Community Center Helper
Adds in-game suggestions of where to find items for the Community Center when you hover over them in the bundle menu.
Need help finding items for the Community Center bundles, but don’t want to look it up online every time? This mod adds suggestions of where to find items when you hover over/highlight them in the bundle menu!
Suggestions are generally tailored to your progress in the game. For example, if an item requires an unlearned cooking recipe, it will tell you how to get the recipe; otherwise, it will tell you the ingredients. It tries to make it clear when there are requirements (such as skill levels) that must be met in before the item can be obtained.
Most item sources are included, but not every possible one – I prioritized the easiest and most reliable ways to get each item. This notably excludes things like the Traveling Cart, which can randomly provide many of the items required for bundles, but cannot be relied upon. I also don’t account for bundle rewards, since they’re one-time and are often changed by mods.

(Even in unsupported languages, item and character names refer directly to the data, so those will use the proper names for that language.)

User Configuration (edit config.json)
ShowSpoilers (true or false)
By its nature, this mod spoils certain things about the game. However, by default (“ShowSpoilers”: false), it tries to conceal things that could be seen as “surprises” for new players, like areas and characters you haven’t yet encountered. If you want all the information regardless of your progress in the game, you can set this to true.
Things that are still spoiled with ShowSpoilers disabled: Names of items and machines, requirements for getting recipes, the existence of some constructions.
Things that ShowSpoilers will hide as appropriate: Names of areas you haven’t yet reached, unknown shops, unencountered monsters.
Bundle Mod Support
In addition to the bundles in the base game, the following bundle-altering mods are supported.
EasierBundles (by Quirinea)
Alternative Bundles (by Quirinea)
Vegan Community Center Bundles (by Yuki Del Valle)
difficulty option for bundles (by Axisdubois)
Community Center Bundle Overhaul (by 7Yrs, SMAPI version by Chaos234)
Very Hard version of Community Center Bundles for 1 year challenge (by kners)
Adventurer’s Bundle to Gemologist’s Bundle (by LenneDalben)
The Impossible Bundle (by Mossy)
Minerva’s Harder Community Center Bundles
Challenging Community Center Bundles (for PPJA) (by Alja)
Note that even unsupported bundle mods should have at least partial support. Any items not covered will just not show any suggestions.
Possible Mod Conflicts
I tried to have this mod directly reference the data when possible, so some things changed by mods (like recipe unlock requirements that aren’t mail-based) may be automatically supported. But for the most part, suggestions are hardcoded according to the base game, and could be inaccurate or incomplete when using mods that make major changes. (In just a few cases, there are suggestions that are only listed when specific mods are installed, but I’m absolutely not committing to covering everything like that.)
Besides that, however, the mod does very little to the code and is unlikely to break the game in combination with anything.
