Yep, mine carts are huge too. But halving the time it takes to get anywhere else is huge. I doubted it too - horse was one of the last animals I got after chickens, ducks, rabbits, cows, goats and pigs... but in any subsequent playthrough it will be the first.

Pigs are great too, admittedly. Took a while for them to get going, but they're finding over a truffle each per day now, and my two oil-makers are basically running 24/7 to keep up. Good money.

I didn't bother with sheep though, as rabbits generate wool as well (no idea why) but without the need of shears (they just drop it), and also have a chance of dropping highly valuable rabbit's feet, which is a universal 'like' if you're giving gifts to people (all except Penny, who hates them).

FYI on the pigs, the description wasn't clear - I thought I needed to let them out of the little yard/pen I built around the barn in order for them to go and find truffles, but they'll actually do it inside that yard area. Means they don't find any during winter, which is a bit of a drag, making them the only animal that doesn't produce in that quarter of the year.

FYI II a patch landed today that increased the requirements for building kegs. I think they need oak or pine resin now, which takes a while to generate, so if you aren't already tapping a bunch of those trees on your farm you should probably start asap.

Some interesting stuff in there.

So gutted, died for the first time in the mines last night, and lost a shedload of stuff from my pack. I had been smelting, so all my coal reserves were in my pack, plus loads of stone, wood, hardwood, all things that are a pain to harvest and all gone. Plus that voyage to the mines had seen me reach level 100 - I lost the star that I won at level 100, plus have 'forgotten' the previous 11 levels.

Like a tit, I didn't think to just quit and reload, starting the day afresh either, so have saved the damned game again since.

Ah well, life's little curveballs...

Yeah that's the one flaw with having the game only save when you go to bed, you can just negate any death in the mines by quitting the game.

I think Snowy just added Survival Mode to Stardew Valley :lol:

I have heard that dying is a bitch, consequently I always take a stack of food when I go spelunking, and if I run out and my health drops below 25% I call it quits for the day.

A wise approach, and one I am also now adopting!

Multiplayer beta is live...

https://stardewvalley.net/stardew-valley-v1-3-beta/

Currently the beta is only available to Steam users. GOG users will gain access in a few days.

To enable the beta in Steam, right click the game in your library and select properties. On the window that pops up there will be a ‘betas’ tab. In the text box, type the password for the branch: jumpingjunimos. Then click the ‘Check Code’ button.

If you’ve done that correctly, you will now be able to select the ‘beta’ option from the drop down box.

Once you’ve done that, Steam will start downloading the update.

It made for a very nice Switch game, so I think the Vita will be equally ideal.

EU Vita release pushed back to the 24th due to some legal nonsense with the game being on sale currently...

24th is cutting it a little fine before I leave for London. Fingers crossed I can grab it before I go. [-o<
