NPC Map Locations Mod
NPC Map Locations Mod
Shows NPC locations on the map. Uses a modified map page that is much more accurate to the game. Includes various settings to customize when to show NPCs. Includes a lot of support for custom mods. Includes a minimap HUD that can be resized in the mod menu and moved around with ALT + drag with mouse.
FOR MULTIPLAYER, THE HOST MUST HAVE THE MOD INSTALLED.
Note: you can’t see the NPCs move around in single player because the game pauses when the map is opened.

Duplicate villagers when using other mods with NPC tracking (UI Info Suite & Foxyfficiency)
UI Info Suite and Foxyfficiency have a feature to show villagers, and as a result having it installed along with this mod will show duplicate villagers. To continue using this mod, there are options in UI Info Suite and Foxyfficiency to disable just the NPC tracking (look at the respective mod pages for more info).
Map doesn’t load/different map shows instead of Mod Map
This is most likely due to a conflict with a Content Patcher mod that replaces the map. You will have to manually remove the map from the conflicting Content Patcher mod (see Using Recolored Maps above) to resolve the conflict.
Compatibility with Stardew Valley Expanded (and other mods that add custom locations)
Stardew Valley Expanded adds new locations like BlueMoonVineyard. NPC Map Locations does not know where to draw custom locations on the map unless you modify the config file.
