Farm Maps

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
The selection area for maps at character creation.

There are six different Farm Maps to choose from in Stardew Valley. Each map offers a unique layout of the Farm, offering different benefits and favoring specific skills. Only one map can be chosen when starting a new game, and cannot be changed once selected.

The Standard Farm offers the most space to plant crops and raise animals. The other five farms lack farming area, but offer special perks in comparison:

The Standard Farm encourages Farming
The Riverland Farm encourages Fishing
The Forest Farm encourages Foraging
The Hill-top Farm encourages Mining
The Wilderness Farm encourages Combat
The Four Corners Farm offers perks from other maps and encourages Multiplayer

The interior of the farmhouse is decorated to match the theme of the chosen map. This includes furniture, wallpaper and flooring. The exterior of the house is the same regardless of map choice.

There is an abandoned building which can later be turned into your Greenhouse on all maps.

  • The farming area is split by cliffs into four distinct areas, each reminiscent of some of the other Farm Maps.
  • Top left: Forest Farm. This quadrant has a small grassy area containing a Large Stump, and weeds here can transform into the same unique ones that always drop mixed seeds as on the Forest Farm.
  • Top right: Standard Farm. This quadrant has the most farming space.
  • Bottom left: This quadrant has a pond. Players have a 50% chance of catching forest pond fish, i.e., fish that are found in the Cindersap Forest pond.[1]
  • Bottom right: Hilltop Farm. This quadrant contains a small quarry that spawns Rocks and Ore and Geode nodes depending on the player's Mining level.
  • Additional cliffs and ponds decrease the overall farming area.
  • The number of tillable tiles on this map is 2952.
Multiplayer

Bugs

  • The player is prevented from placing any flooring or path on tiles (40,64) and (41,64) of the Standard Map, the southmost pair of tiles adjacent to Cindersap Forest. An attempt to do so causes the multiplayer chat window to appear, even in single player. The window can be dismissed by pressing the Escape key.
