How to Install Stardew Valley Expanded on your Stardew Valley Server

Stardew Valley Expanded is a fanmade expansion for Stardew Valley - containing many new NPCs, locations, events, fish and more! It's a great way to enjoy a whole new Stardew Valley experience with friends! A full overview of the new features can be found on their Nexus Mods page.

Due to some of the limitations caused by hosting Stardew Valley on a rental server, you are unable to manually install Stardew Valley Expanded on your Shockbyte server. However, we have created a config option to automatically do this.

Enabling Stardew Valley Expanded

Stardew Valley Expanded can be enabled using your server's Stardew Valley Server Settings file.

  1. Access your control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files.
  3. Click Stardew Valley Server Settings.
  4. Set the Stardew Valley Expanded dropdown to Enabled.
  5. You are also required to generate a new farm, to do this ensure you change the Farm Name to a new value.
  6. Click Save and Start your server.
