    Well, I guess it's time to unleash the Kevin.

    Kevin is NOT a replacement mod but a completely new NPC. Therefore, the mod is in a really early stage and there will be bugs.
    He's a chubby, somewhat strange anime-nerd with good intentions. Every tuesday, he will share his Gumdrops with you. Every saturday, he gifts you either a snail, a geode or a Miner's Treat. On his birthday, he might even gift you something special (at least according to him).

    The reason why I made this NPC is because I want him to be somewhat of a trader. You gift him something he likes and he gifts you a unique item back. Right now, the only new items are his Gumdrops and the birthday gift, but I want to add more stuff, even seeds.

    Bugs and problems:
    The biggest problem is that I can't find a way to make him accept gifts, even though I added all values. I think it's because I can't bring him to say his Introduction Message, instead, he just puts out the regular daily text. Let's just hope that I'll find a way to fix that in the future.

    Extract the archive in your Stardew Valley folder and overwrite all files in /Content. Make sure to back up files you still need.
    This mod replaces the following files:
    Right now Kevin isn't compatible with mods that overwrite the same files.

    After you extracted all files, open your savegame file
    Here, you have to search for the entry </GameLocation><GameLocation xsi:type="Town">
    Replace the entry <character /> right behind it with the following text:







    That's it. So don't make Kevin sad and check out this mod!

              Aw, he's cute! I like the idea behind this. Good luck getting it working!

              This is the only custom/new NPC I've seen. Has anyone else figured out how to do this?

                Sorry, I don't know why I haven't been having any luck with search bars or googling. The results just don't come up, even when I know the thread exists and am not being overly-specific. Weird!

                Thank you. :)

                      Hey, can I pull Kevin into the Refugee NPCs mod?
                      Its essentially a collection of NPCs that have been created but aren't actively maintained. You wouldn't be giving up future creative rights, it'll just keep the "character" alive by putting him in a scenario where he is a refugee from the war in a temporary hostel. I'll try to keep him as close to the description/conversations you have created but he'll be much simpler in terms of events and such.
