Stoffton is a thriving mill town located north and west of Pelican Town. Stoffton is designed to be played either as a standalone mod (you can access Stoffton as soon as the bus has been repaired) or with Fostoria. If you have both Fostoria and Stoffton installed, you can walk to Fostoria and Stoffton immediately upon starting a new game.
Stoffton is a substantial expansion to the base game, including two large maps, nearly forty (40) locations, eleven (11) shops, almost fifty (50) new NPCs and many new marriage candidates. The total number of marriage candidates is flexible. Two non-marriage candidates (Mac and Yosef) can be changed to marriage candidates using the config.json file and two marriage candidates (Dahlia and Josef) can become non-marriage candidates based upon your choices in the game.
Stoffton can be found on Nexus Mods here.
Stoffton has two large areas for you to explore. The Stoffton map includes the town proper, and the Rocky Ford map contains a rural area south of town (between Fostoria and Stoffton, if you have Fostoria installed).
Rocky Ford (the rural map)
Rocky Ford is primarily home to the Schafer family. While much of the family still resides on the family farm, one has moved away and others have moved to Stoffton to open various businesses. Currently, three generations live on the Schafer Ranch which has grown over the years to include several additional farmhouses, barns, coops, and pastures.
For a description of all the locations in Rocky Ford, see Rocky Ford Locations.
Stoffton (the town map)
Stoffton is a large town north of Rocky Ford and can be reached by bus after the bus is repaired. (Stoffton can also be reached by walking if Fostoria has been installed.)
For a description of all the locations in Stoffton, see Stoffton Locations.
Stoffton and Rocky Ford include nearly fifty new villagers including over a dozen marriage candidates.
Candidates with Options
Two marriage candidates (Dahlia and Josef) can become non-marriage candidates based upon your choices in the game, and two non-marriage candidates (Mac and Yosef) can be changed to marriage candidates using the config.json file.
Click to expand the complete descriptions for changes to the in-game story and events that can be changed for each character. These descriptions include spoilers.
|Edit config.json file
|By default, Dahlia is not a marriage candidate; instead, you can play a storyline that involves helping Dahlia and Mac marry and move to their own house in Rocky Ford. However, if you wish to make Dahlia a marriage candidate, you can change the setting in the config.json file for Mac. (see "Configurations" below.)
|Player's choices in game
|You can choose to befriend and marry Josef, if you wish. However, if you do not marry him, you can play a storyline that allows you to encourage Josef to return to his engineering career while continuing to live in Stoffton. Josef will renovate (and move to) the original Schafer house (on the northern edge of Rocky Ford near the entrance to Stoffton). Note: You have two opportunities to encourage Josef to renovate the house and continue his dreams: Josef's eight-heart and ten-heart events.
|Edit config.json file
|By default, Mac is not a marriage candidate. This allows him to eventually rebuild the abandoned Vogel farmhouse in Rocky Ford and propose marriage to Dahlia. However, you can change this setting to make Mac a marriage candidate. If you change the setting, Mac will not renovate the house and you will not see the proposal or marriage heart events (for Mac and Dahlia).
|Edit config.json file
|By default, Yosef is not a marriage candidate. This allows him to renovate one of the derelict buildings in the older part of Stoffton (northwest) and open "The Bolt" a gathering place for the town, open in the afternoon and evenings. If you change the setting, Yosef will become a marriage candidate, but he will not renovate the building or open "The Bolt".
Stoffton and Rocky Ford hold an additional twenty-five people for you to befriend. Some of the residents have lived in the area their entire lives and some have relocated to the community. The residents range in age from very, very young to very, very wise.
In Rocky Ford, you can meet a few non-human characters as part of the Stoffton mod. The houses are open after dark, and at least one family runs a small shop.
The config.json file is created the first time you run Stardew Valley with the Stoffton mod installed. To make changes to the config.json file:
- Install Stoffton (and any other required mods).
- Launch Stardew Valley.
- At the main screen, quit Stardew Valley before you load or create a farm.
- Open the Stoffton mod folder.
- Open the "[CP] Stoffton" folder.
- Edit the config.json file.
Note: The config.json changes for Stoffton include changing in-game events. The table below explains the settings and includes potential spoilers for game play.
|Mac and Dahlia are not marriage candidates by default in the mod. The storyline, as designed, allows the player to become friends with Mac and encourage him to renovate a house for himself near his chickens. Mac and Dahlia can then be encouraged to date each other, and eventually they will marry and relocate to the renovated house in Rocky Ford.
If you change Mac and Dahlia to marriage candidates, Mac will not renovate the house, or express interest in Dahlia. Likewise, Dahlia will not express interest in Mac.
|false (default) = Mac and Dahlia are not marriage candidates.
true = Mac and Dahlia become marriage candidates.
|Yosef it not a marriage candidate by default in the mod. This allows the player to become friends with Mac and encourage him to renovate a building in the older part of Stoffton where he will create an apartment for himself and a social club for use by the entire town. If you change Yosef to a marriage candidate, he will not renovate the building or open the club.
|false (default) = Yosef it not a marriage candidate.
true = Yosef becomes a marriage candidate.
