What's new

See the SMAPI 3.18 release highlights for details.

This update lets you customize mod load order and disable console input, improves performance when applying mod content edits, fixes multiplayer map edits, prepares for the upcoming Stardew Valley 1.6, and raises all deprecation messages to the final level.

(Reminder for C# authors: make sure your mod code is ready for the upcoming SMAPI 4.0.0, which will release alongside Stardew Valley 1.6.)

Patch updates:

  • 3.18.1 fixes mod texture edits sometimes cut off.
  • 3.18.2 fixes empty save backups on macOS, fixes player_add command's handling of custom slingshots, adds DelegatingModHooks for mod authors, and updates dependencies.
  • 3.18.3 mainly fixes bugs and errors, updates Korean translations, removes the LargeAddressAware flag, and adds PerScreen.IsActiveForScreen for mod authors.
  • 3.18.4 mainly shows whether you're the host or a farmhand in the window titles in multiplayer, improves the test_input console command, improves support for automated installs, updates dependencies, and fixes bugs and errors.

Requires Stardew Valley 1.5.6 or later on Linux/macOS/Windows.
