Since its first release in 2016, Stardew Valley is an agricultural simulation game that has undergone several changes. Each update brings improvements in the quality of life, new features, and other surprises. Currently, friendship and marriage are also available. Regardless of these changes, some recommendations will always remain the same.

In this beginner’s guide of Stardew Valley, we will go over some hints, tricks, strategies, and healthy practices. No matter what platform you play on, these will apply to all game versions. As the game is updated on all versions, we will update this guide accordingly.

Essential Tips for First-time Farmers

When you start playing Stardew Valley for the first time, there are many things to know which can be overwhelming. To help you adapt to farm life, here are some suggestions for beginners.

Watch tv every morning

Your cabin is equipped with a TV that has some channels to provide daily information and reminders. Check the TV every morning to learn about the following:

  • The weather report lets you know what the weather will be like tomorrow. Watch out for rainy days. You do not need to water when it’s raining, which saves stamina. Use excess energy to explore mines, forage for food, or clear land.
  • Fortune Teller is a channel that tells you how lucky you are today. On days with good luck, it is better to pull items out of the trash can or find rare items in the mine.
  • Livin’Off The Land provides you with general game tips and suggestions. Two other TV channels will unlock later in the game.

Know your season

Each season is 28 days in the game. It is crucial to track the season and how long each crop takes to grow. If you are still growing seasonal crops and the season turns over, these crops will deteriorate immediately.

Try to pay attention to which day of the season you are, particularly when growing crops that can take up to 2 weeks to cultivate. You do not want to start a new season with dead crops that cannot be sold.

Stardew Valley Friendship Level

There are few different roles in this game. To play a role in the Stardew Valley, you need to establish a friendship level with them. It can be found in the menu (indicated by the heart scale). To improve your score, you can give each character a gift or complete some character-specific tasks. Once you obtain a sufficiently high rating, all functions can be used.

Marriage breakup is a fact in life, and Stardew Valley is no exception. If you want to get a divorce in Stardew Valley, there are several methods you can take. First, you can visit the mayor’s manor and pay 50,000 g of divorce fee.

Your spouse will move out, and friendship will return to 0. The current predecessor will deny the rules of marriage and will usually irritate you. The second method is to visit the witch’s hut and pay 30,000 g to wipe the memory of your spouse.
