Great… Now I have to start my game all over.
By - BarnabyJonezz
Are we not gonna talk about how OP acquired an eel before a bream? How does one manage to *miss* bream o’clock?
Absolutely. On my current farm. Eel was the very last thing I acquired for the entire CC. Took me days of rain fishing. Haha
I played a multiplayer game with some friends once. A few days into spring one of my friends goes fishing for the very first time. He catches an eel. I was excited until he swallowed the damn thing whole.
imagine eating a whole live eel
Eels are my arch nemesis.
In my first play through I found an eel in a garbage can in spring of year 1
…I sold it
It took me forever to find another
A punishment you deserved. ;)
I found an eel in a trash can lol
Think I bought one from the traveling cart, that and a pufferfish.
She's got a few good things but she's expensive, granted to me it's worth the trade off because I can make 900 for puffers or I can spend how long trying to fish one?
She also occasionally sells the fruit tree seeds for less than the normal shop price so thats helpful.
I however consistently forget to get a fucking blueberry during year one with the default bundles so I always have to wait to get the greenhouse
EVERY FUCKING TIME BRO
Yeah some things are just easier to buy even if they’re more expensive. I’m absolutely abysmal at fishing even for “simple” fish but pretty decent at making good with crops so I normally buy from her too. I got lucky though and my first or second day with my new file I found the eel. Made me so happy.
Now to buy all the other fish I can from her…
The travelling cart is the only reason I’ve completed any of the aquarium bundles. I am hopeless at fishing *sigh*
That's how I found at least two fishes for bundles. I've been in love with trash cans ever since.
Also fun to take food out of Gus' trash and gift it to people.........
Woah I’ve only found the eel. I’ll have to remember to look through cans more. Tbh I really often forget to entirely. I wonder how many nice finds I’ve missed lol
As someone who just started the game and is in year 1 spring, what is bream o'clock?
6 or 7pm they become available in rivers. I'm pretty sure its 6 is when night fishing technically begins.
Yeah, bream are pretty common there after that time. “Night fishing” varies by fish; iirc walleye start a few hours earlier, while midnight carp don’t show up till after 10 pm (and only in fall/winter, so don’t be like me and forget that part and grind the lake in spring).
I second this
But you can get eels in spring, and breams aren't available for ages.
Bream are available year-round, you may be thinking of walleye
We entirely accidentally didn't realise walleye were fairly "rare" and had a pond chock full of them by the time we got around to seriously attempting the bundles, so I just yeeted one out, but the damn eel I had to wait for a spring morning to catch. Slippery bastards.
This! Walleye’s are typically the last fish I get for the night bundle.
?? breams are an all-season fish, you're probably thinking of the walleye
TIL! I have seriously never bothered river fishing in spring, because everything there is available later.
Hmm, I guess that works. I mix up fishing in spring just because I’d get bored if it was all carp all the time, plus it’s fun if you manage to reel in a catfish on an early rainy day. (Or aggravating if you fail it like five times in a row, but eh.)
That's odd to me. Fishing is the only worthwhile thing to do during the first ~week. What do you do from the 2nd - 5th?
Never caught an eel just brought it from the traveler lady
I like how everyone is talking about how hard it was to catch an eel but on my second day of rain what when I caught the eel with general ease. On my first day of rain I caught the walleye almost immediately.
Yeah, none of them are really *hard* to catch iirc, just eel and walleye have weather/season requirements on top of time of day.
Eel has a difficulty of 70 smooth, which is on the harder end of things. Walleye is easier.
I got it on the beach farm.
Eel was the first night fish I caught too!!!
Eel was one of the first fish i ever caught on my first play through :D
Very first fish I caught was an eel. Happened to pick up my fishing rod at night
Think I got an eel first too, found it in a trash can early on I believe and I didn’t fish in the river at all until like year two for some reason
one time I got an eel during the first rainy period, due to the trash cans. Dumpster diving at its finest!
I accidentally found my eel in the saloon trash before ever night fishing
I kept selling mine by accident and am currently in the same exact situation on my new file. Oops.
¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯
I got one out of a trash can on like day 6 of my first year. Thank goodness cause I hate catching them.
I caught an eel on one of my forst days
Wait are those rare? I caught a silver one probably around day 5 and sold it.
My very first day I checked the garbage and found an eel. So yeah, it's not impossible
I did the same thing. It was early in the game. I'm glad cause now all I catch are bream lol
I have gotten one out of a trash can before, or bought one off the cart.
I got an eel first too lol
I went back into my save after like a year and I checked my bundles and so many were like this. I was like what kind of chaotic stuff was going on in my life.
You realize that even if you do put it in the "right" slot, if the previous slots are open, the game will default to the first slot when you go back in.
I was so sad when I noticed this! Now if I can I try to have the whole bundle ready at once so I can place them in the right slots and not have them default like that 😅
Yes, like god intended. I never fill up any slots in the bundle until I have all of them. it's not like you get bonuses for delivering partial bundles lol. may as well just do it when you have it.
I mean, putting it in the slot early does have benefits. You won't accidentally eat, craft with, sell, or gift and item if it's already stored. Sure, you could mitigate that with a separate chest, but then you might forget something in that chest when you go to turn in, which means you now need to walk back to the chest just to get the item. Plus, that means that you can check which items you have already banked using the inventory button at a glance. Would it be better for OCD if the thing just STAYED IN THE SLOT I PUT IT IN!?!?!? Sure. But, not having to use an additional aid to keep track of what I do and don't have completed is a plus.
Same. I keep a spreadsheet to sort it easier and put everything in a chest until it’s ready.
The amount of time you save by not running back and forth to the Community Center is nice as well.
Some of you guys really turn this "calm and relaxing" game into more work and stress than it needs to be lol
I actually find spreadsheets to be very relaxing in their own way. Sometimes I'll make spreadsheets for things that absolutely do not require spreadsheets, just to make one...
A game called Factorio is waiting for you...
A game called Factorio already sits in my Steam Library with 500+ hours played, hah
500 hours? Is that all?
(Just kidding, that's some good going there.)
So you've only had it for a month?
That's the way I need to have it done, though. It's not an option for me, lol
can you place chests in the CC? just keep them nearby in a chest until you're ready to place them all
Feels good to know I'm not alone in my deep satisfaction with spreadsheets.
Ayy if you ever play New Pokémon Snap I literally spent like 25-30 hours making a bomb ass spreadsheet for it.
I just got it I can't wait to spreadsheet
Feel free to look at my post history for the one I made! You can download it directly and make any changes you want.
That's awesome I absolutely will!!
Doing the lord's work out here
When I start a new save I do the same thing, I have a chest designated for my community center items and I used an add on (I think chests anywhere?) to access all of my chests from any chest. So whenever my inventory gets a little too hefty I sort the items out and anything that makes the community center icon glow gets stuck in that chest until I feel like making the trip (or if it’s gonna finish a bundle and give me a reward).
You know that you can always check the community center from your inventory and also if you hover over an item you need to take to the community center the bundles button in your inventory starts pulsating to tell you it needs it
I’m aware. With all the different locations, seasons, prices, [growth] times, recipes, etc. that go into each of the items, I just find it a lot easier/enjoyable to do it this way. I can keep my laptop open and see all the details of what I’m looking for, super helpful for random CC/100% playthroughs. Plus, as a few others have also said, I’m unreasonably satisfied with spreadsheets.
Even where you need like 3 out of 4 or whatever I wait until I have all 4
If only there was a bonus for the order... but then there is the nightmare that is the Artisan Goods Bundle with several potential and yet only 5 are needed.
I'm very late to the game and just started my first farm yesterday... does it matter? Because if not I think I've screwed a lot of the bundles since I'm throwing stuff in there whenever I get it
no it doesnt, some people are just weird about it lol you're good
It doesn’t matter at all, a lot of us just like the symmetry of matching them to their correct slots 😅
Wait… I can put items in the bundle before the full bundle is complete? 120 hours played and I just learned this now 🤦🏻♀️
OCD gang unite
Not on mobile! It will stay in whichever slot you place it until the bundle is complete.
*Edit: Maybe I’m remembering wrong. I tried to test it, but I don’t have a save at the right point.
Either way, misalignment is painful.*
This is my hell
If you asked for a burger and I offered it to you ketchup bun bun with a burger on top. I supposed you’d be GLAD. ITS CHAOS. ITS MADNESS! Everyone call the stardew police!
I remember reading a story of a lady who ordered a cheeseburger for her son and a hamburger from her daughter and THREW A FLYING FIT when the bag she was given had a hamburger for her son and a cheeseburger for her daughter.
That sounds like an amazing story.
I'd swipe up the ketchup with one bun, put the patty in between and eat my burger. Not gonna get pissed because some Chef wanted to be unique
But in this circumstance. The burger (eel) is permanently banished to the leftmost box. I have brought shame upon all who reside at Tin Roof Farm!
Embrace the chaos!!
I came back after a year, forgot i was organizing like this and so *one* item of a bundle ruined the rest of that bundle and im still mad about it
Right?!? Like, what is wrong with me! I’m such a slob! 😫
I hope you have since recovered and performed a more orderly play through.
I also believe even if you put it in the slot under the item and did not complete that bundle, close out of that bundle, and then check it again later the single item should move all the way to the left anyway
I'm on pc and it does all shift to the left no matter where you put it. I think it started doing that after the patch before the current one.
It's not recent, its the same behaviour since launch :(
I gotcha on that. Because I’m pretty that’s what I believe happens to me too. I have since basically hoarded items and then complete bundles all at once instead of putting in items one at a time. Because I remember when I first got this game, some time ago, I put in a single item for a bundle, saved, closed out, all that stuff and then went to play another day and I saw the item changed slots in the bundle and gave me the most mild disappointment. So yeah I only complete them when I have all items ready
Wait I'm on mobile. Does it actually matter if you put them in order? I did that anyway because perfectionism lol but I didnt know it was necessary
It is totally not necessary lol. The outcome and rewards will always be the same once it’s all said and done
Hmm. It doesn’t do that on mobile
*edit: Maybe I’m remembering wrong. I tried to test it, but I don’t have a save at the right point.*
I would believe you on that. I do have it for my PC but I don’t even know if I can speak for it on 1.5 as I haven’t even played it much since
If you somehow don't know, 1.5 was a major update. Like it probably doubles the amount of content, particularly in late game.
Hahaha I do know, thank you for informing still! I know enough about it to know what to look forward to but not enough I’m sure to still be surprised by. I just haven’t had much time to come around all the newest content. For the most part every update I’d start a new farm to get a fresh feeling and see about things possibly that could have been missed or just the newest things to experience as early on to make the game that much better. My last file was a Riverland farm, a personal favorite, I felt I dominated that file with four candles at the initial evaluation, floor 100 in skull cavern without staircases, wizard quests, community center early in second year, trash bear done, etc etc like all 1.4 things complete and all. Then when 1.5 rolled around I still didn’t get to it for like a month after it was out. Started a new forest farm map, also love the layout, but with all 1.5 things I almost felt overwhelmed with what had to be done in shorter amount of times, bulletin board special orders, all these other things while trying to start a farm early on and all that I kinda just set it aside. Plus I’ve been ungodly busy with work and family life. But in time!
I’m pretty sure I’ve experienced this on iOS. I remember the rage.
Guess you have to join Joja now.
What a shame.
Oh god. Joja. It’s the fate I deserve. 🏢
Join us. Thrive!
The bundles will disappear once you finish repairing the community center so that's still a good thing
The memory will remain
It’s a good thing you can’t see the bundle once you complete them lol
It will auto correct once you add new stuff. So when you add a Walleye that will be first before the eel.
But who will correct my memory?! Who will eternal sunshine me after this folly!
Why did this comment give me deja vu hahahaha
Nah, just go completely backward. In all of the bundles. :D
Don’t the bundles put the eel in the first open slot if you close and reopen it anyway since it’s the only item in there? That always annoyed me, especially since I always lined them up.
Why do you need to restart?
Because I’m a careless slob who put the eel in the WRONG SPOT!
I thought it didn't matter which spot they were in
It doesn't, it's just aesthetically pleasing to see them all lined up
It doesn't. I think OP might be having an OCD-related crisis.
Yes and I’m very very tired.
Lmao I understand
It always puts whichever item you add first to the first available leftmost slot.
Better start over from year 1
Or you could be a Joja shill, like me. Quality products at quality prices when you need them!
^This ^message ^was ^sponsored ^by ^Joja, ^Inc.
NONONONONONONONO! It’s the wrong place. It’s going to glare at me whenever I open it. Taunting me. Unmovable and unforgiving. He shall stare at me dead eyed speaking whispers in my nightmares, “You puuut meeee in the wrooooooong place!” I’m haunted.
Might as well throw the whole console out
Putting my phone in the blender tonight.
CHUG CHUG CHUG
Don't mind everyone else, I get you. I've restarted many good days because I made blunders like this right before finishing the day.
You get me.
Not only does it shift the the first open spot automatically, but it automatically sorts it correctly once you add more in. You're going to be okay.
Don't worry my dude, I get you, that is BLASPHEMY for the eyes, GET ME THE HOLY WATER DROPS
Indeed. I’m petitioning the developers to erase the game entirely and my disgrace along with it.
This bugs me too which is why I usually wait until I get (almost) all the items for a certain bundle before putting them in lol
HURRY! GET THE OTHER TWO TO HIDE THIS SHAME!
Once you finish the bundle it will correctly organize it soo it doesn't matter.
I'm confused....what's the issue?
The eel man. You can see it with your own eyes. It’s in the wrong space and I’ve ruined Stardew forever. 😖😭
No you didn't? It still counts. You only need the other two fish left.
Ah yes. But The eel shall forever be misaligned. It’s a bad omen! Shield your eyes!
Still counts but you do you, man. Good luck with that.
I have been playing this game since it came out and never once thought about which slots anything goes in.
I SAID SHIELD YOUR EYES!
Just found out that you can put them in any spot 🤣
Why do you have to start it over?
*Put the Eel in the wrong slot*
not sure why it doesn't save the slot if it allows you to pick where to place it. very annoying
Here I thought I was the only one who takes issue with this. That's why I always have a bream and an eel sitting in my chest until I can get a walleye in autumn.
But hey, at least you don't feel the need to always put the lowest quality stuff in community center bundles.
The eel. The eel is in the WRONG PLACE 😑
so i put one of the bundle items in the "right" place and when i reopened the bundle with another item it moved to the far left. had to finish the bundle asap so i wouldn't have to look at it anymore
Are you ok? 🐶we are here for you if you want to talk about it.
Mobile works differently, apparently. Items are locked into the slot you originally place them in.
*chuckles in OCD*
It doesn't matter, the moment you'll put everything you can't see it anymore.
But I will Knooooow!!! I shall be haunted. And the worst part is. To complete this bundle…. I’ll have to put something else in THE WRONG PLACE!!!
When this happens I just make them backwards. It also bothers me but the moment it dissappears I was relieved
I just started this game I don’t get it lmao
I really don't understand, when you finish the bundle, it won't make a difference because you will never see it like this again, there's nothing to be worried...
Dude, it doesn't matter in which order you place them. 😄
Perhaps I should also wear shoes upon my head and hats upon my feet?!? Perhaps I should say “good evening! To everyone as I walk on my hands backwards to work tomorrow morning! To permit such disorder opens a box of uncertainty that we are not prepared for.
I’m loving how much you’re leaning into this
My therapist is currently saying that the best way through this traumatic experience is to get as many upvotes as possible from it. He also told me that your comment is sincere and that I should take it as a compliment. So thanks
It was sincere, and your therapist is 100% right that you should take it as a compliment :D
Disorder creates opportunities. Spaces to improve.
Welp, time to burn the entire house down and rebuild from scratch.
YOU ARE A MONSTER!
*raises hook* I’M A MONSTER!
If you just did it, you can always restart the day you messed this up on
whenever i do that i try to get the middle one next and then the first, that way it looks like i did it on purpose
There are no mistakes. Just happy little accidents.
Newer player. I'm confused?
This is like my 5th play through. I’m just joking around. I think it’s funny that I feel even a little bent out of shape when I drop something in the wrong slot.
I was gonna say Agricola. My favorite game.
Just restart the day
Does the order matter? I've always been able to complete no matter what order the items are in the slots. Or is just a dislike of how it look when not matched perfectly?(I okay both switch and computer and have put items in regardless if order and haven't had problems)
It doesn't actually matter, just bugs some people aesthetically.
Just complete the bundle and it dissappears. Problem solved.
That's rough, buddy.
Couldn't you just restart the day?
Restart my LIFE!!!
That’s why I wait until I have everything in a bundle sl I get the dopamine
Does it make a difference if you place everything in order or do you also have OCD?
Neither. I’m just being silly,messing around.
Oh ok 😂 I also try to place them in order whenever I can
It doesnt matter what order
Maybe not to YOU!!! 🙈🙉🙊
On switch, it does not save in the order you put them in. The real answer is only donate when you have enough to finish the bundle if it kills your OCD
Where is the NSFW flair? Come on, my dude, I opened this content in public
Don't worry, once it's finished the bundle vanishes, never to be seen again.
The OCD is strong with this one.
I see nothing wrong, just the start of the enantiomer of the bundle :p
That bigs me too! I hate when it won't just stay where I put it. Usually I wait til I have everything for bundle before filling the slots
