BFAV Frog Friends
Adds a number of frog friends as coop animals via Paritee’s Better Farm Animals Variety. Works with Stardew Valley 1.4 and the latest (unofficial) version of BFAV!
Do you love frogs? Do you want the ability to have a completely unnecessary number of different types of frogs on your farm? Then this is the mod for you! Wow, it’s amazing that this is an unmet need anyone has ever had, or ever will have.
This started as an update to sapphicursa’s BFAV Frogs mod, as they kindly gave me permission to make it compatible with SDV 1.4 and the latest version of BFAV, but then I accidentally redid all the sprites, added 6 new species of frogs, and just generally made a mess of things. Whoops.
♡ A whopping 12 different types of frogs, both mundane and rare, including colorful varieties of poison dart frogs and tree frogs
♡ Frogs are available for any size coop, so if you want them right away, knock yourself out! They’re available from Marnie and cost 2500 G each
♡ These industrious little creatures will find forage items and gems for you! Check below the spoiler tag in the next section for specifics
Okay, But Tell Me More About the Frogs
For those of you who thirst for more frog knowledge, the species that are included in this mod are as follows. I’ve included links to Wikipedia and the Latin names in case anyone wants to look up some Neat Frog Facts™!
♡ American Green Tree Frog (Dryophytes cinereus)
♡ Red-Eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis callidryas) — a.k.a. the best frog and my personal favorite!
♡ Clown Tree Frog (Dendropsophus sarayacuensis)
♡ Blue Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates tinctorius azureus)
♡ Golden Poison Dart Frog (Phyllobates terribilis) — the largest species of poison dart frog, they clock in at a whopping 55 cm (2.16 in)
♡ Strawberry Poison Dart Frog (Oophaga pumilio) — specifically, the “blue jeans” morph, which is predominant in the wild
♡ Amazonian Poison Dart Frog (Ranitomeya amazonica)
♡ Purple Fluorescent Frog (Atelopus hoogmoedi nassaui) — okay, technically this one is actually a toad (a super, super beautiful toad)
♡ Fire-Bellied Toad (Bombina orientalis) — …and this one is actually a frog, because common names are like the Wild West
♡ Pale Frog (Litoria pallida)
♡ Northern Glass Frog (Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni) — I have taken some liberties and this fellow is partially transparent all over!
♡ Desert Rain Frog (Breviceps macrops) — just please for the love of all that is holy click on this with your sound on
TL;DR: When I was little I wanted to be a herpetologist, and now you all have to suffer for it. You’re welcome.
Want to know what they bring home for you? Click below. Please enjoy the thought of a teeny tiny frog somehow finding and bringing said items to you. That’s how much they love you.
This mod requires Paritee’s Better Farm Animal Variety (BFAV)! The main mod has not been updated on NexusMods to be compatible with SDV 1.4, but you can get the latest unofficial version (3.0.0-unofficial.7-mouseypounds) here.
There are two different versions of this mod! If you just want an updated, working version of the original BFAV Frogs mod with none of my new nonsense, you can download it under the section for Optional Files. Otherwise, you want the Main File, which will include everything listed above. Don’t install both! They will probably conflict with one another in a way I haven’t tested but which I’m sure would be just awful.
Once you’ve decided which version you want, simply download that file, extract it, and place the resulting folder (either “[BFAV] Frog Friends” or “[BFAV] Frogs”) in your Mods directory. That’s it!
