stardew valley mod recs

all the mods i like and play stardew valley with! j

key

i have a ranking system in place! this is the key to it :) the reason they're ranked is sometimes when you want (or need, rip) to go lighter on resources ya gotta prioritize, yanno?

mmm three thumbs up: what i consider necessary for a playable game. these are "i absolutely can not go back to playing vanilla game bc i need these to enjoy it at all" mods lol
mm two thumbs up: not necessary per ce, but definitely improve quality of life when playing. these might provide more immersion, look much better, or add a function that makes more sense to me
