Notable things that the mod adds include a new location, 24 interactable NPCs with dialogues and dynamic schedules, new variety of fish and forage, new shops and stores, new items to collect and more.

The new region is called Ridgeside Village and it has a rather calming and cool feel to it. You can see the location is well made with the player and a sandbox experience in mind.

As for the 24 NPCs which have been added, they are a small community of their own and each of them have independent dialogues as well as dynamic day-night schedules. Apart from that, 14 of these NPCs will be non-marriageable, while 10 will be marriageable. Each of these NPCs have been carefully crafted to suit a personality type, which is something really unexpected from a mod.

As the creator of the mod explains, "A small town located on the west side of Stardew Valley, Go up the stairs in the Bus Stop and start your hike to the village! Meet new interesting people with immersive backstories, engaging dialogue and exciting events! Discover new forage, stories, secrets, maybe even fall in love? Who knows?! A lot can happen in Ridgeside Village!"

You can find the mod at Nexus Mods. Additionally, the mod will work in singleplayer, multiplayer, existing save files, SVE and almost all expansions of the game.
