Modding:SMAPI compatibility

Jump to: navigation, search


SMAPI updates almost never break mods, except when the major version changes (e.g. SMAPI 1.0 and 2.0). This page lists known SMAPI mods and their compatibility with the latest versions of SMAPI and Stardew Valley.

What to do

  1. For each mod you have installed, follow the instructions in the list below. If it's not listed, try updating to its latest version.
  2. If a mod is still failing, post a message in the SMAPI 2.0 migration thread (with your SMAPI log attached) and we'll help.

SMAPI mods

Here's a list of mods tested with SMAPI 2.5+ and Stardew Valley 1.2.30+. Content packs aren't listed unless incompatible. It's updated periodically for new mod releases.

  1. This only shows whether a mod is compatible; it may have bugs unrelated to SMAPI compatibility.

Creating an unofficial update

To avoid conflicting with official updates, here's the recommended way to create an unofficial update. This assumes you're creating a basic update (not a continuation or reinvention), and the code is on GitHub (adjust the steps accordingly if it's elsewhere).

  1. Fork the code.
  2. Make your changes to that fork (see #updating a mod).
  3. Increase the version in manifest.json by 0.0.1-<yourname>-update.
    For example, if the current version is 1.0.0 and your username is SampleUser, you'd change the version to 1.0.1-sampleUser-update. If you need to release new versions of your update, add a number at the end like 1.0.1-sampleUser-update.2, 1.0.1-sampleUser-update.3, etc. This ensures that official versions will supersede unofficial ones (e.g. for update checks).
  4. Push your changes to GitHub.
  5. Post a release package to the SMAPI 2.0 thread with a link to your fork on GitHub.
    (If the mod uses the NuGet build package, there should be a release package named <mod name> <version>.zip in your bin folder.)
  6. Submit a pull request to the original author (if applicable).
