other girls since Abigail is the only character who always eats whatever gifts she's given.
Would kind of like to go through all the NPCs (starting with the girls) and sort of write-in the setup of the fanfic, but not sure if I'll have time.
Did anyone manage to complete a pregnant Abigale sprite at all? I'd love to download it!
I'm going to try changing the bachelors to bachelorettes. I guess changing the dialogue, sprites, and the "male"/"female" option in the NPCDisposition.xnb file would be enough, but I'm going to have to test that. Can anyone currently confirm?
Oh, as in genderswapping the male characters into chicks? A-And then getting them pregnant too?
This is relevant to my interests.
:^) We have a similar view on the Stardew world. But alas I wasn't able to do it. If you edit the name in the 'NPCDispositions' file then it fails to detect any of the files, and nothing shows up. From what I've found it seems hard-coded into the game unfortunately :( Will keep trying though!
NPCDispositions, and other files, are arranged in key value pairs, i.e. for the "key" of Abigail, the "value" is "teen/rude/outgoing/neutral/female/datable/Sebastian/Town/fall 13/Caroline 'mom' Pierre 'dad'/SeedShop 1 9"
Changing the names here to change the names of the characters in the game is sort of like changing the address on your mail in the hopes that it'll change the address of your house. It won't, it just means the mailman won't be able to deliver your letters anymore, or in Stardew, the game won't be able to find the data for "Sebastian" because you've changed the disposition data to "Sara".
Sadly, though, you might be right about the names being hardcoded. Had a look through the unpacked files and couldn't find anything useful. What we're looking for is a display name distinct from the system name for the characters. If I spot one I'll give you a shout.
Good way of putting it, didn't think of it like that.
A lot of data is hardcoded, I'm at least 90% sure of that. I tried messing around with the Spring13 event and tried to add my own character into the mix, but was unsuccessful. The roster of characters it has seems to be spawned into that event from something defined somewhere in the games internal files. I did find, however, changing the gender within the NPCDispositions file works, so you could replace Sam with a female sprite and different dialogue and it'd still work fine I guess! :P
Patch 1.06 today adds new unique dialogue for all spouses :D this does mean that any spouse dialogue mods are now out of date and won't work. Might write up something new for Abby after I've had some time to play with the patch.
This was linked off reddit which may be of some help, or maybe just some enjoyment:http://imgur.com/a/3T3Jn
Sadly not pixel art, but maybe still of use?
I found a way to add an NPC, but I haven't experimented much as of late.
I am very much tempted to make a mod if I can make the NPC date-able, but a lot of people have really good dialogue changes and mods, and stuff, and I kinda dont want to tread on their turf.
Never be afraid to create something. It's like if somebody was making a cake, and you made a cake, well now there is too cakes. You can't go wrong with cake.
In this case, the more mods the better!
Oh good, then do I have good news for you! NPC tests work perfectly! It'd also not be out of the question to replace the male characters with female ones either, along with a few more NPCs.
I'll work on a mod which overhauls a few of the NPCs and makes things a little more interesting within the game. More likely than not I'll start my own thread to avoid clogging this one up.
Speaking of mods, does anyone have and/or be willing to share the lewd portraits mentioned previously? I'd rather not have to buy a membership for NexusMods just for that one particular thing if I can avoid it.
You might as well post in this one. A cluttered thread is better than a cluttered board. XD
Don't need to pay to get files for Nexus. Just need an e-mail address. Just get a 5-minute mail account and there you go.
So, uh, any word here?
I'm working on something which will add more of a fetishised background to the main 5 girls.
- Abigail will be pregnant due to a practice summoning ritual gone wrong
- Penny will have a huge belly button fetish (pregnancy not so much, but this is probably going to change)
- Haley will secretly wear an empathy belly (she will be caught by the player at some point),
- Maru will want to have children, but worries if she's up to the task.
- Leah will be neutral and say she's not into pregnancy at the start but further through the story she'll lighten up to the idea and start to embrace it.
she's a new character I'm planning to add who will act as Abigail's rival, the two are identical.
I'm working on Abigail right now, but I only plan to release when I have all the sections complete. Makes for a tidier mod.
(Also, just going to say that I have to release date as of yet.I'm working on this between work, and I have very little time.)
Welp, I'm definitely getting this game once you release that mod xD
If you need help with dialogue filler / pixel art, drop a line here and I'm sure some of us can help out a bit.
And as always, at your own pace good anon :)
Quick question: how many of the young people in Stardew Valley have fathers? I was toying with the idea, for fanfic, that spontaneous pregnancy is common in the valley, and it got me to thinking about how many characters it could apply to. I haven't befriended a lot of the villagers, though, so it's possible many of them will specifically say "Oh my dad died" or whatever.
Abigail: Caroline is her mother, Pierre is her father, although there's some speculation in the community that Abigail is actually the daughter of Caroline and the Wizard.
Sebastian: Robin is his mother. Father unknown / never mentioned? (definitely not Demetrius)
Maru: Robin her her mother, Demetrius is her father.
Penny: Pam is her mother. Father unknown / never mentioned?
Jas: Parents deceased / unknown (she's the other target of Wizard speculation)
Alex: Mother deceased / father unknown
Anyone out there heard any more about this?
I think i saw the ghost of this thread
i like when people abandon a mod and dont say anything or update anyone on it and leave people waiting to the point they get pissed and leave
I like it when people show up in a necro thread to bitch about it being dead and be assholes about four month old posts because they clearly have nothing better going on.
I am the guy who said I was working on a mod here: >>116
Sorry, I've had no time since I made this post - as I feared - due to a personal life that doesn't stop giving. Unfortunately they took a higher priority than a mod for a game that I no longer feel 100% inspired by anymore.
Chances are I probably wont continue my mod, or what very little work I did for it months back. I highly doubt I was the only one working on a mod like this, so all I can say is be patient and don't be a dick. Good things come to those who wait.
Ahh shoot. Well, thanks for the update regardless! Do you think there's enough work you've done to post it up somewhere in the hopes that someone else might pick it back up?
I can definitely look - but I don't think I did any art yet, just dialogue edits and mapping out. I know I've lost the map. Sorry :c
I was wondering if someone would not try tohave the spites bare stomach. And also i only have a mac(dont remind me how bad it is i know first hand) so it would be great if there could be a mac version of the mod
