In this article, we will introduce some new locations in Stardew Valley Expanded (SVE).
If you haven’t installed Grandpa’s Farm or Immersive Farm 2 and are using other farm maps, Grandpa’s Shed is located below the Bus Stop. The Shed is initially abandoned and needs to be unlocked by completing tasks.
The first floor of the Shed functions like a cellar, where you can place casks to age wine, cheese, and other products, or use kegs for brewing. The second floor serves as a greenhouse, which can accommodate six Iridium Sprinklers, and there is a water trough nearby for refilling your watering can.
Walking to the right of the Shed leads to Pelican Town. Heading up takes you to the Bus Stop. In SVE, the desert has some new changes. The Oasis is now located above the bus station, and the entrance to the Skull Cavern is below the bus station. Continuing down from the Skull Cavern leads to the Sand Dragon’s location.
The desert map is larger than the original, and you have to walk a considerable distance to reach the Three Pillars. A new house has been added next to Pierre’s General Store. This large house is home to Olivia, the mother, and Victor, her son, both new NPCs in SVE. On the top floor of the house, there is an exquisite bathroom with a massage bed. Leaving the bathroom, you’ll find a long hallway.
The hallway has a telephone and several oil paintings hanging on the walls. This room is Olivia’s bedroom, filled with painting supplies, showing her love for painting. Victor’s bedroom has numerous books, with his diary hidden in a corner. From the diary, we learn that Victor turned down an internship from a renowned company without telling his mother, as he wants to pursue his passion.
The house even has a small library where Victor often reads. To the right of the library, there is a fireplace for warmth, and a cellar filled with kegs and wine. In the corner is an order list, revealing that Olivia has purchased a lot of wine for storage.
Below the library is a living room with a large TV and a Super Nintendo console. Cheat codes for a video game can also be found here. To the right of the living room is their kitchen, stocked with expensive food. Olivia and Victor are both marriage candidates.
Crossing the stone bridge and heading left takes you to the Blue Moon Vineyard, while following the path down leads to the beach. Walking further left brings you to the Forest Mine.
Sophia, another new NPC in SVE, lives in this house and is also a marriage candidate. At the top of the house is her deceased parents’ bedroom – they passed away in a car accident. Sophia’s bedroom has a vanity and some adorable dolls, with a note underneath expressing her deep longing for her parents.
Sophia uses this room for making clothes, and it has a catalog where you can purchase Blue Moon Wine, Aged Blue Moon Wine, Sprinklers, and Quality Sprinklers. To the right is the living room, with a large TV, fireplace, and a dusty board game. Further right is the kitchen, where the fridge is stocked with Sophia’s favorite dish, Orange Chicken.
