What are stardew valley farm names?
The stardew valley farm names is a system that assigns names to crops and animals in the popular game Stardew Valley. For example, a rabbit name is Willow. A cow is called Daisy.
Gerald’s Farm, the player’s farm in the game, has been working for years and has been having a good run of success breaking even with their crops and animals. One day however, disaster strikes with a deadly virus that kills off all of their livestock except for one pig and Gerald’s son who decides to take it upon himself to bring back life back into his father’s farm by naming all of the lost animals after his late mother – or so he says. Gerald disputes this and refuses to name any animals after his mother.
The system is gaining popularity with residents of Stardew Valley and has become the most popular, original, and best all-purpose farm naming system for the game. However, there is some debate about whether it is appropriate for Stardew Valley – as a farming platform game – to have RPG elements such as battles or character development.
No one knows what percentage of players are using the farm names system but it is estimated anywhere from 1% to 10% of players are using it. This statistic remains a mystery yet because not only can you name your animals but you can also create templates for the naming of your crops.
What are the features?
The system works across the whole of Stardew Valley and is compatible with any game setup. It is known that if your game setup is different to the default it will still work as long as it follows the same rules. There are several different types of animals and crops in stardew valley farm names. The animal types are: chicken, duck, frog, fish, goat, horse, pig, rabbit and sheep. The crop types are: alfalfa sprout, blueberry bush (s), cranberries bush (s), corn vegetable (s), raspberry bush (s), reishi mushroom mushroom stone fruit tree seedling and tangerine tree seedling.
What are the limitations?
The default farm names system is only useful if:
1. Your tractor is silo-able or if you have enough open space by your silo to store all your items. This is because it will take a long time to gather up all your livestock and put them in the barn for one reason – typing random names for each animal will be inefficient and time-consuming. Not only that but you have to keep track of which animals go with what barn as well when you’re putting them away.
2. You want to change the names of your animals and crops because you cannot rename them after they have been named by the game. For example, if you name a cow ‘Lily’ and then she has a calf which is automatically named ‘Lily Jr.’ – you cannot change the name of that calf to Anne or Julie, it will stay as Lily Jr.*
3. You hate the default system where your livestock are still numbered even post-calving.
4. You want more variety in your farm names because the default list only has 4 options – so in other words, things like “Moo” don’t make sense for this farm naming system.
5. You want to change the names of all your animals and crops but you don’t have the patience to follow through with it.
Are there any advantages?
Yes, the advantages of using stardew valley farm names are:
1. You can name more livestock than you would normally be allowed to by default.
2. You can name an animal/crop instantly by selecting its type then choosing a name from the list. For example, to rename a chicken ‘Light’, select chicken then choose Light from the list of names provided. This saves time where you don’t have to go through a long dialogue box simply to rename an animal or crop .
3. You can rename people and your spouse for free after you marry them.
4. You can assign unique types of animals to unique barns e.g. you can have an ostrich and a horse in one barn but that is not possible by default due to the system of having livestock listed as letters and numbers.
5. You can change the names of your animals and crops when they are grown (like when you harvest your corn or mature your goat) i.e. ‘Cute’ instead of ‘Barbara’ if you feel like it .
What are the disadvantages?
Yes, the disadvantages of using stardew valley farm names are:
1. If you are not a pro gamer and particularly a fan of Stardew Valley, you might find it difficult to navigate through the game to find your way around the spelling.
2. If you do not know enough people with this game in your real life or if you don’t have enough time to type random words into Google then it is said that this system is not for you.
3. There is no way of knowing which animals are female and which are male – so when they have calves, you have no idea what they will be named unless you can remember that one calf was named ‘Lily Jr’ and another was named ‘Kaitlin’.
