    FLO
    New Custom NPC


    [INTRODUCTORY VIDEO]


    Watching is suggested, as the video gives some backstory as to why Flo is in town.
    [FEATURES]
    An entirely new NPC now roams Pelican Town!
    - He has a custom sprite!
    - He has custom portraits!
    - He even has custom dialogue!
    - He also has a very dull CUSTOM schedule!
    - He even participates in three of the festivals! (Flower Dance, Dance of the Moonlight Jellies and Feast of the Winterstar)*
    - And, last but not least, he has a custom heart event!

    * Only with the SMAPI version.

    [HOW TO INSTALL]
    -XNB MOD-

    Make a back up of your Content folder and of your savefile. Extract the rar in your game folder and overwrite everything.
    Now comes the hard part. Make sure to follow the exact process.

    - Download Notepad++
    - Go in the AppData/Roaming/StardewValley/Saves folder
    - Open the folder of the save you want Flo to appear in
    - Open, with Notepad++, the file that contains both the name of your character and some numbers (NOT THE "_old" FILE!)
    - Now click on this button -> [​IMG] <-
    - Copy the following code in the "Find what" bar:
    Code:
    <GameLocation><characters><NPC><name>Gus</name><isEmoting>false</isEmoting><isCharging>false</isCharging><willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot>true</willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot><isGlowing>false</isGlowing><coloredBorder>false</coloredBorder><flip>false</flip><drawOnTop>false</drawOnTop><faceTowardFarmer>false</faceTowardFarmer><faceAwayFromFarmer>false</faceAwayFromFarmer><ignoreMovementAnimation>false</ignoreMovementAnimation><scale>1</scale><timeBeforeAIMovementAgain>0</timeBeforeAIMovementAgain><glowingTransparency>0</glowingTransparency><glowRate>0</glowRate><Position><X>1152</X><Y>384</Y></Position><Speed>2</Speed><IsEmoting>false</IsEmoting><CurrentEmote>0</CurrentEmote><defaultMap>Saloon</defaultMap><loveInterest>null</loveInterest><birthday_Season>summer</birthday_Season><age>0</age><manners>0</manners><socialAnxiety>0</socialAnxiety><optimism>0</optimism><gender>0</gender><id>9</id><homeRegion>2</homeRegion><daysUntilBirthing>-1</daysUntilBirthing><daysAfterLastBirth>-1</daysAfterLastBirth><birthday_Day>8</birthday_Day><moveTowardPlayerThreshold>0</moveTowardPlayerThreshold><isInvisible>false</isInvisible><followSchedule>true</followSchedule><datable>false</datable><datingFarmer>false</datingFarmer><divorcedFromFarmer>false</divorcedFromFarmer><daysMarried>0</daysMarried><DefaultFacingDirection>2</DefaultFacingDirection><DefaultMap>Saloon</DefaultMap><DefaultPosition><X>1152</X><Y>384</Y></DefaultPosition><IsWalkingInSquare>false</IsWalkingInSquare><IsWalkingTowardPlayer>false</IsWalkingTowardPlayer></NPC></characters><objects /><terrainFeatures /><debris /><name>Saloon</name><waterColor><R>60</R><G>100</G><B>127</B><A>127</A><PackedValue>2139055164</PackedValue></waterColor><isFarm>false</isFarm><isOutdoors>false</isOutdoors><isStructure>false</isStructure><ignoreDebrisWeather>false</ignoreDebrisWeather><ignoreOutdoorLighting>false</ignoreOutdoorLighting><ignoreLights>false</ignoreLights><treatAsOutdoors>false</treatAsOutdoors><numberOfSpawnedObjectsOnMap>0</numberOfSpawnedObjectsOnMap></GameLocation>

          Seems pretty cool! Its one of the most unique mods Ive seen, good job for adding content from scratch.

              You can find him near the Saloon almost everyday, unless it's raining.
              He'll come out of the Saloon itself at around 9:00 AM (he's lazy).

              Thank you! This isn't the complete mod yet, more like a demo - with the complete mod he'll be marriageable (with means I'll have to write marriage dialogue for him) and I'll add at least another 4 heart events, if not more.
              I'd like to create a more involved storyline with joja, you know.

                I downloaded him and the Jas mod perfectly. So far it works great, but oddly... Sebastian's name is "Sabrina" now LOL!

                    waaah this is so cool!! :love:
                    By heart event, you mean just a singular npc event right? Not as in he is a potential bachelor?

                      Oops, that might be because I accidentally edited the wrong NPCDispositions file! :rofl:
                      I'll fix that right away.

                      Thank you!

                      Thanks! And yes, by heart event I mean just the singular npc event I added.
                      But he will become a potential bachelor (or at least, that's what I intend to make him), after I add at the very least another 4 heart events.

                            Some basic questions first.
                            - Did you open the right file? The one that goes "NameOfCharacter_ID"? The file with the name "NameOfCharacter_ID_old" is not the right one.
                            - Did you copy the code exactly, without spaces either before or after?
                            - Do you have Stardew Valley updated to 1.1 (or 1.11)? A few things seem to have changed in how the game deals with save files with the new update.
                            - To add to the previous question, is your savefile a new one made with SDV 1.1?

                            Save editing can be a bit annoying to deal with. If you really can't get it to work, I could try doing it for you if you send me the save file.

                              I opened the right one, yes. I copied the code exactly. Got v1.11. And the file was made with 1.0, if I recall correctly. I made a new character to see if I was doing something wrong out of frustration, and he showed up in the new save. (Though his disposition didn't show up. I KNOW I added it though...)

                                Well, that's weird.
                                You could try adding the code manually, if you want. I suggest you get the XML Tools plugin for Notepad++ to do the following, because otherwise the code can be a bit messy. Anyway, here's what you do:
                                - Open your savefile
                                - Click on "Plugin" -> "XML Tools" -> "Pretty print (xml only - with line breaks)" and wait for the program to finish
                                - Click on "Search" -> "Find"
                                - In the "Find what" bar, type
                                Code:
                                <NPC><name>Gus</name>
                                - Now, copy & paste the following code before the "<NPC>" tag:
                                Code:
                                <NPC><name>Florence</name><isEmoting>false</isEmoting><isCharging>false</isCharging><willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot>true</willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot><isGlowing>false</isGlowing><coloredBorder>false</coloredBorder><flip>false</flip><drawOnTop>false</drawOnTop><faceTowardFarmer>false</faceTowardFarmer><faceAwayFromFarmer>false</faceAwayFromFarmer><ignoreMovementAnimation>false</ignoreMovementAnimation><scale>1</scale><timeBeforeAIMovementAgain>0</timeBeforeAIMovementAgain><glowingTransparency>0</glowingTransparency><glowRate>0</glowRate><Position><X>1352</X><Y>384</Y></Position><Speed>2</Speed><IsEmoting>false</IsEmoting><CurrentEmote>20</CurrentEmote><defaultMap>Saloon</defaultMap><loveInterest>null</loveInterest><birthday_Season>winter</birthday_Season><age>0</age><manners>2</manners><socialAnxiety>1</socialAnxiety><optimism>1</optimism><gender>0</gender><id>34</id><homeRegion>0</homeRegion><daysUntilBirthing>-1</daysUntilBirthing><daysAfterLastBirth>-1</daysAfterLastBirth><birthday_Day>22</birthday_Day><moveTowardPlayerThreshold>0</moveTowardPlayerThreshold><isInvisible>false</isInvisible><followSchedule>true</followSchedule><datable>false</datable><datingFarmer>false</datingFarmer><divorcedFromFarmer>false</divorcedFromFarmer><daysMarried>0</daysMarried><DefaultFacingDirection>0</DefaultFacingDirection><DefaultMap>Saloon</DefaultMap><DefaultPosition><X>1352</X><Y>384</Y></DefaultPosition><IsWalkingInSquare>false</IsWalkingInSquare><IsWalkingTowardPlayer>false</IsWalkingTowardPlayer></NPC>

                                - Save the file

                                It should work now.

                                  He definitely works now! Though I couldn't download the plugin, since every time the page loaded, Chrome crashed. Oh well; at least he works now!

                                    I love this mod, it's really amazing how you added a completely new character! I think I did something wrong during the process of putting him in my game though, because instead of just being in the one save file I put him in, he's showing up in every save file. I think it's because I replaced files in the wrong Stardew Valley folder because I'm really new to this whole modding thing haha

                                        Glad he works! I swear that sometimes stuff stops working for no adequate reason.

                                        How did that even happen? :rofl: And thanks!

                                        If adding him to your savefile is the problem, as I said before, I could try adding him myself if you send me your savefile.

                                          Ohh I think I found my issue! I unzipped the file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Stardew Valley which I think is wrong but I wasn't quite sure what you meant by game folder since there's a few folders I'd consider the game folder but that's because I'm not very educated in all this modding stuff so far:p
