Game developer ConcernedApe recently launched a video trailer to give a glimpse of the major updates in Stardew Valley update 1.1. The update packs in lots of new features – like certain characters getting additional music, events and updates, unique outdoor area for spouses, a new quest and much more.
The 1.1 update adds features like Shed building – an empty room that can be decorated, filled with kegs etc, a “Mill” building that can be used to turn wheat into flour and beets into sugar overnight. The update also adds a new quest that can be started after the Community Center or JojaMart quest is complete. The quest is triggered when you enter the Railroad area. The update also adds several new locations that are related to these quests. With the update, “Iridium-star” level quality is attainable for aged goods, fruit, forage items and animal products. You can now place honey in a keg to make mead. You will now see two new fish – Void Salmon and Slimejack and also get to choose to color your chests with one of 20 color options.
The update doesn’t end yet. There are many more features. Divorce can now be filed from a little book in mayor’s house. You can now wallpaper the little hallways in your upgraded house. You can also place void eggs in mayonnaise machines to make void mayonnaise. The update also adds two new “Lost Books”. After you beat Journey Of The Prairie King, you can start over in a harder mode. The new update makes the game more practical – giving someone a gift on their birthday will never make your spouse jealous.
The Stardew Valley update 1.1 also brings in certain balancing changes. All animal products value are increased by 25%. The Rancher profession increases the value of animal products by 20%, as compared to 10% before the update, Artisan profession increases the value of goods by 40%, Blacksmith profession increases the value of meta bars by 50%. The value of Blueberry has been reduced to 50g, Starfruit to 750g, Cranberry to 75g and Ancient Fruit to 550g. The update also comes with several bug fixes. For example, wild plums are now labeled as fruit. Grandpa’s Shrine will now properly give the reward fro reaching 4 candles. Crashes with Moonlight Jellies engagement have been fixed. When you place a bomb and the player leaves the area, the debris will no longer erroneously appear in the new area. Watering a trough in slime hutch will not have any effect on the troughs in other slime hutches.
