Version 1.0.0
Initial Release.


This Anti-Social NPCs mod permits the production of new NPCs that aren’t companions with the player. They can have a timetable, a picture, an exchange… nearly everything an ordinary resident NPC has. Nonetheless, they will not appear on the Social menu and the player can’t give them gifts. This mod does nothing all alone. It is an asset for mod producers and content pack makers.

Instructions for Modders

  1. Create a new NPC as your normally would (e.g. using Content Patcher)
  2. Do not add the NPC to “Data/NPCGiftTastes”
  3. Add the NPC to “Data/AntiSocialNPCs”.  The key is the NPC’s name, and the value can be anything (e.g., “true”).
  4. Add this mod to your mod’s dependencies.

Sample Content Patcher Snippet

If you’re using Content Patcher to make a new NPC named Bob, here’s what you would add to the Changes section of your content.json file:

  “LogName”: “Bob’s AntiSocial Flag”,
  “Action”: “EditData”,
  “Target”: “Data/AntiSocialNPCs”,
  “Entries”: {
      “Bob”: true

Advanced Use

It ought to be feasible to make a NPC become amicable with legitimate utilization of “When” conditionals in Content Patcher. In the event that you add “Data/NPCGiftTastes” for your NPC, they will show up on the Social menu the following time the player converses with them. Eliminating the NPC from “Data/AntiSocialNPCs” will make them show up in the Social menu right away. This usefulness isn’t very much tried.


  • Non-social NPCs cannot use “event” type dialog. The most common event of this type is “Introduction”, which causes NPCs to say something special to the player if they meet in the first six days of the game.  Dialog that requires a certain Heart Level will also not be used, for obvious reasons. 
  • Utilization of social NPCs on occasions is untested, yet presumably turns out great. 
  • Hostile to social NPCs tolerating mission turn-ins is untested (informed me as to whether it works!).
