How to change farm settings on a Stardew Valley server

Changing farm settings on a Stardew Valley server allows players to customize their gameplay experience. It provides the flexibility to modify various aspects of the farm, such as the layout, starting resources, and difficulty settings. Players can adjust these settings to suit their preferences, whether they want a larger farm area, more starting money, or a more challenging gameplay experience.

Note Changing the settings midgame requires a new save to take effect.

Note Make backups locally to save any necessary files.
