What's new in SMAPI 3.13.0 and Stardew Valley 1.5.5

SMAPI 3.13.0 and Stardew Valley 1.5.5 are now available! Here are the main highlights.


Update for Stardew Valley 1.5.5

SMAPI 3.13.0 adds full support for today's Stardew Valley 1.5.5 release. Here's what changed in the game update:

  • For players, it mainly adds Xbox Game Pass support and some quality-of-life tweaks like persistent options across saves. See the official announcement and 1.5.5 release notes for more info.
  • For mod authors, it includes major architectural changes and many modding-focused features like custom farm types, languages, spouse rooms, farmhouse renovations, and more. See migrate to Stardew Valley 1.5.5 for more info!

The SMAPI update includes full support for all of the new game features.


Stardew Valley compatibility branch support

The game now has two branches: the main branch which you'll get by default, and an optional compatibility branch for older systems. The two branches have identical content, but use different technologies.

Unfortunately SMAPI only supports the main branch of the game. There are formidable difficulties across all mods in supporting all three variations, 32-bit imposes significant restrictions on what mods can do, and the Steam hardware stats show that 99.69% of players now have 64-bit.


Console command to set farm type

With custom farm type support in 1.5.5, you might need to change the farm map for an existing save. SMAPI 3.13.0 adds a new set_farm_type console command to quickly do that in-game for any vanilla or custom farm type (see full-size image):


Full 64-bit

SMAPI is now 64-bit for all players! This should eliminate out-of-memory errors for most players with a very large number of mods.


Map overlays for C# mods

For C# mod authors, you can now apply map overlays through SMAPI's content API! This is a feature from Content Patcher that's been ported into SMAPI itself for other mods to use. See the new patchMode option in the content API documentation.
