Mod Description

Archipelago Randomizer for Stardew Valley!

Archipelago is a multiworld multi-game randomizer that shuffles items and unlocks from the games of an unlimited number of players, into each other's worlds.

StardewArchipelago is an implementation of Stardew Valley for Archipelago.

Archipelago is a multiworld multi-game randomizer. It is a cross-game modification system which randomizes different games, then uses the result to build a single unified multi-player game. Items from one game may be present in another, and you will need your fellow players to find items you need in their games to help you complete your own.

Installation Guide
Future Versions

The official released version of Stardew Archipelago is version 2.
Version 3 already exists as a pre-release, and can be played using a bit of technical ability. Instructions can be found on Archipelago Discord Server

Version 3 includes features such as:
Seasons Randomizer, Seeds Randomizer, Museumsanity, Friendsanity, 2 new goals, and several quality of life improvements

Version 4 is currently being worked on, and suggestions are still welcome!


Local (several players on the same farm) Multiplayer is not supported at this time. The intended Archipelago experience is cross-world multiplayer. In the case of Stardew, this means having several players on their own Stardew Valley Farm.

You can use the in-game chat to talk with other players even in different games entirely, as long as their game also supports chatting.
You can gift item to and from other Stardew Valley players through the mail system.

Other Mods

While you can use other mods with StardewArchipelago, it has not been designed using other mod support in mind.
Small, Quality of Life mods are usually welcome, while Big overhaul mods that interact directly with the same game elements as StardewArchipelago can cause conflicts and bugs.

If a problem arises, it is usually easy to disable the conflicting mod and continue playing.
