What it do:
This changes the scarecrow and all 8 of the rarecrows in the game to be cats on different pedestals/cat climbing tower thingies. Its pretty darn cute. Who wouldn't want ferocious guard kitties to keep the crows at bay?
Here's what changes:
**The screenshot sort of makes it look like there's strange white pixels under the pedestal for some cats, but its just a compression problem with my image, those spaces are transparent in game.
- Download the mod
- Extract the archive
- Go to Stardew Valley/Content/TileSheets
- Replace the Craftables.xnb file with the one from the download
**You can easily create a backup of your original Craftables.xnb file by renaming it to something silly. I do Craftables.xnbOLD for myself.
Lots of thanks to Korokos for their permission to re-use their work on many different cat breeds in their Longhair Cats mod which inspired me to make this (even if I didn't use the sprites, I was still heavily influenced).
Likewise to DibJib for giving me permission to use the Nyan cat sprite from their Nyan Pet Cat mod. Its lovely and basically reproduced here as-is.
Also to Crazy_Leen for their Studio Ghibli Re-Textures mod, where I got the idea to replace my own scarecrows to be something cuter than what came with the game.
Lastly to WildSpirits for the calico breed available on their Pet Replacements mod, which inspired me to create my own version of the breed.
New cat model, reworked pedestals, new tails for each kitty, misc. tweaks & edits to individual sprites
