Automate | Stardew Valley

by Gemma

The main purpose of Automate mod is to support players pull automatically raw items from the chest and pushing their finished items into it. Your task is to place that chest next to any machine such as a furnace or crystalarium and then it will start working. You can also connect multiple machines with a chest to link them together

Machine groups

This mod can connect any number of chests and machines into Machine Group. To do it, you have to place each chest or machine touch another one

How’s about multiple chests to the same machine group? They will also all be used in the automation, the input is taken from all the chests and the output is sent to chests in this order:

  • Chests edited using Chests Anywhere to enable ‘prefer this chest for output’
  • Chests contain an item of the same type
  • or any chest


Here you can active optionally configure objects or paths as connectors (for link machines together)

Example:  wooden paths used as connectors

Junimo chests

Combine machine with chest will connect to a Junimo chest which is part of a global machine group. It works like a regular machine group include for machine priority, even if it’s spread across many locations


  • Junimo huts on your farm collect crops
  • Kegs in a shed turn them into juice/wine
  • Cellar casks age the juice/wine
  • The shipping bin collects the final output
