    If you're a girl Elliott orders you a wine, if you're a boy he orders you an ale. What does he order for a non-binary farmer?

      hey! thank you so much for this! I started up a new game to test it out
      heres what the character creation menu looks like. (ignore the fact I spelled my own name wrong... lol) even though theres no icons for male and female, I can still click those blank spaces to change between the "male and female" bodies. I think there should be some icons there still, that say something like "body type 1 and 2" which I can easily make I just need the original cursors.xnb because I never backed up mine... whoops
      grandpa calls you grandchild! yay!

      as for other villagers, I couldnt remember who used gendered language in the beginning... except for alex. I talked to him, he still calls you "new guy/girl". I cant test marriage stuff because in my other game im not married yet...

      HOWEVER theres a huge bug in this: I cant click the bulletin board or enter any buildings, including your own house, so yeah. I just right click them and nothing happens? right clicking on people to talk and rummaging through trash still works.

        Welp, this is definitely WIP :) let me give it a look.

        Edit: Can confirm, this is a bug with the re-compiled version and not just the gender neutral one. Hmmm.

        Hmmm so it's getting the GameLocations incorrect, i.e., when you're in the farm it thinks your in the tent.. when you're in town it thinks you're in the seedshop.. not sure tbh.

        Here's the fix :)

        The hard-coded dialogue is a tiny fraction of the dialogue required to make this possible. This is why I included all of the events, quests, dialogue, mail etc .yaml files in with the modified executable :) Its a mundane, simple task that you's who want to make this mod a thing have the ability to sort out between you :) I've sorted out the more technical side of it for you :p

            If you haven't already changed it, how about Cowhand and Farmhand?

              I am so glad to see that there is actually some work being done rather than just people insulting folks for wanting a nonbinary character! It's not bizarre at all to refer to someone using 'they.'

                So glad to see progress being made here! If someone can get me the image files for the male/female buttons, I can do spritework to change them to body 1/2 vs tall/short or something similar. I just need the original image files so I can make them the same size and whatnot.

                  How can you mod something into a game if said thing you want to add doesn't exist?

                  ThatNorthernMonkey, nice job on recompiling Stardew Valley. Maybe you could share your findings with people who makes translations so that they could translate hardcoded things? That will really help them.

                  But adding things that don't necessary exist is the whole point of gaming industry. Things like ghosts, super powers.

                    Sure thing, i mean this was done by a bunch of people who held my hand so taking no credit here :p but I can provide the full source that compiles in VS to the translators if they want to translate the hard-coded things - show me where :)

                      It is amazing how this mod is coming along. Watching it come to life is exciting!! :giggle:

                        It would be helpful to make all hairstyles/apparel options accessible to gender neutral characters! :)

                          They already should be, since they aren't gender restricted to male or female- at least, not that I've seen.. The only thing I can think of is that the chest region would depend on the body type chosen.

                            I think the only restricted clothing is the bathing suits?
                            which makes me think, something neutral like a wetsuit would be nice. even if it doesnt make sense in a bathhouse lol

                              I think this would do the job just fine.

                                I imagine you'd only need to go that far if you're taking the bathysphere to Rapture. Shirt and boardshorts should be fine.

                                    My only problem with that suit for it being cool is... What the heck is with the hands? You're gonna go underwater with your bloody hands out, and the sleeves open? What even.

                                    But yeah shorts and a shirt/tank top might be best.

                                      I've been digging around in the dialogue and changing some lines to remove "guy"/"girl" and some of the gendered responses/comments/etc. for my own purposes; I could donate the files as I finish them if desired?

                                      Still a big WIP, but this is my start to Alex's dialogue, for example:

                                        "Hey, it's farmer." seems a bit strange. What about "Hey, it's you." or "Hey, it's them." (depending on who they're initially talking to)?
