    Those are both exciting! I'd really like to toss the male sprite clodhoppers in the bin, they look SO bad with shorts.

    Note that it takes a while to convert content packs to Get Glam format, especially ones that are still in the 1.3 farmer sprite format, so there's not many content packs yet; one of the optional downloads on Get Glam's page is the Kisekae shoe styles.

    this is not stardew but I don't want to start a thread for a game not many people might be playing

    something called Pumpkin Days popped up in my recommended steam games, and I was cautious about getting it because it's a 3d open world and my laptop isn't stellar, but it's only 15 dollars and I had a mighty craving for a harvest moon (or story of seasons, nowadays) type game. my computer is in between the game's minimum requirements and recommended. so it does occasionally crash due to video card shenanigans and sometimes it freezes and I have to exit the game, even after fiddling with the graphics settings.

    HOWEVER. ive managed to play an hour or so and I really kind of like it! it's very old timey harvest moon, reminds me of the one I tried to play on the ps2 or whatever that was. ive only gotten past the tutorial quests (talking to shopkeepers, learning how to craft, pet and feed your animals- also the animals shit and you have to pick it up so the animals don't have a nasty living space. a novel idea. I had a bag of poo and no idea if it was useful. the info button basically said 'bag of poo' so I didn't know if I could use it as fertilizer so I just... sold it. sorry mayor.)

    there appears to be a religion of sorts, there is a temple in town but whoever preaches was not there at the time. people keep referring to 'true believers' or something along those lines. not in a creepy way, but it does make me curious about the whole thing. also there is a corporation wanting to build a factory on the island (I think its an island, it is a very large land mass with two towns, you choose one at character creation. you can buy more plots in both towns and I presume you can buy a house in whichever one you did not originally choose later on.) every season the mayor gives you a list with crops and goods, when you hit one of the goals you get a bonus payment. its the middle of the night so im not remembering the wording involved. also I almost spelled night as knight.

    anyway, enjoying it so far, despite my tech issues. would love to know if any one else has tried it!

    character creation is neat as well, I don't believe there are genders? you have sliders for body parts like weight, muscles, 'gut', chest, and hips. the faces are similar to mii faces, in that you choose 'stickers' and eye color. there is only one nose at present, I think. you start with boring dress or overalls, but the clothing shop you access later has some fun stuff. the hair is also MUCH better than mii hair. mine is wavy and nicely shiny.

    Would I turn off post processing effects or what in order to turn off the rain effect? Computer really dislikes raindrops in this particular game

    welp I turned everything down and its still being a pill, I wouldn't mind a little bit of lag but when it crashes when im trying to explore anything outside of wahoo town that gets a bit...troublesome. there is stuff I gotta do, ya'll, I need materials and stuff. there must be more than this provincial life, yanno?

    hmph. i'll try once it updates more, maybe they'll fix some of that. visited the temple again, think they may not have added in the preacher tbh. there is a living space and a study for them, but no one's home. as for the god, there are statues of what look like ladies, but sort of nondescript statues, not really gleaning any personality from them. there are several paintings on the wall of one green and one blue lady. I also discovered the library. I mean, the library is probably on the town map, but I don't really read the map except to find where I am, or where the tutorial stores were.

    there is a delivery quest I have started by talking to the librarian, I've gotta track down the fisherman and deliver something. and I hope that there will be an option later to see what you've already sold for the quota, like I think I've planted and or sold all of the crops I need for spring, but it doesn't cross it off the list, so i'm guessing. the game is still pretty early in development.

    also I think one of the neighbor's cows jumped the fence to come visit me. as long as it doesn't eat my crops im down. it's name is Spam. if it stays for a week or so does it become my common law cow

    guys help me steal this cow

    Little side note: Chucklefish doesn't own the game or make any decisions for it, and their name isn't even on the startup screen anymore. It's all ConcernedApe's. It's his sleeve you want to tug if you want to give feedback :)

    Someone with the Discord handle of Mr. Podunkian is also working on the game, it has 2 developers now

    ETA: Chucklefish was just the publisher but now CA and Mr Podunk are self-publishing it

    Honey seems to be pretty much cursed or something

    Like, in vanilla it works fine. But the moment you start having custom flowers or chest categories or whatever there is the lurking possibility of the honey display name code failing in some bizarre way.

    With custom honey, sometimes it loses the prefix and decides the honey has no display name at all. The game can't save with a display-nameless item and it's impossible to pick it up, so you have to use Carry Chest to toss the container with the honey in it into the nearest body of water.

    But if you get an item that has the ID number of honey but is in a different category, eg a custom big craftable, its display name is overridden with prefixed Honey with the lack of a prefix being treated as it being Weeds Honey.
    In other words the honey code crashes on absent prefixes only if it's actual honey.

    And then finally. The weirdest one of the lot.

    If you have Chests Anywhere or Categorize Chests, you can put chests in categories.

    If the category is Honey, sometimes the chests break and their display name becomes Tuna. This is as bad for the save as nameless honey.

    I mean, it doesn't break saves or anything, but I saved a jar of Fairy Rose honey in a chest for Grange Display purposes, and after the 1.4 update it mysteriously turned into a jar of Wild Honey that refused to stack with any of my other Wild Honey.

    I stand corrected in vanilla honey is not fine

    nah but on a serious note, im sorry about your honey. I only ever use the stuff for mead so half the time I forget it's there

    Weeds Honey was so absurd and so everywhere but only for some people that it's basically now a meme, to the point of being a secret item in a JA mod.

    The nameless honey has caused a lot of people to have to toss chests in bodies of water or do save file editing.

    And the chests tuna bug was only found yesterday and was baffling

    Can the nameless honey be sold?
