Eric Barone, the developer of Stardew Valley, released the latest patch for Update 1.5. Update 1.5 introduced new farms, new options, and various changes. But it also brought in a few bugs, which Update 1.5.1 fixes.

The new patch includes a fix for crashing issues that occur when you place an item anywhere that isn’t a barn or coop. It also addressed an exploit where you could regain stamina in bed while playing multiplayer.


  • The [spoiler]Crystal Cave puzzle[/spoiler] now gradually gets easier after repeated misses.
  • The "Spawn monsters on the farm" advanced game option will no longer reset when selecting a different farm type after the setting has been modified.
  • Spouses will no longer stand around looking at rug-type furniture items. This fixes a case where a spouse might stare at a Floor Divider, which could cause them to block the player's way through a narrow hallway.

General Bug Fixes:

  • Fix a crash that can occur overnight if you place the [spoiler]Auto-Petter[/spoiler] anywhere that isn't a Coop or a Barn.
  • When dismissing the [spoiler]Forge menu[/spoiler], items that can't fit in your inventory will now be dropped downwards instead of upwards, to avoid items being dropped [spoiler]into the lava.[/spoiler]
  • Stacks of items that can be redeemed at the Stardew Valley Fair now properly grant you the whole stack, instead of just one of the items.
  • Fixed various issues related to having a child named [spoiler]Leo[/spoiler] or Kent. Existing friendship points for these characters will be transferred over to your children.
  • You can longer place objects in some out-of-bounds areas in the Farmhouse.
  • Fixed pets sometimes warping out of bounds in the Farmhouse.
  • Fixed some of the new hairstyles clipping through hats.
  • Fixed an issue where purchasing the Master Slingshot would give the player a normal Slingshot.
  • You can now properly select the "Beach Farm" on the new game screen when playing with controller at minimum resolution.
  • [spoiler]Leo[/spoiler] is no longer available as a Feast Of The Winter Star gift recipient if [spoiler]he is not in town.[/spoiler]
  • Fixed a crash that occurs when demolishing Cabins.
  • Fixed being able to place objects in certain tiles that block player movement such as the rockslide that blocks the path to the Mines.
  • Fixed a bug where killing Big Slimes carrying [spoiler]hearts during Qi's Hungry Challenge, while wearing the Burglar's Ring, would cause the hearts to be collectable in the player's inventory.[/spoiler]
  • Maru no longer stands on the wrong tile outside the farm on Saturdays if you're married to her.
  • Fixed Hair #56 accidentally being replaced.
  • [spoiler]Birdie's item trade quest[/spoiler] no longer removes all stacks of an item when they are given to their intended recipient.
  • (Modding) Fixed the Return Scepter not returning to overwritten Farmhouse entry locations.

Localization Fixes:

  • Various localization fixes and changes.
  • Fixed a bug in the German localization preventing characters from completing [spoiler]Birdie's quest.[/spoiler]
  • Fixed a bug in the Spanish localization preventing [spoiler]Birdie's introduction event from completing.[/spoiler]
  • Fixed a crash when [spoiler]bombing the cave entrance next to the Field Office[/spoiler] in the Spanish localization.
  • Fixed issues with Lewis's phone call in various localizations.

Multiplayer Fixes:

  • Fixed an exploit where you could regain stamina in bed in multiplayer, even if the game was paused.
  • Fixed a rare issue that would cause the game's host to warp to an invalid position if a farmhand had just completed a Community Center bundle.
