Version 1.01

  • Fixed a bug that prevented you from seeing one of Sterling’s last events (and hence from progressing his tale).
  • For compatibility with Shaved Ice and Frozen Treats, “Fruit Parfait” was changed to “Berry Parfait.”
  • The ARV Crew has sent 5 new letters.
  • I made Sterling’s cheat sheet (it’s in the posts!)
  • The RSV Ember of Resolutions problem has been fixed!
  • SMAPI was irritated by my version and refused to load ARV.

Version 1.00
Mod Release!


Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to enjoy dancing in the rain.

TW / Alcoholism / Drug Addiction / Suicide Ideation / Minor Cursing

Have you ever felt like you were on your own? Adrift? It’s OK to have no idea what the next stage of your life will bring. After all, we’re all so caught up in our own thoughts that we forget to interact with others around us. Always Raining Mod is about learning to develop via the people in our lives, learning to live with ourselves when we can’t love ourselves, and a ridiculous lot of puns.

New custom NPCs

Come spend some time with the Coopers!
Only Sterling is currently marryable, while Mia and Henry are antisocial NPCs.


Meet Sterling, a 27-year-old guy who has just returned to the Valley following a bad run at Zuzu City. He’s temporarily returned home and is staying with his cousin Henry in the hopes of making a fresh start. When letting go of a beer bottle is more difficult than ever.


Henry, Sterling’s somewhat younger cousin who works on a farm near Grampleton, is the focus of this episode. While he has moved away from home to live with Mia and, more lately, Sterling, he still works on the family farm every day. He’s a workaholic, so you’ll have a hard time locating him at home.


Meet Mia, a 26-year-old Agronomist from Gallus City working on a contract in Grampleton who has a passion for gardening, beautifully designed cuisine, and is the Cooper House’s certified single brain cell. A young lady with a straight head and broad shoulders navigating the challenges of her own gender identification.

An immersive storyline

Always Raining Mod in Stardew Valley will tell the story of the three main protagonists. Sterling’s tale is included in this initial release, which includes +10 heart events (varying from 0 to 10 hearts – DOUBLE the amount in vanilla), over 60 costumes, letters, 100 locational notes, and more!

13+ new recipes

Enjoy the Cooper family’s happiness with Mia’s cute cooking, Sterling’s cocktails, and Henry’s family recipes! Please keep in mind that some of these are delivered by Mia and Henry and so cannot be collected until their marriageable statuses are released. They are, however, all already a part of the game!

Always Raining Mod is SVE compatible, as are Stardew Valley Expanded, Ridgeside Village, and Zuzu City. As well as any other expansion mod. Please notify us of any incompatibility.

Immersive Shane and Shane in General — Due to the way ARV handles conversation, it is compatible with Immersive Shane or any Immersive character. However!
Sterling’s narrative works best when you max up his hearts first, then Shane’s. It won’t be as immersive if you don’t.
